Fred Patten likes our book! – Gave it 4 Stars

Trap Me - Finally a Happy Gay Furry Adventure Cover Illustration Aidan Zack  Elkin Chris Cooper

Fred Patten, a historian of science fiction, fantasy, anime, manga and furry creations, has reviewed “Trap Me! – Finally, a Happy Gay Furry Adventure” and wrote his opinion of it over to Dogpatch Press – Link Here.

He also was kind and left a 4 Star Review over on Amazon, right over here.

Why are we excited over this? Well, he’s just one of the most respected literary critics of our fandom! You can read more about him and his awesome work over on his wiki page here.

Thank you, Fred, for taking the time to read our book and being so nice to us – two silly, young writers who don’t know much about art and who just want to add something good to this world. It’s people like you and our brilliant fans who give us the strength to go forth in our creations.

*big furry hug* 😀

Developfur Diary #01 – Trap Me – The Video Game

Trap Me Game RPG Furry Adventure ELKIN

Here it is, friends! Our first DevFur Diary!

The game is still in its very early stages, so we don’t know what to expect. What YOU can expect is a really fun time playing the upcoming game.

As you may already know, the story takes place between Trap Me 1 and Trap Me 2 (the books). The game will follow Aidan and Zack–both as playable characters–as they solve some kind of mystery. It is so mysterious that not even we know what it is yet.

Cooper spent quite some time figuring out how to make the game fit any resolution you awesome furries might have on your monitors. It does work with 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 resolutions. (Look at us, going all technical, haha! I love it!)

In the meantime, I (Chris) spent time figuring out how to make Aidan look more “interactive”. Right now he has a nice kneeling sprite. That way, the player will know exactly what Aidan is looking at, apart from the dialogue line that pops up.

Moreover, we worked on letting the player switch the characters around whenever they want to, as it will be necessary for them to solve certain puzzles.

Every Developfur Diary will end with some statistics for you to enjoy. Not a lot to show right now, but things will grow in time. So here they are!

Statistics
Room Designs            2
Object Interaction        31
Puzzles                   1

Writing the Epilogue

Trap Me - Book - Gay Novel - LGBT - Furry - by Chris and Cooper Elkin - Elkin Books7Yes!

After 3 long months and 3 long drafts, we have reached The Epilogue! Woo!

The book is being prepared to be sent to our beta-readers. We have talked to many who wished to beta-read it (which implies editing, grammar correction, storyline check, overall positive and negative feedback). If any of you, with whom we have already talked, still want to do this — message us on Facebook, Twitter or Google+

Cooper is sketching the book cover as we speak and also preparing the illustrations that will come with both the physical and digital copy of the book.

We are also preparing to record the audiobook version but that might take quite a long time, so our main focus is getting the physical and digital version published first. 🙂 We’ll keep you posted, of course.

Once we get the document back from our betas, we’ll look over it one final time and then publish it!

Thank you all for your support! Keep in paw-touch!

Halfway there!

1cWhat? Already?!

Eeeyup! This Blog was also created to celebrate the fact that, well, we’ve written half the book. So you have even more reasons to be excited about it!

We’re currently at 25-30.000 words and we estimate that the final manuscript will be around 50-60.000 words. It’s not a HUGE book but, hay, it’s our first official one 😀

The main reason we started writing it was due to our fans insisting upon it. Out of all the fanfiction stories that we wrote (which we will not mention here… yet), our latest ones have increasingly gathered awesome fans who demanded more. So, here we are.

We’ll update you daily regarding our progress so stay close!
