The Paradox by merofi The Paradox by merofi
"'What was it like when you went through the portal, young lady? What did you see? What did you feel?'

Her eyes became distant as she remembered. 'It was cold, dark, and strange,' Tabby explained, 'like I just woke up from a nap, like time passed without me knowing.'"

"The Paradox," Chapter 22 of my illustrated online novel "Rema" is up at the blog: [link]

I've been posting this novel as a way to get myself to illustrate the whole thing -- all 45 chapters of it! After writing it for all of five years adding drawings was intimidating. However, I'm one chapter away from reaching the half-way point and couldn't be more excited. The second half of the book is my pride and joy. I can't wait!

I am so excited to read the second half! I followed the comic back in the day, and I really loved the world and the story. It will be really gratifying to finally learn how things work out. I think I remember you saying something about other books--are you planning on writing more about these characters?

Aw... I'm so glad! Thanks so much for sticking around over the years.

And yes, it's meant to be a trilogy. So while there will be lots of strings tied up at the end of Rema book 1, bigger mysteries will be revealed to explore. For example, book 2 will have a lot more of Paeter and we will finally see what life is like on Nonak.

I hope to write it all online, if I can keep it up!
