This is week 1 of 4. You don't have to start at the very beginning of every book, but you might at least want to start at the beginning of the chapter with week 1 for the recap. PREVIOUSLY ON 99% GEEK AT 99GEEK.CA Rachel Lin Smith was just a shy teenage girl until she was turned into a vampire against her will by an evil serial killing monster. She managed to escape from his perverted clutches, and with the help of her geeky friends she has tried to re-acclimate herself to her old quiet suburban life. But it was no use. Try as she could to hide, it didn’t matter. Trouble had a way of finding her. So she chose to fight back. Chose to train her abilities and find a confidence in herself to stand up to the people that threaten not just herself, but also threaten the people around her, the whole city, and even the world. She has had to contend with gangs of feral child vampires, cults of magic worshipping terrorists, and even fought a giant robot. She was captured by the cult, separated from her friends and her enemies tried to turn her into a damsel in distress. They failed, and she destroyed their headquarters from within before reuniting with her friends. Her signature weapon is a sword, forged by a blacksmith practicing an ancient art. The sword has been imbued to draw power from love, something Rachel is in no short supply of, stuck in the middle of a romantic threesome between her best friend and the most popular girl in school. Meanwhile, on a world far far away, in another galaxy even, Frankie was just an orphan girl who never had a last name, recruited by a guild who preyed on people like her, vulnerable children with no one to look after them. She was trained by the Thieves Guild to be amazing at what she does, and forced to commit crimes in their name. Her loyalty didn’t prevent their betrayal, and she was given to the guards of her city to be locked away. She managed to escape, with a new friend she made in the dungeons, a man with amnesia who is kind and respectful, but strong. With his help, and that of a disgraced guard, she has been seeking to get revenge on the guild that betrayed her, going so far as to face off against the guild’s leader in single combat on the roof of a tower. She was defeated and left for dead, and still hadn’t yet shook off that defeat as she laid down upon her friend’s couch that night and closed her eyes to sleep. Perchance even to dream. Her signature weapon is her leather jacket, magically imbued to be able to produce infinite knives from her sleeves. They are from different worlds. One is a world not so different from our own. The other is a medieval fantasy world the likes of which we imagine in Dungeons and Dragons campaigns. Neither woman knows each other’s world exists. But they are about to. --------------------------------------------------------- My name is Andrew Geczy and my brand is 99% Geek found at 99geek.ca I'm a writer, writing monthly chapters of novels like episodes of TV shows, releasing them in 4 weekly segments (a teaser and three acts) on Sundays on my Patreon page. Every month it's a different book, over a range of genres, and they sometimes even crossover and connect. At the end of the month the finished chapter is added to the PDFs attached at the bottom of every post. Finally, the finished books are self-published on Amazon. There's a Dark Fantasy story about a post-apocalyptic world where powerful royals rule and enslave the remaining peoples struggling to survive on the last remaining land mass. There's also a sci-fi story about a people on a dying world who have built a ship to a new one, but their project is almost brought down by a terrorist organization within their own ranks. Finally there's a crossover story where characters from my other books are brought into the distant future where the princess of a far advanced civilization, one that lives in a solar system sized mega-structure around a Dyson Sphere, needs help defeating her twisted power-hungry brother. And all these stories will be outside the paywall for all to enjoy as new episodes release weekly, and the finished chapters will be attached to the bottom of every post on the site in convenient PDF format readable on computers, tablets, ebook readers, and phones at the end of the month. But that's not all my stories. There's also Urban Fantasy tales about a teenage girl turned into a vampire against her will, or a scorned lover investigating paranormal phenomena, or a journalist covering news and politics in the Middle East. And there's a fantasy story about a fallen angel trying to stop the end of the world. All these stories are published and available on Amazon, and are also safe and sound behind the paywall in PDF format attached to an archive at the top of my Patreon page. Only viewable by subscribers, my entire library of work, thousands of pages worth, is easily accessible to every subscriber at any level. There's even a "Geekly Weekly" blog which covers all the news you may have missed over the week, as well as ranks the week's worth of television, and makes predictions on what new pop culture things might be in the public consciousness for the next week. Finally I do Video Game streams both multiplayer matchmaking as well as single player campaign playthroughs. You can see me play games like Final Fantasy, Call of Duty, Hitman, and more. And you can see it all in one place. So stay tuned, and maybe subscribe. It's only a dollar and the support you show will go a very long way, I promise. There are also higher tiers. Give 5 dollars one month and you can name a character, or location, or suggest a thing you might want to see. Basically you get to give a noun, and then I promise to incorporate that noun into one of my stories somehow. Maybe not the same month you give the suggestion, but within three months guaranteed. No matter how crazy, you can't sabotage me. I promise. Think of it like a fun improv game. And you can keep giving nouns, for every month you pay at the 5 dollar tier. Or if you give 10 dollars, you don't get two nouns, but you can give a description to go with your noun. Describe the personality of your character, or the look of your location, or the importance of your item. For 10 dollars you get a noun and a description. You can also give a dollar towards supporting my efforts at Video Game streaming, or my weekly blog if that's more where your interests lie. I'm as poor as it gets, living pay check to pay check (and sometimes starving). So I understand if you are too. I don't wanna take food out of your mouths. Your attention is enough.
