No, like... a REAL book. Not a fan comic, but my own story that I plan to copyright and trademark and publish.

So yeah. I don't dare say anything about it here until I have said copyrights, but now I'm thinking of how to go about distributing it once I am ready.

I guess I should go about getting a domain name, but I don't know anything about website creation, and paying someone else to do that can cost thousands of dollars, which I obviously don't have, but maybe I could get a page through smackjeeves, like My Life With Fel and all these other webcomics?

Of course I want to be able to make money with this story, but I don't know how much people will be willing to pay for it. If I, say, release a few preview pages and hide the rest of the comic behind a paywall, well, maybe SOME people will be hooked enough by that first scene to pay $10 or however much I decide on to see the rest of it, but I have a feeling that most won't. I mean, I'm a pretty unknown guy. I'm not famous. People don't really have any past works to go by to trust that my future works will be worth anything. I'd just have to show them, I guess.

Maybe I could sell paperbacks, like the author of Mystery Babylon does, while still making the comic itself freely viewable. I don't know how much he makes with that business model, but I guess it's worth a try...? The old world brick and mortar way of doing things may've worked out if I did it ten years ago, but I'm not sure it would now. Maybe I could put it on some service people can use to read books on their kindles, or something like that?

Whether or not I should seek a publisher or self publish is another issue. Also how much I would need to pay beforehand just to have it printed on paper.

Point is, there's a lot I have to think about. Before I even think of revealing this to the world, though, I need to make my rights to it air tight. So yeah... it's gonna be a little while before you get to see anything of it.


I'm also accepting points donations at the moment, if anyone has a few to spare. Just felt like trying it out. nickinamerica.deviantart.com/?…

Just a panel from chapter 6 that I think stands fine as its own piece, giving a close look at the Toa Miro Leader's new look.

Bionicle- Nova Orbis- Return- Chapter 6 by NickinAmerica
Bionicle- Nova Orbis- Return- Chapter 6
>whew< This chapter was NUTS. Almost too much action to cram into a single chapter that isn't this year's finale. So much, I don't feel I was able to do the action justice. But, I was trying to keep the Toa Miro all shadowy and mysterious, since I'm not quite ready to reveal their new designs until the next chapter or so.

I hope the one shot you get to see of Piras is worth it, though. Dang, he looks NOTHING like he did at the start of the story.

But, it looks like this is it. After over a year and a half of waiting, all the terror, all the violence and destruction we've had to endure, the Toa Miro are back at last.

That's a good thing, right?

Also, Ultio shot the Toa Novus with a gun. All of them, like... not an energy blaster, an actual gun. Like, basically one of our guns.

Is that okay?

Eh...

That's it for today.

My hair is thinning. I've lost about a fourth of it in the last coupla' years.

You won't see it in my videos, because I keep the camera low enough to keep what is soon going to be an actual bald spot out of frame. My bangs look okay, but... the top of my head is thinning, and FAST. I can feel the skin more than I did just at the beginning of summer.

I've tried a few changes in my lifestyle to slow down the process... and at least for a little while, it seemed to be working a little bit, but it's falling out faster and faster now. And I HATE IT.

Yeah, yeah, I know, first world problems. It's just.... you look at so many guys, YOUNG guys who look handsome enough in the face, but then you see the top of their head and they become HIDEOUS. It's like they transform into some freak. You can't help having that underlying "yuck" feeling, like, "That guy doesn't look very healthy, now that I've seen his bald spot. He looks like he has some very, very wrong with him."

I swear, the moment my hair has thinned enough to leave a full blown bald spot, I'm shaving every hair off my head and going completely bald. I know this is something George Carlin hated to see guys do, but not everyone can make a balding scalp work like he did. Most of the time, it looks like shit. I just... can't see myself looking acceptably good that way.

I am going to miss my hair. For silly reasons, yeah, but... I love running my fingers through my bangs. I love feeling it tugged down by water, or blown around by a breeze. I like those feelings. But dangit, it's not worth... looking bad.

And don't anybody tell me that all I have to do is never, ever pleasure myself and the hair will stay in, like that's such a reasonable thing to ask a dude. Like, yeah, why don't you just tell somebody to never drink water again, just drink other fluids instead? It can be done, but... come on.

The way I see it... men are meant to be bald. If you're older than 30 and you still have a full head of hair, heck, if you're just old and you still have a full head of hair, you are the exception. You got lucky.

This is the new norm. It's strange NOT to be bald past 25. Ever since we've abandoned the hunter-gatherer lifestyle and survival has become easier for us, there's just less of a purpose for hair being there. It isn't as needed. Then again, I have plenty of hair all over the rest of my body, so... eh. I blame the baldness on my grandfather, on my mother's side. He went completely bald when he was, like, five years younger than me. My dad still has a good amount of his hair, so... yeah.

Anyway... I'm probably going to be appearing on camera in my videos, and in my photos here, a lot less in the future. I know I'm being silly, but... gosh darnit, I just don't want to be ugly, and going bald is one of the ugliest things on earth.

Hey Nick! Been a while. What's up?

I thought I'd share a couple of cool discoveries I've made as of recent times regarding Samus.
I know this clip is from Other M, but it is a very impressive feat of strength. I'd say it certainly puts her above other characters like Halo Spartans and other things of similar stature. youtu.be/Nsn5jiN9F-k?t=3m43s

And this feat is from a non-canon Manga, but it's still awesome nonetheless. www.metroid-database.com/manga…
