Demon King & Hero Special: Q&A 2

TL: Eevee
Ed: Eevee


Doing another Q&A.
Ask me anything. Will answer everything.
Length of time I’m doing this for is until I have nothing left to write about.
My latent talent in even being able to make the reader my emergency filler.
Your comments are my feedstock!


Q: No one seems to care about the demon king’s age.
A: I tried caring about the reader responses, but no dice.

Q: The start was the hero and demon king’s sweet romance but they say it’s turning crap.
A: I have never written romance before. What’s dating, is it something to eat.

Q: What do I do if I want to see romance.
A: You must tell me to. On the rare occasions when I do make and advancements on the sweetness I read romantic novels or manga. Don’t mock shoujo for what it is. Bloody good. Discard the thought that girls mustn’t read shounen and boys musn’t read shoujo. (Note: shoujo manga tend to have a longer time between serials.)

Q: There are rumours that you’re taking drugs.
A: Other than the ones for treatment, I don’t even take vitamins. It’s a misunderstanding.

Q: There are some readers every now and then who call you a genius.
A: Pay me my due wages… no, not that, I think I am a bit of a genius. God talk. Lol.

Q: The gods are too weak. Why are gods being pushed around by humans.
A: Read some modern fantasy. Demon kings for a matter of course, even gods are diced. Bear in mind the fact that they can save the world equally means they can completely screw it over.

Q: Are you really going to go on a 2 year hiatus once you enter the army. There are holidays, so can’t you write then.
A: I’ve said this before, but I’m a reader first before a writer. When I’m on holiday, I must read. I can write once I’m done reading, but it seems like the holidays will be over before then.

Q: When are you writing Butler.
A: No clue. I’ve thought of inital plans beyond the prologue for the time being, when I first thought of it I did plan on completing it but nothing beyond that so it might be hard.

Q: Say you got a publishing offer. There are lots of people who want it to happen, why haven’t you done it.
A: As for Butler, I will not be publishing that ever. If I did, I’d probably have to start everything from scratch. No, before that, I will never have anything to do with hard copy publishers. Looking at authors’ blogs, depending on the sales, the publishers even axe the series with premature endings and I don’t want that. The internet, where I can control the length and content is awesome. Plus there is nothing that I’ve written so far that’s worth money. There are a few that I thought might be worth being paid to write but even the storyline’s incomplete for those. I’d planned for at least two years in planning but it’s stll not done. I think that might be a lifelong project.

Q: You say there’s nothing worth paying money to see but you have a few on Novelan(1).
A: I collect points there and read on Novelan. Press the buttons every now and then. The Novelan prices have gone up lately so it’s been hard reading them. I need to collect mana for 75 days. And it’s still only worth one day. Damn it.

Q: Do you care about the number of views or likes.
A: Rather that views or likes, I care more about comments. I want to have a hundred comments on mine too. Lol. Or not.

Q: There are no more questions.
A: Looks like it.


Note: The reason the author’s writing a side story is totally not because the author can’t deal with the hero. Really.

  1. What is Butler? Is it another story that the author is writing? Because if its as half as good as this one, I’d love to read it.
