Hello readers. Some of you may have noticed that not only have I released this chapter extremely late, but also that it’s just ONE chapter. Yes, you did not see wrong, it’s one chapter being released at the end of a week.
So I have some announcements and explanations as to why. I’m going to reducing the number of chapters for TFH from 3 chapters a week to 1 or 2 chapters a week. It’ll fluctuate, and I apologize for that, but I’ll try to aim for 2 a week. There are a few reason for that:
1. I would like to focus more on The World After the Fall. This novel is more fun to read and therefore more fun to translate.
- I’ve begun to feel burnt out. I’m not a fast translator, and what the other translators complete in a few scant hours can take me near half a day. I’ve been putting out 6 chapters a week, 3 for TFH and 3 for TWAF respectively. My new schedule will be 3 TWAF and 1 or 2 TFH.
I am also going to be shutting down my Patreon account. I don’t want any of you to be supporting a month-to-month donation for less than the originally promised 3 chapters a week. Since I will be decreasing my output of TFH, I will instead reinstate sponsored chapters. I’ve thought through this for awhile, and I’ve decided to put sponsored chapters at $40, and I’m limiting them to only one chapter a week. I’m intentionally putting the sponsored chapter at a high amount and limiting the amount of sponsored chapters a week for 2 reasons.
1. I placed the threshold very high specifically for those of you who really want another chapter. I don’t expect the queue to fill up to $40. That queue is there specifically for those of you who really really really want another chapter. It’s more of a deterrent than anything.I know it’s very selfish for me to limit the chapter releases and then put up sponsored chapters, but please forgive me. Again, I don’t expect that queue to fill up, but it isn’t some ludicrous amount that is straight up impossible. I’m basically expecting the queue to fill up over the course of a year.
2. I don’t think I can handle more than 3 chapters maximum a week for TFH. if I put out 2 chapters during a week and the queue fills up, then that would be 3 a week, I would be hard pressed to fulfill them, but I’ll probably complete it.
