Alright, Awaken Online: Apathy is completely done and we’ve begun the narration process.  We’re looking at a July 27, 2018 release date! Audio will probably trail by a week or two to give ACX time to process it.

The early access readers have all been ecstatic and I can’t wait to hear what you all think!   In the meantime, here’s the blurb:

Eliza’s parents are relentless – forcing her to constantly take prep courses to prepare for college and medical school. Sometimes, it feels like her entire life has already been planned out.

Which is why she leaps at the chance to escape into a new virtual reality game, Awaken Online. What she wasn’t expecting was to encounter a capricious god and his loyal “pet.” Or to be chosen as this god’s “avatar” within the game and forced to tackle a series of asinine quests. Yet, she just can’t shake the feeling that there is more to the irritating god than first meets the eye.

    I literally just finished Evolution a few minutes ago on Audible and I have to say that I am a thousand percent excited to hear more and Eliza is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters! I’m so glad that you became a writer and decided to tell the story!

    P.S. 4 year old Riley scene nearly killed me x.x

      Ahh, thanks. I’m pretty stoked about Eliza’s book too. It’s a little different than the others.

    Hey Travis! SOOO psyched to read we’re close to the next book. I just finished Evolution and i can’t wait. I’m an audible listener and if you ever interact with David Stifel please express my appreciation for his great narration. Favorite LitRPG series hands down. Are we going to see an Earth city converted and allied? Light/fire… Dark/water… this could get epic!!!! Can’t wait, thanks for your work. Make this an Anime!!!!!!!! 😀

    When are we going to get a Frank side-quest? I love what you did with Eliza’s method of using her magic (and the sheep lol!), but poor Frank takes all the knocks and gets no love!

    This is one of my favorite LitRPG series – Keep up the good work!

      I have a pretty cool idea for Frank. Just need to find the time to write it!

    By the Dark One himself, you work fast, Travis. Your books are easily my favourite series. I just finished listening to AO: Evolution on Audible, and was preparing to wait another year or more for another installment.

    I’ve never been so glad to be wrong!

      It might take me a bit after Apathy. I need to take the wife on a vacation (finally) and August is looking a little rough with the day job.

    Just read evolution and can’t wait to see what comes next. Looking forward to reading Eliza’s story but I’m also really interested to see who the fire avatar is and what they’re like. Really hope we see that side story soon! The hidden classes also drove me crazy with speculations! Now I’m wondering if each affinity has their own set of hidden classes and whether or not there will be different class archetypes instead of mage/summoner/tanky warrior/rogue. Thinking dex build melee fighters like dark souls or spellblades, something in that nature. Regardless, awesome job!

    Evolution was fantastic! Devoured all the books within two days. Cant wait to see more hidden classes from the other affinities as well as the side story you have planned for the fire avatar. I also wonder if there will be hybrid characters instead of straightlaced warriors/tanks/mages/summoners/rogues. Something like spellblades, paladins, or even dexterity based swordsmen ala dark souls. I assume players in AO would min max just as much as any other player would in an mmo. The dtory is fantastic regardless. Keep it coming, Travis!
