Hello, I am SwanofWar, the author of Dragon Ball SW, my DBZ expanded universe. As a writer, I see the DBZ universe as a world of opportunity, not to recreate it in my own image or change some aspect of it, but to build upon the beautiful foundation Akira Toriyama set down and to create stories and character that make it feel like you're watching the actual show. As a professional, I take my work very seriously, striving through heavy research to make sure everything I write matches the canon as well as working my own creative muscle to keep my expanded universe fresh and exciting. I have a lot of love and respect for the DBZ characters, especially Vegeta, Goku, and Bulma.
If you are reading this and are among those who respect, love, and support what I do, my deepest gratitude goes to you. Hearing from all those who have read my work and felt it touch or excite them in some way is the inspiration that keeps me going. I will never be anything without my fans and owe so many hours of joy to you.
And if you are new to my writing, I welcome you. Come - be warriors, heroes, magicians, Saiyans. Come dream with me.
Hello beloved readers
I didn't want to leave you in the dark about what's being going on in Swan-land, so I thought I'd step out on a limb I normally don't take on fanfiction and post this announcement. For the past two weeks, I've experienced being sick in bed for 5 days straight, struggling to catch up on college work I missed because of the sickness, all while still working a job. Because of this, I have found myself severely behind in A Good Man. Normally, I'd be uploading the next chapter around now and I was tempted to do so. But to explain why I am not, I have to share with you a bit about my writing process.
I don't post chapters as soon as I finish them. Even after a chapter is complete, an entire week is dedicated to proof reading, editing, consulting with friends, and back source checking. At the same time I am doing this, I will also be starting work on the next chapter. The writing/refining process usually takes me about 2 weeks.
This may lead you to wonder then, how am I managing the early access on patreon? Some of you have expressed concerns about that, so I'll clarify. My posting on patreon in no way effects the regular official schedule. How what I'm doing on Patreon works is every time I complete a couple pages, I immediately post them on Patreon. These pages are the fresh of the press, unrevised and unedited pages. Those of you who have decided to participate with my on Patreon (for which I thank you ) are receiving the raw version of the story that I share with my friends before the official upload. So it's early access to the story, but not the obsessively combed over pages.
But, back to the matter of the current chapter. It is technically finished and it took all my will power not to post it today (believe me, I get as excited about the next update as you do!) But the fact is I haven't had the time to edited it yet, so it will be another week before the upload. I hope you can forgive me for the delay, but sometimes the forces of nature just turn against you I guess.
