Yurihammer 40k + Marina Introduction

Hey guys, Syon again. Just wanted to pop in to give a quick update and do another character introduction.

If you follow our Twitter, then you know that we recently reached a 40k word count for Highway Blossoms. If this is your first time hearing that, then, uh, now you know! Anyway, within those forty-thousand words are about twenty scenes or so. Which basically means that we’re over halfway done with the initial writing phase. The VN is supposed to clock out a little under forty scenes, so we’re predicting the final word count will be in the area of 75k. Between Josh and I, we’re typically getting around 2-3 scenes done per week, so progress has been rather swift. Afterwards, we’ll be heading into the editing phase where we’ll be proofreading, tightening things up, tweaking stuff that didn’t work initially, and everything else that makes a writer’s life suffering. So just know that production has been smooth thus far and that, hopefully, we won’t keep you waiting too long.

Next up, is our second character introduction for our second heroine–Marina!


All her life, Marina has lived in a small town on the outskirts of Carlsbad, New Mexico with her gigantic family. In fact, she’d never even left the state until she was drawn by the allure of the treasure. Like the rest of the country, she was captivated by the story of the miner and set out to look for the gold on her own–until her car broke down in the middle of the desert several hours into her journey. Fortunately, she was able to wave down Amber, and that’s where our story begins. 

Marina has a very idealistic take on the world, her inexperience fueling her already childlike naivety. While this may cause its share of issues, her naturally upbeat and cheery personality bring out a much softer side of the slightly callous Amber, as the latter increasingly finds herself taken with Marina, despite the occasional confusion and annoyance brought on by her seemingly unlimited amount of enthusiasm.

That’s all for now. Again, thanks for stopping by to read. We’ll be up here again real soon. Our next character introduction will be a triple combo, as we’ll be introducing our three recurring (and my personal favorite) side characters, so please look forward to that.
