Okay, at the time of writing this 2021 is technically still hours away, but I can’t wait for 2020 to be over so I’m gonna pretend I’m already there. Perks of being a writer.
So, during the last year we’ve had a lot of updates. We’ve revamped the entire design of my creations, websites, logos, graphics, covers, pretty much everything. You find the little asterism of sites and social media accounts here https://mythographystudios.com/check-out-the-new-look-and-the-mythography-pages/
As for gifts, you can download our 2021 Mythography Calendar for free. And you can grab a print version for your wall, Zazzle allows you to customise the calendar dynamically with your local holidays and such. https://mythographystudios.com/download-your-mythography-2021-calendar/
What we have done is we’ve expanded into a lot of translations. They’re not even all listed there, you can find them on Amazon mostly. Expect a steady flow of translations in Spanish and German since those seem to get a bit of traction. https://mythographystudios.com/translations/
For audiobooks, it has been a wonky year. We’re ditching Audible exclusivity for any and all newer titles, so they’re not confined there. This doesn’t change anything for Audible listeners, it just becomes more accessible to people listening from other sources. We’ve added Bandcamp, which we love, and Bookfunnel delivery for our store sales. You can find all the audiobooks on this constantly-updated page https://mythographystudios.com/audiobooks/
Since we mentioned the Mythography Shop, there’s been more content in there than ever. You can shop directly from us and we’ll give you tribute points you can exchange for a discount at your next order, just because you’re awesome. https://mythographystudios.com/introducing-tribute-points/
The Mythographers have grown to… *checks notes* 71 thousand! Holy Zeus’ balls. That’s a lot. We always love to chat with you, but since that’s not always possible, you can chat amongst yourselves. You can hang out with the Certified Mythographers on our Facebook group and/or Discord https://mythographystudios.com/hang-out-with-the-mythographers/
As for the future? You can expect more stories, especially in our more popular series, Cyberpink, Mean Gods, Futagen, Antigravel. More audiobooks, more translations for all you Mythographers out there, and pretty much more of what we’re already doing. We have streamlined the process quite a bit so everything is running smoothly.

We’re continuing on with our gamble of bringing you Greek mythology and speculative fiction together in various stories and various genres. The overwhelming response shows us that we were right, and we’re finding new ways to tell a story that you’d enjoy. There will be a few visual novels in the future, maybe? We’re not sure yet, but it’s on the table.
During the past year we’ve become possibly the most technologically advanced entertainment studio in Greece. Instead of fearing new technology, we’ve embraced it whenever and wherever it was possible. We’re utilising AI and machine learning tools inside all steps of the creation process to bring you stories at a rate never seen before. With OpenAI’s GPT-2 and now GPT-3, with visual enhancements for graphics, with audio voice synthesis, a virtual Medusa mascot (Say hi to Gorgocutie! https://gorgocutie.com/) and so much more under the hood.
What this means for you is that you’re getting more entertainment at a faster pace and at a cheaper rate. So, it’s a win for everyone. It’s also quite interesting to see where it all leads.
Have a happy and healthy new year!
