Hi guys!

Hopefully, if you are here reading this, it means that you would like to support me and my team members in completing our current project - [Ancient Strengthening Technique (Portraits of Beauty)]

Time taken to translate a chapter consisting of about 3,500 characters to 4,000 characters takes us around 3 to 3.5 hours.

Quality translations are in fact, extremely time consuming. Not only must the translator convey the proper tones and meaning of the words across, research on references is also a must, so non-mandarin speaking readers would be able to gain a better idea of what the author is trying to portray.

There are currently six of us on the  team but please understand we all have full time jobs and are unable to commit as much time as we would like into translating... Some of us might only be able to commit one day per week, depending on real life situation, work schedules and family time commitment.

Hence, any pledge amount would serve as an additional form of motivation and deeply appreciated -->
Our current translation pace is at 7 regular chapters per week, and our objective for this year would be to up the number of regular chapters to either 12 or 14 per week.

NOTE: ***** Read this before pledging to us! (Charge Up Front) *****

Our current goals:
First Tier: $300 --> There would be 8 regular chapters per week and an extra 5 bonus chapters. (CLEARED 6/Jan/2017)
Second Tier: $550 --> There would be 10 regular chapters per week and an extra 6 bonus chapters. (CLEARED 8/Jan/2017)
Third Tier: $800 --> There would be 12 regular chapters per week and an extra 10 bonus chapters. (CLEARED 14/Jan/2017)
Fourth Tier: $1050 --> There would be 14 regular chapters per week and an extra 12 bonus chapters.(CLEARED 28/Feb/2017)
Fifth Tier: $1750 --> There would be 16 regular chapters per week and an extra 15 bonus chapters. (CLEARED 11/Mar/2017)
Sixth Tier: $2250 --> There would be 18 regular chapters per week and an extra 18 bonus chapters. (CLEARED 14/Mar/2017)
Seventh Tier: $4000 --> There would be 18 regular chapters per week and an extra 10 bonus chapters.
Eighth Tier: $5500 --> There would be 20 regular chapters per week and an extra 10 bonus chapters.
Ninth Tier: $7000 --> There would be 21 regular chapters per week and an extra 10 bonus chapters.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a site which lets users make a monthly subscription to a specific product. 

Do I need to pledge to continue reading [Ancient Strengthening Technique]?
No. It is completely optional, and only meant as a way to show your support to us and the story. The chapters of [Ancient Strengthening Technique] will always be free and open for all to read. The pledges are just a way to offer continued support if you are able to do so.

How does Patron charge me?
Patreon accepts two forms of payment: PayPal and credit card. You can add your paypal account to Patreon, or if you don’t have one, then simply add your credit card. Please make sure that your given payment account has the funds, not expired, etc, otherwise the pledge will be automatically declined by Patreon.

I made a pledge, but why hasn’t it charged my Paypal/Credit card yet?
All pledges on Patron are processed the start of every month, so regardless of when you pledged, you will be charged at the start of the next month. For example, you made a pledge in a middle of January, so you will not be charged until the 1st of February.

Everything you ever believed in; your pick-up skills, your beliefs, your confidence were obliterated. Picking yourself up from defeat, you rise like a phoenix from ashes, eventually becoming a full-fledged pornstar, saving up money and plotting your revenge.
