The @SJGames T-Shirt Kickstarter.

Don’t worry, I vetted it; Steve Jackson Games is fulfilling the Kickstarter domestically. And vetting is just what we’re going to have to do, now. I was already uneasy about using products made by PRC convict/slave labor, and this rolling biosecurity disaster has only bolstered that.

But! They’re using a local Austin T-Shirt vendor, and hopefully this will fund well enough that they will offer and I can get an In Nomine shirt. If not, well, I like the Illuminati one, and that will probably fund.

The More Perilous Journeys Kickstarter is live.

More Perilous Journeys is for The Fantasy Trip, which is really taking off, huh? Anyway, I’m really happy to see SJG permit third-party print development on their stuff. Now we just need more print GURPS. And, dare I hope? More In Nomine.

New Gaming Ballistic/The Fantasy Trip Kickstarter tomorrow.

10 AM. Can’t link to it (it being More Perilous Journeys), but Douglas Cole is a good dude. I dunno how much I’m gonna back it, since I don’t know when the next time I’m going to play The Fantasy Trip under these circumstances, but I figure I can go in for something. Lord knows independent game companies need all the help they can get right now.

Backerkit surveys for FROZEN DREAMS are away! Also, the store is live!

If you’re a backer, you should have gotten your survey emailed to you. If you didn’t get it, let me know. Also: there’s a store!

Pre-Order Store

FINALLY.

It’s been two weeks, but Backerkit’s giving my setup a final once-over and Kickstarter is sending my money to the bank. Which means that I can… wait some more! Yay!

Well, it’s a different kind of waiting, at least. I chafed under the two week thing, but I understand why both KS and BK have that policy. It makes sense to give small problems like expired credit cards resolve themselves before they become big problems. Having me sit around twiddling my thumbs for a while seems like a small price to pay, although I also lucked out by giving myself an extra month for fulfillment.

No, really, it was luck.

05/13/2020 Book Report, FROZEN DREAMS Kickstarter.

Tomorrow is the time when Things Happen. It’ll be fourteen days since the FROZEN DREAMS Kickstarter ended, so the money should be released; and that means people get paid! Also, it means that I can start up Backerkit and get surveys going. Once the Backerkit is fully up, there’ll be a store for pre-orders and whatnot. I don’t expect very many pre-orders – but then, I didn’t expect very many backers, either, so what do I know?

05/05/2020 Book Report, FROZEN DREAMS Kickstarter.

Today in the ongoing Education of Moe Lane came the mentoring on the concept of slack time (my wife knows some of the management wyrding ways, you see). So, since I can’t do some of the things that I would like to do for a week or so more, she suggested that I do some of the things that were deemed lower-priority, but I could do now. My wife’s very smart that way.

So I fiddled with the short story sampler. Took one of the short stories, killed all the “thats” that I needed it to, and sent it off to a volunteer to let him pick at it some more. I do this a bunch more times, the sampler’s done and I just need to prep it for publication. And I advance a little on the checklist! Win-win.

04/29/2020 Book Report, FROZEN DREAMS Kickstarter.

I have very generous readers who I frankly do not particularly deserve. I do not know why it is difficult for me to accept that, but it is. Perhaps I am afraid that it will make me arrogant. I am prone to arrogance. This is a known thing.

But, again: I have very generous readers. Thank you all for sticking around, both here and on Patreon. And, obviously, on the Kickstarter, which – as you may have guessed – is doing quite spectacularly well.

PS: Posting’s going to be a little weird until Friday. Shocking, huh?

04/28/2020 Book Report, FROZEN DREAMS Kickstarter.

Bit of a busy day in real life (kid’s birthday), but it looks like we’re going to maybe really get that audiobook stretch goal. Tomorrow is the 48 hour mark, and there’s traditionally a boost then. How much of a boost? Danged if I know.

Also started talking to somebody about art for the RPG supplement. I haven’t locked that down yet, so I won’t say more. Let’s just say you probably won’t be surprised at who I’m trying to get for the RPG.

04/26/2020 Book Report, FROZEN DREAMS Kickstarter.

It was a pretty good day! The Kickstarter got a link from the AoSHQ weekend book thread, which resulted in some backers. Very helpful; much obliged. And the international tier got filled, which I wasn’t sure was going to actually fill. Four more days on the Kickstarter; I’m curious to see if anybody’s going to nibble on those character things. I might have to bite the bullet and link them to an actual physical book, which will raise the tier cost.
