Perhaps you thought I forgot that this was supposed to be a page about my writing career? Well, I did, sort of.
The truth is somewhat closer to the fact I wanted to work on my writing rather than talk about it. I have been rather productive and am excited about the projects underway. Let's take a moment to visit what is coming up for the near future.
The book formerly referred to as "The Vampire Novel" has been finished and submitted to a publisher. It is in production currently and I will keep you abreast of key milestones in its progress as I am made aware of them. I am pushing for the title "Birth of the Rat."
The next novel I will release is nearing completion of its first full draft. It is a weird western fantasy and I am pretty happy with how it is turning out. I think it has a lot of heart and has a much more humorous approach than my previous releases.
Lastly, I continue to work on the "Untitled" tabletop game. From the ashes of Play Your Own Adventure I hope to build a tabletop skirmish game that is rewarding for solo players, competitive players, and cooperative players alike. I want it to be narrative by nature and offer persistent characters so you can play the story of your own design. Mostly, I want its rules to to provide easy fun (something so many systems forget to bake in when it comes to miniature centered games).
