There are several reasons for this, first and foremost among them being that I finally got a job again. I can't tell you all how much your patronage meant to me throughout those long months of unemployment - Your generosity helped us stretch our savings out for nearly a full year!
Alas, full-time employment means less time for writing. Fortunately, Chapter 34: "States of Mind" is nearly finished and should be published before the end of this year.
For Christmas, however, I've been working on something special and am very pleased to announce:
THE DEATHWORLDERS ROLE-PLAYING GAME
Now, this is still just the alpha version of the rules but it's undergone some private playtesting already. The time has come to open it up to you, the readers.
Access to the alpha playtest version will soon be sent out to every $10 pledge or higher.
Again, this is an alpha version and changes to the rules may ensue from your playtesting feedback. You're not only invited but actively encouraged to poke holes in the system.
For now, may I just wish you all a very merry holiday season and again thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support in getting through what was a very tough time in my life.
