Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – January 2022


Authorial Highlights

  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves aka Marl Ankh-3 is in the hands of Steve Jackson Games.
  • Never did get to finish up my novel – but that’s on the list to do this month. Still really like what I wrote there.
  • I currently have one outstanding contract: GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves.
  • I have submitted the proposal for a GURPS book I want to write.

Blog Highlights

  • Blog entries have been around 2-3 per week – mostly session reports. :-/
  • Working on doing a facelift for the blog. Gonna roll that out as soon as I’m satisfied.

Patreon Highlights

  • Patreon remained on track for the month. Still releasing them to schedule.
  • I gained five patrons in January.
  • Still using a voting mechanic for Patreon Specials – still not getting more than 30% to 45% of patrons to vote. Still no idea how to increase that. There must be a way to entice people to spend 2 minutes voting that I’m just not seeing./
  • No fiction was released during January, though I’m considering releasing the novel I wrote a chapter a month or so to see what others think. It’s not super edited and still fluid, but other eyes might be helpful.

Miscellaneous Related News

  • My campaign “A Thousand Tiny Gods” was put on hold for January as well because one of the player’s schedules temporary changed.
  • The horror shorts have turned into effectively a campaign. People seem to be enjoying them though so there is that.
  • My uncle died. It was fast and at the beginning of the month. Then Warren “Mook” died as well and I was just a mess. Gonna miss Uncle Bob a lot and Mook too. Both amazing people.
  • Speaking of Mook, I have taken over ownership of the GURPS Discord. Come join us there.
