Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – October and November 2021


Authorial Highlights

  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves aka Marl Ankh-3 is in the hands of Steve Jackson Games.
  • I wrote a novel (which is why I missed updating in November) for National Novel Writing Month. You can and should write at any time. But 30 days for 50,000 words? That’s a nice challenge. One I can say I completed with 3 minutes to go and November was hectic. I am almost done with it as it stands and I plan to shop it around or maybe self-publish it. It’s pretty good.
  • I currently have one outstanding contract: GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves.
  • I haven’t submitted the proposal for a GURPS book I want to write yet. Maybe after Thieves is turned in and my life is less crazy.

Blog Highlights

  • Blog entries have been around 0 per week. There is still too much going on. 🙁
  • Mumble mumble designer specs for headers mumble mumble. This is still being worked on behind the scenes, it’s just taking some time.
  • 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 both months. Still releasing them to schedule.
  • I gained two patrons in October and gained two more in November.
  • 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.
  • I’m starting to wonder if the “monthly goals and rewards” are worth having around. Seems like extra work for not much response.
  • No fiction was released during October or November either. The trend still did not end.

Miscellaneous Related News

  • My campaign “A Thousand Tiny Gods” continues. Almost 35 sessions between two teams. A-Team will probably start with the new year – or that’s my plan.
  • Not much else here. Too much crap keeps happening to me.
