Happy 2020!

First - Happy New Year!! 

TL;DR: Final edits are done. I'm re-doing the layout next week. Final PDFs out early in February and off to printers. Shipping prints late in Feb early March.

I lost two folks on this project along the way. I wish I could say more..but I don't know what happened. I hope they are well. My biggest, baddest, meanest hurdle was editing. My best drafts come out stanky and I should not edit my own stuff, I know this. Finding a replacement editor kinda short notice feels like an Ob 6 test... and my circles is a 2, with no life-paths near Editing. I think I got lucky at the end.

I'm a bit sad I missed Kickstarter's 2nd ZineQuest. I'd have certainly done another if By Aecer's Light was finished. Hopefully, they'll run a third!

Happy New Year folks, I cannot say thank you enough for your support and patience ❤️ ( I've seen the comments in some other late projects!)

I'll be at GameIcon next month, I'm running Burning Wheel in my new Mad Lands West Marches setting. If you're there - let's play something! I'm also at OrcCon in L.A. but I have NO idea what I'm running! Paul Beakley of Indie Game Reading Club will be there also, we're doing a panel together! 🤘🏿

Hey folks,

I went through the last pass of the InDesign doc with Nathan this weekend. I'm making the last small changes today and sending off to SmartPress by Thurs.  They have a 4-7 day turn around, obligatory photos of the box of zines and then shipping! Thanks for being tolerant of my lateness. That was all my learning curve with InDesign and big kudos to Nathan D. Paoletta for being my saintly mentor through the process (Imp of the Perverse is in the Wild!!) PDFs will go out through Backerkit early next week.
