Yes I am! I figure goodreads can help me track and organize my reading. As a new author, it seemed like a good place to connect with the literary world, as well. My profile page is here! If any of you are on goodreads, give me a link to your profile and I’ll look you up!
Whoa! 2018 has come and gone! It left me sixty years old and tired to the bone. Still, I learned a lot this past year, especially dealing with my work. I can now publish on Kindle, and run a webcomic almost completely free. To note some further accomplishments, I completed The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual and got a handle on the ‘Game Master’s Guide’! As the old year spirited away and vanished however, the new year bested its accomplishments on the third day. My new grandson was born, and that’s a pretty hard event to outdo. Yeah, I thank The Good Lord for all my grandchildren and consider them each a Blessing that I don’t deserve.
Believe it or not, I have been working on page 35 of Glymyre Tales. The drawing of each panel has been completed, and tomorrow I plan to do the coloring, shading and special effects. Hopefully, I can get a schedule going and produce a lot more work. We’ll see.
As I wait for the proof of The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual, I’ve been working on “The GlymyreScape Game Master’s Guide”. Right now, I’m concentrating on the advanced metals and alloys of the game; the chapter of which seems to be growing and growing. The smithing of these ‘super alloys’ has been problematic, but (wouldn’t you know) the answer was to involve glymyring in the forging process. Sorry, but you’ll have to wait for the book to see how.
I’m constantly amazed at all the ideas The Good Lord is providing me with these projects. I give Him all The Glory.
Okay, I’ve sent the manuscript and cover to the publisher, and now I’m waiting for the proof copy of the book. I’ve already looked at the PDF proof, but a printed version is necessary to really know how it turns out. Once it arrives and I give it a good check, I’ll make “The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual” available for purchase. Years ago (when we were playing this game from scribbled notes in a binder), I never thought it would turn into a book as polished as this. Heh, the advice I got from a gaming (and comic book) shop, was to make it as detailed as possible. Well, at 290 pages, I’d say it was detailed well enough. Still, it’s only the basic guidelines for “GlymyreScape”, and there’s quite a bit more to put in my next volume, “The GlymyreScape Game Master’s Guide”. Here’s hoping it takes less time to write, but for now I’ll take a short break and maybe do a few pages of “Glymyre Tales”. I haven’t forgotten you, my readers. And thanks for visitin’. Hey, leave a comment or two. I like hearing from you.
The manuscript is done and exported as a PDF! All 290 pages of it! Now I have to dream up a really kicking cover. There are so many great fantasy posters out there, I just can’t seem to focus on a single theme. Could be I’m just tired from all the editing work. In any event, it won’t be long before I’m sending it to be published. I can hardly wait!
