I’m finally able to announce some recent sales that I’m quite proud of:

“The Electric Spanking of the War Babies” written by me and Kyle S. Johnson (in a process we’ll describe as “fueled by Gummy Vodka”) will be a part of the glam (and now funkified) project, Glitter and Mayhem (Apex Books).  Check out this TOC:

There are a couple more sales and as soon as the contracts are signed, I’ll announce those, too.  This next thing isn’t a sale, but it’s something I’m geeked about.  The Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design is pleased to announce the 2013 Origins Awards Nominees.  A couple projects that I’m in received nominations:

– Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Basic Game – Margaret Weis Productions (Best Roleplaying Game)

– Eighth Day Genesis: A World Building Codex – Alliteration Ink (Best Game-Related Publication)

It’s been a pretty good year so far.
