You always know a writer when you see one – they’re the quiet ones, antisocial, sitting in a corner, watching . . .

I realized this morning that I haven’t posted much here since the Hydra Publications blog hop last month. Bad blogger – no cookie! But you know how it is with those writer types . . . when they’re quiet, you know they’re up to something. So I thought I’d share a little of what I’ve been working on for the past few weeks:

  • The first module in my series for Hydra Games is getting ready for its big play test debut on Saturday! Which reminds me, I still need to write up that NPC . . .
  • Outlining the next two modules in the series.
  • Preliminary outlining for a novel set in the Andronia world of Hydra Games.
  • Character sketches are finished for my modern fairy tale novel. You’ve already met two of them! I’m finishing up the magic system and starting on refining the plot next week. This thing is getting interesting – and a little dark.

Unfortunately, time is running short – as always! Stay tuned . . . I’m posting another short flash fiction installment tomorrow. A little fun to get the weekend started 🙂

Curious about role playing? Not sure what it’s about or how to get started? I’m working on a series of blog posts for the curious gamer in you. But I need your help – I can guess what a non-gamer might want to know, but I’ve been doing this for almost 20 years. It’s hard to remember what questions I had back then. Leave a question here, and I’ll do my best to answer it in an upcoming blog post.

First off, let me apologize if you’ve been waiting to find out what happens with Sporia, Renee, and her forbidden lover. I know, I promised the next installment this morning, but sometimes something so huge falls out of the sky that your regularly scheduled writing time gets overwhelmed.

I’ve just joined Hydra Publications‘ brand new Role Playing Game division under the leadership of one of my mentors and favorite authors, Raven Bower. Over the next several months, I’ll be joining a team of incredibly talented writers creating game modules, rule books, and novels based on the Pathfinder fantasy game system.

Does this mean I can write off GenCon passes as a business expense? 🙂
