Week in Review (Late) 1/28/13

Man am I behind, I like to try and wrap things up but I was just not on my A-game this week.

The Awakened final edit for my short came over to me and I am hoping the rest of the authors see them soon as well.  I asked for an idea of when we should expect to see the book, when I know so shall you.

Working on an off shoot of the same series as we speak, just in starting process for me, I tend to think through my stuff like a movie so I am really just starting out introducing the main characters in my head. I can tease that a logo is almost done and a cover is being worked on.

Board game #2 is one step further, so we are slowly getting there.

I just checked on when TLG thinks Bluffside for C&C will be out, hope to find that out soon.

Hotel for GenCon reserved, now for plane tickets and getting passes (the easy stuff).

OK, carry on week, I have finished up my wrap up!

What a great 24 hours....(game/writing related)

Since Monday AM I have:

Had a great business meeting about the future of a boardgame with Jim Pinto, it is really turning into something fun and different.

Got a logo for a offshoot of The Awakened series that I am 99% sure I will approve, thanks Jhoneil!

Had a great talk with artist Tony Szczudlo (of Birthright fame) about doing some work with me, and it is moving forward.

There are days when everything seems to turn out positive, today is one of these days!

Weekend in Review 1/20/13

Not much happened this weekend but today/tonight I hope to have a quick phone meeting about a piece of art to assist in getting the other The Awakened project off the ground and a meeting tonight online about a second boardgame Samurai Sheepdog is working on.

Playtesters have Interludes: Brief Expeditions to Bluffside for C&C as we put some final tweaks on it and get it ready for March 2013 in pdf format.

We are looking into what trouble to get into next...ideas?
