This week has been crazy, y’all. We’re almost halfway to the funding goal for Birthright‘s Kickstarter, and it hasn’t even been a week. You folks amaze me. Really, you do. I’m humbled and awed you’d want to support a schmuck like me.
Thanks for that. From the bottom of my heart.
I’ve been a writing fiend for the last little while, finishing up the draft of Nimbus: A Steampunk Novel‘s second serialized part and churning out guest posts left and right. So far, these three are the ones that have been posted around the interweb, and there are many more to come as I work through my log of requests.
Anywho, onward and upward, as they say.
- Ferrel at Epic Slant (who is also coincidentally running his own Kickstarter at the moment) is hosting a guest post about the influence MMOs had on Birthright‘s party dynamics and character relationships. Can you write a novel based around the holy trinity? Guess you’ll find out!
- In a related post, Syp at Bio Break gave me the floor to discuss how I integrated MMO-style Instancing technology into Birthright‘s narrative. For a technology I hated when MMOs started using it, I sure did base a lot of my novel off of it.
- And last, but not least, our good friend Tesh asked me to talk a little about the worldbuilding and design that went into Birthright. So I shared with him my super-secret rules to writing the perfect novel. Or maybe I just rambled a while about magic, Luke Skywalker, and getting paid for making stuff up. One or the other.
With over 3 weeks to go and a half-dozen more–at least!–guest posts to write, I think we’re doing okay with Birthright. Again, thanks to you all. Keep spreading the word, and we’ll have a real shot at this. I couldn’t do it without you–nor would I want to.
(Speaking of, if you’d like a guest post by yours truly, would like to conduct an author interview, or something else entirely to help promote the awesomeness that is Birthright‘s Kickstarter, shoot me an email or give me a tweet so we can work something out.)
