Well Hell's Bells

I hadn't realized how long it had been since my last post until I noticed someone's posting on the message boards. Time moves quicker than we like sometimes me thinks. I'm only going to take a moment to give a quick update so folks can get a better idea of what is going on.

Things seem to moving at an almost feverish pitch here, I'm not sure why. We've finally gotten Upper Works into the channel. It shipped out last week and was announced as available starting this week. That's good news. Restocks and reorders came in for Star Siege. Mark has begun the full release run of Towers of Adventure and it will be out in early December. In the meantime we've finally wrapped up Crusader 13, it will ship out to subscribers on Thursday.

NOTE MANY OF YOU MADE SIX MONTH SUBSCRIPTIONS, THEY ARE RAPIDLY ENDING. SO BE ON THE WATCH OR GIVE US A CALL.

Arms and Armor was delayed as its waiting its turn to print. Should be late this week. I'm wrapping up text for Crusader 14 and Jim is laying out the prospects for the Crusader 15-17.

In exciting news Jim Ward has turned over the first 2 chapters for Of Gods & Monsters. So that book is in advance of schedule. I'll turn them over to Peter for art direction tomorrow.

Peter in the meantime is working on the cover for M&T, 3rd printing, which will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

I have been working on the CKG, amidst the hordes of technical problems we've had around here (thank you Jason for fixing this cluster #&#@).

On a more relaxed note, the wife and I have rearranged the living room so that we have our large pine desk facing the fire place. The cold has at last arrived here in Arkansas and I've been spending my evenings (once everyone goes to bed) sitting at the desk, writing and working by the light and warmth of a crackling fire. It really helps the writing mood.

Thanks for playing.
Steve
