Inclusivity? You’re soaking in it…

                    My books are inclusive. I take some extra effort to make them so. Are they perfect? No. Are they going to hit you over the head with how inclusive they are? No. But they are. Take for example, the characters in the latest book “The Forever Diamonds,” which came out yesterday. Of the 15 characters, 7 are female, 7 male, 1 is non-gendered. 9 are People of Color, 5 are White, and 1 is a reptile (very pretty color reptile though). Two of the men are lovers. A woman has … Continue reading Inclusivity? You’re soaking in it…

Privilege is the Invisible Ink

It strikes me that privilege is an invisible thing to those who have it. I personally am not an expert in detecting it but I at least have a clue that it does exist and it does inform my thoughts and perceptions. And that I have to be careful lest it lead me astray. Having said that, I feel it is important to talk about my thoughts concerning certain recent changes on DriveThruRPG. Lately this website where I sell my books have come under criticism for their handling of some unacceptable material they were selling for a publisher. There are those … Continue reading Privilege is the Invisible Ink

A new day, a new year of life!

Today is the day I was born. Not a lot of people know this about me, but I was premature by several months. Had to stay in the hospital until September. I believe on some cellular level this taught me to really enjoy every moment of life as much as possible. I try to live in the moment, in the present, as much as possible. People ask me: don’t you feel old? 48 years is a long time, but I really prefer it to the alternative! I am very happy to receive the birthday wishes of folks on Facebook and beyond. … Continue reading A new day, a new year of life!

Metahumans Rising Kickstarter!

I am contributing to the stretch goals of a new game kickstarter! This is a “Bronze Age” super hero game called “Metahumans Rising.” Here’s the writeup for my stretch goal: $6,400: The Dread of Bayou Sauvage (Writer Sam Chupp) Your team has been called to New Orleans, where there have been recent strange, serial murders: victims found bled out, bizarre suicides, deaths by mauling, and a body literally crushed flat as if it had gone through a steel press with claws. The bar-room gossip, the word on the street, and the recent urban legends whisper of werewolves, ghosts, hellfire-wreathed revenants, swamp … Continue reading Metahumans Rising Kickstarter!

Update on New Project: Forever Diamonds

I am at 5K on Forever Diamonds, yay! Still have a fair piece to go – I think this one will be from 20K to 32K words.  Forever Diamonds is my campaign-length adventure sourcebook for Encryptopedia. So far I have covered bits about: The Heralds of the Queen, a faction that originated in the main Encryptopedia soucebook. The information presented in Forever Diamonds will be in addition to, not to replace, the information in Encryptopedia. So those of you who already own Encryptopedia will be safe. The Shadowhood, a new faction representing a new type of espionage organization called the … Continue reading Update on New Project: Forever Diamonds
