The folks at Star Pirates have been itching to get me to design ads for them for over a year now. Unfortunately for them Iâ€™ve been too busy to pay much attention to advertising â€” which is kind of strange, because youâ€™d expect a good mercenary like me to be taking to that particular revenue stream like a fish takes to water, but I digress â€” so they had to go stand in line for slots via Project Wonderful.

David Reddick, one of the hardest-working men in the comics business, asked me to do a guest comic for him over at The Legend of Bill. He provided a script (which I tweaked to my liking) and I provided the art. Iâ€™m happy with the way it turned out. Bill is fun to draw.
Hey, Writing Excuses fans! Ummmâ€¦ sorry! Weâ€™ll get Episode 3.6 posted real soon now.

Iâ€™m checking out the new website over at xtremedungeonmastery.com (your official source for all things XDM) and what do I see? A page spread, right there where anybody can read it without buying it.
It looked almost exactly like this.

The family went camping this weekend. I went driving up and down the canyon.

Well, no. There isnâ€™t. Garden Ninja Painting Studio lives in somebody elseâ€™s garden. But theyâ€™re good friends of mine, and good things are coming.

Yâ€™all went through our scratch-and-dent books pretty fast, folks. It almost makes me wish our volunteers had dropped a couple of cases of books down the stairs or something.

With Scrapyard out the door Sandra is in the throes of the post-shipping clean up. You should see the basement. It looked like a tornado hit it. Then it looked like FEMA hit it. Then it looked like nice, competent professionals came in and put everything back together.
Anyway, part of this clean-up process includes updating the store listings to reflect actual inventory.Â We found a few more mousepads, pins, and loose magnets lying around.
