Stuff I Did or am Doing
Stuff #1: I’m the guest/interviewee person on Kevin Sonney’s latest Productivity Alchemy Podcast. We chat about the struggle to stay productive, useful tools like Habitica, and … I’ll be honest, I don’t remember exactly what else we chatted about. I guess you’ll just have to click and find out!
Stuff #2: Klud the goblin will be sending out my next author newsletter soon, probably by the end of this week. In addition to giving away a free signed book to one subscriber, he might give folks a sneak peak at Terminal Uprising and/or spill the beans about Secret Project K. Or maybe he’ll just grumble about the lack of goblins in The Good Place. Here’s where to subscribe, if you’re interested.
Stuff #3: On Saturday, September 8 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time, I’ll be part of a Google hangout discussion about “Trashing The Rape Trope: Writing Violence Against Women in Fantasy.” I’ll be joining authors Martha Wells and Kate Elliott. We’ll also have a live Q&A portion. This is hosted by The Pixel Project as part of the Read for Pixels campaign to end violence against women.
Stuff #4: Only two months until Terminal Alliance comes out in paperwork, which should also bring down the price of the e-book. The publisher reworked the title font a bit for the cover, if you want to take a look.

I noticed an influx of new people to a guild in Habitica. One person said she came from your blog post, so I popped your name into my favorite search engine. I landed on your site and my breath stopped when I saw “Rape Resources” in the header. I just had to know, and so I clicked. To my TREMENDOUS relief, I saw what you had posted there. Thank you. Thank you, thank you. I am heartened to know that I’m not alone in being a man who believes in the rights of women and who is appalled by our rape culture. Thanks again. Now I’ll check out your books.

Thanks, Danny. And no, you’re definitely not alone 🙂
