Touching Base

To all my American readers, (belated) Happy July Fourth.

I’ve recently fallen for the siren’s song of free-to-play games. With my new nifty iPad replacing my beloved (and gone) laptop, I thought I’d see what there was to do.

It’s interesting to play these games, because – having studied game theory and talked with some of the leading minds on the academic study of game theory – it’s blatantly obvious how they manipulate you. You see the game and how it’s rigged and yet, it’s still so bloody fun, you can’t stop playing. Mi am grateful that my willpower has held out to not spend money, but I know it’s only a matter of time before I succumb and hand over real-world money for digital-world advancement.

The print editions of Rhest for the Wicked should be hitting Amazon and other digital retailers in the next week or two, with in-store appearances soon to follow. My next novel through Haven Publishing creeps slowly towards it’s (tentative) September release. And with the final episode of New Phase gone live, I am preparing for the August launch of the next serial.

Stay tuned! 🙂
