It’s a while since I last wrote one of these! I’ve either been too busy to do it, or absolutely nothing of interest has happened. It’s one of those.
Actually, it seems like for most of the last few months I’ve just been waiting for things to happen with the book - proofs, printing, shipping, unpacking, signing, etc. But as you probably know, I now have them and am finally, slowly, posting them out.
It’s an extremely manual and repetitive process, which is quite unlike my usual game dev work, which is actually just problem solving one thing to the next. As is writing. The good thing is that I can think about other stuff while doing it, and there’s some amusement to come from refining the process of preparing each book in turn. It’s basically an assembly line.
I also like that I get to actually handle each of the 1000 books in turn. I’d not get to do that if some publisher had just shipped them out to an Amazon warehouse.
For those of you awaiting your book - please be patient, but it’ll turn up sometime soon! And be sure to post a pic of it on twitter, or wherever. It’s really great to see them out in the wild.
Also, there are spare copies here -
But they won’t ship until after the Kickstarter copies, of course!
In a couple of weeks I’m off to REBOOT, in Dubrovnik. I’ll have to pay my way by doing proper things on stage and talking to people - alien concepts! I’ll report back on how I get on :)
