Gamebook Friday: Forthcoming Appearances

I will be appearing on the Inside the Rookery livestream on Saturday, 28th January 2023, at 7:00pm GMT. I will be chatting with the Rooks about turning classic works of literature into gamebooks and RPGs, including The Box of Delights - The Roleplaying Game.

I will also be at the UK Games Expo again in the summer, and this year I will be assisting Darren Pearce with the 'Write Like a Pro' workshop. I'm also toying with the idea of getting a standee made for RONIN 47. So, somebody, anybody, please tell me not to!

In other news, I am selling some collectible gamebook items, and other things, on eBay at the moment. Check out the current crop of goodies here.

And finally, The Box of Delights RPG could do with some love. The Kickstarter has 16 days left to run and the project is currently 57 % funded. Please share it far and wide and consider pledging your support, if you haven't already done so. Thank you.

Gamebook Friday: ACE Gamebooks News

This week, Alknost Editions updated backers of their gamebook crowdfunder on the progress they have made with the eleven titles they hope to release this year. The good news for ACE Gamebooks fans is that the French editions of Beowulf Beastslayer and NEVERLAND - Here Be Monsters! are ready to go to layout, while The Wicked Wizard of Oz has already been sigend off. However, it now has a new title; rather than being called The Great and Terrible Oz, it will now be known as The Machination of Oz, or La Machination d'Oz.

There's also less than a month to go before the German edition of Dracula: Curse of the Vampire is published by Mantikore-Verlag.

The Box of Delights RPG is still funding on Kickstarter and needs your support! After one week it is halfway to its funding goal. Can we hit fully funded within the next week?

Watch the Kickstarter video below...

RONIN 47 Slipcases for sale

As anyone who backed the RONIN 47 Kickstarter to receive the slipcase edition of the book will already know, there were some problems when it came to producing the slipcase itself. It was supposed to be large enough to contain both a hardback and a paperback but the first one that was made only fit the hardback.

I am now selling off these very limited 'mistakes', which have the potential to become highly collectible. There is nothing wrong the books, it's just that the slipcases only fit the hardback. If you are interested in acquiring one of these slipcased hardbacks, check out my eBay page.

Gamebook Friday: A Belated Happy New Year!

Hello again and welcome to 2023!

My year has got off to a cracking start, as the crowdfunding campaign to publish the Spanish edition of Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland funded yesterday, raising almost 27,000 Euros! Congratulations to Ed Riker and Patricia H Albin of Celaeno Books for running an excellent campaign and to the rest of the team for all their hard work behind the scenes.

Today I also finished another gamebook-related project, although I'm not sure when it will see print, but it means that next week I'm free to crack on with the next gamebook-related project. I think 2023 is going to feature quite a few gamebook-related projects, one way or another.

Just to mix things up a bit, the Kickstarter for the next game from ACE Gamebooks Roleplay launches this time next week, on Friday 13th! To find out more, and sign up to be notified when it goes live, click this link.
