Gamebook Friday: International Gamebook Day 2023, ACE Gamebooks for £1, and the Moon Knight countdown has begun!

For the past three years, International Gamebook Day has been held on 27th August. However, this year, for various reasons, it is going to be held in October (date to be confirmed) in the lead up to Halloween. So, watch this space for more news.

You have one week left to download the PDF versions of my ACE Gamebooks from DriveThruRPG for the princely sum of £1 each (or 75p in the case of RONIN 47, while the Cosmic Horror sale is on).

There are just 11 days to go until the release of the paperback of Moon Knight: Age of Anubis in the US (5th September) and the global eBook. The paperback will hit the UK on 23rd November*. You can also pre-order the digital version on DriveThruRPG here.

* The day before my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. Do you think she'd like a signed copy as a present?

"I am giving this one two thumbs up!" ~ 5 stars

Gamebook Friday: The Darkness Over Arkham

The news is out there. I am writing a new gamebook for Aconyte Books, this time set within the world of Arkham Horror.

In The Darkness Over Arkham, your choices will decide the outcome of a murder mystery and a sinister plot threatening the town of Arkham, Massachusetts.

When a renowned professor is found dead, his body melted, it’s up to the Investigators of Arkham to discover what occult horrors were responsible. Pick your path and collect allies along the way to hunt down his killer before they strike again. However, Arkham is full of mysteries, with many wishing to keep the truth buried, and who are hungry to usher in a new era full of death and darkness to devour the world as you know it. Can you stop it before it is too late?

You will be able to find out next April*.

* If you are in the US, and June if you are in the UK.
