Wednesday Rants: October 2014

Greetings Fellow Readers! Welcome to another round of ranting. I have some very sad news to announce amongst the good so let's start there because it is important.

[Prototype Presentations Delayed]

In light of events that happened at New York Comic Con, I am shifting writing priorities right now and something has to give. What happened at the convention is that I have made exchanges of business cards and information from writing publishers. As a result, I need to focus on writing more than ever at this moment. So since 'Prototype Presentations' is a YouTube video and is not a publishing issue, I am putting it aside in order to focus on new writings, which I will explain in the next segment.

I am still going to continue playtesting 'Splatterbomb' at NYC-Playtest next month and I will try to get a table at the IGDA Game Demo Night in Hoboken when the next session happens, but right now, Youtube videos are going to have to wait. The other reason this is okay is that I already have a tabletop game currently under review with a publisher, so as much I want to keep pushing forward with my games, it is not something of high priority when I need to really step up and climb the ladder of success. I apologize to any of you who were expecting the next 'Prototype Presentation', but Youtube does not give me publishing cred.

[New York Comic Con]

My time at the convention has been very good. It was fun. I got to speak to writers, editors and artists in the comic book industry. I learned that there was a script writing contest and so I submitted to it. So, I have decided to re-strategize my script writing approach. I am going to refocus from writing a large series to write 1-shot issues to use as submissions to comic book companies. I intend to adapt some of my Kindle published stories into comic books. I may even do one for 'Arcana Magi'. In the end, I want to expand my writing range amongst the media and not limit myself to just novels, short stories, or tabletop games.

[Arcana Magi 5th Anniversary]

Well we are 2 weeks away from the 5th season of 'Arcana Magi' and here I am to present you the complete list of 'Arcana Magi' titles for 2014-2015 Season. NOTE that this is not in release order.

Arcana Magi 5th Anniversary Short Story
Arcana Magi Memorial
Arcana Magi Pure
Arcana Magi: Return (Short Story)
Arcana Magi Bolt (Short Story)
Arcana Magi Zero

All four universes will be represented this year. Now again, because of my shift to writing comic book scripts, I will be taking the first week of each month off. Meaning, the season will run very long. This will also help with the 'NEWS and NOTES' scheduling to prevent any work landing on the as the 'NEW and NOTES'. So be ready for a nice long 'Arcana Magi' Season.

[Special Project]

It is pacing along fine. The Special Project is going through another draft. Please keep remember to keep your eye on twitter for when the project is complete.

[Final Thought]

I believe that is everything on my mind and I just know I am gonna snap my finger while you are reading this wishing I had not forget it. So thank you all for listening to my rants. Again, I apologize for delaying 'Prototype Presentations', but I do have a new avenue for my writings and the sooner I get started, the better my chances of success.

So I'll see you all for the 5th Anniversary in two weeks.

Until Next Time...

See ya.
