So this was unexpected.
Late in December, Adam Gauntlett—one of the folks behind the tabletop section of wildly popular gaming/geek site The Escapist—contacted me to see if I was interested in doing an interview about Little Fears. Of course, I jumped on it. I’m very happy to say that the interview is now up and I don’t sound nearly as dumb as I usually do.
Check it out here!

Hello, folks, and Happy New Year!
Have you been holding off on picking up Little Fears Nightmare Edition? Have a friend who’s interested but hasn’t committed yet? Well, not to sound like a late night informercial, but now’s the perfect time.
DriveThruRPG has kicked off its New Year, New Game sale and LFNE is one of the amazing super-cheap bundles you can pick up.
For just $15, you get the LFNE corebook, Book 2: Among the Missing, and the first two Campfire Tales standalone episodes, less than half what they’d run you individually. While you’re there, be sure to check out the other bundles (batch one; batch two) they have up for sale.
I’d also really appreciate your help in spreading the word. There’s something really special I want to do with LFNE in the new year (aside from release The Wolf Pact novel, of course) but I won’t be able to do it without your help!

I’m winding down on sending the Kickstarter rewards out so I feel comfortable opening the print version of Book 3: Blessed are the Children for sale to the public. You can grab it here or over on the Products page. Any orders submitted should ship out early next week.
Title: Book 3: Blessed are the Children
Size: 6×9, 128pp
Stock Code: FSZ003
MSRP: $20 (US)
Back cover text:
Not every child is the same.
They are different than other kids.
Some would say strange.
Some might say cursed.
But they are called the blessed.
Some are born without souls.
Others, with more than one.
Some are secretly monsters.
Others are children of faith
given powers beyond belief.
And then there are those
who wander this world
long after death.
Praying to die
or to live again.
Every child is special.
Some more than others.
Book 3: Blessed are the Children focuses on the realm of spirits and ghosts within the world of Little Fears Nightmare Edition. From the kids whose souls are different than others to the monsters who pursue them, Blessed are the Children introduces six new character options including Gifted, Soulless, and Changeling, numerous creatures from Closetland, rules for possession, a new take on the Spirit Drain ability, a full standalone episode called “My Soul to Keep”, and more.

I really don’t want to spoil anything by saying how this wonderful 7-minute short film starring Alan Rickman relates to Little Fears so please just trust me when I say it does.

A couple days ago, I received notification that the books had shipped. I checked on the tracking number a minute ago–and they’re scheduled for delivery today! Awesome!
I’ll start putting together shipments this weekend for shipping starting next week. It’ll take multiple shipments to get everything out but, for those of you waiting on physical product, the wait is almost over!

The folks at besthorrornovels.com have put together a great list of horror books for kids including The Stone Child by Dan Poblocki and Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn. I highly recommend checking it out if you’re looking for Little Fears inspiration.

As a huge fan of the series, this is amazing news: Amazon CreateSpace is bringing back Are You Afraid of the Dark? on DVD!
The first two seasons are currently available—for the ridiculously low price of $11.99. If there is one series I recommend for fans of Little Fears, it’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? It’s amazing television that I cannot oversell.
I scoured the secondary market to collect the original DVD releases that have been out of print for about ten years and paid about $40 back for each season, on average (and I got some *good* deals). Seeing them back in print, at such a low price, makes my heart sing. Do yourself a favor and pick these up:

The print proof for Little Fears Nightmare Edition Book 3: Blessed are the Children is here! And it looks good!
I have approved the proof and set production into motion. I should have book on-hand very soon. Which means backer rewards should start going out inside a couple weeks. I’ll update everybody when the books arrive and envelopes start getting stuffed. Below are some (awesome camera-phone) pics of the proof. (Click on each image for a bigger picture.)
