Update!

lfneJason L Blair28 September 2015

WOAH. Was my last update really on the 8th? That’s insane.

So, unfortunately, things at work/in life got insane but they’ve settled once again and I’m back at working on my stuff this week.

The wrinkle? The screen of my work computer/laptop broke. I’m going to order a replacement screen this week and hope to get it up and running by Friday. This doesn’t impair my ability to finish the text of Campfire Tales #8 but it is the machine I use to do layout and create the PDF.

I’ll update later this week with where things are at. Thanks for your patience!

Campfire Tales #8 Update

lfneJason L Blair08 September 2015

I’m not going to make tomorrow’s deadline, folks. I am very sorry for that. I’m not hitting my weekly estimate, and I’m not happy about that, but I’m going to focus on getting better and better, writing more and more until I’m back to where I need to be.

On the upside, I have enough written of every scene that I know exactly how this one is shaped and what each beat contains. Normally, I do that early on but I didn’t this time. And then, when I finally did, I made some serious changes because the scope of it was simply too big to fit inside the Campfire Tales format. What I did cut will make its home in another episode, so it’s not a total loss, and this episode will be far tighter than it was shaping up to be.

I’m currently at 4153 of the 6000 to 7000 words these usually contain. This total is is way under where I’d aimed to be but I’m getting there slowly but surely.

Here’s some photographic evidence.

After the writing is done, it’s a matter of copy editing and creating the Monsters and GMCs, and laying it all out. (Though, in fairness, I create the Monsters and GMCs directly in the layout.)

Campfire Tales #8 – New Release Date

lfneJason L Blair31 August 2015

Work on Campfire Tales #8 hasn’t gone nearly as swimmingly as hoped. A rush at the day job ate up my nights. I managed to push the count to 3425 (up from 2699) but that’s still only a little over halfway through. The madness at the day job has settled though and I’m going to keep plugging away at it.

I’m going to set a stake on September 9th as the new date though. I’ll follow up before then with an update.

Up Next: Campfire Tales #8

lfneJason L Blair17 August 2015

As I posted over at StreetsOfBedlam.com, I’m feet from the finish line on SoB Stories #2. It will hit DriveThruRPG this Wednesday. As promised, I’m then going to move to Campfire Tales #8: “The House that Wasn’t There”. I already did a fair bit of work on it. Google Drive tells me I’m about just under 2700 words (2699 to be exact). Campfire Tales run anywhere from 7-8k words when done. I need to read through what I’ve written to see what shape it’s in but a release date of Wednesday, September 2nd seems reasonable. I’ll follow up once I know more.

Little Fears Nightmare Edition Super Mega Sale Bundle

lfneJason L Blair05 January 2015

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!

lfneJason L Blair24 March 2014

Book 3!
I updated the PDF for Book 3 on Sunday. This includes putting in a missing power for the gifted and some general clean-up of the text. I plan to upload the file to the printer on Wednesday so if you find any problems, please let me know! A huge thanks to those of you who emailed me questions and issues over the past two weeks. I really appreciate it.

Goodie Bags #2!
Watch out for some new monsters this week as the next Goodie Bags hits DriveThruRPG. This one is about Baba Yaga’s Children, the grotesque creatures she makes (and abandons) throughout Closetland.

Another (Last, I Promise) Delay

lfneJason L Blair25 February 2014

I am so very sorry for this. I need to push the release date back another week, to next Wednesday, March 5th. I wish I didn’t but I can’t avoid it. Not without releasing an inferior product anyway. And as a small-press publisher with two lines, I pride myself on releasing the best product I can. I hope my track record speaks to that.

What needs done?
Revisions. I realized the character creation chapter was lacking in some key things and I need to punch it up. I also discovered I have a lot more to say about ghosts—which are important to this book—and want to expand that section. Lastly, the episode, “My Soul to Keep”, needs finetuning to tie up some weirdness, add action to some scenes, and strengthen the monster’s presence.

What’s the hold up? You already had an extension.
I did, and I was working on the book when a huge opportunity fell in my lap that could be something major for Little Fears. But it carried a tight deadline that required that I prioritize it. I wouldn’t push back work on Book 3 for something minor so please trust me when I say this is crazy exciting for me, for Little Fears, and hopefully for you.

What happens in a week? Another delay?
I hope not! While I get good work done during the week, it’s the weekends where I can really carve away some time. I’m going to keep working on Book 3 and aim to polish everything up on Saturday and Sunday.
