I am filled with hope for the future and gratitude for the present. We have the ability to choose the way we experience our lives to a large extent, and that's the mood I'm picking. Part of choosing the experience of our lives is through the stories we take in. I'm a big fan of hopeful stories that work with, not against, what it means to be human.
Lots of indie creators share this conviction that stories should be fun, and should speak to a deeper part of the human psyche than whatever's trendy at the moment. Adventure and romance are timeless for good reason!
Just a few more days are left on the preorder Kickstarter for SoulBound 2: Escape, and we're so close to funding! I know times are uncertain and things may be tight right now, but it's only $3 for the PDF version and you might want some fresh reading material! I do not have a pandemic arc in this storyline so it still counts as escapism. ;)
Finishing funding means I just have to set up the printing - supporting American businesses and freelancers - and that will then free me up for another month or two to build... IndieGen.XYZ, the new virtual con for all kinds of independently produced entertainment!
The progress on the new online indie creator con:
Next up, I need to find out what sort of specs the virtual booths will have. I will be reaching out to potential vendors and I'll need to know what to tell them so they can go ahead and prepare a booth space on their end. I know they will need a nice square picture to represent their booth, but I don't yet know the pixel dimensions. I should probably also create an easy form to fill out so I can see all the relevant information at a glance... but I will need to know what the relevant information will be.
I'll try to report new developments every Friday, I think.
I want IndieGen.XYZ to represent:
I have other ideas as well but I have to find out what's possible and what should be an upgrade down the road.
Let me know what you want to see and do at an online con!
Artist, writer, creator of stuff. I just want to build worlds for you to escape to.
