I’m going to cheat a bit. As I said, both David Jon Fuller and Peter Dawes tagged me. You should check out their blogs. I’m linking some who have already post theirs because well I love their blogs. First, my girl Friday, Jessica Fortunato, author of The Sin Collector Series and Steam, which is released today. Next, Thomas Winship, author of the Vaempires series, who’s has an awesome dark creepy blog. Finally, Paul Anthony Short, author of Locked Within. I’ve been following his blog for some time and I ‘love it. And that’s it. Right you’re only getting three. What can I say? I abide by no rules!

  2. I totally understand about wanting to continue/grow a story from a roleplaying game. Some of the campaigns I was in or ran years ago stay with me, and I wonder whether I could turn any of them into a novel.

    1. You should probably take a look. One of my favorite things about roleplaying are the stories involved.

    2. Plus, it's a perfect example of how characters (ie. other players) can come up with stuff out of left field that you'd never think of :)

    3. Ah, so true. Happens all the time in the games I'm in.
