So, a couple nights ago, Shreyas and I are over at JACN’s house, and Joshua shot me a pointed look from across the room.
“Hey,” he says, “So this awesome thing happens to me, ever since I published Shock.”
“Oh?” I venture.
“Yeah. See, when you finish a game, and publish it, sometimes you go
to PayPal and there is money in there. Because people buy your
game. So I guess what I’m saying is, when you publish a game, you get money.”
In case I missed the aural italics, Shreyas decided to help. “So you’re basically saying Elizabeth needs to finish It’s Complicated.”
“Yes. Yes I am.”
It’s going pretty quickly, considering the fact I get access to my computer maybe once a week, tops. (Stupid lack of monitor.) I’m going to overhaul the art (awesome illustrations by the illustrious Shreyas Sampat will be forthcoming), and I need to get talking to the fine printers that JACN has put me in contact with. But someday soon and very soon, once I have a rough cost for my book worked out and a likely pagecount, I’ll be starting pre-orders.
I wasn’t entirely sure if I had the Thatchers to pull off pre-orders, but Sean is running a game of IC at Kubla Con, and in the event listing, he mentions that Complicated is going on pre-order “soon.”
Well, poops. It’s time to get to work.
