I’m not dead…yet

Several people want to know why I haven’t updated the site.  Well, I’m not dead, at least not yet.  I took some much needed time off and actually took a holiday.

Publishing is supposed to slow down in the summer.  To some extent, that’s true.  But, there are several new LitRPG books that have come out over the past three weeks.

I’ll update in a few days.   Until then, keep gaming and keep reading.

Here’s the #LitRPG Chatter for July 2 – July 3, 2017

What is #LitRPG Chatter?  I follow blogs, message boards, podcasts, new authors, old authors, short story writers and whatnot mostly relevant to LitRPG.   I don’t always get it right, but I try.   It’s much more than a copy and paste, I actually spend time in trying to find the best of what people are talking about in this new(ish) genre.

#LitRPG Podcast #57 Talks with author Daniel Schinhofen

Ramon is back with another #LitRPG Podcast.  #57 talks with Daniel Schinhofen who wrote:

Last Horizon: Beta http://amzn.to/2rZCsgH
Last Horizon: Live http://amzn.to/2tSTLl1
Alpha World: Gamer for Life http://amzn.to/2rGlLYx
Forming the Company (Alpha World Book 2)
http://amzn.to/2sZf33A

I have to admit, I’m biased when it comes to Schinhofen.  I’ve read 3 of his 4 books and I would rate them a +5.  Forming the Company (Alpha World Book 2) is a great read.  And, it was great to get to hear him in an interview.  Ramon, who I’ve said is the hardest working guy in #LitRPG, did a great job.  Check it out when you have time.  (Notice how I subliminally threw in great.  You think it’s bad writing, but I call it marketing.  Now, you’ll think of Ramon Mejia and Daniel Schinhofen with the word great.)   🙂
