Chapter 7 is up! And along with it, the long-awaited character sheet for the giant of our merry band, Groth! And if you want to know more about the Goliath race I adopted for this sheet, check out the Elemental Evil Player's Companion at the official D&D site (http://media.wizards.com/2015/downloads/dnd/EE_PlayersCompanion.pdf). More to come!

Another week, another update! Chapter 6 is now up, as a mysterious new character enters our tale. And speaking of characters, here's a D&D 5th edition character sheet for the mighty Valora! Right-click and hit "Open Image in New Tab" to see a full-size version:

The character sheet is such a great idea! I love it! 

Hi everyone! I realize it's been a while since I last contacted you, but life has been a bit busy. For one, I'm planning a wedding! Also, I'm doing another NaNoWriMo book this year, so that's been taking up some time. But at long last, here's an update! Chapter 5 is now up for your perusal.

Also, I've got a special surprise: Stephen's character sheet, using the D&D 5th edition rules! I hope you enjoy!

Keep plugging away Sam! 

Hi everyone! This train is still chugging along. First, a huge thank you to all of you who have pre-ordered The Otherworld Club. I'm deeply grateful for the interest. I hope we can keep the momentum going! With that in mind, I've uploaded Chapter 2! You can read it here. I hope you enjoy it!

There's still a long way to go before September 30th, so keep spreading the word! And remember, Inkshares doesn't charge for pre-orders until the book is funded, so don't let that worry stop you.

As promised, here are a couple of other books up for funding that look pretty amazing:

Secret of the Family Tree: Digging up Old Roots. I read the first sample of this one, and was immediately hooked. Author Torry Rose paints a picture of a world that seems ordinary at first glance, but with a lot of hidden depths beneath. I'm very excited to see where this one goes.

It's All Fun and Games. Having spent years running around the woods pretending to be a rogue myself, it was gratifying to see a novel on Inkshares that delved into the world of live action role-playing (LARPing for short). Dave Barrett's book shares some elements with mine, but strikes a darker tone in the first two lines of the prologue. If you want to see what happens when a fantasy game turns deadly serious, this is a book for you.

Keep an eye on those, and don't forget to check out A God in the Shed and The Seventh Age: Dawn if you haven't already. More to come!

Hi folks! We're two days into this glorious scramble, and things are right on track so far. Thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered a copy already. It means a lot to me to get this story out there. Please keep spreading the word! If everyone interested in The Otherworld Club tells five people, and those people do the same, and so on, we'll have this thing funded in no time.

If you've already pre-ordered and have recommended the book to others, there are still ways you can help out! You might be sitting on some Inkshares credit and wondering what to do with it. There are a bunch of amazing books trying to be a part of the Nerdist Collection, and each week I thought I'd give you a glimpse at a few that I think are going to be awesome. This week there are two I'd like to share, both of which I've already pre-ordered myself:

A God in the Shed, by J. F. Dubeau: How do the residents of a small town survive when a horror from their own history comes back to haunt them? I'm pretty excited to find out.

The Seventh Age: Dawn, by Richard Heinz: The skin of the mundane world wears thin as humanity enters a new age. This book pretty much had me sold at the undead cab driver.

That's all for now, everybody! Stay tuned for more as this mad project continues. I've got the most talented person in the world working on cover art for The Otherworld Club (no pressure!), as well as more excerpts on the way. Keep reading, and thanks again!

There is a special bond for those who have bags full of dice in a crown royal bag. :)

Personally, I like that you keep humor and quips in your initial chapter. You start off with a compelling scene that brings you right into the scene wondering what's going on. 

And goblins. You always have to start killing goblins :). Everyone knows that's what comes first.
