Okay! It's Saturday! Update time! We made it!!! THANK YOU!
"Well Rick, now that you've won the contest... what are you going to do now?"
Going to Disney World! (Seriously, going for Halloween. A much needed vacation).
Many of you made this possible, and I have a lot of work to do in order to get you the best possible book. Thank you very much. I'm really excited for what comes next. Websites, faction stickers: Society of Deus, Unification, or Sons and Daughters? Banners to be made. Books to be finished. Tacos to be had.
So, it's not over by any measure for me. I still have to keep working on getting this book out there. Just not in the fashion of a rabid squirrel. Everyone should take a moment to log into their Inkshare account and poke around. You can update notifications in the upper right as well to toggle how frequently updates come along.
You can follow me on Twitter if you haven't @CrankyBolt. (Or here)
I'll keep my updates sparse to preserve the sanctity of your inbox, but I will let you know on events and happenings regarding the book.
But for now: I begin the editing!
We have hit 500 readers! (well, 510 because I only do updates on Saturday). So in celebration....
Welcome to Deadland. Zac. A MERE T-REX T-Shirt! HA! I scoff at this!!! I raise you an ARMY!!!!!!!
"A turkey, huh? OK, try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this "six foot turkey" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex - he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side....."
As you can tell... after 41 days I am growing more and more crazy.
So. I have two special shout outs: The first is to lucky number 500.

A special thanks to both of them for helping me out greatly. Showing me the ropes a little bit. And letting me loiter in their store asking anyone who walked in the door if they like to read. Support your friendly local gaming store people! Wherever you are!!
Well... we have 4-5 days left. The march continues. I think we are all pretty tired at this point. But, if you feel up to it: Make one last poke to your friends and readers. It's the last chance to get the book AND have it help for the contest.
Thank you so much everyone! I'm feeling pretty good about this!
