Hi all,

I've been dead in the water for weeks with The Sea of Worms thanks to my office being turned upside down and having no computer (for over a month, actually). We've been trying to wrap up a house renovation project and the tile man was way behind schedule and decided to do the office last to boot. I finally got my office back today and when I get home tonight, I can finally start setting up the desk, computer, etc., so I can get back to work! Can't wait to dive back into this cool book of art, journal and exploration of the nature of magic, creature lore, fantastic vehicles and exotic locations set within the Cosmoverse!

Back in action. My computer is now set up and I will begin work anew on The Sea Of Worms next chance I can sit down in front of it!

Working on The Sea Of Worms. It is a combination journal-styled novella and setting source book with sections for several monsters, magic items, lore and more. As Cosmothea's on hold and there are no big Cosmoverse source books out on the market, The Sea Of Worms is the sort of book that fiction readers will enjoy, yet it has enough meat that it will hopefully inspire GMs for their roleplaying games.It will not include game stats, but there's plenty of very cool concepts to mine for homebrew campaigns (or for eventual use in someone's Cosmoverse campaign.)

I've been having a blast writing it -- there's a lot of mythology and rumors in it. The chronicler is Mojori, a major character in the Cosmoverse, despite his age (he's a 15 year old skree shaper apprentice). You'll find out why he's so important down the road. He does his best to chronicle his adventures with his ruthless master, an arrogant dueling champion who drags him along on all his adventures.

As I said, The Sea Of Worms is written in a journal-style format with sketches and paintings, sections on areas Mojori (or Mojo) finds interesting. I think you'll get a kick out of it. Just itching to finish it so I can get cracking on Echoes In The Storm and move more quickly on our rpg goodies!

Quick update:

Working hard on Sea of Worms. All of the interior art is done (unless I decide to add another image at some point). I recently finished final drafts on the last of the legends for the book. The monster lore is all done and I'm currently working on exotic locations for this fun journal-styled book! Have a great week, all!

Working on the final draft of Sea of Worms this weekend and looking forward to getting it to the editor before long! Yay!

The book has really blossomed and I'm looking forward to getting this one behind me and then I'll put all three of our books on Amazon. After that, I've got Echoes in the Storm, a board game and a pile of other cool, creative projects to jump on. Spread the word (and a review or even a sentence or two on social media--it's crucial to our ability to get out more goodies!) We're on the move, friends! Join our newsletter so you don't miss anything, and hey, why not join these forums and let's chat!

Still hard at work on the final draft. Can't wait to get Sea of Worms to the editor, make any necessary revisions and get these first 3 books on Amazon, hopefully in early 2nd Quarter!

Yes, it is. Once the editing phase is complete (with necessary fixes done), I'll have it proofread and then into the hands of our patient backers - our last reward, finally!

After that, I'm formatting and putting all 3 books on Amazon. I'm also hard at work on both a board game revamp set in Toonaria that I'm uber excited about, and a Toonaria source book.

It's great to see you around here, btw, Allen! I hope things are going well in your neck of the world. Take care, my friend!
