I Want a Pad and Pencil!

Last week I had occasion to go into my local Apple Store. I was there to take a class on shooting video using my iPhone, which was FASCINATING . . . but that’s not what I want to talk about today. While I was waiting for the class to start, and again after it ended, […]

Cyber Monday—Buy Stan!

So, last week was Thanksgiving. I had a terrific one, filled with great friends, delicious food, and a much needed step away from ALL work for the whole weekend, and I hope all of you had a good weekend, too (whether our U.S. Thanksgiving holiday is something you celebrate or not). The entire world, it […]

I’m okay with this. If a company wants to spend some of its time, energy, […]

Fittingly enough, the group is called ¡Viva Sergio! The group has been filled with lots of anecdotes of encounters with Sergio at conventions, signings, and random places around the […]

Yesterday I hinted . . . no, I downright TEASED you that I’ll have a brand new product available for sale at Gen Con this year. Well, the waiting is over. It’s time to officially announce that product. Well, okay, I already DID announce it on Facebook . . . and Twitter . . . […]

Teach Your Kids to Game Week

Given how often I’m over at the OneBookshelf sites, I don’t know how this slipped my attention previously, but it turns out that through Dec. 7th they are doing a promotion called Teach Your Kids To Game Week. The idea basically is . . . ummm . . . to teach your kids to game. […]
