I had a gaming publisher send me a message today, inviting me to write stuff and submit it to them.

I am kind of not so good at wordsing right now.

Tabletop. They're AdventureAWeek, one of the 3rd-party publishers that uses Paizo's store. Not a big company, but certainly a start! I sent them a response email a few minutes ago, so I may not hear back until Monday (I don't know what time zone they're in), but here's hoping!

Thanks very much for participating in Raging Swan's Broken Freelancer open call. I'm delighted to tell you that I'd love to publish your encounter in Random Encounters: Wilderness which will release in February 2014. Congratulations!
The encounter I submitted was a revamp of the Lurkers In Light + Colour Out of Space battle that the Kingmaker guys tangled with in the Mazewood.

Oooooh, that one!

That was a neato-encounter. Oh man, you got in, man!

Will it be appearing in a published book at any point? My local group would happily buy it. (triply so if any revenue from it goes to your pocket)

Yup! Random Encounters: Wilderness is the name of the book, coming in February. I'll post a link when it's published.

I don't get revenue from the book, but I do get paid a (one-time) freelancer commission for an accepted submission. Plus it's a door-opener for potential future work.

Good news everyone!

Random Encounters: Wilderness will be coming out Feb 22. But following my contribution there, Raging Swan has asked me to participate in their next project - GM's Miscellany: Urban Dressing, writing the section on Ruined Buildings.

Project's due in early March and set for an April release, so I imagine my weekends will be occupied with working on that =) Wish me luck!

Urban Dressing should be out shortly, and I've been working on a third project - a section on mirrors, fireplaces, and locks for GM's Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing - for a couple weekends now, when I can find time around overtime, gaming, and getting sick. That's due in about ten days, so I'm in a bit of crunch time thanks to normal-work getting in the way, but I'm far enough along that I'm not too worried about time running out before I finish.
