Final Twitch Update

Hey all!

Just a final reminder that there’s going to be a Twitch stream on this weekend!

The day is Sunday 16 August, the time is 1pm AEST. The channel is my Twitch channel. The occasion is the release of The King’s City!

I’ll be streaming for about 30-45 minutes, talking about the book, doing a quick reading, and then answering some questions both pre-organised by a friend who I bribed to MC for me and taken from the audience!

You can either bring questions on the day or send them to me in advance at @whimsy_metaphor on Twitter, or in the comments here.

E-books are already available, if you want to grab your copy before the stream, you can do so at Smashwords.

Print books are still coming shortly — we had some Unexpected Setbacks getting the cover uploaded to specifications. I’m really hoping to be able to either put those links up before the stream or announce them on stream. Thanks everyone for being so patient with me — as for me, I’ll just be chalking this one up to experience and telling the story at dinner parties and around the campfire to scare other writers.

But seriously though, it’s entirely my fault and I do thank you all for being patient like this. As soon as I can give a concrete date for when those will be available, I’ll let you know — I just don’t have a date I can point to yet with 100% certainty.

But hopefully I will see you all at the stream (if you’re not asleep, I understand, time zones are weird), and I look forward to interacting with you all!

After the Stream

Just a quick update for everyone.

Thanks to anyone who checked in on the Twitch stream last week! We had fun, though we also had technical difficulties, so I wouldn’t blame anyone for leaving in frustration.

We’ve just about got those fixed, though, so don’t let that stop you from attending future streams!

Because there will be future streams. This week didn’t happen because two of our characters were out of town, but we’re going ahead next weekend, Sunday 7pm AEST same as usual (we’ll let you know if that changes). Join us for the actual story, now that all the worldbuilding is out of the way!

Watch for the hype on social media. We’re excited to get to the story, and we hope you’ll be excited to listen to it!

Announcement: Live Gaming

Hey, all! Quick update.

People who’ve been around for a while know that I occasionally plug Liberation Industries, a gaming podcast I have a semi-regular involvement in.

Well, tomorrow (Sunday) at 7pm AEST, courtesy of Cassk Designs (Twitter @casskdesigns for those interested), we’re doing an Actual Live Gameplay Stream on Twitch.

The system is Karma in the Dark, the game is cyberpunk shenanigans, the characters are getting wild and wacky already, if our group chat is any indication.

If you’re interested in getting in on this, the channel is the Whimsy and Metaphor Twitch Channel. The video may be available to watch after the fact, we’ll keep you updated on that.
