I'm just not cut out for the whole blogging scene. Given how much time I spend posting on the WotC boards, it ought to be easy - and yet here I am, surprising everyone if I post more than once a month.

Part of the problem is that most of the things I'm working on, as interesting as they are, are either sealed away under NDA or so far off that there's not much to say. For example, I'm getting started on my fifth Eberron novel... but given that I'm still unable to so much as mention the name of the fourth novel (due out Q4 '08, if all goes according to plan), I can't let you in on all the big plans I have for #5. But for what it's worth, I'M excited about it.

I'm working on a few projects at the moment, and it may be that at this point it's safe to talk about some of them - I will check in with my mysterious overlords. I'd also like to talk about City of Stormreach, especially as I've finally had the opportunity to play Dungeons & Dragons Online - I'll post my comparison of the two visions of Stormreach in my next entry. However, for the moment, I mainly wanted to touch on travel. A few weeks back someone asked if I was going to Genghis Con - before that, Alanna wanted to know if I was going to be at the D&D Experience. I'm embarassed to have missed Genghis because it's a 30 minute drive away, but I've been doing some tinkering with one of my projects and when I get caught up in something, it's hard to let go.

As for D&D XP, at the moment I'm not going to be there. I wasn't invited as a guest, which doesn't surprise me - the big focus this year will be 4th Edition, and with 4E Eberron not coming out for at least a year, I really don't bring much to the table. I talked to the RPGA about showing up and running some games, but they aren't doing any DM's Mark slots this year, so if I showed up I'd have to run someone else's game - and as much as I admire the work of the Xen'drik Expeditions crew, if I'm going to make the trip, I'd want to run something of my own. Given that I do know people in the area, I've considered just showing up, running some pick-up games, and visiting people... but between last-minute airfares and having to figure out crash space, I'm leaning towards another weekend working at home. So at the moment, Penguicon is the next convention I'm sure to be attending.

Next up: Stormreach!

Are you doing GenCon this year?

I don't know if I'll be a guest at GC or not, but I plan on being there either way - It's GenCon, after all. Between Penguicon and GenCon, I'm also signed up for Miscon (http://www.miscon.org/).

I trust you'll be at GC?

That is, indeed, the plan. Haven't gotten plane tickets yet, so something could still come up, but as of right now, we'll be there.

A Keith, it sucks you couldn't attend the Con by you and wont be at D&DXP. I was gonna go to XP but I have a wedding to attend on the 29th.

I'm looking forward to reading your opinions on D&DO. I played it a bit, but eventually canceled.

Cue the flurry of questions as to whether or not Novel Number Five will star Daine, Lei, and Pierce. :)

I'm looking forward to it, anyway, and to Dragons and Stormreach which should be with me shortly.

I'm also looking forward to it btw.

NDAs--and realistic caution--do indeed get in the way of righteous gloating. :) Cool that you're psyched, though.

4E Eberron, eh? Email me.

Sweep over Photo Booth Rentals CA?
Residing in the Town has it's reward but comparable with all things, there certainly is obviously a draw back also! Residing in the central point of the action is of great consequence, whilst you have to be in the circle. My chief, Bernard, consistently talks about this. In truth, he spends the better part of the daytime to cogitate about things similar to the problem. Nevertheless, for my people Jack, Zelma as well as Lynn, our City is the individual place to be in this world. For me the urban life is nice! I never pop in the clubs. I quite favor a nice Shed Celebration and with the aid of [url=http://boomerevents.com/index.php]Photo Booth Rentals CA[/url] it certainly is every time a irreplaceable happening!
Life needs us all also all of us need at times certain important recreation, to have the ability to hold up in the midst of our day after day pressure!!
I'm Jan Robbins and I hope your next festivity will be a hit!

Play for a fool event planning software?
While on my previous tour headed for Barcelona I bumped into Joesph while on my route. This man told me, he was going to purchase an extra Software program inside this PC Stockroom close to this area. Ok, what a coincidence, I was just now about to take off to the same store, nevertheless intended for a diverse motive. We determined to go organized, so we both can provide information to one another.
Currently I hardly ever get Applications in the shop. I choose getting in our Web because nearly always there appears to be the advantage to look at a presentation or even sample it for a limited while otherwise through partial features. I can never perform that in the shop! My friend opposed this, telling me he has found out precisely what he desires. He experienced before now at his mothers robot and it is the paramount he has yet encountered up till now!
Well here in Spain in spite of this it is safe to pay money for [url=http://www.accuevent.com]event planning software[/url] in the Network. It arrives with the complete help one call for. Without doubt it is pleasant, when you offer individuals fun and this so greatly needed leisure, as you lead a business that is related to Weddings, Events and Celebration, nevertheless still this variety of producing riches still wishes to receive funds (smirk at this time). Therefore hold it in concert and be certain you hold a good quality software system to handle every one of your dealings and keeps you up to date!
For me, Maurice Patel the thing is the most critical chunk of equipment you can have!
Until the end of time be aware of, what appears to be best!!

Do Girls want a nice wedding ring...
A question for everybody. Guys, do you think you have to to go all out and spend a ton of money on an engagement ring to please your girl?

Girls, does the amount spent on the ring actually increase how much love you feel for your man?

I dont have a insane bank account but the ring I got for my love the other day she said was to small so that was disappointing and now I don't know what to do. So, what's your comments?
