We are live…

…and sorely lacking in content. Nonetheless, I’m thrilled to have you here.

For a long time, I resisted setting up a proper website for two reasons: First, when the moment came, I wanted to launch right–that meant time spent researching service providers, getting technical issues ironed out, etc. With a lot of help, I think I’ve overcome those hurdles–this site is a strong foundation to build on in the months to come.

Second, I worried about keeping a site alive and updated; a dusty website is an ugly thing. I haven’t solved this problem so much as shrugged it aside–my update cadence will be irregular at best, but at the very least I’ll be announcing new projects as they come around. My goal is to start with a burst of content, then settle into a cadence of adding something new every few weeks.

What, aside from project announcements, will I be posting about? I’m not entirely sure yet, so if there’s something in particular you want to see then let me know on Twitter or through the Contact page. You may see the occasional mini-essay on the writing process or commentaries on the games industry… or maybe just link roundups if I don’t have anything else to say.

Most importantly, I want this website to be a place where people interested in my work can find items that are useful, intriguing, or entertaining. I won’t be writing much about my personal life or politics, and I’ll strive to be positive (so no negative reviews or brutal dissections of other people’s work).

In other words: You took the time to come here. Thank you. I’ll do my best to make it worthwhile.

For the moment, I’m keeping comments turned off. I love interacting with folks, but I don’t love managing spam. Keep the conversation going on Twitter, and I may experiment with allowing comments for specific posts.

Last, but certainly not least, everything good about this site design should be credited to the brilliant and talented artist and game designer Jeffrey Visgaitis. He took my vague suggestions and forged them into what you see now. I’ve worked with Jeff many times over the years, and doubtless will again. Thanks, Jeff!

(Oh, and if anyone ended up here without knowing who I am… check the About the Author and Bibliography pages! In particular, the Bibliography has more substance than you might think, including brief commentaries on a lot of my past work.)
