Journeys to Layout
You’ll all be happy to know the main Journeys to the West book is heading to layout, and Wolfgang says we should have a print copy in September! That will be a nice birthday present for me.
As we head toward our final destination, I want to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to all of you who supported the project; we could not have done this without your backing. Additionally, thanks to all those who contributed to the book. I’m happy to say we had several writers get their first freelancing credit on Journeys. I find that very awesome.
We’ll post more updates when they’re available. In the meantime, please join the Midgard Tales project via the Kobold store if you are interested in more travels with us.
