Tour de Lovecraft On Tour: Greetings from Reno, Nevada

Hello, everyone! It's been a bit too long since we've updated you all on the progress of Tour de Lovecraft, for which we apologize. Travel, day jobs, illness, and digging out from the consequences of that illness has made for somewhat of a disorganized late Winter.

This week both Ken and I have been at the trade show of the Game Manufacturers of America in Reno, NV. In addition to the day to day business that brought each of us here, we've been doing planning for Tour de Lovecraft. I'm also meeting with the representative from the printer we'll be using for the printing of the Tour de Lovecraft books to make sure we'll be on track for delivery by the date we're aiming for. 

We're at the stage in the project where most of the things being done don't have much visibility to anyone outside of Ken and I. I'm still sorting through artists to find the right ones for the interior and luggage tag art, and sourcing vendors for the totes bags (finding a quality one is proving a little more challenging than expected), sticker production, etc. Ken's been acquiring some new resources for the writing that lies ahead of him, including the Annotated Critical Edition of Fungi from Yuggoth, the Lovecraft-Clark Ashton Smith correspondence, and a collection of Steven J. Mariconda's essays on HPL, among other divers and curious volumes.

We're both heading home in the next few days, where we'll continuing moving forward in our particular lanes. With any luck, more visible signs of progress should be in evidence as we ease into Spring.

Thank you again for all your support!

      Gents, it was a pleasure to see you at GTS -- as always -- and I was remiss not to bring up there how excited I am to see the results of your labor in due time. Onward!
