I don’t cross-post stuff like this very often, but if you’re into Paranormal Fiction and like Audiobooks, you can get 10 hours of my dulcet tones narrating the Vampire thriller, Ancient Blood: A Novel of the Hegemony. It’s on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Go forth and enjoy!
Avery Doyle loves vampires; he’s read every novel, seen all the movies, and researched the folklore. When his first one-night-stand, Caroline, turns out to be a true vampire on the run, he jumps at the chance to leave his ordinary life and join her as a “child of the night”. The honeymoon ends, however, when Caroline’s brutal Creator Sebastian enslaves them on his island estate and Avery must confront the dehumanizing reality behind his dreams. In order to survive, Caroline and Avery take their place as servants in Sebastian’s household during a gathering of the most powerful vampires on Earth, the Hegemony, and soon find themselves involved in the myriad intrigues and deceptions that form the night-to-night existence of The Order. A society of wealth, power, and inhuman decadence whose existence is protected by human complicity and disbelief, The Order is the immortal aristocracy hidden behind the giant corporations and political leaders of the world. Sebastian, however, has a plan that will change The Order forever and shatter human civilization. To avoid this terrible fate, Avery and Caroline will not only have to defy the most powerful creatures on Earth, but also confront the darkest aspects of themselves. For in the world of the Hegemony, even victory may cost them their souls… A fast-paced thriller that both re-imagines and pays tribute to the traditional vampire, Ancient Blood is a story of love, ambition, sacrifice, and betrayal that is frighteningly human.
The folks over at BannersOnTheCheap.com contacted me about using them for printing dungeon maps. Sounds like a pretty cool idea, especially if you need something big and sturdy to use in your game setting.
Check them out and tell them Dungeoneering sent you! If you do use them, send me a photo of the finished product and I’ll show it here.
Well, they say it’s the season of giving. Normally, this is time of year that Dungeoneering makes the most money from Amazon referrals. Thanks to the shortsightedness of the Colorado house and senate, that option is gone for me.
For the last year, Google Ads have been kicking butt and the site is now cash positive for the first time ever. 2010 has been a pretty good year for Dungeoneering.net.
Despite the fact that I got laid off in May, I haven’t been out of work a single day this year. In fact, I’m contracting and making way more than I did at my old job.
I’m feeling pretty good and I want to pass that generosity along. If you love Dungeoneering and would like to donate to the site…DON’T.
Seriously. This month, take whatever money you would donate here and give it to a needy charity. Put food into a hungry child’s mouth or clothe someone without the means to do it themselves. If you want to keep it in the “gaming family” check out the Child’s Play charity and donate there.
If you do donate, post a comment here and tell us where you donated (you can keep the amount to yourself).
Thanks gang. May you all have a Merry Christmas and a game-filled New Year.
I’ve added a new “Donate” page to Dungeoneering.
Seriously, if you’ve found value in the downloads here and use them for your game, a little monetary love coming my way would be some good karma.
If it’s outside your means, I fully understand (having recently been thrown down the “laid off” chute). There are still the ads to click on.
The guys over at Troll and Toad are the first to buy advertising space here on Dungeoneering. Besides being suave, well-endowed, and handsome men that any girl would be happy to bring home to mom and dad, they run a great site with some awesome deals. Be sure to head on over and check them out. Great stuff, including miniatures and figures of all shapes and sizes.
With Amazon referals having gone buh-bye, here at Dungeoneering, we’re open to most any RPG-related sponsorships. If you want your site advertised on Dungeoneering, let me know!
I’ll leave the ones up for now, but the long and the short of it is, thanks to the short-sightedness and greed of the State of Colorado, Amazon has closed all Associates accounts within Colorado.
Basically, the state wants a piece of the pie that they simply have no right to. Amazon has countered by closing those accounts, rather than deal with the extra burden and paperwork associated with collecting taxes on both the sale and the referral fee.
So in the end, the little guy (i.e. Me) get’s the screw, Amazon keeps more money, and the State of Colorado is back where it started from. Government stupidity at its finest.
If you’re a resident of the State of Colorado and would like to weigh in, drop your congressman a line as well as our lame-duck…I mean…retiring governor.
