Moving from Gaming to Novels

The other day, my pal Sean Preston over at Reality Blurs asked me about how I moved from writing roleplaying games to writing novels. It’s not the most obvious career path in the world, although I’ve had lots of friends and mentors manage it, and it makes for a fine story. He asked if he could post my answer on his blog as a means of helping promote the release of Amortals, and I happily agreed.

That’s the kind of friends you want, folks. The ones that you not only enjoy hanging out with but who are also bold enough to suggest a way in which you can help each other out. (Speaking of which, if anyone else out there would like me to write a guest post for your blog or website or whatever — or would enjoy interviewing me for the same — I am open to entertaining all request/offers.) It also doesn’t hurt that I can unreservedly recommend Reality Blur’s RPG books as some of the best being produced today. Realms of Cthulhu, for instance, is fantastic pulpy horror wrapped around the excellent Savage Worlds rules.

So, if you’re curious about how I made the jump from writing games to writing full-on fiction, jump on over to Sean’s blog and get reading.
