As the swag for the 2015 Insane Charity Bike ride was ridiculously slow in getting to people (completely my fault, for reasons I’ve touched on here before), I wanted to double-down, and make sure the swag for the 2016 event got out faster than ever before.
And it looks like it’s on track to do just that!
The Army of Dorkness buttons and the Cloisonné pins are done, and with Fulfillment Gurus David now. The Munchkin Charity postcards are done, printed, and just waiting to be signed…and then I send those off to David, as well:
The last bit-o-swag is the Pat Rothfuss limerick mini-print, and that should go to press this week:
(Pat’s limerick will go on the obvious black space. Want to know what it is? Well, you shoulda backed the bike ride! KIDDING! There’ll still be a chance for you to see it – the uncolored version of the mini-print will go in the brand-new charity coloring book, which you can get by backing next year’s ride!)
Anyway, once the mini-prints come back from the printer, they go on to Pat to be signed, then I sign them, and then the 2016 swag is DONE!
Thank you all again for making the 2016 Insane Charity Bike Ride the most successful yet! And if production stays on target, it’ll be the quickest we’ve ever gotten swag pout to backers!
Gen Con: the best four days of not seeing even an eighth of the friends you’d love to have seen… Yup, Gen Con 2016 is in the books, and it was a wild, crazy, insane time, with huge crowds, giant lines, and a total lack of sleep. And that’s just fighting for a Delta flight home! Ba-dum-kshhhh! […]
I’m packing for Gen Con, and guess what’s going with me? ALL THE 2015 BIKE THE BARNS SWAG, to be handed off to David Michael, Fulfillment Guru of the Gods (and of me). It took a lot longer getting the swag out for last year’s ride than I’d hoped. Also, it’s pushed back fundraising for […]
This popped up on my Twitter radar, today: To which Andrew Hackard, my great friend and Munchkin Tzar, responded: It all came to my attention when the challenge was accepted: OK, then. Here we go: I’ve drawn over 5,000 Munchkin cards at this point. Hope-and-Crosby-like, I’m healthily on the road to Card #6,000. I’ve scribbled monsters and mayhem and […]
Hi there! It’s been, what (Takes out pocket watch. Glances at it.) four months since I’ve posted any updates here? OOPS! Oh, ha. What an absent-minded silly I can be. (Puts watch away. Gets ready to bolt.) Eeeek. Um, errrr…what can I say? It’s been a busy time, and I’m sorry things have slipped a bit, on […]
Gen Con – the Best Four Days of Not Even Coming Close to Seeing All the Friends You’d Have Liked to Have Seen – is over. At least for 2015. For me, it was whirlwind of meetings and signings and demos, with only one game actually played: Will Hindmarch’s wonderful “Who The #@%! Is My D&D Character?!“ […]
I’ll be at Gen Con Thursday, Friday and Saturday, next week. To the best of my knowledge, here’s my schedule, and some of the new releases I’ve worked on that you’ll find there: WEDNESDAY: I arrive late, but I’ll try and make it t the Diana Jones Award party. THURSDAY 1 – 2 pm Signing, ASMODEE (Booth #1627) […]
HERE WE GO AGAIN! It’s the 9th Annual Bike the Barns ride! Bike the Barn supports FairShare’s Partner Shares program, bringing fresh, organic food from local farms to low-income families in our community. But look – here’s the think: I’m REALLY scared about raising $10,000 for this, this year. This is a huge sum – the […]
Comics are up again. Once more, for emphasis: COMICS ARE UP, AGAIN! There’s a longer post, somewhere, going into the explanation behind the half-year Dork Tower semi-hiatus. Long story short: Life Happened. So a series about Gilly’s Wedding that was supposed to take four to six weeks ended up spread over six months. I’m gonna ramble a bit here. OK. […]
