Heroes of Legionwood Devblog # 5: Beta Testing/Release Dates

Greetings once again, adventurers. It’s been a pretty big week so far for Heroes of Legionwood. As of this Monday, Act 1 began pre-release beta testing and – save for some last minute bug fixes and additional polish – is basically done. I’ve also been overhauling the Dark Gaia Studios website to add Heroes of … Continue reading

Because it’s been so chaotic, here’s a rapid-fire list of updates to bring you up to speed: Book blogger and Parajunkee reviewer Lizzy Lessard was kind enough to post … Continue reading

New Year’s Resolutions for 2014

Well, here we are at the tail end of December. It’s the time of year famous for exactly two things around here: fireworks and New Year’s Resolutions — you know, all those things you say you’ll do next year but instead end up completely forgetting about. While that’s basically true for the resolutions I made … Continue reading

All Good Things Come to an End

Unfortunately, Dark Edifice magazine is no more. Some of you might have seen a Facebook status I posted earlier this week indicating that the ‘zine’s future hangs in the balance, and it is with great regret that I am now confirming that I am stepping down as managing editor and will no longer publish further … Continue reading

Plagiarism: the fake “One Night” series

The … Continue reading

The Life of a Writer

One of my writer friends sent me this meme on Twitter today: I don’t know about you, but for me it definitely sums things up nicely (except that I think “other writers” should know me better than to assume I’m actually working by now). With that said, back to procrastinating.

One thing I really hate…

Spending two weeks re-installing all of my software after a hard drive format. Seriously. Why did I have to do this, you ask? Well, it turns out my trusty antivirus software doesn’t actually do anything whenever I connect my computer to my university’s internet network (where their own security suite promptly turns it off). Usually, … Continue reading

4 Great Ways to Procrastinate

So, as you guys have no doubt noticed, there’s a dire error on the home page of this blog. It proclaims that my “blog schedule” is every fortnight, but in reality there really is no such thing. You see, like most writers, I’m sometimes afflicted with the horrible blankness of writer’s block, and in my … Continue reading

Dark Edifice #5 Released!

The mid year edition of Dark Edifice Magazine is rolling off the (virtual) presses from today. Interestingly, the release of this issue comes almost exactly a year from when I first launched Dark Edifice in 2012 — so that makes issue #5 a special anniversary edition. It’s funny to think that just 12 months ago, … Continue reading
