I’ll be hanging out with the folks of Creation Station at Orycon, the SF convention in Portland, which is being held on Thanksgiving weekend this year.
I’m hosting two workshops:
Minimalism in RPGs (1 PM – 2 PM Friday), where I diss rules system for role-playing games in general. I explain why they mostly get in the way, and what you can do about it.
Self-Publish Your Book RIGHT NOW (6 PM – 7:30 PM Friday), where I talk about how to turn your unpublished work into an actual paperback book with a full-color cover for under $20. Most self-publishing workshops waste a lot of time angsting over the various kind of publishing options. Not me! I dive straight into the nuts and bolts of turning your unpublishable manuscript into an unsaleable paperback. While it’s unlikely to make you rich, it will probably make you happy — and impress your friends. I’ll have lost of sample books.
Hope to see you there!
