Here is a short list of things that I want to do this year. It's short, because I'm only listing the things that you're interested in, too. 1) Release two new books. Schlock Mercenary: The Teraport Wars comes first, hopefully by April (but I'm behind schedule on that.) 2) Create some t-shirts for you. We'll probably start with a "Rule 37" shirt ("there is no overkill...") and we might even start with that this month. 3) Do something cool for my 40th birthday, which falls on the 29th of February this year. 4) Make strip originals available for purchase over "the internet." 5) Put other original art up for auction at least once per week. You're not buying it as fast as I'm accumulating it, and I think that's because I haven't been trying to sell it to you. 6) Create some other non-book, non-shirt, non-original-artwork piece of merchandise. Will it be a plushy, a bumper sticker, or a 28mm-scale Schlock miniature? I just don't know. But I've got all year for this stuff. First things first... I'm going back to sleep.
