No Blog Post – New Book

Reading Time: 1 minutes (ish)

As you may have noticed, for the first time in over a year – there is no blog this week. The reason is two fold.

1. I have been insanely busy!

2. My spare time has been spent finally finishing up my second – as yet untitled – book!

So, instead of a blog, here are some random bits of development stuff from the book :). It will be available soon on Amazon as an eBook and I am trying to make sure that it is available in print (through self publishing). More info soon 🙂

Bit of the Forward

I have always been a gamer. One of my earliest memories is of playing games on the Mac II that my dad had been lent from work, Star Trek I believe. Since then, games had always been a big part of my life. At university I discovered the joys of clan based gaming when I joined the Elites of Starship Troopers playing Starship Troopers: Battlespace on the AOL network 1. This led me to starting my own clan, Rages Renegades. I will speak more about this later, but those years were important to me in ways I could never have realized!

Spread the love!
