Unclean!

Guess who’s got the covid! Yeah, my number was up, apparently.Strange how you never hear anyone about how it turned the lower half of their face into Freddy Krueger. But hey, at least I still have my sense of taste.Anyway, it’s not all bad news. Unless you’re one of the coworkers that has to cover …

God Of T-Shirts

You spoke, and like the benevolent god I like to believe I am, I have listened.You wanted the URLs gone, I have risked RSI to make them disappear. All shirts are now available without a bakkerbaard.nl anywhere on them, except for the license plate shirts. That’s the logo. It comes with a URL. Deal with …

No Promo For You!

Learn something new every day. Turns out people don’t want a website on their clothes, no matter how subtle it is. Eh, to be honest, it wasn’t subtle.So, I keep hearing that people might be convinced to buy a shirt, but choose not to because I’ve slapped a URL on each and every one of them. …

It Might Get Loud

Nope, sorry. This has nothing to do with the music project I talked about in the previous post. Just forget about that. Pretend I never said anything. Don’t make me wave my Jedi-hand, goddammit. I will do it. You don’t wanna get Jedi-pimp slapped. I’m not that good yet and I might erase the names …

I Have A Plan!

You thought I was dead, didn’t you? No? Aw.I can’t wait to get famous enough for people to start thinking I’ve died. That’s how you know you’ve made it. Someone, somewhere, suddenly rubbing their chin and going, “Hey, didn’t he die at some point?”They’ll google me, click their way here, and BAM! Still alive, and …

Shoutouts!

The book’s been out for almost a month now and it did pretty well. Relatively speaking, anyway. I haven’t seen any numbers from official sales channels, and I don’t expect to see a number very much higher than zero in the near future, but personally I was pleasantly surprised. I expected to make, like, ten sympathy-sales, …

Hello World!

Well, ain’t that a bitch. You spend all your videogame time on writing a book, pump a bunch of money into all kinds of professional sounding stuff, get a good looking cover done, and then you try to get your stuff published.Now, I’m not so delusional that I’m walking up to an established publisher and …

Delays

Due to several reasons and a temper tantrum, the release of As Far As Souls Go needs to be pushed back. I’m giving it an extra week, so that would make it November 8th.Some of you might know me personally and raise a few eyebrows at that. I’m guessing two, but some people only have …

Proof One

For full effect, add an expletive of your choosing every fifth word. Unfortunately, I’m unable to do so at this moment, because I’m trying to save up on curses for the next time I stub my toe or step on a Lego. This is a bit of a good news, bad news situation. The good …

Most Useless Post

Good news! Work has started on the Dutch translation of As Far As Souls Go.The irony is that I’m doing it myself. Let me take you on a journey chronicling the events that led up to this point. As I’m sure I’ve made clear often enough now, I wrote the story in English because I …
