Subscriber bonus mailing went in the post yesterday to everyone except international recipients (’cause my stamps don’t work internationally) and people who hadn’t given me their mailing addresses yet. I believe that it was roughly six weeks behind schedule. As someone who’s obsessively punctual, this has been keeping me awake at nights.
I’ve really got to start balancing the responsibilities I take on before my brain explodes.
Anyway, so what was in this particular care package, you might wonder? Nothing terribly exciting:
- A “NEW GAMES JOURNALIST” button (all the pretentious indie kids will be wearing one!);
- A couple of sprite magnets that need to be trimmed around the edges;
- and a mini-booklet featuring The Young Person’s Guide To Mario A-L and a short story.
Be warned; it’s been a long time since I’ve tried writing fiction, and despite constant revisions this effort is pretty lousy. I’ll do better next time. Honest! It’s gonna be great. Or great-ish, anyway.
