Holiday Cheer 2010

PORT OF CALL: Tim Slover’s ‘Comin’ Out fer Christmas’

My good friend and playwright Tim Slover wrote this wonderful piece for his Christmas Party this year — and I just had to share it with you. Yee-ha!

The place of board games in our families traditional holiday celebrations is remembered and Tracy and Laura’s ‘Santa’s Sleigh Ride’ board game is offered for a free trial download.

CREATIVE ENGINE: Rosenstern and Gildencrantz

The sad fate of two — make that three — characters who suddenly realized, in the middle of a book, that they had no business being there at all.


Laura reads a composition by my great-grandmother, Annie Gunn, who was twenty years old at the time she wrote this in 1886. You can see her amazing handwriting in the image above and enjoy the charm of her writing in the podcast.


In addition to the sneak peeks we offered to you of our upcoming projects, we let you know that our ‘Eventide’ novel will be available on for their Kindle readers within days! We’ll post a link here to where you can get yours as soon as it is available.

DragonHearth at GENCON 2010 Live!

PORT OF CALL: Gencon Indy 2010 Convention Live!

Felicia Day

Felicia Day and Tracy Hickman ... isn't Gencon fun?

Our live edition of DragonHearth recorded as it happened at the Gencon Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana the afternoon of August 6th. I am joined by Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary and XDM fame as well as our own Laura Hickman as we take questions from the audience and enjoy our time together.

Most definitely NOT featured in our live podcast presentation but nevertheless a memorable and delightful time for me was meeting Felicia Day, star of ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog’ and ‘The Guild.’ She is among the three nicest people I have ever met and her consideration and generosity impressed me greatly.

And, in as much as I am such a fan of her work that I actually SANG part of ‘Dr. Horrible’ at Killer Breakfast this year — I just had to put the picture of us together here and brag about meeting her.

Eventide Reading

DRAGONSBARD: Eventide Chapter 4 Reading

As we have been preparing for the Gencon Game Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, we thought we would share with you a sample chapter from our Dragon’s Bard Eventide project. This is chapter 4 entitled ‘The Millinery and the Pixies’ — read largely by Laura — and we both hope you’ll enjoy it. This chapter introduces us to Melinda Oakman, the town millinery and her trials not only at creating a ‘quest hat’ for Jarod Klum but in dealing with some most unlikely — and unwelcome — house guests.

Our next podcast will be from the Gencon Game Convention in about two weeks. We hope you’ll join us there!
