Check out the new RPG Bard Kickstarter project. RPG Bard allows authors and GMs to create beautiful roleplaying game books for D&D 5.0, 4.0, 3.5, Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and other game systems, then save them out to PDF for immediate use, sharing, or online, print, or print-on-demand sales. Our book "Industry Talk: An Insider's Look at Writing RPGs and Editing Anthologies" by Origins award-winning author Jennifer Brozek will be part of the backer rewards, along with four titles from other award-winning authors.
Here's a cover example.

As of April 1, Apocalypse Ink Productions has been in existence for 2 years. In that time, we have published 5 books: two non-fiction and three fiction. By the end of April, it will be seven books with a new Karen Wilson Chronicles book by Jennifer Brozek and the first of the Sheynan Trilogy by Dylan Birtolo. We also have a series of linked novellas coming up from Peter M. Ball in July and the next in the Gentleman Ghouls series by Ivan Ewert in August.
We’re proud of what we’ve created here at Apocalypse Ink Productions. We hope you’ll continue on with us in our journey.

After answering a variety of questions, reviewing industry contracts, and looking at our finances, we are looking to update our payment terms as follows.
- Authors will receive a royalty of 15% of the cover price of all physical print editions sold.
- Authors will receive a royalty of 35% of the cover price of all electronic e-book editions sold.
- All royalties earned will apply towards the Author advance.
AIP is more than willing to negotiate contract terms with individual authors, as we believe in paying authors what they are worth.

Things are moving apace here at Apocalypse Ink Productions. We decided we needed to shift release dates for our books around. First, Children of Anu, the second book in the Karen Wilson Chronicles by Jennifer Brozek, will be released in May 2013. Second, Jay Lake’s Process of Writing will be released in August 2013.
This is mostly because the editing on Jay’s book is going slow. Our editor wants to make sure that the edits she needs to make to change ten years’ worth of blog posts into coherent chapters meets with Jay’s approval. Also, with Jay’s forthcoming medical procedures, AIP does not want to put undue stress on Jay or his schedule when it comes time for edit requests and additional writing. Jay and AIP discussed this and decided pushing the book out a couple of months was best for everyone.
Famished: The Commons, the second book in the Gentleman Ghouls series by Ivan Ewert, is still scheduled for an October 2013 release.

With great delight, I can announce that all of our books are now available through Apocalypse Ink Productions directly if that is the way you choose to buy your books. We’ll keep the links up to all of the other sites for your convenience. However, we now have e-junkie working on the site to also accept your payment through Paypal.

Wednesdays will be our main work day for AIP to go over everything that needs all of our input - all sorts of business related stuff. Last Wednesday, we bought our first ISBNs and assigned the first one! An announcement on the first forthcoming book soon.
Other excitement included figuring out cost effective convention swag for Origins Game Fair where I, Jennifer Brozek (AKA the face of Apocalypse Ink), will be there are an author in the Library--selling books, speaking on panels, and playing in the upgraded play RPGs as a guest player. Sounds like a blast. We haven't completely narrowed down our swag list but we've got some cool stuff we think.
Other than that, things behind-the-scenes are moving at an acceptable pace. Thanks for coming along with us.
