Our Art in the Afternoon event will include appetizers, desserts, and a cash bar. Live music will be provided by Carmel High School students. Along with food and entertainment, several Carmel artists will be showcasing (and selling) their work.
It's very easy to demonize, fear monger, and dehumanize people we disagree with. To do so, though, makes us forget that most people will - in the end - consider the greater good and the humanity of those with whom they may disagree.
I've been lurking about the community for a few months, but with the release of our book we wanted to offer this community (and a few others) a special discount. While the main narrative traces the evolution of computer games, it does so by exploring how Dungeons & Dragons has helped shape computer games and the communities involved with them.
We thought that some of you might be interested in the book. So if you go to Smashwords (see the link below), you can get the book for $2.99 using this code (MH43A) at checkout.
You can also find the book in other formats (including that weird “print” thing) at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and other retailers. However, the discount is only applicable through Smashwords.
We're also willing to discuss providing a review copy if you're interested in writing about the book :) You can contact us through the our blog www.dungeonsanddreamers.com, and we can discuss particulars.
Thanks for reading :) And hope to chat with you.
