A couple days ago, the Worldbuilders team showed me this picture that had shown up for the t-shirt design contest.

I looked at it for the space of a short breath, then shrugged. "What is it?" I asked.

"It's an apple that thinks its a pear," they told me.

And my heart absolutely broke. Imagine the sound of a person makes when they see the most adorable kitten picture ever. That's the sound I made, times a thousand.

There's still time to get in on the design contest if you're interested. Details here:

My book. In space.

I'm not even kidding.

Head over to the blog for the details, and for a hint about a few rapidly approaching events.

Wow. Thanks so much for sharing this. As a dad, with a couple little boys, I try to be careful about not putting gender expectations on them. Hearing stories like this helps me understand how to do that.

For those of you who haven't seen it yet. I'm helping one of my favorite game designers by writing a tiny piece of a game.

Details here: http://kck.st/1QF2A8X

Only five days left to get in on the action.
Lone Shark Games is raising funds for The Apocrypha Adventure Card Game on Kickstarter! A card game and roleplaying game in one box, from Mike Selinker and the designers of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.

While reading the contest details, I had a vision of a t-shirt. Did a quick google search, and it doesn't seem to exist. I'm stoked to see if I can make this happen.
