Above is the logo for my new business, Black Shark Enterprises. I'm done with fear of what might happen if I do not put myself out there. I'm done with cowering in the dark always believing "Hey, I could do that" while I watch others succeed. I have decided to seize life with both of my hands and shake it until something good comes out of its ugly head. I have created a publishing house on drivethrurpg.com and today I will start work on creating the first product for the gaming side of the publishing house ~ The Pirate GM's Fist : A Collection of Tables for Navigating the Tricky Shoals of Gaming with Buccaneers.
I have also been working on a large project with the temporary title of The Treasure Fleet. It is an RPG supplement detailing a 20 ship treasure fleet during the age of piracy. It is my intention to do a Kickstarter campaign to get the money to publish this book. I have plans for gaming other projects as well, but I am most excited about the series of books that I will publish under the BSE banner.
I feel as if an enormous burden has been lifted off my shoulders. I cannot explain why I feel this way. Perhaps it is the public declaration of intentions that makes me feel so free. I don't know, but I have to get to work.
