It has been sort of a strange week. Half the staff (Wayne, Chuck, Kathy) are either out sick or here working at half their usual capacity. As a result, everyone has been keeping to themselves, locked away in their rooms, coughing and feeling worn out. So far, I have somehow managed to escape the plague outbreak. Fingers crossed that things stay that way.
There are a lot products in the pipeline and all are moving forward, so I’m not sure why I am feeling frustrated and a little down this week. Probably because I’ve been steeped in paperwork and bookkeeping matters most of the week when I want (and need) to be writing. It may also be that I’ve worked too many weekends without a break and the fact that we’ve been flying high and working at top speed since Gen Con. You just can’t keep up that pace indefinitely. I wish you could.
It didn’t help that our air conditioning went on Wednesday morning. A 90+ degree day no less, and the frozen air conditioning line sent a steady stream into the ceiling tiles of my office. One tile got so soaked it came crashing down, and drenched part of my couch and the paperwork laying on it. The most frustrating part of this being we had this same issue only 5-6 weeks ago and had it supposedly been repaired. I was out of the office much of Wednesday, so I was not present to recognize the water issue. Wahhh. Yesterday was another hot and humid day, making work at the office miserable despite an array of fans going. I actually have one of the repair people here as I write this. I hope it is an easy, inexpensive repair.
UPDATE: Rifts® Poker Decks are hot, hot, hot
Both of the Rifts® Poker Decks are gorgeous and fun, and continue to sell like crazy. Nice. And remember Rifts® Savage Worlds Kickstarter supporters, the two Rifts® Poker Decks are now available as add-ons for Rifts® Savage World Kickstarter backers.
The two Rifts® Poker Decks have been selling like lightning, with a restock order arriving the morning right after we sold out the initial run of 150 decks! Whew. Talk about perfect timing. We’ll keep a close eye on stock and keep placing orders as necessary so we do not run out of stock.
