I LOVE the McAllen Public Library! I get a lot of writing and editing done there—and reading, of course! The Black Iron Café in the library is also where I discovered the magic of frappés. MPL hosts interesting events, including the McAllen Public Library Writing Circle meetings. It’s just a great place all around, and I am honored to have my book featured in their collection.
PSA: Support your local libraries and bookstores! They are important hubs for the literary scene in your community. Keep calm and hyena on.
Choice of Games, the Nebula-nominated publisher of interactive fiction, is offering up to 40% discounts this week on all their games! If you’re curious about choice-based games, now is a great time to check them out!
I discovered Choice of Games last year. Since then, I’ve played more than fifteen of their titles and look forward to playing many more. Choice of Games’s interactive novels present the player with fun, interesting, and meaningful choices that shape the plot, the player character, and that character’s relationships. Each game packs a wide variety of possibilities into a single story, allowing the player to play through that same story in different ways to explore multiple pathways, strategies, and goals. With science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, and more in their stable of nearly 100 games, Choice of Games has an interactive novel for everyone!
Learn more about the discount in this Choice of Games blog post: https://www.choiceofgames.com/2019/06/sitewide-sale/ Happy choosing!
*Note: I am currently writing an interactive novel for Choice of Games, but I am not an employee of Choice of Games, nor was I involved in the creation of any of the games for sale this week. I am simply a player and a fan.
