My Other Other Project

So, the gaming has finally slowed from a trickle to a dead halt.

Partially, this is because I've become extremely disenchanted with the local gaming scene (see comments in my last couple of posts). I'm just not getting any enjoyment from gaming anymore.

But this is also because I've been focused lately on my latest undertaking: my fiancee and I have been working for some months on getting a niche marketing communications agency off the ground. After much prep and planning, yesterday was the official start of business. So (warning: crass commercialism ahead) if you or anyone you know is in the entertainment/writing industry - specifically the horror/sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal/etc. genres - and needs help with their new media marketing or personal branding efforts or website design, please check us out:

  1. Best of luck to you. As the owner of my own boutique advertising agency that I started a little more than two years ago, I can attest that while it's very rewarding, it's also very tough going.

    But, I wouldn't trade it for going back to working for "the man" for anything.

    Cheers!

  2. Thanks, Martin - I appreciate it. Hey, you wouldn't perhaps be open to a little brain picking, would you? Most of Lili's contacts are either in California or the UK, so we've decided to focus our initial efforts on CA. We're currently trying to get a feel for the current cost of living, best areas to relocate to, state of the biz, etc. It'd be nice to talk to someone who's basically done what we're doing and who already lives in the area. If not, no biggie - just let me know.

  3. Hey there - of course I'm always happy to answer questions and help out however I can. Who knows - if our two businesses are complementary and don't necessarily compete with each other, maybe we could even partner to pitch new business! Ha! :) Anyway... why not send me an email at samothdm AT yahoo DOT com. That's my "gaming" email. I'm an obsessive/compulsive Virgo so everything has to be "organized" - I have four different emails: gaming, personal, bill paying, and work.

    Anyway, you can also check out my company website if you want here.

    Cheers!

  5. Hey Christopher - just wanted to make sure that you got my email reply that I sent to you last Wednesday. If you didn't get it, maybe check your SPAM folder to make sure. AND... if you still don't have it, let me know and I'll send it again! :)

  6. Hey, Martin. Nope, nothing there. If you could send it again, that'd be great. (You might try CCing my yahoo dot com email: xfatestoyx.) Thanks :)

  8. Yay! Email tag! You're it! (In other words: I re-sent the email that vanished into the aether. :P Let me know if you didn't get it.)
