October Sales Report

How did I do in October?

Another month down, and a busy one at that. Right now I’m working on NOD #6, which will be a free PDF download as well as a print-on-demand product. In a couple weeks I should publish PARS FORTUNA (finally), and I’m working on Mystery Men! and another Hexcrawl Classic for Frog God Games. October was a pretty good month for sales, but a bit down on pageviews. Not surprising, though, as I didn’t post as much in October as I did in past months – partially because I took a vacation, but also because I’m spending more time on publishing projects than I was in the past. The main thing for me, though, is that I’m thoroughly enjoying both the blog and the publishing, and want to thank everyone out there in internet land for making all of this possible!
