Life is still not really back to normal following my father’s death, but it looks more-or-less like I can get back to the normal release schedule for Freelance Traveller—and I’m probably more thankful for that than you are.
This is the March/April issue, which means that some time before the next issue comes out, the Kickstarter for TravellerCON/USA will be initiated. We still don’t have a declared theme yet, but I’ll be sure to keep the community updated as I learn more—watch the TML, the Mongoose forums, and Citizens of the Imperium; with Google+ shutting down in April, this issue’s release is the last announcement going to those communities, and I’ve not yet determined what Freelance Traveller will be using for a social media presence after that. We do know that we have given up on the Lancaster Host; this year, we’re moving to Morgantown, PA, and their Holiday Inn. I’ve seen pictures, and it really looks like a better site for us for both the short and long term. Please, even if you’ve been disappointed with the facilities of the past few TravellerCONs, pledge with us and come this year, to the new site, and help us revitalize TravellerCON!
It’s also time for the usual reminder that Freelance Traveller depends on fan support. We have a lot of good material already “printed”; it’s all come from fans like you—many of whom probably thought the same thing many of you are thinking—”I can’t possibly write that well!”. Wrong, wrong, wrong! You can—and we’ll help, if you send us something to start with! The trick to being a good writer is to write, and keep on writing. I’ve heard it said that a professional writer’s first million words are utterly unpublishable—but I’ve also seen evidence that with help, from other writers, from editors, and from readers, that first million words can be cut down by quite a lot. So… start writing!
