Total Immersion in a Novel World

I'm very excited to be forging a new path of sorts with San Francisco company RPGlory.  If you're not familiar with what an RPG is, it's short for "Role-Playing Game," the most famous of which is, of course, "Dungeons and Dragons."  A real person pretends to be a character and a gamemaster serves as the narrator.

RPGlory is taking role-playing into a different place by creating custom-made worlds based on works of fiction.  Up until now, if you love a book like, say, HARRY POTTER, you had to hope it was famous enough to be made into a theme park to be totally immersed and "live" in that world.  Now RPGlory is making that possible for the rest of us...including, yes, me.

Ganesh City of BRAINEATER JONES is going to be one of the places you can visit through RPGlory's simple, Skype-based gaming interface.  On October 4 we'll be playing a newbie-friendly game set in the BRAINEATER JONES world.  If you want to participate, all you have to do is contribute $50 to RPGlory's Indiegogo campaign.  I'll be in the game as well, playing the parts of all your favorite characters, like Alcibé, the Old Man, and even Jones himself.
Think this idea sounds fun but you're not too keen on playing a Prohibition-era zombie?  Well, not to fear gentle-yet-treacherous reader.  Other authors participating include T.M. Williams, S.G. Browne, and even the man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Craig DiLouie.

Oh, and in case you don't notice, there are two other exciting perqs that I'm offering:
1.)  Have a character named after you in an upcoming novel of mine
2.)  Create a character and have them appear in an upcoming novel of mine
More ways to immerse yourself in fiction!  Here's a video telling you a little bit more:
