Buried Tales Released

-June 17th, 2009

It’s official! Buried Tales of Pinebox, Texas is shipping this week to distributors. If you want the print book, visit the Buried Tales site for a list of online retailers or ask your FLGS to order TWL6001.

Today also marks the release of the Buried Tales ebook. At the moment, you’ll find Buried Tales on the Midnight Cellar and the OneBookShelf family of sites, including RPGNow, DriveThruRPG, and DriveThruHorror. From those sites, you can download a PDF. Within the next couple of days we’ll be adding a second file in EPUB format, which is the relatively new universal ebook format. That format, which is reflowable, makes for a better reading experience on portable e-ink devices. We also have a Kindle edition in the works, which will be available through Amazon.com (naturally). We hope to have that up by the end of the weekend.

There’s one thing I’d like to mention about the e-book. We’re pricing it low–only $4.99–compared to the print price. At that price, we’re not making much money on the ebook. We priced it low because we really want y’all to give Buried Tales a try. We have faith that if you try it, you’ll like it enough to buy it in print. If (or rather when) you read and enjoy the Buried Tales ebook, please consider picking up a print copy for your shelves.

Midnight Cellar 2.0

-February 4th, 2008

For those of you who haven’t visited 12 to Midnight’s store in the last few days (surely you’ve been to the Midnight Cellar recently), I’d like to point out a not-insignificant change. Whereas before, you found the store at http://shop.12tomidnight.com, now when you visit that address you’re automatically forwarded to http://midnightcellar.com.

As I promised in the state-of-the-company report at the beginning of the year, we have moved the store to a new server. While we were at it, we decided to give the shop its own domain name. If you have already shopped at the Midnight Cellar, all your account information was transferred to the new server. However, should you have a problem logging into your account and re-downloading your purchases, please let us know. We’re also looking for feedback on Google Checkout. How is it working out for you? Are you avoiding the shop because we don’t offer other payment methods like, Paypal? Let us know!

Please take a moment to visit the not-necessarily-new-but-definitely-improved midnightcellar.com. You’ll immediately notice that the new site is blazing fast! This is just Step 1 in our evil plan to coerce you into giving us money in exchange for cool RPGs and (soon) related products. Keep checking back, because the store–and 12 to Midnight–are only going to get better.
