Interactive Storytelling for Video Games: A Player-Centered Approach to Creating Memorable Characters and Stories

Hi Josiah! I just bough your video game writing book from amazon! :clap:

Didn't know you had written one of those! I've got a few writing books to help me with ROM, and the reviews said it was good for all story writing media! Can't wait for it to arrive, should be here in a month though :sweat:

You didn't know about it? Maybe I should have announced it a few more times... Anyway, yeah it's my book (based on the research I did for my master's thesis) and just came out several months ago. It's been getting excellent reviews, though I won't receive my first sales report for another couple of months. I hope you like it!

maybe I did read about it at the time and forgot! Either way, I'm looking forward to reading it!

The books arrived today and I've had a quick skim of it and it looks awesome. I love the fact you have case studies and screen shots from games!

You wouldn't believe how much work it took to get permission to use those screenshots... FYI, the handful of case studies without screenshots are because I either couldn't get in touch with anyone at the company (Atlus Japan, Sony) or was refused permission (Nintendo, Type-Moon, 2K, Eidos). Annoying, but I'm really happy that I got all the ones I did.

I've also ordered a copy of one of your other books "Guardian of the Stone: Bk. 1: Book 1 of the Verities Silex "

I found a UK supplier

Thanks! Though if you're going to be reading Guardian, I should probably send you a file with the newest version. That printed copy is something I self published a long time ago and, being self published, I didn't have a professional editor and a lot of typos managed to slip though. Over the years, I've gone back and fixed all(?) of them made some other improvements here and there. I'll e-mail it to you sometime soon.

Let me know what you think sometime. Though, as previous mentioned, I recommend the file I sent you over the hard copy. If you like it, I can always send you the sequels.
