Tomorrow is gaming marathon day. Me + a whole bunch of gamers from around the world will be aiming to play for 25 hours straight to raise funds for sick and injured kids. As promised I will be doing hourly updates on my progress, mental/physical condition, and what exactly I'm up to, but I won't be doing them here.
The best way to follow along is to subscribe to my Tumblr (http://monicaskuebler.tumblr.com/) or to my Facebook fan page (https://www.facebook.com/deathofcool).

This is going to be fun...
Holy smokes! I just met my Extra-Life 2013 fundraising goal! Thank you everyone who has supported me in this effort. Please stay tuned for all the wacky posts and updates during this Saturday's 25-hour game-a-thon. Love you all! [read more]
We're now ten days away from the day wherein I'll attempt to game for 25 hours to straight in order to raise funds for Sick Kids Hospital. As of this morning, I'm at 49% of my fundraising goal, which means I still need a few more sponsors. Can you help tip me over? It's a crazy challenge and a darned good cause... need I say more? xoxoxo

Each year I attempt to participate in at least one charity event. This year, for the first time, I've decided to take part in Extra Life (at the advice of a beloved gamer friend), and will be raising funds for the SickKids Foundation here in Toronto, who do some very good work saving young lives.
On November 2nd, 2013, I'll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds (from video games to board games and tabletop RPGs), and making an attempt to game for 25 STRAIGHT HOURS(!). On that day, I will be posting regular updates and photos to my social media accounts and Tumblr (http://monicaskuebler.tumblr.com/) reporting on my progress, and on what I'm playing hour to hour. Also, in the spirit of fun and getting my sponsors more involved, I'm taking requests! Which means if you want me to play something in ... [read more]

Over the Christmas holidays I'll be cutting together a book trailer for BLEEDER using Jerry's amazing chapter art. I had the chance to hear the score written especially for it earlier this week for the first time and I can honestly say it is a thing of a beauty. I have no idea how/why I've been blessed with so many amazing contributors on this project, but yeah, wow... just wow. I can't wait to share it with all of you.
In other news, I'll be revealing the cover art and teaser blurb for LETTERS FROM NEW YORK late next week. The novella's roughly a quarter written now and on track ... [read more]
