Ame's Unboxing & Reviews: Klearlook Monitor Riser

I was given the opportunity to look over and test a Klearlook monitor desk riser. Take a look at it with me and try it out.  If you like it you can find your own at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BC8QPBY4. I do not get any affiliate pay, but the chance to try it is enough for me.


Also, you get a peek at one of the bunnies.

Upcoming royalties/sales updates, and upcoming Dragon Hearts RPG Yule quest

Now that my head feels less like it will explode when I do more than exist I will be able to calculate royalties and sales and pass that info on to authors and illustrators. Where appropriate I may send out royalties but I would honestly prefer to send your royalties out after December's figures are in. I did get a request for updates recently that I was unable to reply to. I will compile info from all outlets today, but again, this is going to change after next month's sales. And yes, I plan to take part in next month's Sale on Smashwords/Draft2Digital (they merged, and are still working on that according to my last mails from Smashwords). That Smashwords sale usually seems to help sales figures.


In other happenings yesterday I managed to finish writing the Yule 2022 seasonal challenge for Dragon Hearts RPG and submitted it to that project's coder/owner so that it can be set up and implemented for the site's players. Please be watching for an announcement when that goes live.

Brimstone667: Cold start on the 1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief cold weather

Here is another video that I helped my brother with for his channel. This time he was starting and moving his 1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief. Not shown is the snowplow attachment on the front, but he is ready to move snow when needed this winter.

1978 Chevy K30 Squad Cold Start with Brimstone 667 of Youtube

I helped with a video the other day for my brother's Youtube channel. He mentioned that he needed help with exhaust footage on cold start videos of some vehicles of his that were at my house. I was happy to help. He gives me a lot of assistance and with my condition I can't do a whole lot. So it was nice to be able to do a favor to repay him.

I will help him soon with getting a linktree set up that he can use for his Tiktok and similar.

Dragon Hearts RPG Halloween 2022

Things have been busy with Dragon Hearts RPG lately. The Halloween/Samhain seasonal quest for the year has been pushed live on the main website after the code was play tested.

Challenge setting:

Once again the leaves phase colours into their fall glory and then dry to blow away in the winds moving between the worlds. Did the forest really produce this many leaves though? Something doesn't seem quite right. Piles of leaves reach to the eaves of the houses and obscure the entrances of caves. They swirl through streets, forest paths, and even over the oceans and deserts. Carve a pumpkin? Expect to be greeted by an explosion of leaves and squash guts once you've got that top circle done.

Visit the event page to explore.

Dragon Hearts RPG 2.0 progress and a quick check in

 The Dragon Hearts RPG Beta Site has been updated.


Dragon Fangs and Black Days have been added.

While in beta you can purchase as many Dragon Fangs as you like for free.




Thank you Bear for all your hard work steadily redoing the code base to make for a more stable game site. It is exciting to see the progress toward being able to eventually merge these changes to the live main site.

Now, as to why I've been so quiet lately:
I have been dealing with some physical issues but I have also been very busy working with a client on their book during the few hours a day I am physically able to do so. I have several books that I need to post reviews of though and hope to be able to make more progress on my own writing and illustrations for a couple customers soon.
