Studio 2 Publishing Signs Open Game Table For Exclusive Retail Distribution
I am very pleased to announce that as of today, I have entered into a contract with Studio 2 Publishing for the exclusive retail distribution of Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs (Vol. 1). S2P currently publishes and distributes games such as Savage Worlds, Deadlands, The Edge of Mignight, and many many more. It's very likely you already have many games they distribute on your game shelf.
This is huge huge news!!!
One of the original goals of Open Game Table was to place a physical book on the shelves of bookstores and game hobby shops all over the country to draw attention our excellent RPG blogging community. With this new contract in place, this will no doubt be a success!
The anthology will not be seen in your FLGS for another 3 or 4 months though, as S2P needs time to ramp up and put the anthology through their usual retail promotion cycle. For example, the book will be listed in the next edition of the Greater Games Industry Catalog with a "vendor code" (OGT0001), and retail stores need to be given time to order a few copies, etc. So, I have to exercise my patience... but in the meantime, Open Game Table will still be available online through Lulu.com and Amazon.com. So, if you can't wait PLEASE jump over there and pick yourself up a copy.
So... thanks again to EVERYONE who has pitched in to make this book at success! And thanks to Jim Searcy at S2P for being so damn awesome!
