Hey everybody. This is Jack, uploading from the shitty gas station at the edge of town. I know a lot of you have expressed some concern because you haven't heard from me in a while. Well, let me put your minds at ease and say that I am still alive for the time being.
Once again, I must apologize for going quiet on you all like that again. I've been particularly busy this last month dealing with some mysterious things that I can't wait to tell you all about soon.
To make up for the poor communication recently, I've decided to start a little newsletter on a weekly(ish) basis, where I'll attempt to answer some of your questions and fill you in on what I'm working on currently. If you've got a question you'd like to see me squirm out of answering, feel free to ask in the comments and maybe I'll get to it next week.
(As this is the first newsletter, and I don't have any questions yet to answer, I'll go ahead and make some up.)
Q. I heard you just released a book. What's that all about?
A.Well let me start by saying what a terrific question, you handsome and intelligent and tall person, you. Yes, as a matter of fact, I just released my first ever novel "Tales from the Gas Station: Volume One" on paperback and ebook!
The novel is intended to be a standalone story, so if you have no idea who I am and have never heard anything about the Gas Station, you'll still be able to follow along. It contains a retelling of my earliest blog adventures, including the Kieffer incident, and my encounter with the Dark God.
Q. Is the book just a retelling of the stories that were already posted?
A. No. Although there are some crossover story lines, the book is a much more in depth look at my time at the gas station. The ratio is approximately 30% retelling of familiar stories to 70% brand new material.
Q. I'm a writer, too. Would you be interested in doing a collab sometime?
A. I've gotten this question a lot recently, and I wanted to make a blanket statement on the topic. I am truly honored by anyone that wants to work with me, but right now I am slammed. Most of my time and effort has been going into the second volume of TftGS and a couple other secret projects, and I'm just not in a place to take on any additional creative endeavors and give them the attention they'd deserve.
Q. When is the next noSleep update coming out?
A. Oh yeah, I left that most recent update on a bit of a cliffhanger, didn't I? Well, I intend to post the conclusion to this series arc this weekend, after we put together a party to kill that giant turkey demon that's been hanging out behind the gas station.
Q. Giant turkey demon?
A. What can I say? Things get weird around here during the holidays.
Q. Are you guys currently hiring?
A. No. You'll have to wait for one of the part timers to die. Sorry.
