Arcane Synthesis: A Blended-Genre Anthology (Excerpt)

Hi all, I created an author page over at Goodreads and put the book up there. I also made a book page for Arcane Synthesis on our QT Games website (I’ll update the rest of the site one of these days).

Why not drop by Goodreads or our site and check it out?! Add the book to your read list or read more about it. If you’ve read the book already, let us know what you think! Thanks! For your convenience, I’ve included an excerpt right in this very blog post, with a good amount of art to boot! Cool, huh? Well, I think so anyway.

Here’s a taste of Arcane Synthesis:

The book turned out great and I am excited to be moving forward. Seriously folks, how many cool projects QT Games publishes is going to be mostly in your hands—as you stand with us like you did with our Arcane Synthesis Kickstarter, and as you provide feedback, reviews —all that good word of mouth stuff, and as you show interest, we’ll keep pushing forward. We have some really awesome projects in the works, but we can’t do this without you!

The print books are out and lookin’ pretty, with exciting stories throughout, but I’ll let you be the judge! Yeah, I’m feeling a little giddy right now.

I shipped out a pile of books to those due them and set up shop on, and (the stories are all part of my Cosmoverse Campaign Setting and Cosmothea RPG after all, and we still hope to produce setting books as fans show interest—purchase links are on the left side of the excerpt widget).

I’m afraid I have to temporarily set aside the mini book I’ve been working on (Cosmoverse World Tour #0) despite being uber excited about that new series, in order to jump on ebook creation for Arcane Synthesis (not a bad reason, but I’ll look forward to diving back in—I have big plans for that new series).

We’re just getting warmed up. Hm . . . I need to find time to finish designing my latest card game based on Cosmoverse magic. Now where did I leave my Tardis?

Are you a Book Reviewer? Do you have a book review blog?
If you’re a regular fiction reviewer and like multi-genre stories (or as I prefer to call them, blended-genre), then I think you’ll get a kick out of these stories, and I’d love a review—contact me at bob [at]

[Shoot—this post was supposed to be my Designer Diary #9 – Part 2 on publishing. I promise my next blog post will be Part 2. Slipped my mind with so much on my plate and I had to get this post out of my system!]


About Bob Whitely/QT Games

Welcome to QT Games! Mission Never publish junk or waste people's time. Publish only high-quality fiction and games. 'Nuff said. Company Overview QT Games LLC was created to publish blended-genre (fantasy blended with sci-fi, etc.) fiction, board, card and roleplaying games for a discerning gaming community. Unlike most small press, we have very strict standards: Only pro writing, pro editing and pro art. That means that if we can't get it right, we find someone who can. We pay well for what we don't do in-house. We don't cut corners on quality. This means we stand to make less money than other small publishers, but that's okay with us. We value your time and money, so we're willing to take the bullet. We've designed a large number of games and written a pile of stories. Now we're polishing some of them and getting them out the door. 'Bout time, we know. Good stuff ahead!
