My kingdom for an old dog.

Hello everybody, resident part time Wizard here. You know, from Ravania Entertainment? Never heard of it? Well check it out here then.

Other than bragging about my my newly crafted website, I've had a lot on my mind recently. Hopefully this might translate into some more regular posts on this here blog thingy, or at the very lest into some productive action and book related writing.

So I find myself today sitting in a living room that is not my own, listening to a dog bark in it's sleep, a dog that is also not my own, while watching a documentary on nutrition on a t.v. that is also not my own. That's an awful lot of things that are not my own. The reason for this is because I am house sitting for a friend. Thus far, it's a pretty easy gig, but the dog is a mixed bag. It's still a very young dog, and seems to have boundless energy... especially at night.

An example! Yesterday, we went for a nice long walk. As I am not it's normal master, it was a little more of a challenge than I would have liked, namely it was pulling on the leash more than I might have liked, which necessitated frequent stops for reminders of the command structure in this outfit. Anyway, eventually we finished this walk, and we got home, and the dog immediately went to it's cushion and fell asleep. I thought this was pretty rad, so I went off to bed myself, only to be woken frequently by said dog, who wished to be let in and out almost every hour through the night, though seemingly not to do it's business, but because it wanted to play. Needless to say I was not amused.

My body did not take well to this particular evening. I am a wreck today. My eyes are burning, my body hurts, and I've had more naps today than one could consider decent. To top things off, the thought of going on another walk makes me tired just thinking about, especially since it seemed to do jack all for the dogs energy level.

But I digress! My intent was not to complain about a dog which was not mine (though this reinforces my choice not to get a pet). Thinking on it though, I'm not sure what my purpose was, a fact which I may ascribe to my current lack of meaningful sleep.

Until next time, this is the part time wizard signing off. Man, I really thought I was going to say something about books or entertainment today...

All's quiet on the northeren front

Some exciting progress to be had by I and the boys at Ravania Entertainment. We had a little ol' sit down the other day and talked about the things we wanted to do and see in the near future. One such item was the creation of a website.

Right now we've got a Facebook page, which you can find here if you haven't already found it, and you know, it works pretty good for what we use it for. We've been using it to post our regular comic updates, our book launch announcements, and generally anything we may feel like posting.

All in all, it's a pretty neat little facebook page, and I think we're using it pretty good. However, it's not every organized. After we post something, and a suitably long time passes, whatever we wanted to draw your attention to is quickly lost in the torrent of updates. So, you know, not ideal.

Thus we decided that a website would be pretty swish. We had one once before, but it was focused on Genesis Project. Genesis Project is a fantastic universe created by our glorious leader, Aaron Smith, but in the time since the old website to today, we've come up with many other intellectual properties and now need a little more than just the one site. Thus is born our soon to be launched new website.

The new site will serve as a central hub for all of our endeavors, the one stop shop if you will, which will whisk you away to which ever part of our tiny empire you may wish to visit. I'm very excited to show this thing off, as I made it myself.

Well that's a bit untrue, I had a little help, namely the Go Daddy web page builder. That thing is seriously slick. I made the page in a day. Granted, I can almost guarantee you I'll be making changes to it after it launches, but it was really easy all in all which was cool.

I just wish it was ready to go now, cause then I'd just link it right now. But alas, I am waiting on a single picture. Oh well.

Till next time!
