A shout out for Ghamak

Leave a comment

And now for my next trick, I will do something completely different.

One thing I learned in my early days in the trenches as a self-publisher is, pushing my colleagues’ work costs me nothing, and it is good both for my readers – that discover something new and interesting – and for the colleagues, because this way they my reach a new audience.
And I cash in some good karma.

So, I will start pushing my friends’ work here, once in a while – new books, Patreon pages and what else. And right now I will start with something really different – Francesco A. Pizzo’s Patreon page for his Ghamak project.

Take a look at this…

Francesco is an artist, and he has that ability I most envy – he can put his ideas in a graphical form, he can actually show you his creations.
I am positively in awe of the level of detail and of the imagination his creations show, and I am planning an interview to learn more about him and his work (watch this space!)

In the meantime, if you are into fantasy miniatures, you might like to support Francesco on his Patreon page – you’ll get the files to 3D print your own copies of his minis (and a lot more, depending on your pledge level).

Now, the reason behind this: the fact is, you see, that one of my purposes this year is to make my Patreon grow. I will be doing new stuff, using new tools and whatever, but I will not talk about that right now.
So I said to myself, why not start and try help others develop and grow their audience? It can’t hurt me, right? And it might do me good.
There will be more to come.
