Let's move on to something more pleasant. Sort of.
Tomorrow is Free RPG Day! For the first time I am, in a small way, involved; among the products being given away by participating shops is a monster book published by Lamentations of the Flame Princess, the publisher that doesn't do monster books, apart from this one and the other two. It's called Slügs! because all the monsters are slugs. I drew most of the slugs, and wrote a little bit about one of them.
(That's not one of mine. I wish I could do pictures like that!)
It would be brilliant if you pick up a copy of Slügs! tomorrow, but the idea behind the event is to get people into games shops to buy and play, and to build a community. When you do pop in, mention why you're there so the shop staff know what you're interested in and what to order in the future; at the very least they will know that Free RPG Day works and will be more open to participating in future.
Have a chat with the people there. Find out what they're playing, tell them what you're playing. Make some contacts, perhaps try a new game.
Buy something too, even if it's just some dice. You can never have too many dice, yes?
