Bill Peters - January 2018 Update
on the Campaign Eylau-Friedland project is halfway done. I
finished up with the materials for the Winter campaign and have pressed
on to working on the order of battle file for the Battle of Friedland.
So far most of the I Corps (Victor) is done. There are five more French
corps to work on and then I move on to the Russian army.
artwork for the game "Republican Bayonets on the Rhine" should be done
by the end of the month. The game should release sometime in February.
John Tiller and Rich Hamilton have been working with the Design Studio
folks on the Panzer Campaign Gold releases so the game release date for
"RBR" is dependent on that being finalized.
I began work on my
first novel. I have written two chapters and will continue work on the
project on a regular scheduled format so I continue to make progress
rather than write "when I feel like it." I am setting aside certain
parts of the week to write. I will gather materials for the novel
during these hours as well as add in more material to the novel.
am still living with relatives in the San Diego area. Everything is ok
for now. Looking to find a more permanent housing sitaution before May.
I turn 57 this month and am very happy to be able to live in the cool
San Diego area. This has made working more hours possible as we do not
get a severe summer here like they do in the inland Los Angeles valley
where I was living.
am still looking for folks that would
like to sponsor me in my quest to design computer and board games and write novels. So
far I have published eight titles with John Tiller Software and one
title with Slitherine Ltd. I have many more titles I would like to
publish but for the last year I have had problems paying for my rental
space (garage - $300.00). I am
barely making ends meet. I have dropped my cell phone coverage and
have purchased Skype phone capability which I can use on my PC or on
the Smart phone I was using back in November via the Skype ap and any
existing WiFi network. It costs about $107/year. Can't beat that price!
employment is now difficult for me due to my age and health. I am being
turned down for even entry level work. Working at home both keeps my
blood pressure in check and helps me to avoid work induced injuries to my
lower back or nervous system. All of my past employment was in driving
or IT Support and Security, fields that I can no longer work in due to health.
have two titles I am working on for John Tiller Software and a
new Napoleonic series I hope to publish in the next two years.
several of my own board game ideas and I want to publish novels. I
would like to write and publish with Amazon Publishing. To do this I
need a little help each month to help
subsidize my meager royalty payments and other funds I obtain now and
A disability claim is out of the question at this time. So
like the composers of old I am asking for folks to help me out until I
can get enough royalty payments coming in and a part time job so that I
can make ends meet. If you would like to help me out I appreciate it. I
am not asking for charity. I am working and have projects to produce in
the future as well to help keep the Wargame Hobby rolling.
you would like to help out please send funds via Pay Pal to
email@example.com. Please use the "gift" payment choice. I will be
posting the total amount I have received here on this page at the top.
If you absolutely cannot donate via Pay Pal then contact me at the
above email address and I will send you a mailing address where you can
My goal is to get at least $400 in support help per month. If I
reach $600 in any given month I will post a note above that my goal has
been met. While you would be welcome to help out at that time I would
not expect it as that would be ample funding to pay my rent and other
small bills I have.
truly appreciate any amount that is given and again, I will pull this
page once I have a part time or full time job. Thanks for your support!
date you folks have given me over $6000.00 and I really appreciate it. Just
as important I appreciate those who are supporting me with their vote
of confidence and thoughts and prayers!
