Help Sponsor a Game Designer/Novelist

Goal for June 2018: 400 USD
Amount received so far:  100 USD



Bill Peters - June 2018 Update

I have finally moved back to Idaho after four years and three months in California. Its great to be back. I am staying with friends on the property they rent from a friend of ours. I live in their camper. Its cozy! I love the country and its just really what the doctor ordered for now. My goal is to get my Idaho driver's license, get a job, vehicle and new place to live in that order.

Work on the Campaign Eylau-Friedland (CEF) project is close to being done. I only have to finish up the campaign battles, design notes and then the usual stuff at the end: tutorial scenario and documentation followed by the product webpage. The artwork team of Mark and Joe are working on the Units "heads" (14 out of 17 groups finished) and the 3D still needs to be done. Game screens and other artwork remain for them to work on. My part of the project is nearing an end.

I have joined a new part of the John Tiller Software team and will go into more detail on that in the future. Basically I am going to be helping finish up projects that were let go by the original designers and I have new projects I will work on as well after that. Really excited about this and the wheels are already moving to get the work underway. I will wait until I am done with the campaign file for CEF before I embark on any new work. After that I will be very busy for a few years I hope.

I have not given up on my idea to write novels and hope to get working on those this year. Its just a matter of juggling all of my duties.


General Notice:

I 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 nine titles with John Tiller Software and one title with Slitherine Ltd. I have many more titles I would like to publish. I am now in Idaho and want to make a fresh start here. Its going to take a lot of cash, time and work to get it going. Once I have reached an earnings level of $2000 per month I will no longer need the support. I will have reached a point where once again I am self sufficient.

Support Statement:

Regular employment is now difficult for me due to my age and health. I am looking for even entry level work or simple driving jobs like for an auto parts store. I enjoy working from home because it allows me to take breaks from work when I feel the need. I have a regular schedule I keep when working from home and it works. I want to get a part time job outside the house to help supplement my game design or novel income. Any help you can give for the next few months would be greatly appreciated.

I have one Napoelonic title I am working on for John Tiller Software and a new Napoleonic series I hope to publish in the next two years. I also moved over to join David Freer and the Design Team to work on new titles for in the Panzer Campaigns and Panzer Battles series.

If you would like to help out please send funds via Pay Pal to wmp3662@gmail.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 send funds.

My goal is to get at least $400 in support help per month. Any additional funds received after that will help me out greatly in realizing my goal of having my own place again and continue to produce top notch products.

I 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!

Since 2015 when I started the support webpage you folks have given me over $6500.00 and I really appreciate it. Just as important I appreciate those who are supporting me with their vote of confidence and thoughts and prayers!
