Hi everyone!

It's my ten year anniversary for Matazone Halloween animations! For a decade
I've been trying to scare the pants off of you. Read more below...

***

In this news letter:
New animation!
Facebook group!
Year round-up
Webcomic
Short stories
Forums
Until next time...

(Unsubscribe information at the end of this mail)

*** New animation! ***

It's that time of year again, so it's time for another Matazone Halloween
animation. This year it's rather special - it's my first video on YouTube, it
was created through co-operation with people in three countries and two
continents, and frankly it's just darn tootin' swanky:

PLEASE share it with your friends! I love making these things and I want as many
people to enjoy them as possible. Digg it, Twitter it, Facebook it... Pass it
on!

Also, please give it a thumbs up on YouTube and add comments smile.gif

*** Facebook group! ***

Lots of the old friends from the forums and new Matazone companions have
recently been joining together in the Matazone Facebook group. Drop in if you
fancy hearing about new things and finding like-minded people:

*** Year round-up ***

I'm still in the Netherlands, travelling around Europe a little when I get the
time, and generally having lots of fun with lots of cool people. I'm also now in
charge of the Games Design & Production department at the best games development
academy in the Netherlands, so that's rather lovely.

... And no, my Dutch still hasn't improved much.

Some progress was being made with my novel (yes, I know I've been saying that
for ive years) then life got complicated again. I promise you, I will one day be
writing to you all to say where you can get my novel and finally read it!

Life is still bloomin' brilliant, and I hope you're having fun too!

*** Webcomic ***

The Matazone webcomic, Trouble Down Pit, is still up and running. There are
nearly 600 strips on there now, and new ones are always added every Monday and
Friday biggrin.gif

http://comic.matazone.co.uk

*** Short stories ***

If you want some more spooky stories then try the downloads over here:

http://www.matazone.co.uk/shop/index.php?cPath=28

They're not recommended for kids, but if you fancy a horror 5 minute horror
story on your iPod/MP3 player then give them a try.

Of course, you can also see all of the old animations on my site, and the
Halloween animations can be found here:

http://www.matazone.co.uk/menus/miscmenu.html

*** Forums ***

The Matazone forums have been up and running for over nine years and lots of old
faces have been coming back on there recently, so if you haven't visited for a
while then now would be a great time to pop in again, we'd love to hear from you
again!

http://www.matazone.co.uk/forums

*** Until next time... ***

I guess that's it for the year! It's been a weird and complex one in my personal
life, but it's turning out to be awesome in the end. I hope your lives are full
of as much happiness as mine... And mine will be even better now I've finished
this animation and can stop dreaming about graveyards!

Don't forget to check by the webcomic for your regular Matazone fix!

Thanks for reading, have a great Halloween, and I guess I'll see you at the same
time again next year!

Have fun,

Mata
xxxx

As with most scary things, I didn't think I was frightened at all during the actual viewing. Then moop left me all alone in an empty, dark house this morning, and I started thinking about laughing corpses and smug GPS.

(Hmm, is that a spoiler? Would anyone be worried about being spoiled if they were reading the thread, anyway? I'll black it out, just in case.)

That's got to be the weirdest link-spammer I've seen in a while.

I wish there were a way to make it so that people could only add signatures after a few posts - I suspect that would deter most spammers enough to go somewhere else that's faster to spam.

It is, however, strangely in keeping with most of the stuff that goes on here. On a scale of 1-10 I give them a 7. Good use of context, although the spam was apparently quite obvious.

Lol. http://xkcd.com/810/

The animation was cool too smile.gif

Mata, what happened with those audiobook stories you did a while back? Was that a one off? Have you ever thought about doing something in podcast form?

Hmmm, that spammer's post said something nonsensical about scary things last time I looked in this thread, so I suspect it is actually one of the mods who wants to lick Mata's face over and over!

We all know that narrows it down to a select few, or should I say one? tongue.gif

Hmm... Who could that be... happy.gif

As for audiobooks versions of my stories - yes, a podcast would be possible, but it takes bloody ages to record and then edit out all of my 'umm's, 'ah's, mistimings, etc. Also, to be honest, there's very little reward for it. I'm considering compiling a whole bunch of the stories as a collection to release for the Kindle to see how that goes. There would be some new material in there (I have a couple of longer stories, one of which would take 1-2 hours to read aloud), so that's an option. Currently I'm busy enough with social things so working on releases isn't top priority, but it's definitely on the list of 'things I should get around to doing'. biggrin.gif
