Death by Cliche–Episode 6

At long last.  The sixth episode, almost 11 hours late.  :)

I apologize for the delay.  Carolyn hasn’t told me why the delay happened, but she does these the week before they release, so she had to do this one over Christmas Eve and Christmas.  I don’t know her plans for New Years.  <cough>

The episode proper starts at 2:32, for those of you who are sick of hearing the party introduced.

Some of you are probably wondering where Episode 4 is.  Monday is our official update day, I’ve just been posting earlier than that.  This time we discovered some sound quality problems with the last two chapters (we did that recording during a storm).  After deliberation, I decided that while the quality is a bit less than other posts, it’s not bad enough to have a significant negative impact you listening experience.  I’ve decided to post it as is.  We might rerecord it later, but I decided that giving it to you with just a little noise was better than delaying.

Expect the post in about 25 minutes.

Just a reminder.  If you like Death By Cliché, and you’re a gamer, you’ll love our serious gaming products.  Go to to see what we have.  Check out one of our short stories (start with Ulcer), or pick up The Echoes of Heaven Campaign Setting in the game system of your choice.  If you’re a 4th edition player, then Critical Matters is a must.  I’ll leave you with quotes from reviews of The Echoes of Heaven Campaign Setting.

Update on Print Version

I did some research today.  I’ll probably need to use Lulu or a like service to produce a print version of Death by Cliche.  We don’t have the kind of vast market that allows the big publishers to produce mass market paperbacks (there’s a reason they are call “mass market.”)  So right now the two possible versions appear to be:

Trade Paperback:  $14.99

Hardbound: $29.99

I’ll keep you apprised if anything changes.

Right now the book is back from the editor and in proofing.
