I have been lucky enough to work and know so many amazing people in and around the gaming industry that it felt wrong not to try and promote them while I shamelessly talk about myself.
This list is only going to get longer. Either that or I will die and it'll be stuck as is. Welp, good luck everyone!
Lilith Matilda Gearheart
If you want someone with insight into how to approach writing and marketing in a capacity that is geared toward mental health, and understanding how to be accepting of mental illness, then Lily is for you. Their quality editing and writing allow for comedy to shine through in a way that everyone can laugh at without feeling like a jackass. Unless they're a jackass. Then they should feel like one.
Check them out at LilyMatilda.com. They'll aid you in understanding that it's okay to fall down, get your teeth kicked in, and then get back up. Why? Because you aren't alone and we can do it together.
Oh, and there's a bunch of artsy crap, too.
Elisa is basically the dopest. If you want a brilliant editor that understand the gaming industry while preserving your voice then Elisa rocks it. I was so grateful to have her as my primary editor at Privateer Press and have since worked with her in a variety of ways. While pitching panels to PAX, Elisa was there to connect me with an amazing range of voices and personalities just because she knew it would help.
She is kind, compassionate, thoughtful, but willing to kick your ass. Most recently she has been an editor for Bungie and has strong opinions on companies supporting their front-facing voices better.
Adam Oligschlaeger & Broken Egg Games
I've worked with Adam on so many things. The picture to the left is of both us, but he is the handsome one.
From phenomenal promoter to a genius with a laser cutter, Adam is your guy. Located in Arizona, Adam is one of the hardest working people I know. To be fair, if I put them on this list then they mean a lot to me and I want them to mean a lot to you!
While Adam focuses primarily on tabletop gaming accessories, I am sure he could do all kinds of neat projects for you if you ask him nicely.
