Something Big Is Coming For A Hat In Time Tomorrow


As you may already know, I'm a big fan of A Hat in Time—which is why I'm so hyped that they have a big announcement coming tomorrow!

This image was posted to Gears for Breakfast's official Twitter account a few days back. To me it teases a "Nintendo Direct" style livestream announcement. I'm sure it won't be as massive as Nintendo's live events—this is a small indie team, after all—but the hype is no less real for it.

The livestream will begin at 3pm EDT / 12pm PDT tomorrow, April 25th on their Twitch channel. Go follow them on Twitch to catch it live yourself. I will be tuned in, and posting my summary and thoughts shortly after the stream, so if you can't make it I'll be sure to update you on what went down.

As for what they could be announcing... it could be any number of things. A new DLC? A release date for the Switch port? Something really radical, like a sequel or a new game by Gears for Breakfast?

The biggest clues we have to go on is the image above and their recent marketing campaign centered around the hashtag #WhereIsHatKid.





This hashtag has been going for awhile, and it's unclear if it's meant to tease something new or is just a fun guessing game with the fans (although the announcement post also has #WhereIsHatKid, which makes me believe they could be related). Another interesting point is, in the announcement image, Hat Kid appears to be missing her hat!

So what is coming? We'll just have to wait. They did confirm that no, sadly it isn't an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (as epic as that would be). My guess is a new DLC announcement. They've already said there's going to be one more, and they recently talked about the Switch port, so if it was that they probably wouldn't make such a big deal out of it.

What do you think will be announced tomorrow? Are you hyped? Do you plan to watch the announcement live? Let me know in the comments section!

High-Intensity Interval Writing; How to Write More in Less Time

I check the clock to see it's a little past 4 in the afternoon. For the most part, it's been a lazy day; woke up with some coffee, played with my kids, had a leisurely lunch break. My goal for the day was to crank out some writing on my new book, but I only spent about three and a half hour actually writing.

How much progress did I make? over 4,600 words. Nearly three times the daily number people shoot for during National Novel Writing Month, or what will someday be about 18 pages in the novel. It was a record-breaking number, yet it felt like I hardly worked at all. I threw all those words on paper without stressing, or pressure, or working long grueling hours. What I did that day was sustainable and repeatable, not a one-time fluke success.

What did I do that worked so well? I used the same principle I do with exercise.

No Longer "Pay What You Want," But Still Lots of Free Books

Wow, I haven't made a blog post since the launch of Mothman's Return? So much for keeping up with this! That being said, it's been nearly two months since the release of the latest Enoc Tales adventure, and I'm making a few adjustments to how I'll be getting these books out to as many people as possible.

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has read "Tale of the Mothman's Return!" The response for this book has been amazing! By now several people have finished it, and reviews are coming in—and boy are they positive! Here are a few things people have to say about it...
"What an exciting book! I couldn't put it down! Characters, scenes, details...all so clear! This author's knowledge of facts and events is so impressive! So colorful and magnetic...you will be glad you purchased this book! I love it! I can't wait for the next novel by Edison T. Crux!"
"I'm always a fan of Edison's work, and his latest book is no exc…

Exhausting Year At The Crux Home

I settled in to write this blog post, and suddenly banshee screams filled the house. I went to see what was wrong. Nothing. Nothing at all. Alex—my autistic 4 year-old son—was screaming his head off for no discernible reason. Sometimes he can talk, a little, but he much prefers constant screaming. So far I've tried everything I know of to help calm him down—made sure his tablet is working, gave him reassuring hugs, comforted him—but forty minutes later there's no sign of slowing down.

This is a pretty normal day for me now.
I know I've fallen off the face of the Earth again. My YouTube channel abruptly died, there's been no word from me on social media, and that book that's been "almost finished" for a year is in that same, stranded condition.

It hasn't exactly been a fun year, but it's time I explain what I've been up to (and—with any luck—what you can expect in the future)
What happened? About a year ago, things were going pretty good. My Y…
