Beautiful Brains Last Chat This Thursday

Beautiful Brains Books and GamesBeautiful Brains Books and Games*—one of our most fervent retail supporters—will host the last of their weekly web chats this Thursday, January 30, 9:00 – 10:00 pm Eastern. After the last few years of new topics and guests every Thursday night, they’re going out with a bang—their last chat will be Shane Hensley’s first!

Don’t worry, nobody’s going away. Beautiful Brains Books and Games will continue to be on the web and at select convention venues, and we’re certainly not letting Shane wander off on an ice floe to vanish in the seaborne mists.** But this may be your last chance for a live web chat with Shane Hensley as the special guest of Clint and Jodi Black! And you never know who else might sneak into the shadows of the chat…

* For those of you big on formal disclosures, Beautiful Brains is probably such a big supporter because it’s run by Jodi Black, our Marketing and Licensee Manager, long-time Pinnacle supporter, and wife of our Savage Worlds Brand Manager Clint Black.

** Since he lives in Arizona, this is generally a pretty easy thing to keep from happening.
