This Week at ADB, Inc., 11-17 August 2013

Steve Cole reports:

This was a week of steady work on many projects. The weather this week was a little cooler (in the 80s) with some rain. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New as an e-book this week was Away Team Log, although a clerical error put it at $25 instead of the correct $20. We fixed this as quickly as we could. You can find it on both e23 and DriveThruRPG.

Steve Cole worked on Away Team Log, Captain's Log #48, fiction projects, and blogs. This week, Steve officially returned his office furniture to the normal arrangement, ending five months of wheelchair accessibility. A lot of Steve's week went into talking with insurance adjusters and roofing contractors about the hail damage to the roof. With the new Starlist form working and Jean advertising it, we got more Starlist requests this week than all of last year.

Steven Petrick worked on the Carnivons for SFB Module C6.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, and managed customer service.

Simone was off this week on a long-planned family vacation. We missed her.

Jean worked on Traveller Prime Directive and Away Team Log, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1706 friends), managed our Twitter feed (56 followers), did blogs, commanded the Rangers, dealt with Mongoose, took care of customers, and did some marketing (including the convention ad that hasn't been updated in five years). Jean sank a pirate fleet, scoring 100 skulls on her honor bars.
