Free 16-page Preview of Never Unprepared: The GM’s Guide to Prep

We’ll be opening preorders for our newest book, Phil Vecchione’s Never Unprepared: The Complete Game Master’s Guide to Session Prep [1], on June 4th — which means it’s time for our final preview.

Today’s preview is a sample from the near-final PDF (we’re doing one last pass for typos and checking over the index right now):

This preview includes the table of contents, the introduction, How to Use this Book, part of Chapter 2: The Phases of Prep, Part of Chapter 9: Your Creative Cycle, and part of Chapter 10: Your Personal Prep Templates, as well as the cover and samples of the book’s interior artwork. The book is 128 pages, digest-sized (6×9), and includes a comprehensive index — as well as a whole lot more than we can include in this sample!

If you’re hungry for more info on the book, you can check out its product page [1], the original announcement [3], the cover preview [4], and the interior artwork preview [5].

This has been a long, fun road for the Never Unprepared team — especially Phil — and I can’t wait to share the outcome with you!

Looks really helpful–I’ll definitely pick up a copy when I have some spare cash.

In your final proofread, check out page 86, the 1st word of the 2nd paragraph

Thank you! I believe I stopped on 75 last night, so I hadn’t gotten there yet. (I sure wish I’d caught it before the preview went up, though!)

[6] – No luck on the time machine, but there’s a whole chapter on honestly assessing your free time, mapping it out, and making realistic decisions based on how much of it you have.

I could not see anything indicating price. I was just wondering and interested in it. Looks great.
