Deuces, 2012

Coming soon…

So, since this will be the last VSB post of 2012—I know, I know, I know. It’s tragic. Please try not to cry too much—we’d like to end the year with a couple updates about what’s going on with us now and what to look forward to in 2013.

***When you come back in January, there will be some very noticeable changes with the site. Won’t go into detail about what exactly that’ll entail, but yeah. Things will just be…different.

***The filming and editing process with our TV Pilot is almost complete. Although the site won’t be active for the next couple of weeks, our Twitter and Facebook pages will still be updated.

***We’re also going to start distributing the gifts promised to those who contributed. Those should be coming in the next few weeks.

***Book #2 is in the works. Won’t give away too much about that yet, but will say that it has, um, something to do with this. 

***If you find yourself missing words written by VSB over the next couple of weeks, you can always find me at Ebony.com and Madame Noire and Panama at Guyspeak

That’s about it, folks. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday experience, and if the world doesn’t end in the next couple of days, we’ll see you all in 2013!
