Background on the Bodacious Creed Poker Deck

I love cards, from playing cards, to Tarot cards, to collectible card game cards. Back in 2007, I was working on a Tarot deck and wanted to sell copies. Back then, while print on demand was available for books, it wasn’t for cards, so I would have had to order box loads and try to sell them. So, check out what I made, the Bodacious Creed Poker Deck!

Printing has caught up though, and print on demand decks are a thing!

I’m currently running an Indiegogo campaign for my next novel, Bodacious Creed and the Frisco Syndicate, to help pay for the editing and cover art, those expenses that we indie authors pay out of pocket to ensure our books are the highest quality. One of the rewards is a deck of custom cards for the novel, and I’ll sign the package for each reward deck.

(Update for July 8, 2020: The sequel is now titled Bodacious Creed and the Jade Lake, and the third book will be Bodacious Creed and the Frisco Syndicate.)

Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western – Poker & Faro Deck

I also decided to create a deck for the first book in the series, Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western, and had fun doing it. I designed each card from scratch, using images of the major characters that I created for the crowdfunding campaign.

These are now available in my shop at MAKEPLAYINGCARDS.COM (MPC). If you’re a fan of the novel and want some swag, or you love collecting playing cards like I do, you can now purchase a deck or two! You can also order them if you’re a retailer and want to sell them, since the more you buy, the less you pay.

Of course, if you like designing cards, too, I recommend using this site. I’ve ordered cards from them before and am really happy with their quality and reasonable prices.

Here’s a preview of every card in the deck:

That’s it for today. I’ll have more fun posts coming soon. If you’d like to know when I post new and helpful articles, subscribe below.
