There’s a lot going on!
When I sat down to write this update, I couldn’t figure out which direction to begin. So how about all of them?
Rhest of the Time (Rhest for the Wicked 2) is nearing completion. The manuscript is going through the last few edits and will be going to a copyeditor at the end of the week. Assuming that goes well, it will be off to the presses shortly thereafter. I don’t have a release date yet, but I expect before the summer. Maybe even sooner? Continue reading “Quick Update”
So, just a few quick updates before MAGFest this weekend.
First, if you didn’t know, the Guidebook is up and available for download. MAGFest doesn’t have the traditional handbook, but the guide is hella useful. Continue reading “MAGFest Update”
As you may know, I will be at Escape Velocity at the end of the month, principally to help celebrate the release of LG Ransom’s new book, Legend of Hollin. This week’s post is going to be a bit short because A) last week was Infinity War and one must have one’s priorities straight, B) work is crazy, and C) Escape Velocity is proving to be quite the new breed of show.
I’ve been doing cons for quite a while now and they all are a little bit different. Each con has its own unique characteristics, quirks, and what-have-you.

RavenCon concluded. It was an incredibly chaotic weekend, with ups and downs. While the weekend didn’t go even close to how I think anyone imagined it, I will say unequivocally, it was a net-positive experience. The Geek Debates were an especial highlight but the con as a whole was a damn-fine weekend. Definitely a con to keep tabs on and attend if you ever get the chance.
For me, it was a bit of a home-coming. I got to see some dear friends I haven’t seen in ages, and also the chance to simply be at a literary convention. Literary cons are quite different from anime/comic book/video game conventions that have been my world of late. Not only do the attendees tend to skew a bit older, but they also tend to skew a bit more rowdy. Sure, tweens at an anime con might take over a hallway just lounging around but forty-somethings at a literary con are going to have a sing-a-long. You haven’t lived until you’ve been present for a hallway full of librarians and professors singing Never Gonna Give You Up in the original Sindarin. But I digress.
