MAGFest 2018

We’re sixteen days away from MAGFest 2018.

Time sure does fly.

This year, MAGFest returns to National Harbor for an event that transcends description: part music festival, part convention, part fan experience, part industry meet-and-greet, and part…family reunion.  MAGFest remains the cornerstone of my year, professionally and personally.  In 2002, after publishing my first book – Crossworld – I netted an invitation to a tiny start-up convention called the Mid-Atlantic Gaming Festival.  It was my first convention.

In 2018, I will return to MAGFest to promote my newest books: RocKaiju and Proton. Continue reading

Status Update

With Irma battering the United States, from Puerto Rico to Tennessee, I found it difficult to find much to write about it.  It’s kind of hard to discuss the nuances of character development or neat exercise tidbits I’ve been exploring when some people are struggling with life and livelihood.  Still, I wanted to write something, so I thought a quick project update might be in order.

So guess what do ya’ll think?

Over the weekend, my friend Matthew ‘MaHoneyBadger’ Mahoney helped me overhaul my site.  What was meant to be just a quick ‘how badly did I mess this up’ review turned into some major reworking.  I cannot thank Mahoney enough for his help and I encourage anyone who knows him to shower him with praise.  Or praise him for showering because the dude’s training to win American Ninja Warrior.

I’ll continue to whittle away at the site, fixing formatting problems and working on the various linking issues.  All of this is building up to, or at least towards, bringing serials back to the site.  That decision has yet to be fully made but I want the reasons to not do it to be personal/professional and not technical.

So yeah.  🙂

Towards The Future

2017 is on the horizon, so I thought I’d talk a little about what I’ve got planned for it. I’m not one for New Years’ Resolutions so much as a set of projects and goals I will attempt to get completed. Typically I manage to get at least half the list done, so anybody want to start a pool on which projects actually make it? Here we go:
