A Call for Beta Readers for The Scarred Princess

Time to add something else to the growing list of new things I’m doing this year. I’ve asked publicly for beta readers before, but it was always either in relevant Facebook groups I was a part of or generally on my Facebook page, not here on this site. However, there are hopefully people that readContinue reading “A Call for Beta Readers for The Scarred Princess”

Writing Talk: Interplanetary Civilizations (Case Study: The Galactic Alliance) Part 2

In Part 1 of this short series of posts, I talked about the first part of Planetary Defense Command’s series of posts about galactic empires, or interplanetary civilizations in general, where he went into actual science to look at how densely populated a galaxy would theoretically be, and some of the ramifications of this, andContinue reading “Writing Talk: Interplanetary Civilizations (Case Study: The Galactic Alliance) Part 2”

Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)

So, I was seeing lots of people writing 2016 wrap-up posts, so I figured I should do the same, even if it is a bit late. (And, also, this allows me to get something new up here while I keep working on a pair of longer posts that are taking longer than expected.) So, 2016,Continue reading “Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)”

Personal Musings: New Paths

So, once again, I have been unable to regularly get posts up here, this time in large part to a pair of major changes in my life and career trajectory, which I touched upon a couple months back in one of my last posts on here. First, as mentioned there, I moved country, from theContinue reading “Personal Musings: New Paths”

JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 3)

On to day three, the last day of JordanCon. ­čśŽ I let myself sleep a little bit late again, because I really needed it, and between that and packing (checkout was at noon), I didn’t make it down until around 11:30. Seeing as that was in the middle of a panel block, and there wasn’tContinue reading “JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 3)”

JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 2)

On to day 2! (Otherwise known as the longest day of the con.) I managed to get about 5 hours sleep, and after eating made it down sometime around 11. I actually can’t recall if I made it to the first writing panel of the day, but I definitely made it to the second, whichContinue reading “JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 2)”

JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 1)

Two weekends ago I attended JordanCon 7, also known as Con of the Red Hand. This was my fifth consecutive time attending, and over time it’s become only more enjoyable, as evidenced by the fact that I got the least sleep at the con this year compared to the last 4 years, and the dayContinue reading “JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 1)”

JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 3)

Day 3…the last day of the con. I successfully dragged myself out of my room in time for the Team Jordan signing at 10am. I noticed that there ended up being a very short line; probably a product of being first thing in the morning after an evening where people had been drinking. So forContinue reading “JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 3)”

JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 2)

On to day 2. (Also here I’d like to thank the creators of the JordanCon app, which makes looking back at the panel details much easier, in addition to being useful during the convention.) Surprisingly, I got downstairs relatively on time on the Saturday of the convention this year; not having to wait long toContinue reading “JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 2)”

JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 1)

This past weekend (at least as of when I started writing this post) I attended JordanCon 6 (also known as Asha’Con). This was my fourth time attending, and it really has become a yearly highlight. I wouldn’t have subtitled last year’s recap “Why you should come┬ánext year” if I didn’t feel that it was worthwhile–thoughContinue reading “JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 1)”
