Post-Convention Thoughts & Takeaways, Part 2 (Or are we at 3 now?)

I don’t recall offhand if I made a post like this after my second convention, but I know I’ve done this once before, and now, after my 3rd convention, I have some more thoughts & observations to share. The convention, Icon, here in Israel, took place about 2 weeks ago now. It was my biggestContinue reading “Post-Convention Thoughts & Takeaways, Part 2 (Or are we at 3 now?)”

The Disappointment of the Shield Hero

I’m sure I’m not alone in remembering when the Rising of the Shield Hero anime took the world by storm a couple years ago. That was shortly after I got back into anime, and shows in the fantasy genre (isekai or otherwise) made up the bulk of what I was watching at the time. SoContinue reading “The Disappointment of the Shield Hero”

Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10: Live Now on Kickstarter!

It’s finally time! I’m excited to finally announce the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10!

Coming to Kickstarter: Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10

The adventureContinue reading “Coming to Kickstarter: Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10”

My First Convention as a Seller: A Retrospective

So as some of you might have seen, I did something new a couple weeks ago. I went to a convention (Harucon in Jerusalem) as a book seller, selling my own books of course. It was a great experience, and I look forward to doing so again. (As of writing this, I’m signed up forContinue reading “My First Convention as a Seller: A Retrospective”

A Tale of Plagiarism on Amazon

So a couple weeks ago, I did something I do every couple months over on Amazon, and searched “Miklos Horthy” in books. The reason I do this is partially for ego reasons (as some of you may know, I’ve published my Master’s thesis on Miklos Horthy, and, as one of the only in-print English booksContinue reading “A Tale of Plagiarism on Amazon”

A Look Back at 2021, and at What’s to Come in 2022

So I planned to write a 2021 retrospective, but suddenly it’s already almost the end of January, so going to combine that with my plans for this year. 2021 was my best writing year to date in many respects. There’s still a long way to go to get things exactly where I want, and 2022Continue reading “A Look Back at 2021, and at What’s to Come in 2022”
