Introducing A Greater Duty, Part 1: How We Got Here

There is still some time before the release of my debut novel, A Greater Duty, but it shouldn’t be too long now. Thus, I believe the time is right to begin introducing this story, the product of over a decade of (on and off) work, to all of you. As I stated above, the initialContinue reading “Introducing A Greater Duty, Part 1: How We Got Here”

JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 3)

On to day three, the last day of JordanCon. ūüė¶ 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¬†next year” if I didn’t feel that it was worthwhile–thoughContinue reading “JordanCon 2014 Recap (Part 1)”

JordanCon 2013: Final Thoughts, and Why You Should Go (for real this time)

Now that I’ve completed my JordanCon recap, it’s time to get to what is¬†arguably¬†more important: Why I’ve chosen to attend JordanCon for the last three years, and why you should as well. As I’m a writer, with a plan to get published and make writing my full-time career, and as such I will focus moreContinue reading “JordanCon 2013: Final Thoughts, and Why You Should Go (for real this time)”

JordanCon 2013 Recap: Why You Should Come Next Year (Part 3)

(An addendum to the last post: Due to the fact that I was in the game room playing Magic all Saturday night, I neglected to mention the ‘con’s actual main even that night. ¬†It’s worth mentioning even though I wasn’t at it. Said main event was a dance party in the main area, which lastedContinue reading “JordanCon 2013 Recap: Why You Should Come Next Year (Part 3)”

JordanCon 2013 Recap: Why You Should Come Next Year (Part 2)

And continuing where I left off, day 2 of JordanCon 5! A pre-arranged hotel wake-up call woke us up at about 9:30, but,¬†unsurprisingly, we moved slowly. By the time we got up and took care of all the morning’s religious obligations, eat, breakfast, and prepared lunches (since returning to the room at any point middayContinue reading “JordanCon 2013 Recap: Why You Should Come Next Year (Part 2)”
