Oi-yoi, it’s that time again. Yep. The, what is up with me now, post. Sorry, but not really. Why? Because good things are just around the bend. And, yeah, I want to share them with you. Can you blame me? Have you talked to yourselves lately?
You all are awesome.
So, first, yeah. Thank you all for being here, reading this, and supporting me. It matters.
What’s the good news you ask?
Well, where do I begin?
How about here:
1 month from today, I go out to DragonCon. Not just my first time there, but as a guest panelist–long time dream of mine. That’s right. The author career dreams are happening. I’ll be on panels, hopefully loads of writing related ones with my heroes. Hey, a guy can dream, right?
But, this has been a forever wish of mine. To attend this con, this exact one, DragonCon. To be there as a pro, a writing dude who makes words people love. To have fans attend (that’s happening) and to be among my heroes maybe as their peer. I’ve literally had daydreams about this.
I’m confirmed to be signing and selling at The Bard’s Tower among the likes of Jim Butcher, Larry Correia, Kevin J. Anderson, and so many more industry superstars who have earned their careers a dozen times over and been kind enough to help me along the way as well.
What more can a growing writer want?
I might very well have other opportunities to grow and achieve things there. Nothing is set, but I’m hearing good word come back to me.
So, yeah, I’ve got a great feeling about this and am exceptionally excited. I know to many of you, it’s like, oh, sure, DragonCon, fun place and been there a lot.
To me, it’s a sign of dreams come true. And that means, well, maybe more are on their way to happen. And you know what, that’s awesome. I’m at that point where I’d really love to have something happen to help me break through.
Who doesn’t, right?
But, heck, what’s the shame in asking for it and being honest about it?
Yeah, this is a dream, and I want great things to happen there for me and every other artist/author coming out to make a nice dent in their career. But most of all, I want to have fun, a time to remember. Because, regardless, this is one of my dreams. And, it’s already laid down. 🙂
So, no matter what, I get to enjoy it, rock it, and remember it forever.
And ooh boy, I cannot wait.
What else is up?
Well, I’m about two-thirds, maybe more, ways about done with my space western going to a small U.K. publisher upon completion. So, that’s pretty awesome.
I’m working on a cool loyalty reward for all my fans. You’ll see and hear more about that when I’m good and ready. Most likely, when I’m done.
And, because many of you voted on this in my fan club, (I’ll drop a link below) I’ll be working on the second novel in The Books of Winter next. You all asked for it. You’re getting it, cool!?
Nifty stuff, right?
Thanks again all. You’re the best blessing an author can have. Thanks for the support and more!
