Looking forward to going this year, even if as Safety cochair is going to be mainly a working convention for me. Didn't even volunteer for any panels since I have to make sure I'm available for duty for safety in case we don't have enough volunteers. Really looking forward to getting lots of hugs in with many people I only get to see here once a year if I'm lucky.

May 29, 2015 ~ another orphan novel after the closing of PD Publishing, my shape shifter novel Worlds Collide is now officially contracted through Regal Crest Enterprises for a tentative release date of October 2016. For a lot of people this will be the first chance they had to read the novel since it went out of print shortly after it was originally released. I find this very exciting.

 

May 22-25, 2015 ~ Will be at Wiscon 39 this weekend. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this Madison convention I highly recommend it. This started out as a feminist science fiction and fantasy literary convention, but in the nearly four decades it’s been running Wiscon has become so much more. Conversations on issues around racism, homophobia, ableism, and many other subjects around social justice and social advocacy are commonplace at the convention, not only as they relate to literary and media fan culture, but activism as a whole. This year I have joined the safety team as a co-chair because I am determined do my part to make sure the convention is truly a safe haven to have these important conversations.


May 17, 2015 ~ as of today it’s over. The journey that started in fall of 2009 has ended in success. There’ve been many challenges I had to overcome, hurdles faced, but I’m officially graduating with a BFA in technical production within the Peck School the Arts at UW-Milwaukee. Weeks from now my diploma will hang on my wall, proof that you’re never too old to make a new start. I had to let a lot of things slide while I did the work it took to get to the professional track to get my degree, and now that it’s complete I feel a mix of pride for making it this far and trepidation of where I go now. I’ve decided to take a short break over the summer to catch up on things that went undone while I was in school, which is including finishing the sequel to Natural Order. Putting aside my writing was probably one of the hardest things to do to complete school outside giving up spending as much time with my kids I would’ve liked. I’m hoping the future even as I find a job within the theater industry, I will be able to make more time with my kids and more time to do what I love for myself, my writing. There are so many stories in my head and on my computer that are still untold. I can’t wait to share them.


January 29, 2015 ~ It’s official. The never before published sequel to Ancestral Magic, titled Shadow Magic, is contracted by Regal Crest Enterprises for a tentative publishing date of April 2016. The exciting part of this is for those reading Ancestral Magic for the first time, they’ll be able to get the sequel to the novel only a few months after the first book is released.


December 12, 2014
~ formally published by PD Publishing before their doors closed, Ancestral Magic has now been officially contracted for a tentative release date of January 2016 by Regal Crest Enterprises. What I find most thrilling about this is for the first time the novel will be available in e-book formats. The reason this is so very important is that one of the main characters is blind, yet without the novel being available in e-book formats it made it very difficult for those with sight challenges to get to read the story. It’s important to me for all my stories be as accessible as possible to my readers, but for this story in particular accessibility was a crucial concern for me.


October 4th, 2014 ~ after being out of print for quite a stretch because of PD Publishing closing its doors, Natural Order is officially on contract with Regal Crest Enterprises for a tentative release date of October 2015.
