(I was so excited about next year that I forgot what year it was... yeah, I blame lack of coffee) So not entirely about Factorycon, but hey -- I'm gonna talk about it! See? First line and I'm already knee-deep in shenanigans. Factorycon 2023 actually started off early for us. Canadian co-author extraordinaire Jamie Ibson … Continue reading Factorycon 2022 AAR — Shenanigans Aplenty
A Wild Time in the Old Town This Month(ish)
...or something. I don't know. Wild for me now would have been mild for twenty-something Jason. That guy's a jerk, with all that energy and no bad back or neck. However, there is some exciting news, so I've got that going for me. Twenty-something Jason was an aimless shifter. First, the very first anthology I've … Continue reading A Wild Time in the Old Town This Month(ish)

Hard vs Soft Rejection (and why the difference matters)
Getting a rejection letter is hard. Quite frankly, it's one of the worst feelings a writer will go through in their career. That feeling of utter failure, the emotional kick to the stomach that your baby just isn't good enough. The anguish and despair upon reading "Dear [[insert name here]], we regret to inform you..." … Continue reading Hard vs Soft Rejection (and why the difference matters)
The Month That Was Too Long
So the last few weeks have been.... really odd. We lost Eric Flint on July 17, which was a rude shock to us all. He'd just called the office the week before to talk (Eric was one of the few authors who regularly called the office) and he'd been looking forward to going home and … Continue reading The Month That Was Too Long
Cat Magic: The Game Review
I have found the next amazing party game for nerds! I've been hearing a lot about this game for the past year or so, primarily because I know the game's creators, Lydia and David Sherrer. The game, which was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter, is one of the fun, fast-paced games that you can do in … Continue reading Cat Magic: The Game Review

They don't have a massive programming schedule uploaded yet, but the schedules for individual authors is ready to go. As usual, I'm going to be pretty busy this Libertycon -- and I wouldn't have it any other way. That blurred out section? Don't worry about that section. 😀 I'll be out and about the entire … Continue reading Libertycon 34 Schedule
Cover Reveal — Chicks in Tank Tops
Okay, not going to lie... this is my first cover as an editor. I'm super stoked! **edit-- this version has less red in it. Something happened during the upload that super saturated reds. Very weird. In the vein of the classic CHICKS IN CHAINMAIL series comes CHICKS IN TANK TOPS. 14 stories from such luminaries … Continue reading Cover Reveal — Chicks in Tank Tops
