Furry Weekend Atlanta 2018

I’ll be attending Furry Weekend Atlanta (FWA) this weekend. FWA was the first con I ever got to attend, so it’s been existing to watch how it’s grown from a small event out by the airport to being a much bigger con. The changes have really been existing to see.

FWA continues to develop a better writing track at the hands of JelliQal. As part of that, I’m doing some panels at the con.

All writing panels will be in Panels Dock 7. I hope to see you in Atlanta.

TFF 2018 And a Story Reprint

Hey, it’s con time again, and I’ll be at TFF this weekend for the first time ever. As part of that, I’ll be doing some writing panels.

  • Fantasy Story Writing – Friday, February 9 • 4:00pm – 5:00pm
  • Scene & World Building – Friday, February 9 • 7:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Writing 201 – Saturday, February 10 • 4:00pm – 5:00pm
  • Publisher Q&A – Sunday, February 11 • 1:00pm – 2:00pm

I’m really looking forward to this trip as I’ve never been to Texas before. Dystopia editing has been humming along, so it’s a nice break. Also, I’m happy to announce, I’ve got a reprint that came out last month. “The Harvest Moon Ceremony” is out again in SPECIES: Foxes by Thurston Howl Publications.

Dogs of War 2 and Midwest FurFest 2017

I’m excited to announce that my fifth story of the year will be released this weekend at Midwest FurFest. Not only that, I’m attending the con this year! This piece, “The Son of Goulon Stumptail,” will be appearing at in Dogs of War Volume 2: Aftermath, and is the first story set in a much larger world I’ve been working on. The book will be available at the con and can also be pre-ordered online with FurPlanet.

Not only will I be at the con, I’ll be doing some panels. Friday I’ll be on the Writing 101 panel at 11:30am, and the Scene and Story Structure panel at 6:30pm. Immediately after the second panel there will be the RAWR panel, and they’ve asked me to sit on that share my experiences. Finally, on Saturday I’ll be on the Editing and Revising panel at 4:00pm. The rest of the time, I’ll be hanging around and helping out with the Rysingson Accessories table. I’m looking forward to this quick getaway, so if you are in Chicago, I’ll see you there!

Podcast Round Up and New Story Online

I’ve been on a few podcasts lately talking about writing I wanted to share. These are all group events, so I’m just a panelist. While it’s a lot of material, I think they’re worth giving a listen to if you have the time. They also have a number of other talented writers in the fandom on these.

Ocean recorded two podcasts at the RAWR Year 2 retreat for Fangs And Fonts. The first installment was recording the night before the event after we arrived. The second installment is a follow up we recorded after we finished all our critiques. Both podcast give you a good rundown of what RAWR is like. The other podcast I appear on was a podcast recorded for Independent Claws after Anthrocon title “Excrement Writers Articulate” where a bunch of writers talk shop post con Sunday night.

I’ve also posted “The Road to Midnight” one of the two stories of mine that appeared last year in FANG Volume 7 and is offered here with art provided by the wonderfully talented Simul. This is an erotic story, so please be an adult if you want to read it. The piece has become strangely relevant recently since it’s set in the nuclear age and I wanted to share it.

Mageplex 2017

I’ll be attending Megaplex this weekend. For this con, I’m only be doing two panels. The first is Erotic Storytelling Friday night at 10:00 pm in Panel 4. The second is Improving Your Fiction Sunday at 1:00 pm in Panel 3. Besides that, I’ll just be around the con. Megaplex is more of a relaxing con for me, so this is going to be a much-needed break.

Anyway, see you in Orlando!
