This past weekend I attended Anime Mid-Atlantic, while our other crew worked at All-Star Comic Con. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by at both shows, and extra thanks to everyone who picked up a copy of the book!
This weekend we’ll be at Too Many Games, which I’m super excited about for a number of reasons. TMG is one of my favorite shows, one of the ones that I get to enjoy more than most. It’s always a great time, especially if you’re into video games and video game music. I’ll be there with Alicia’s Anime – we’ll have a huge booth with not only Feralia: Revised Edition, but a ton of game and anime related stuff. We’re just one stop there in an amazing marketplace and a fun weekend full of awesome music, guests and events.
This will also be our 13th show in 14 weeks before a much needed break! (One which will hopefully be both restful and productive!)
Come out and see me there!
Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to see us at AnimeNEXT! It was awesome talking with you and the response was so great! I hope all of you enjoy the story, and for those of you who are writing, keep at it! I’m looking forward to reading your work as well!
This weekend I’ll be with Alicia’s Anime again for AnimeNEXT! Stop by and see me for a copy of Feralia: Revised Edition and tons of other cool stuff! It’ll be at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Hope to see ya there!
Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by at Animazement! I hope you enjoy the story! It was a nice con and super friendly crowd as usual. Already looking forward to next year!
While a lot of people were bracing for (or even expecting) the worst with the new Star Wars side story, I tried to be as cautiously optimistic as usual. It did have a lot to live up to with featuring such beloved characters. I feel like the movie did those characters justice while putting them along side some really strong new ones, and was just an absolute blast from start to finish. The atmosphere just felt right for a Star Wars movie, helped both by dark locales and great lighting when needed. Composer John Powell’s score was thrilling, incorporating and blending perfectly with some of John William’s classic themes at just enough moments, never feeling overdone in that regard. Fans of The Empire Strikes Back Soundtrack like myself will be excited at the inclusion of a couple nice little surprises as well. The main cast also did an outstanding job – a couple notable highlights for me were Lando’s smooth voice and manner, and how likable I found new character Qi’ra (played by Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke respectively). Woody Harrelson’s performance (Beckett) was solid as usual. I felt like Alden Ehrenreich did a great job filling some really, really big shoes and felt believable as Han Solo while Jonas Suotamo made Chewie as lovable as ever.
If you love Star Wars, even Threepio would give you good odds on this one.
Double Lando smiles of approval!! (Go see it!)
What did you think of Solo: A Star Wars Story?
Next up on our crazy con schedule is Animazement, in Raleigh, North Carolina! Come out and see me at the Alicia’s Anime booth (#409 & 411) to grab a copy of Feralia: Revised Edition and lots of other cool stuff! This is another fun show with a nice crowd and I hope to see ya there!
For some reason spring and early summer weather really gets me inspired to write. Especially today for some reason. Maybe because it rained all last week. Maybe because it’s the first time this spring I’ve had a moment to take it in on a day like today. Whatever the reason, I always feel much more inspired creatively. I did actually get a lot done during the rain last week, but there’s something about the warmth of the sun, the singing of the birds and the feel of the wind that carries me off to another world like nothing else.
To all you writers, artists and creators out there, does the weather seem to affect your creativity? If so, what kind is best for you? Does the warmth warm up your imagination? Does the rain inspire you? (Or make you too sleepy to be productive?) Let me know!
