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!
Thanks to all you awesome folks who stopped by to see us this weekend! I hope readers new to Feralia enjoy the story! We had a great time and are looking forward to next year!
This weekend I’ll be at Tidewater Comicon in Virginia Beach, VA. This will be my third year there with Alicia’s Anime. Stop by and see us at booth 702/703! We’ll have signed copies of Feralia: Revised Edition as well as the usual bookmarks and buttons! Tidewater always has cool stuff going on and a really nice crowd, so definitely check it out if you’re able!
As we wait for the last few things for the release of Feralia: Requiem of Mist, the second Feralia story, I’ve been hard at work on my third book. I’m not ready to announce the title or any story info yet, but my current goal is to have it released no later than a year after Requiem of Mist. I’m currently writing chapter 10.
As always, thanks so much for your patience and for sticking with me!
Sorry for the lack of updates here! My convention schedule has had me at or preparing for cons more often than not. Since my last update I’ve attended/worked at Tekko, Sakura Matsuri, Sakura Sunday, The Great Philadelphia Comic Con (while the rest of our crew was at Wicomicon) and finally, this past weekend, Zenkaikon.
First off, thank you to everyone who stopped by to see us! I hope that everyone who picked up a copy of Feralia: Revised Edition enjoys reading it! Also thanks to all the staff at these shows who helped us out!
So this weekend (Tidewater Comic Con) will be 9 shows in 8 weeks, about half way through a span of 14 shows in 14 weeks!
While it’s crazy, it’s awesome to get to see friends and meet cool people including fellow writers and artists! Once things slow down for me I plan on featuring more of these awesome people here on the blog.
Surprisingly I’ve also been able to get some writing done fairly regularly as well. (I’ll save that for the next update.)
Remember to check out our con schedule here – I hope to see ya at an event near you!
Awesome Con was a lot of fun, especially because of all of the Star Wars exhibits and guests. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! I hope all you new readers enjoy the story!
Next up on our crazy-busy schedule is Tekko, in Pittsburgh, PA. At Alicia’s Anime we always look forward to this show because not only is it located close to where I grew up (so I always get to see a bunch of family and friends), but it’s also the first show we attended as Alicia’s Anime, back in 2005! There’s always a ton of fun stuff to do, featuring anime, gaming, music, fashion and pop culture! Stop by and see me at our booth there this weekend!
Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by at Ring of Fire Con! Next up (this weekend) is Awesome Con in Washington, DC! Stop by and see us at the Alicia’s Anime booth – we’re at booth # 1037. (Just look for the 1000 aisle banner hanging from the ceiling of the exhibit hall. Hope to see you there!
