Creative Commons Global Summit 2019 Lisbon

I am deeply thrilled to announce that I am going to be a speaker at the 2019 Creative Commons Global Summit in Lisbon, Portugal! Thanks to their scholarship program, I’ll be able to attend and contribute along with other pioneers in many disciplines relating to open creative rights. There’s a revolutionary variety of ideas and resources, developing with custom strategies made possible with the legal innovation of Creative Commons licenses.


We’re going to work on developing my contribution to the program. This will begin on a foundation of my multi-platform CC-enabled release strategy as a fiction author, and extend to other projects I’m related to which are leveraging Creative Commons in their own niche, providing a network-local snapshot of how usage is developing within the current wave of rights holders and new manifestations of media. Let me know what you would like me to bring to the discussion! Your unique experiences related to CC (however seemingly minor), even ideas or simple feedback. I know a growing group of broadcast platform users, large-project participants, and alien-ouvre standard bearers. You can inform how we craft this information into presentation for a wider global community. Even follow the image link and join us in Portugal!

Thank you all, and I accept the pleasure of this work for discussions on creative opportunity development.

ACE AZ Recap

I’m grateful for a really amazing time in Glendale, AZ with the recent ACE Comic Con! To every last book that found a new home, I hope it’s a happy one. Whatever you thought, do send/post your official review. I love the responses I’ve gotten during the convention – like nothing they’ve ever read, in scope as well as otherwise, poetic yet succinct. I’m glad Bones of Starlight is finding people who want something that is exactly this!

I chose the following cosplay characters as clue-ins to pose with the latest book…

And these ‘characters’ (a way of referring to actual people, which the following are!) got their own copies, along with the others:

Thanks to the great crew, the cool venue, the amazing guests, and the wonderful audience. Sunrise on the saguaro & music in the heart of Phoenix! Star-studded weather with a rain dance.

Ace Comic Con Arizona

It’s ACE Comic Con weekend in Glendale/Phoenix, Arizona! The Gila River Arena is a unique sort of place to transform into a convention, and I’m feeling the power of pop star performances like The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Madonna & Justin Timberlake. Yes… we certainly have something in common.

Here I am again! But in a new place.


Awards Eligibility Post 2018

[Novel, Debut] The first volume of the fantasy space opera trilogy Bones of Starlight: Fire Within, was re-issued in August 2018 with a new title and some adjusted linguistic details, including certain character pronouns. The course of the story remains intact from its 2016 release as Fire On All Sides. I’m unsure of this edition’s eligibility for the year, but if so, then so may it be. In all its iterations, I’ve been glad to receive reactions of enjoyment by various readers of respected opinion! By Eva L.
