An advanced note to let you know I’m confirmed as an Artist Alley exhibitor for ACE Comic Con Seattle 2019! This traveling celebrity convention has welcomed me to exhibit in the Chicago & Phoenix areas, and I’m happy to join them as they return to my locality of Seattle, where I first checked them out last summer.
My moment at the top of the creator’s list, by the excellent interview host of the AZ celebrity panels.
And of course, the supporting talent (actually, in a significant way they are supporting the lesser-known exhibitors with their big names and audience draw while people make the most of their day tickets by exploring the entire hall):
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…
Guardians of the Galaxy!
Data of Star Trek!
And these ‘characters’ (a way of referring to actual people, which the following are!) got their own copies, along with the others:
cosplayer Rose Anderson, actor Tom Hiddleston, author Eva L. Elasigue
actor Charlie Cox & author Eva L. Elasigue
Eva & Jamie, mechanic 1/2 of Charlie the (Supernatural)Impala
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.

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.
I’ve got the cover for Abyss Surrounding, and it’s as gorgeous as the first. Available through retail bookstores worldwide on 11/11:
Also, you can join me and actors Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Cox, Michael Fassbender, Simpsons character creator Phil Ortiz, and so many other great entertainers at ACE Comic Con in Glendale AZ, January 11-13! I’ll have a table again, and books. Tickets are on sale now with autographs and photo ops already selling out!
This past weekend I met with two excellent fellows in entertainment who each received copies of Bones of Starlight 1 – actor Tom Hiddleston, and director Kevin Smith! A genuine pleasure. With Tom, I’m wearing my author photo jacket (my ‘trail blazer’). I came to see Kevin in my borrowed Locus Awards hawaiian shirt, which is also where the flower lei came from. In the space where he’s holding his arm out, that’s where you can imagine YOURSELF in the picture.
The Locus Awards was a splendid and jolly affair, and was also the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Locus Magazine, a stalwart of science fiction & fantasy critical review.
Out and about in Seattle, I discovered an artwork location of Bones of Starlight cover artist Leo Shallat, and came out (again, as poly-pan-sexual) to celebrate with the Pride Parade.
