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.

Par excellence, a great introduction to the Tri-Cities area of Pasco, Kennewick, Richland, WA.  As follows…

It’s Dean. Dean, not Sam.

With Orion, past and future Worldcon tech and sword-swinging fire breather of Ignition.

Puppets from the Toby Froud-directed short, “Lessons Learned”.

With puppeteer, animator, director Toby Froud himself!

There I watched this beautiful trailer (a boat of leaves & petals!):

From Bones of Starlight Facebook, upon receiving 100 Likes:

Many thanks to the readers, supporters, and muses who have been along for the journey, as this story grew from a plotline, to a few website posts, to a book; from two central characters, to a universe full, with a returning history, growing aspirations, and discovery of the unknown.

I look forward to bringing you more of this space fantasy saga, and I hope it captivates you as it has me! May the connections we’ve formed through time and space grow strong. Here’s to the future, and a good start.
