It’s pretty and light, seemingly – the new PDF version of Fire Within! $5 to @Eva-Elasigue-Primal-Spiral on Venmo, or to email@example.com over PayPal to get the ball rolling. I am happy to report that this PDF is also accessible to people who have a World Fantasy Convention virtual pass.
I’m on the pro roster for this year‘s World Fantasy Convention, theoretically of Utah but effectively anywhere – October 29 to November 1. This convention has a great contingent of publishers, authors, and diehards, and I’m happy to be presenting this year. I have a reading, a panel, an autograph in the program, and a book in the bundle! Panel below:
The Art of the Series
Writing a series can be a balancing act that takes place over years to decades. Keeping the characters, themes, and atmosphere consistent over the years can be a difficult trial for those who work in this longest of all forms. Who is particularly good at the art of the series?
Here’s a video of the reading I did for the Poetry Open Mic at the World Fantasy Convention – this ancient-epic style poem is contained in Bones of Starlight 1: Fire Within, performed upon the occasion of the 7-year holiday of Pyrean Midsummer, when four planets of the Pan-Galactic Imperium have aligned solstices.
(I was actually surprise video’d by the illustrious Deborah Beale, who also caught some pictures for me. But, why not? The words as spoken.)
