The U.S.A.’s season of Thanksgiving has arrived, even though this post comes a few days afterward. In fact, I’m writing this on my 47th birthday! It’s a time to reflect on the accomplishments and blessings of the past year. Also, I have news of 2019.
First of all, notice how the Dhea Loral logo includes a cornucopia? It very much resembles an old Thanksgiving table. This represents the world as well. For Dhea Loral has recovered from the dark years of the Godswars and has entered an age of progress and expansion that has brought new bounty to the land. Of course, this becomes rife with danger too, (hence the dagger on the table), but its the symbolism of bounty that applies today.
Thank you to all who have kept up with me on Twitter, Facebook, Gaming+ on Amino, Google+, Minds, Gab.ai, and Bitchute. I’m really grateful for those who took the time to give me those good reviews and high-star ratings on Amazon and Goodreads for my books. Honestly, the reviews and star-ratings can boost me more than the actual money purchasing the book! I’ve also enjoyed many new conventions this past year and met a lot of wonderful artists and writers.
As yet, this is a far cry from replacing my day job. In fact, most years I’m normally in the red. This is still a craft of passion. So, you don’t have to worry about me giving up my stories…I have a lot yet to share! Thank you all, however, for boosting me up in every way that you have.
As far as 2019, its shaping up to be busy. I have a number of appearances lining up. I will return to many, if not all, of the conventions at which I appeared last year. Also, there are some new ones in the works. I’ll make an official announcement listing the known and presumed appearances soon. Note that most are in the Twin Cities, Mn, area and Hudson, Wisconsin. There has been an event in the Dakotas that was highly recommended, so I may be traveling there later in 2019.
While we’re on that subject, if you know of good fantasy or other author events and conventions in the nearby states, it doesn’t hurt to send me a link and recommend them.
Currently, I’m working between a few book projects. My steampunk-styled novella on “Boxer” is in the later stages of editing. “Inheritance of a Sword and a Path” is getting a revision. (It’s the gateway into the world of Dhea Loral but also my first novel, I had to go back and take another look at it because I know I can make it better.) Also, “Pilgrims with Blades” has a sequel partially written.
I appreciate all of you, my fans! If you’re reading this, you’re supporting me and I’m glad to entertain you.
