Video of Me Reading at WordBrew 6

On Oct 28th, 2018, I was invited to read a sample at my first Wordbrew event. The occasion was sponsored by the Minnesota Speculative Writer’s Group, (Minnspec), as well as a few local bookstores and coffee shops, and hosted at Kieran’s Pub. I’ll include a link to the Wordbrew 6 “Lookbook”, which details the event and introduces the authors who appeared along with me. Wordbrew_6_Lookbook I...

Sad Tale: Telltale Games has Closed

Telltale Games, we knew you for too short a time.   Last year fans were worried when Telltale Games showed signs of financial trouble, dropping about a quarter of its workforce. Now, a great band of storytellers has disbanded except the few core employees cleaning up the aftermath. A company whose website mentions “53 dogs visit our office each month” and greeted employees with “you...

When you feel bad about a spelling error…

It happens. I can write and rewrite, go through a dozen editing passes, and somehow or another….a spelling error still makes it through into the book! Now, no one is immune. Even my favorite authors, guys with big names in the business, have had a misspelled word slip through. You wouldn’t believe the number of word oopsies that have already occurred typing this post, but I keep going back...

Laptop Crash, Affecting Streaming

I haven’t streamed in a week or two, and there is a reason why. When I stream, I play the game and operate Open Broadcaster on my PC screen. I watch live chat from Twitch and Youtube on my laptop. Since this arrangement, however, there have been times when my laptop randomly reboots itself. It’s a known bug of Windows 10, and only seems to happen when my laptop is watching videos. By the...

Kingdom Come: Deliverance releases tomorrow! (And I’ll be playing it!)

As I write this, I am merely twelve hours away from the release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Although, that is slightly misleading. I’ll be heading to work when it goes live. (ARGH!) I will play tomorrow night and post episodes ASAP afterward. I’ll be posting my Let’s Play of Kingdom Come: Deliverance on my YouTube channel. I’ve been watching the progress of this indy title...

Video Game Streams Update (Jan 2018)

Just a quick update on my near-future video game streams. I usually broadcast on weekends, starting anywhere between 9:30-10pm CST and running until around midnight. The schedule is a little loose due to family life. I also may do streams during the daytime on weekdays, or late nights during the week. That’s more of a spur of the moment thing due to work hours and house responsibilities.   YouTube:...

Dramatic Reading of “The Widow Brigade” on YouTube

I have a new treat for my book fans today. I have been trying to expand my YouTube to assist with my writing habit, and not just use it for streaming needs. I uploaded a dramatic reading of my highest rated fantasy novel, “The Widow Brigade”.   This was certainly a first-time attempt to do anything like this. I’m shy enough that I have a hard enough time doing readings in person…doing...

Author Initiative show with me on Geekside Network Earning Views

A video I helped produce on Geekside Network has been channeling in the views. Zoe and myself talked about character creation, and discussed a character of his in the making during the show. We cover the many steps and considerations undertaken when designing a character for a book. Although I tend to focus fantasy, and he treads between fantasy and science fiction, these techniques could apply to...

Expanding my Streaming and Game Videos

My YouTube and Twitch channels are off the ground and running… As some may have already noticed, I’ve earnestly begun adding live streams and pre-recorded gaming videos to my channels. You Tube is by far the better resource…everything is on there! But I also broadcast to Twitch for those that favor watching videos through them. Links below. YouTube: “Thamin DheaLoral” https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAG7agS5wDl1GBD973yQCew Twitch:...
