Anthrocon, More Conventions & The Last Starfighter

Hello, readers.  I have some announcements to make today.

First off, Sunnyville Stories #12 is being processed right now as this goes online.  Once that is put to bed, I expect to continue processing the digital files for Sunnyville Stories Volume 3.

Second, Anthrocon is less than a few weeks away in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  It’s being held July 9-12 this year.  As you know, I have attended this event in years past.  As I now live in the Western United States, it’s not feasible to attend anymore so I will not be there this year.  There will be vendors there who will be selling my work and I will be actively promoting Sunnyville Stories during the event.

Speaking of conventions, I’m remaining on the local convention circuit here in Fargo.  My next events will be AnimeFargo, being held September 18-20, and ValleyCon, held about a month later on October 16-18.  I will be attending there mainly to network and to promote Sunnyville.  I’m strongly debating doing sales on next year’s circuit, but details on that will have to wait until I’ve got better plans.

The last bit of news for today is that I have chosen the epigraph for the third volume of Sunnyville Stories.  After debate, I decided to go with a line from the 1984 movie The Last Starfighter.  The line I chose is where the character of Centauri (Robert Preston) berates Alex Rogan (Lance Guest) on his decision not to be a Starfighter.

Centauri: Alex! Alex! You’re walking away from history! History, Alex! Did Chris Columbus stay home? Nooooo. What if the Wright Brothers thought that only birds should fly? And did Galoka think that the Ulus were too ugly to save?

Alex Rogan: Who’s Galoka?

Centauri: Never mind.


So why did I choose this?  Centauri is essentially throwing down a challenge to Rogan.  I had my doubts about whether or not to turn Sunnyville Stories into a full-blown saga.  Now, I’m working on my third volume in the series of ten planned volumes.

Sunnyville Stories Vol. 1 (ISBN 9780615653921) is still for sale on Amazon. Copies of Sunnyville Stories Volume 2 and Von Herling, Vampire Hunter are for sale right now at Great Stories.
