LTUE 2018 Report

Posted by Rampant Coyote on February 20, 2018

Okay, it’s been a little crazy ’round these parts. Mostly crazy in a good way. That’s my introduction and apology for being slow on the blogging front.

Of course, the novel is moving forward. The Advance Reader Copies have gone out, and we’re releasing Blood Creek Witch on March 13th. I’ll have a couple of launch events thereafter.

The day job is awesome, but it’s taking a lot out of me. While the stuff I’m working on is not strictly VR-related, the VR side of things is heating up. I love it, but it does mean I end up spending long hours in the office. It’s definitely cool stuff.

I did get to take a couple of days off and go to Life, the Universe, and Everything 2018. I got to be a panelist on a couple of panels – one focused on Virtual Reality – and a moderator for another. Fun stuff. As an attendee, I hit as many subject-matter panels as I did professional writing / game development panels. The panels discussed topics like powered armor, the history and development of combat aircraft, and what makes a space ship spaceworthy. Some were more down-to-earth like how black and gray markets develop. While there wasn’t much new information, I thoroughly enjoyed a class on the Ultima, Wizardry, and Might & Magic game series.

I got to meet authors Sarah Hoyt and Todd McCaffrey on a panel I moderated, which was kind of awesome.  I also made and renewed quite a few connections locally. I received lots of reminders of what I should be doing. Sometimes we need that. I also picked up a few old classic books and some new ones by new authors.

Anyway – it was exhausting, but good. Lots of fun.
