Last Video Reading for a While

This is the third reading from The Daedalus Enigma. I probably won’t be doing another reading video until after the publication of Maelstrom of Fate in October. I’d thought about doing readings from The Dungeon section of Readers’ Refuge, but those would be age-restricted videos due to some of the subject matter. They may still happen, but not at this time.

Here, for your viewing and listening pleasure is The Bathing of Sniff.

Personal Schedule for LibertyCon 30

If you have tickets to attend LibertyCon this year, I look forward to seeing you there; if not, unfortunately the convention is already sold out. LC limits attendance to 750 people in order to maintain the small con family vibe. Tickets for LibertyCon 31 should go on sale on their website Sunday, July 2nd. I would advise booking early; memberships CAN be carried over to the next year if you are unable to attend by the time of the convention.

New Video Reading and Art Update

I finally got started on the cover art for Maelstrom of Fate this afternoon. So far, I have the background done. It has to dry fully before I start on the other images. I’m going with acrylic on canvas board again.

Granted, this part went quickly. I kept the brush rather wet to blend the four pigments used. I was trying to give the effect of a whirlpool. As you can see, I used masking tape and paper to ensure a clean border around the painting.

Here is the second video reading from The Daedalus Enigma.

 

 

Video Reading from The Daedalus Enigma

Yet another busy weekend; not so much on the writing and book production front, but productive nonetheless. We replaced the carpet in the cats’ room with vinyl tile: easier to clean. (Cricket-of-Boundless-Energy has earned the nickname “Spootz”.)

The only progress I’ve made on the cover art for Maelstrom of Fate has been to mask off the borders on the canvas board I have for the painting.

The only other accomplishments this weekend have been to record and edit this week’s video reading and to complete a hidden object game and bonus game I started last weekend.

Without further ado, here is this week’s reading selection: the Once Upon a Tide… from The Daedalus Enigma, Sirens at War.
