If you are reading this, then I'm at Tampa Indie Author Book Convention! This is the first convention that I've done in over a year and I AM STOKED! Since I'm knees deep in my inventory, I am also fulfilling online orders while at the show. Check out my wares at http://shop.dragonmun.com! Orders will go out in the mail on Monday. :)
Today is also the day that the Auset Gypsy tarot deck - that illustrated the minor arcana for - comes out! For more information on that, check out here. That's not the only collaboration I've participated in to release around now. Too Late to Pray, by T. W. Lofgren (which I illustrated the cover for) was released and can be found here, and Sivoa got a tea set!
Since the last email, I was contacted by my friend, Captain.Dee on TikTok, about making a fandom set of teas inspired by Sivoa… and so we did! Y'all, they're so good! Descriptions and blends can be found at Adagio Teas!
Cat tax… because the kitten at the condo I'm staying the night at is adorable:

Aside from the fun I make for myself, I have nothing. Maybe I'll have Jesse DM something for my crew on Roll 20.
In a desert kingdom, a sixteen year old girl is determined to escape a vile sorcerer, but is challenged by the maneuverings of an unseen insurrection.
What does an abandoned oracle, a broken royal family, rival bounty hunters, and a mad sorceress on the run have in common?
One cataclysmic event!

I never get tired of opening boxes like this. While I didn't technically "win" the NaNoWriMo again this year, I've been extremely successful with it. Sivoa: Zenith now has as many words as Sivoa: Sunrise and the ending is actually written. I just need to fill in some plot holes and write in some scene connectors before it's onto the editing phase. I forgot how exciting it is to be this close to the finish line! Heck, I'm feeling this on two fronts! The children's book I've been working on is approaching completion and is looking like it'll make its deadline of February! Y'all, this story is so stinking cute! It's about 5 little goblins just barely not failing at puppy sitting. Stylistically, it's like a hybrid storybook and comic, which helps to keep it timeless. 🥰 Being on the production side, I do not know what launch procedures for this book will look like, but if you want to be kept informed about release and ordering information
As I'm typing this, I'm preparing to leave for Rose City Comic Con , in Portland, OR with my BFF, The White Elk ! This is the first convention I've ever attended on that side of the country and I'm excited to see, like, s o many online friends ! Then two weeks after that I get to see even more at Necronomicon over here in Tampa, where I will be vending . I really kind of need this after last month. August was very rough for me with the kiddo starting school back up (in Florida, where everything is insane) and the passing of Jarvis , my (but then Daniel's ) cat. She meant a lot to me. More than I think I'll ever be able to explain. I did manage to get some art done though! Two children's book pages, a Sivoa illustration (with another coming out on Tuesday!), and two Sivoa sketches! All of which can be found on the Patreon member Discord channel ! I also got a ton of writing done. 😁 If you already follow me on Patreon (it's free!), these monthly emails
and everyone is having them! It's festival season and because all walks of life had paused their events until now, there are just… so many! I've gotta say, going full-on back to in-person conventions has been a weird experience. To keep things short, Rose City Comic Con was so vigilant with making sure attendees had been vaccinated and wore masks, that it felt completely safe to be in that big hall, even with the huge crowds. Necronomicon , on the other hand, said that it was unreasonable to expect them to enforce any such policy, and as such, the convention was empty. I know that correlation does not equal causation, but numerous people replied to Necronomicon's facebook group, saying that they didn't feel safe to go because of health concerns... so they didn't. I guess the TLDR of this is that making the public feel safe seems to be a good business move. It's certainly becoming a factor in my decisions on which events I want to attend in the future. Yes, I kn
