Reaching Out…

I’m officially going to The Rust City Book Con in August of 2016 as a guest Author! (Not just for fun…)

Yeah… its a ways off but it’s given me all sorts of insights into what I need to do to be ready for such a thing. I spent the better part of last night making up an official Calandra Usher Author Facebook page, because being a real person and having a profile page isn’t enough. (No, I don’t get it, but I don’t have to.) So that’s done. Go like it, please.

Today I updated this site a great deal, putting in more info about me as an author, some more pictures, and the events tab as well. Hopefully there will be more events joining the Rust City listing soon. I’m looking into attending ArisiaCon in January.

Something Something Darkside, Something Something Complete! (In the voice of Emperor Palpatine) 

It’s hard to believe but the series is complete!  Does that mean it’s finished, that I won’t keep nit picking at it and finding little things I want to change… no. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to really put it down. It’s such a part of me. It’s been a crazy ride, and a completely unexpected one. I wasn’t kidding when I said I didn’t want to write it and the experience was both painful and yet surprising cathartic. But that was Fabian’s plan all along. I still have nightmares about it all but one of these days those will go away too. 

So what’s next? I’m not sure. There are more stories, short ones… things from the Riders’ pasts. I’d like to do a volume for each of them detailing their separate histories but I’m not sure that will happen. 

There’s also the original dream I had back in high school. The one where I met Dean, Ren, Pete, and Fabe… Thought they had different names.  That could be a volume all on its own. 

And then there’s the babies… So much about the kids. 

More in this universe or something new?  Can I do both and hold my sanity?  Who said I was sane to start with?
