[Writer Post] [Conventions] ConDFW Programming – February 12-14, 2016

Posted by reudaly on February 3, 2016 in Conventions, Writing |

Today is super busy, so the post for today/this week is my current programming for ConDFW next week. This year they are running me ragged on Saturday. If I’m inadvertently rude to anyone, you can see why. Apologies in advance.

Rhonda Eudaly
Friday
AUTOGRAPHS (THE GALLERY)
Friday, 5pm: Julia S. Mandala, Rhonda Eudaly

MAIN PROGRAMMING (JEFFERSON)
Friday, 6pm: Humor Recipes for the Soul
Panelists: Barbara Ann Wright (M), John Scalzi, Rhonda Eudaly, Kathy Turski, Bill Crider, K. B. Bogen
With all the talk of mashups and combining genres, we need to talk about humor in various genres. What is considered funny in Science Fiction? What is considered funny in Epic Fantasy, or even Urban Fantasy? We bring our distinguished panelists to the kitchen table and get them to spill their delicious secrets.

Saturday
READING (ADAMS)
Saturday, 10am: J. Kathleen Cheney, Rhonda Eudaly

PROGRAMMING 4 (JACKSON)
Saturday, 12pm: Crowdsourcing 101: Kickstarter and You!
Panelists: Aaron de Orive, Rhonda Eudaly, Melia Newman
If you were to talk to a random person online about Kickstarter, you would probably hear about this project that stole their money because it promised much then died. However, Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms (Indiegogo, Gofundme, etc.) have an impressive success rate – only 1 in 10 fully funded projects fail. How do you succeed in doing a Kickstarter? What do you look for in investing IN a Kickstarter? What rights do you have if your Kickstarter fails? Our panelists discuss these issues and more.

PROGRAMMING 3 (HAMILTON)
Saturday, 2pm: The Short Story: Advantages and Benefits.
Panelists: David Gray (M), Mary Gearhart‐Gray, Rhonda Eudaly, Barbara Ann Wright, Larry Atchley Jr.,
Dantzel Cherry
The short story is often overlooked by the average reader unless they read certain literary magazines or short story collections. However, they are a gem that should not be discounted so readily. Our short story writers talk about the benefits of writing short stories as opposed to writing novels.

PROGRAMMING 3 (HAMILTON)
Saturday, 4pm: The Hard Work of Writing Humor
Panelists: Julia S. Mandala (M), Rhonda Eudaly, Kathy Turski, Sabine Starr, Bill Crider, K.B. Bogen
Writing something humorous is just as rough as writing something disastrous. You have to do research, you have to make sense, and you have to be funny at the same time. Our writers talk about what they do to work through the grind, and how to maintain your sanity.

PROGRAMMING 3 (HAMILTON)
Saturday, 6pm: Redheads of the Apocalypse
Panelists: Julia S. Mandala, Linda Donahue, Rhonda Eudaly
Yes, it’s that time again – and the craziness that is the Redheads of the Apocalypse are doing a press conference. Should be a lot of fun, and they’ll answer any questions you have…

Sunday
PROGRAMMING 2 (MADISON)
Sunday, 11am: The Art of the Contract
Panelists: Julia S. Mandala (M), Rhonda Eudaly, Lawrence M. Schoen, T.M. Hunter, David L. Gray
If you want to try more traditional ways of publishing, you’re going to need to learn how to read fine print. Our publishers talk about contracts, what to look for and what to hold out for.

[Pen/Pencil Review] Kokuyo Beetle Tip Dual Tip Highlighter in Pink & Yellow

Posted by reudaly on February 1, 2016 in Review, writing instruments |

It’s been a busy weekend, and today is also busy – so this is a pseudo-rerun. Part of my Christmas haul was the companion piece to a dual tip highlighter I ran in October. The Kokuyo Beetle Tip dual tip highlighter this time in Pink and Yellow.
IMG_2800
…You can use one or the other sides – or you can play a double line. It’s kind of fun. But it’s a highlighter, there’s not a lot new you can say about highlighters…but the dual tip lets you do different things. And the pink and yellow inks are bold for the lighter colors. Because the ink is liquid, there’s some smearing if you highlight over pen ink.
IMG_2809
This Kokuyo Beetle Tip dual highlighter is 5.2″ long with the highlighter capped and 6.2″ long with the cap posted. It’s a bit wide for the hand – because there are TWO inks in the barrels, and there are no ergonomics, but it’s a cool little tool and not too expensive.
IMG_2801
The numbers:
1. How does it work?0.5 It’s decent. There are ways that can mess up. You can get green in your purple and purple in your green
2. Grip and feel0.5 – This is no frills plastic. It’s a bit wide to be completely comfortable and it’s a simple tube. There are no ergonomics.
3. Material1 It’s a no frills plastic with a purpose.
4. Overall Design1 – It’s a cool looking, fun tool. You have options for what you need to highlight.
5. Price Point1 – It’s pretty affordable. It’s $2.25 on JetPens. It’s fun, useful, and not an unreasonable investment.

[Writer Post] Half Price Books, ConDFW, and Contracts – OH MY

Posted by reudaly on January 27, 2016 in Conventions, Writing |

Wow, hey look, it’s another Wednesday. And I very nearly zoned out on the blog post. Things are clicking right along here – winds of change are blowing. Things seem…hopeful. All good things.

Thanks to those who came to Half Price Books on Sunday. I appreciate the support. It was a decent outing. When push came to shove, I did better in the two hours there than I have at some other, longer shows. So, keep supporting author events at bookstores. They matter. A lot. Now to start figuring out how to maybe do some more of that.
IMG_4771
Now, I’m going to ask you to support fandom. ConDFW is coming up in a couple of weeks – Guests of Honor are John Scalzi and Seanan McGuire. I’ve seen my preliminary schedule, and it’s going to be fun. But Saturday is going to be SUPER DUPER busy – if I seem to blow you off in the hallway, please know it’s not on purpose! Currently I have something on nearly every EVEN NUMBERED HOUR on Saturday. So, it might just be that I have to use the restroom.
IMG_4775
The reason for the plea is that ConDFW had a For-Profit comic con land on their date. I’m still trying to be charitable, but if we want the fan-run conventions (where you don’t have to pay for EVERY. LITTLE. THING) to survive, this is where it starts. I truly believe there’s a place for all kinds of fandom stuff, but I want there to be a way to make that happen without it being super expensive for fans. An actor appearing at Tyler Comic Con proposed a business model where actors are paid a flat fee and all autographs are free. He posited that by charging say $100 to get in, but then having the actor’s alley be free from there takes away the financial burden of … well, everyone. The actors get paid, the fans get contact, and the artists/vendors have less competition. Yeah, that’s not going to ever happen, but it’s an awesome idea – and one that a lot of fan-run conventions kinda do. Fans might buy art and books, but mostly we’re happy sign anything you put in front of us (except blank checks). Something to think about.

So come to ConDFW! Then SoonerCon, ArmadilloCon, and FenCon. We need you!

But what reminded me to do this blog today was a link that just popped up on my Facebook Feed. It’s a blog post by Kameron Hurley about publishing contracts. There’s some NSFW/Kids language in it, but it’s stuff that needs saying to all authors – new or established. I know I have struggled with it (and still do). The point is… you do not have to take a bad contract. No matter who the publisher is. Contracts are NOT set in stone. You can say NO to terms that make you uncomfortable (I have… it’s super hard, but it does NOT tank your career), and you SHOULD say no to terms that make you uncomfortable. This article points out what kinds of things might show up that you should say no to. Go read it right now (because I’m pretty much done here and need to get writing).

[Pen/Pencil Review] Pilot Acroball 4 Color Multi Pen – 0.7mm

Posted by reudaly on January 25, 2016 in Review, writing instruments |

When I put this week’s pen on my JetPens Wishlist, it was more from a curiosity factor than anything else. It ended up as part of my Christmas haul, so I have the prime opportunity to check it out – Yay, Wishlist! I’ve developed a taste for Pilot’s Acroball line I have to be in a “mood” for gel pens or fountain pen. BUT… there’s always a place for ballpoints and the Acroball line is rapidly becoming one of my absolute favorites.
IMG_2787
The Acroball ink is an oil-based ink that I’ve talked about before. It provides a smooth line with rich, dark pigments – including the green ink, which is by far the most difficult to do well – with minimal glops or smears. The barrel is clear plastic for a demonstrator style that lets you see the levels of the ink. The grip is a tire-pattern rubberized grip that gives a decent feel. The barrel is a bit thick, but it’s normal for the type of the pen and still comfortable. The color retracts by pushing a second plunger. The clip is spring loaded, sturdy, and easy to use.
IMG_2786
The barrel is 5.7” long and the ink points are a fantastic 0.7mm conical point with a color band around each refill to confirm color. The ink is refillable in both 0.7mm AND 0.5mm which makes this a useful, all around pen that will last quite a while. If you don’t like the clear barrel – they do come in six different colors.
IMG_2809
The numbers:
1. How does it work?1 It works really well. The retraction mechanisms are solid. The ink is solid and rich.
2. Grip and feel1 – This has a good feel. There’s nothing “extra” to the pen. The barrel is only as wide as it needs to be to hold the inks. The rubberized grip makes it pretty comfortable.
3. Material1 It’s a decent quality plastic pen with refill options. The plungers and clips are sturdy and functional
4. Overall Design1 – For a pen that should be a lot bulkier, this pen is sleek, functional and designed to do what it needs to do.
5. Price Point0.5 – It’s kind of expensive – and probably only available online through JetPens or the like – I don’t remember seeing them in stores. The multipen runs $8.25 for the first one and between $1.50 and $1.75 for the refills. It’s not something to be bought and lost – but it’s a good all around bpen.

[Writer Post] JANUARY is FIRED and Writer Stuff

Posted by reudaly on January 20, 2016 in Conventions, Writing |

Wow. It’s been a hard month when it comes to losses. After all of last week’s deaths, we started out this week hearing about Glenn Frey from The Eagles. Though I wasn’t a die-hard fan, I enjoyed the music and his acting talent. He was an iconic musician and his passing leaves a major hole in music. But today I learned of the impending loss that hits closer to home… David G. Hartwell, editor. (There have been conflicting reports of his actual loss – but his condition is DIRE..) The link I shared earlier today has been retracted.

I did not know David Hartwell well – or really at all – I’m sure I encountered him either at World Fantasy in Austin in 2006 or World Con 2013 in San Antonio, but I don’t have an awesome story like many of my friends. He was just always a part of the SF/F community, an editor I always wanted to work with but never had a chance. He was THERE. A presence. A presence that will be sorely missed by those who had the privilege to work with him and know him.

Also found out this week that ApolloCon has been cancelled for 2016. I knew they were facing some logistical issues; I understand the decision. I hope they can come back from the break. I really do. Losing ApolloCon not only leaves a hole in my summer calendar – it leaves a hole in the regional map for artists, authors, and fans. It was the main – maybe the ONE – fan run literary convention in HOUSTON. That’s a HUGE hit to fandom. Houston has always had a fan base and has been a vital part of Texas Fandom. We need a convention there – and not ONLY For-Profit Comic Cons. We need to reach all the fans. We need ApolloCon to come back stronger than ever.

So with all the deaths and losses racking up – and it’s still JUST JANUARY! – January, YOU. ARE. FIRED! Security will escort you from the premises. Your things will be sent to you. There’s the door.

The ways January does not suck…
I still have the Half Price Books signing coming up on Sunday (1-3) at the Flagship Store just off 75 and Northwest Highway. Please come, even if you have all my books and such. The more people that come in for my signing encourages the store to take risks on other authors. So by helping one (me) you help all of us. Boost the signal!

I’ve made FORWARD PROGESS (the 2016 goal). After way too long putting things off – I have both my independent chapbooks up on Amazon in ebook form (you still have to get the hard copies for me – for now). It’s just another way to try do more with what I have while writing more stuff. I have the author page which has pretty much everything – anthologies, too – on it. It’s stuff that should’ve been done, and now it is. ONWARD!

Finally – CONDFW! ConDFW is Valentine’s Weekend, but please come out and support the fan run conventions. There’s a comic con in town that weekend – and I get the appeal – but the literary conventions are a lower key way to meet authors, artists, and have the opportunity to actually get to know them and learn something about the literary/SF world. We would like you to spend money with the dealer’s room and art show and authors, but it’s not as big of a money sink as the more commercial shows. Check it out. And help keep fandom alive and active in the area.

[Pen/Pencil Review] Dollar Tree Anti-Gravity Ballpoint Pen

Posted by reudaly on January 19, 2016 in Review, writing instruments |

There’s a sad by product of having Federal Holidays on Monday… I totally forgot about the blog post. So, here we go – a day late (again). But here we go. Not doing a rerun. 2016 is about moving forward. Back during the holidays I found something at Dollar Tree that made me have to have them for the Stockings.
IMG_2802
Dollar Tree had “Anti-Gravity” ballpoint pens in a silver finish and a black. Jimmy got the black for his stocking. I got the silver. Now the point of these pens is that they have the pressurized ink barrels to make them like Fisher Space Pens – able to write at any angle and such. However… being a DOLLAR I had very low expectations.
IMG_2803
These pens aren’t nearly as…mismarked… as I thought they would be. In fact, the pen does actually write at odd angles. The ink is…adequate. It’s a broader point than I would like, I’m guessing a 1.0mm, but it’s actually a decent pen. The ink feathers a bit on the rough, handmade paper of the journal but is fairly smooth on regular paper. There’s some glopping, but it’s not that bad.
IMG_2808
The pen is about 5.5” long with the point retracted and nearly 5.75” with the point extended. The barrel is a light metal with molded accents and a sturdy clip. The pen is cast with an ergonomic design and etching to make a decent grip. The wider grip is fairly comfortable, and it’s better balanced than expected. The twist retractable mechanism is solid. Who knew?

The numbers:
1. How does it work?1 It works better than expected. It does actually write on an angle.
2. Grip and feel0.5 – It’s all metal with molded etchings. There’s nothing soft about it – and if you have a tight grip, those etched moldings can dig in and be tiresome later.
3. Material1 It’s actually METAL – maybe aluminum, but most likely a base metal alloy with a solid clip, recitation mechanism and a pressurized ink refill.
4. Overall Design0.5 – There’s nothing wrong with this pen but the size of the point – and though I know it’s my preferences – it’s part of the review process. And the fact you might have to go searching for it or order from the website while they have them in stock
5. Price Point1DUDE, it’s $1. ONE DOLLAR at Dollar Tree. It’s refillable with a pressurized refill. Even if it didn’t work AT ALL (which it does), it’s A DOLLAR. How can you beat that?

[Spotlight Post] Memorial – Bedford, Bowie, Rickman, Haggerty

Posted by reudaly on January 15, 2016 in Spotlight |

Wow. Never gets better starting a year with a “memorial” post – and this week’s been a hard hitter. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Brian Bedford, and now Dan Haggerty. All four died of cancer. Three of the four were under 75 (Bowie and Rickman were 69, Haggerty was 74). Many of these prompt a very “adult” sentiment of “F—Cancer”. I can’t agree more, but it’s a family blog.

Robin Hood/Brian Bedford from Jezebel.com

Robin Hood/Brian Bedford from Jezebel.com


All four of these men had some influence on me as a person and more importantly as a writer. Brian Bedford voiced Disney’s animated Robin Hood. It was my all-time favorite animated Disney movie. Mom and Dad gave me the Anniversary Blu-Ray of it for Christmas and all three of us broke out in “Oodalaly oodalaly golly what a day”. The movie had a great story, better songs, and Bedford’s incredible voice. Until he passed away and showed up on my Facebook feed, I didn’t have a name or face to put with this major element of my childhood. Now I do…and it’s way too late.

So many people have talked about David Bowie this week. I can’t compete with those tributes. My “Doctor” moment for Bowie was Labyrinth. A friend from high school dragged me to see it on a visit (she also dragged me to Silverado – much of my taste in movies is her fault). I liked Star Trek and Star Wars why not try THIS – and BAM. Totally crush on Jareth, The Goblin King. That was also when we were able to get cable – which meant MTV (when it meant music) which lead to the Let’s Dance videos. BAM. Bowie crush. Life moves on. Enter The Prestige and a small role where Bowie plays Nikola Tesla…DUDE. That’s a role he was MEANT to play and should’ve has a WHOLE MOVIE dedicated to him playing THAT ROLE. I’m a late comer to the music, but an avid lover of his acting. That TWO televisions shows were built around TWO of his songs. His loss is a loss to everyone in every genre and every media.

Then there was the gut punch of Alan Rickman. Same age. Same cause of death. Same lack of information that he was ever ill (is that a Brit thing?). Alan Rickman was iconic in his own way with his own career. He could be endearing and funny and evil and scary – and somehow all in the same role. I never read the Harry Potter books – did see the movies (there are reasons and they are mine), and Alan Rickman’s Snape was one of the highlights of those movies. You never knew if Snape was the Good Guy, the Bad Guy, or some unique combination of both. His portrayal of Alexander Dane in GALAXY QUEST will always be my favorite. I always thought once he became Snape – he ended up BEING that Dane character. But he is not any of those. He’s so much more the sum of his roles and will be sorely missed. His complexity, his humanity, his talent…all of it. He’ll be so missed.
From IMDB - Grizzly Adams

From IMDB – Grizzly Adams


Lastly, Dan Haggerty. Grizzly Adams was both human and frightening and daring – and made a whole generation of kids want a freakin’ BEAR for a friend/pet. (Never a good idea.) Watching Grizzly Adams deal with wilderness was the “gateway drug” to McGyver and The A-Team – any problem can be solved with ingenuity, basic skills, and compassion for other people. I’m not sure what he was doing since then – but that role was iconic for a lot of people.

This week has seen a lot of talent leave this world – and creates a challenge for those of us left behind to fill that void with our best efforts to live up to the example they’ve left behind. We need to step up to be the innovators, creators, and artists that these men were so when WE leave this earth we leave a resounding mark as well.

To the family, friends, and those close to these men, know your loss is felt across the world. Your losses are our – in different ways, of course – and your loved ones touched countless lives and influenced writers, artists, performers, and people from every walk of life. Their legacies will live on. They will be remembered. And they will be sorely missed.

[Writing Post] Writing, Reading, Signing

Posted by reudaly on January 13, 2016 in Books, What I'm Reading, Writing |

Oh, Wednesday… you’ve come back around. And now… here we are… on track for some things and behind on others. Same song, second verse. But I feel (sort of) okay with it – because I’m currently reading Felicia Day’s book, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), and just got through most of the part where she struggled with writing (though I don’t do the video game thing but still… relatable). It’s a good read – I highly recommend it.

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir

Price: $15.46

4.7 out of 5 stars (549 customer reviews)

96 used & new available from $1.19

I broke through the … blargs… that kinda hit during the holidays. Some of it might actually have something to do with the “Team Building” meeting we had at work last Friday – which was more a “clearing the air” of all the bad vibes going on in the office. It was not FUN, but it did actually seem to accomplish stuff. I’ve actually had a decent week so far on that front.

Ink and Bone: The Great Library

Price: $10.09

4.5 out of 5 stars (130 customer reviews)

60 used & new available from $7.95

And now… I’m really and for true getting back on track. No limping along in the name of productivity. I’ve not only committed editing, but also creating new word counts. I had a break on the article I should’ve had sent to Sara Felix weeks ago (fortunately I haven’t blown any deadlines YET), and that should be done/do-able by the end of the week. So that will be one thing off the “to do” list.

The Last Dream Keeper: An Echo Park Coven Novel

Price: $11.02

4.5 out of 5 stars (6 customer reviews)

30 used & new available from $6.44

At the Day Job I’m the person who Get’s … STUFF… Done. I need that to follow me home more often. Also made some progress on FenCon stuff, so momentum! Let’s roll with it. It helps that I’ve been able to have an awesome reading list to help inspire me to get my butt in gear.

The Stepsister Scheme (Princess Novels)

Price: $7.99

4.1 out of 5 stars (75 customer reviews)

104 used & new available from $0.01

Now… to stop talking and start doing. And don’t forget… Come see me at Half Price Books Flagship on Sunday, January 24, 2016 from 1-3 pm. Even if you don’t buy books from me – come to the store, say hi, and buy books there so they will book me and other authors LIKE me again. It’s the best way for authors like me to connect with new authors. Also looking into some new shows. Still taking recommendations.

[Pen/Pencil Review] Uni-Ball Signo Broad in Blue Black Ink

Posted by reudaly on January 11, 2016 in Review, writing instruments |

Let’s check out a Uni-ball offering today. This pen was… a mistake that I put on my JetPens Wish List by mistake because this is a broad point – and we all know how I feel about those. Today is the Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Pen in Blue Black ink.
IMG_2806
For the most part, the only problem I have with this pen is the size of the tip. The Uni-ball is about 5.5” capped and 5.8” long with the cap posted. The cap does post securely. The blue black ink is rich and dark. On a rough paper like my handmade journal, there’s no smearing. Quick drying ink. On slicker paper, give it a couple of seconds to dry. The point is conical but the 1.0mm tip is just too big for me. The line is wide and unwieldy.
IMG_2809
The barrel is mostly clear with a gold band identifying (I think) the point size – but the packaging is in Japanese, so there’s that. The ink reservoir is ample. There’s rubberized grip for a nod to ergonomics and comfort. This pen is theoretically refillable. Because these are Japanese Uni-ball’s they’re only available through sources like JetPens.
IMG_2807
The numbers:
1. How does it work?1 In purely function – it works as well or better than expected. The ink is smooth, rich, and dries really quickly. There was no immediate smearing on handmade paper.
2. Grip and feel0.5 – There is a rubberized grip for a nod to ergonomics. But the broad – 1.0mm – point makes the feel too big and unwieldy.
3. Material1 It’s a decent quality plastic pen with the option to refill the pen. The cap posts securely.
4. Overall Design0.5 – There’s nothing wrong with this pen but the size of the point – and though I know it’s my preferences – it’s part of the review process.
5. Price Point0.5 – It’s expensive for a seemingly typical stick gel pen and you have to order them online only – they’re from Japan – they run $2.50 on JetPens.

[Writer Blog] Knowing My Way

Posted by reudaly on January 6, 2016 in Books, Writing with Comments closed |

New year… and I’ve just read what I want my “motto” to be – and I’d totally be stealing it from what Joss Whedon says about Felicia Day at the very end of his forward to her book, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost)

If you wanna survive, stay close to the redhead. She knows her way.

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir

Price: $15.46

4.7 out of 5 stars (549 customer reviews)

96 used & new available from $1.19

I have a long, long way to go before I can say I know my way, but that’s the GOAL. That and Getting Stuff Done. I don’t do Resolutions (like diets, they’re doomed to fail), but I can do goals. And I’m ready to be… BETTER. By being better it’s part of that “knowing her way” – it’s being MORE… more diligent, more professional, which (hopefully) will turn into more prolific. And one LESS thing – less procrastinating. I’ve put stuff off that shouldn’t have ever been put off. That stops now.

Last night I built my Amazon Author page. It’s one more way to get the word out. And… now, I need to do the classic “Author Plea” of…If you’ve read anything by me – Tarbox, Redheads, any of the anthologies… please go leave a review (if you’re the reviewing type). The more I read up, the more important they are (and I probably need to be better about doing some reviews, too). Not only does it help authors get exposure, but I’m sure it’s good for the smaller presses, too. And hopefully by also being able to add my events there that’s just more people who have the opportunity to see them and maybe show up.

ASIDE: SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2016 – come see me at the Northwest Highway (Flagship) Half-Price Books from 1-3 pm. Bring your friends and your wallets. Show the store that people read A LOT!

The other thing I’m working on this month is getting my independent chapbooks up on Amazon as ebooks. Amazon is the 500lb Publishing Gorilla and is an income stream. It’s also a bullet that needed biting – and it’ll make all the ebooks (small press and other) more uniform. It’s something I should’ve done A LONG, LONG time ago, but hesitated. Occasionally, I go through “get off my lawn” moments of “It’s too much tech! I can’t do it!” – which is NOT how a good redhead should be. So, here I am, stepping out of my comfort zone and Doing The Thing.

Time to find my way – and get stuff done. Words on paper. Those have to happen, too. I’m seriously going to have to schedule out the projects – Oh so many projects. Time to move my…pen.
