Chat Me: Gaming with Scott

I was interviewed at Starbase Indy by the famous local podcast, Gaming with Scott!

Tune in and enjoy my thoughts on parenting styles, racism, vegetarianism, passion and honesty, why horns don’t belong on viking helmets, and getting exposure as a writer and new author.

I’M PUBLISHING A BOOK!

I’ve compiled about 200 pages of my writings into a manuscript. Many of the pieces have appeared on this blog, but much of it is brand new and only available in the book.

It’s a lot of the same kind of stuff, plus a really silly story about that time in college when we made a giant fireball.

The title is How to Raise Viking Children and Other Tales of Woe. I’m thinking it will be $12.95 and should be available on Amazon by Thanksgiving. It will make a great stocking stuffer – just sayin’.

And for those of you who attend local gaming and sci-fi conventions, I plan to debut my book at my author table at Starbase Indy this Thanksgiving weekend. It’s going to be a great time and I’ll be signing books and I’m sure to have a show-only special low price. Plus, you know, hugs.

The process of self-publishing a book has been really eye-opening for me. It seemed so simple but it’s been a real obstacle course. I’ll be sharing more details on my blog of the whole adventure in the coming days and weeks.

My favorite part so far is my pop-up banner for my author booth that just arrived today, so I thought I’d show it off…

I’m so excited! This is one of my longest held dreams, a total bucket list check-off.

Thank you all for the amazing support and encouragement!

Me: “Hey, that’s Musetta Vander. I met her at Starbase Indy.”

Wonderful Wife: “Oh, yeah, she looks like that one woman who’s weird but everyone thinks is beautiful.”

Me: “That’s not enough info to… Oh, wait, you mean Fairuza Balk.”

WW: “Yeah, that’s her.”

(long pause)

Me: “So now I can read your mind.”

WW: “Careful what you wish for.”
