I am back from Europe, and by “back” I mean “attending a wedding in Dallas, Texas.” Anyway, I’ve already recapped EuroFurence and not much has happened since then. I saw that Michael Sam was cut and that most people realize that it was for football reasons, so nobody is making a big deal about it. Here’s hoping he catches on with another team somewhere–I have to think that someone with his reported work ethic will find a place to play, in the CFL (Peter King reported that Montreal had their eye on him) if not the NFL.
While I was in Europe, the comic I did with Keovi for Erika Moen’s “Oh Joy Sex Toy” site got picked up by Upworthy and then the Huffington Post, so that was cool. All that comic-related stuff seems to hit when I’m out of the country; I was in India when the comic was released. Thanks to everyone who tweeted and mailed about it (I got an adorable e-mail from a mom who wanted to know how to support her fifteen-year-old furry son, and you guys all tweeted helpful responses which she appreciated). As of yet, no six-figure offers to turn it into a screenplay have materialized, but Kio, Erika, Matt, and I are keeping fingers crossed.
Football season is nearly upon us! *wag*
And I am, of course, writing. “Black Angel” is about halfway done; hope to finish up by the end of September. I have a couple con-related story projects to do this fall, and hopefully in the next month or so I will be announcing a story-related project that you can participate in! (If you are guessing that it is Patreon-related, you are very astute. Have a chocolate.) Also Kit and I are going to buckle down and seriously figure out this Firebirds jersey thing, so keep an eye out for that.
