The convention season is in full swing!

April was the beginning of my 2018 convention season. I couldn’t think of any better way to kick off an extraordinary year than attending JordanCon. It’s my favorite convention honoring the literary works of Robert Jordan and his Wheel of Time series. This year, Brandon Sanderson attended, and it was phenomenal. If you are in the Atlanta area and haven’t attended JordanCon yet, add it to your itinerary for next year. You won’t be disappointed.

Not only did I enjoy mingling with my JordanCon family and chatting with Brandon Sanderson, but I also met two fantastic authors I’ve known only through social media. Morgan Smith (my amazing editor) traveled from Canada, and Tom Fallwell (a co-author on an upcoming epic) traveled from Oklahoma. I’m hoping this won’t be the last time that they visit.

I was pleased to meet a few local authors I know as well. Mark McCray (adult swim), JD Estrada, and VR McCoy attended for the first time, too.

Check out the JordanCon WEBSITE for information about next year. Whether you love art, novels, gaming, or cosplaying, this is the family friendly event you’ll want to be a part of!

WhoLanta 2018

WhoLanta was my second event of the year. Although it was slower due to numerous uncontrollable issues (one dealing with horrible construction), I had a wonderful time and look forward to next year. Some of my vendor friends and I enjoyed visiting the Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey display. They have some exceptional props from Dr. Who and more.

To find out my schedule for the year, click HERE. A few events aren’t listed, but I’ll be updating soon. Come and visit me at OutLanta and TrekLanta soon! I’ll be paying homage to Nichelle Nichols (as Uhura) and might bring my bat’leth in case I need to battle more Klingons! As they say, “Heghlu’meH QaQ jajvam.” Just kidding.  Qapla’!

 

Author: Aaron-Michael Hall

Aaron-Michael Hall is a native of southern Illinois. She was born and raised just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Mo. After moving about the country, she has returned to her roots and where this journey began. When she was younger, Aaron-Michael would get lost in the fantasy and sci-fi worlds created by Andre Norton, N.K. Jemisin, R.A. Salvatore, Octavia Butler, Ursula K Le Guin, and R. Scott Bakker. Being from a large family, Aaron-Michael would often steal away high in a tree or nearby wood seeking solitude. While enjoying the peace her natural surrounding provided, she created her own worlds and languages. For hours, she would be lost in the magnificence of her own imagination. Some characters and elements created then are used now in her current series. The Rise of Nazil is the first novel in the trilogy of the same name from this new author. It is an intelligent and intriguing read with a host of characters. Seed of Scorn (book 2) and Piercing the Darkness (book 3) complete The Rise of Nazil trilogy and are all available on Amazon. When asked why she wrote this series, Aaron-Michael simply said, “It needed to be written.” Blood of Oisin is the title of the first novel in The Shifter trilogy that releases February 2017. It is her hope that the readers enjoy the wonders of Faélondul even more than she enjoyed writing about them.
