Today has been my 26th birthday and was a brilliant day. I went to see Avengers: Age of Ultron in IMAX with my friends and had a lovely Claim Jumper dinner with my family. Now, I am spending the last few hours of my birthday writing my second editions and short stories. This was such a great birthday! As I am now a little over a quarter century old, I am going to continue to put the pedal to the metal with my writing. Wish me luck!
I went to the art gallery tonight and I was pleased with the results. The gallery had an entire wall dedicated to the artwork the students did about my books and characters. There were a few pieces that were not included in my WonderCon slideshow, several of which were both exotic and unique. I got to meet the parents of some of the students and they were appreciative of me including their children in both my writing and my WonderCon booth. In addition, I spoke with one of the students and he agreed to make cover illustrations for my future short stories. I look forward to anything else this event will produce.
I have great news! The students and teachers who made concept artwork for my characters for WonderCon are having an art gallery this Saturday that will feature all of their artwork. They even invited me to participate in the event and a number of the students are interested in designing the cover illustrations for my future short stories and second editions. It will be a combination between a business event and pleasure event. I look forward to see the rest of the artwork and meet more of the people who have helped make my WonderCon booth possible.
One of the most common concepts in science fiction is genetic engineering, which is the science that involves modifying, augmenting, or creating life. Overall, it consists of either splicing or altering genes and seeing what the results are. Sometimes the scientific goal is to create better crops, other times it is to improve healthcare, and on several occasions it has been to create monsters and living weapons. This concept will be heavily portrayed in the fifth volume of my series as well as my planned sequel trilogy.
I have always been supremely interested in the future and imagined how the world would evolve as time goes by. There have been numerous elements of possible futures that have caught my attention such as highly advanced technological cities, blindly loyal android servants, and countless other aspects of scientific progress. In one of my earlier posts, I discussed the concept of a utopia and often thought of it including a society that is completely uninhibited by technological advancement, allowing science to constantly grow and evolve without limit. Among my future works, I plan to write a sequel trilogy that takes place centuries into the future within this technological utopia and will revolve around the Young Guardians’ great grandchildren. The adventures of this next generation of Young Guardians will allow the reader to explore the inner workings of the advanced world they live in. I can already imagine a number of events that will happen throughout this future trilogy and look forward to working on them once I have completed my current projects.
It has recently come to my attention that my writing has improved since I started my series eight years ago. As a result, I am planning to release second editions of my series in the near future. I have consulted my production team and they said that these new editions will have new cover designs and be produced from a different publisher. I already got started and have edited the first two chapters of my first volume. I am very pleased with the results and look forward to continue working on this new project. I will keep you posted.
I have exciting news! As a result of WonderCon, I have acquired a partnership with a high school in Pomona that will make my book signing at WonderCon 2016 even bigger than this year! With the resources they will be providing, they plan to include more marketing materials apart from fliers, book marks, and posters. These new marketing materials will consist of buttons with character faces on them and art work of the characters to sell in addition to my books. They will also have more personnel who will assist me throughout the convention. I am currently on the look out for when the application for WonderCon 2016 will be available. I will keep you updated on further developments. Wish me luck!
