Back from Balticon

After a fantastic weekend seeing old and meeting new faces, and a very long, scenic drive, I have made it home.

To reflect on this weekend is to be reminded of how wonderful this international family truly is. It is unfortunate that I can only get together with this group once a year.  My friend Valerie Griswold – Ford and I are working with other friends in the New England/Eastern Canada area to do a NoreasterCon. Personally, I’d like to do it as a “lets create something amazing this weekend, record it and post it as soon as possible” event. All the panels that I wanted to go to I didn’t end up getting to go to due to my own schedule, and just being worn out.

I also got to sell my own publication of Stonebriar Casefile: 182, Bad Alchemy. It is the story of Beatrix Stonebriar and how she uses her fae magic to assist in solving crimes through the CSI department. I still have CD’s for sale at $5. If you are interested, please email me at LNicole at FlyingIslandPress dot com. I have also been asked to create more cases for Trixie the Pixie (she’s gonna hate me for calling her that) so I guess that means that it is time for me to do some research.

The Stargazers Live Audio Drama went beautifully, even if I didn’t get to use the background SFX that I had worked on. I got live foley from Keith R. A. DeCandido instead and it was amazing. Thanks to Keith, M. Sieiro Garcia, Bryan Lincoln, Encaf1, Veronica Giguerre, P.G. Holyfield, Doc Coleman, Scott Roche, Starla Huchton, Tim Dodge, Val Griswold-Ford, Dee Reed, and Kim the Comic Book Goddess for bringing the story to life. Paulette Jaxton and Nuchtchas were supposed to be voices as well, but they had other things come up.

Also, it was my boyfriend’s first con. Everyone was great to him and he had a fantastic time! He will come back next year as will my father and his family.

I hope you all had a great weekend. I know I did. I just chose sleep over after parties. Thanks for the memories and let’s do it again next year.

A Game for Balticon

Last week I posted a new PSYT on Flying Island Press. If you haven’t heard it yet, you might want to do so. In it I talked about the need to disconnect from the interwebs, the phones, everything… It’s good for the psyche. And during the recording of said episode, I had a thought. Why not make people find you through a scavenger hunt.

During the weekend I will give hints on Twitter @LN_Dragonsong to find where I am hanging out.  The hunt itself has some pretty awesome prizes and I would like to thank my friends in the Science Fiction Collective for sponsoring this game.  I will have printed out copies of these rules at Balticon, but they stand as follows.

Audio update 5/16/12

Well everyone, I have more audio to tell you about, and new stuff that is going live tomorrow.

First, a new Galley Table  went live today. We actually recorded this last night and I am pretty sure this is the fastest turn around I have seen on it.

And check out the promo I recorded for Balticon.

The thunder storm is driving my dogs nuts so I am going to log off and be back tomorrow.

New Audio 05/10/2012

Hiya Folks,

I am getting back in to voice acting with much passion and reckless abandon. While most of my efforts are going toward getting all of the narration finished for Absolution, I have several other shows that I am lending my voice to. These are great shows for you to check out. Whenever a new show that features me comes out, I will be sure to post it as soon as possible.

For right now I am going to post the latest shows that feature my voice within the past couple of months.

Flying Island Press: Galley Table
