Tea Junkie Magazine

TeaTea Junkie Magazine has launched its inaugural issue. Interested in tea? The articles inside are interesting and informative. My book review of Asian Pulp is included and you should check it out too.

The magazine is the love child of Kimberly Richardson, an author with a real passion for tea. If you like what you read, you should look into her tea blends sold under Viridian Tea Company. You can find Viridian Tea on Facebook and Etsy.

So, brew a cup of your favorite tea and settle in for a Tea-riffic read you can enjoy oolong time.

Thank you for reading,

Life Updates

Life is flowing well.

The new job is proceeding apace. Been there a month now and have progressed from training to working on my own. Ending time varies a bit depending on the number of customers but is a solid and enjoyable flow. We got out early enough tonight I could have some time to write a note and say hello.

I’m still riding the high from CoastCon 42. Personally, and for Pro Se, felt great opening a new convention for the publisher and taking part in the convention as a guest. Missed going to Midsouth Con in Memphis this past weekend but have seen some great posts from friends who had a good time.

All of it is making me look forward to CyPhaCon in April.

There is still at least one items owed to a couple of people from CoastCon. Notes from one of my panels, I need to arrange them more coherently for someone who does not live inside my head.

Travelled to New Orleans with friends to a large book sale this weekend. Picked up a variety of reference materials. A few, like Flights of Passage and Shinano!,  I look forward to reading, others are going to be fun to peruse at leisure or reference as needed.

So, off now to shine a light in dark places. We have some light bulbs out and need replacing. Just doesn’t sound as much fun that way.

Thank you for reading my ramble and hope your days are going well.

If you missed CoastCon 42, you missed a great convention!

On behalf of Pro Se Productions I would like to thank the staff and volunteers of CoastCon for hosting an outstanding convention. It was an honor to be a guest for this milestone event and I was delighted to be invited back next year. The staff and organization of this convention was outstanding. I cannot sing your praises enough as an admirably professional organization.
This was Pro Se’s first event with CoastCon and we would especially like to thank the following individuals for making Coastcon 42 a remarkable experience, Frank Schiavo Pauline Blacker Grigsby, Timothy Broome, Kayla Fisher, Paula Fisher, Robert Ashmore, Chip Lechner, and Cami Brown.

A special thank you to Karen Lewis, Cathy Chandler, and Unity Rains for your efforts as guest liaison, Dealer room and scheduling. As the ones who dealt with me the most, your efforts to make sure this event was a success for me as guest and a vendor were over the moon.

Coast Con 43 is already a highly anticipated event for next years calendar.

Thank you for reading,

Ernest Russell
