Whew, I made it. I was running late, so I didn't check into the hotel or unpack my car for three hours, but I made it to my first panel, a Q&A with Timothy Zanh, literally a minute before it began. And I am so glad I didn't give up hope to make it on time because it was great. He's got two sequels to Thrawn in the works, but has to wait until season 4 of Rebels sets more canon. Also, found out he wrote Thrawn to be a prequel of sorts for Rebels season 3.

writing worships with Zahn and Stackpole have been totally worth the money so far. And I've found one person to talk about Twin Peaks with - one of the writer guests I've met at Con Carolinas. Also, there's a Twin Peaks panel on Sunday - cannot wait!    

Now, going to bed early cause I am wiped. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Last week - The Secret History of Twin Peaks by Mark Frost - A++
I already squeed about this book here  and here

Currently reading: 
Athletic Massage - besides massage technique, this is a really detailed review on the cardiovascular, myofascial, neuromuscular, and lymphatic systems, which is good and needed, since it’s been years since I was in school. 

Karma Yoga by Swami Vivekananda - practical and philosophical instruction on karma, duty, altruism, non-attachment, and yoga (union of Self with Godhead). Also has an interesting section on the power of words, and their intrinsic connection to thought and divine power. 

Heir to the Empire (Thrawn Trilogy, Star Wars) - this should be arriving today. I read it back when it was first released, and I did like it, but also found it boring and hard to follow/understand in some parts. Generally, I’ve always preferred to watch sci-fi and read fantasy/horror. But I’d like to change that (since I’m trying to write sci-fi), or see if I like it better now that I’m older and have two more decades of sci-fi and science under my belt. 

I’m re-reading the Thrawn trilogy in anticipation of meeting Zahn next month, and for reading the book Thrawn, and since he’s back in canon now. I like being able to hold my own in geek convos :-) And people are debating if there’s any of the twins and their cousin’s story being told with Ben and Rey, and I’d like to be able to have my own opinion on that. 

Knight in Charlotte (Fantasy, set here in modern Charlotte, NC!) and Dark Space Universe (Hardish sci-fi, part of a series.) These are books I started a few weeks ago. The Secret History shoved them over, and they are now on hold until I catch up on Thrawn. I’m not very far in either, but they both grabbed me and I look forward to getting back to them.
