BTWS05E06 – Beyond The Wall – Season 5 Episode 6

BTW ID3 Art

We were able to get together between panels at Balticon to record a discussion of episode 6. Unfortunately Viv was working on a project for the New Media Party and could only check in with us for a minute here and there.

PG Farewell Stream Announcment

#BecausePGH

Edit: Here is the direct YouTube link to watch the recording

 

Hello SpecFicMedia listeners,

On Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 at 9pm Eastern, the Beyond the Wall crew will be recording a live podcast show in which we will bid farewell to our good friend, P.G. Holyfield.

There is also an in-person gathering and a Memorial Service occurring on Oct 11th and 12th, respectively.

If you would like to attend one or both of those events, please check the links on this post at SpecFicMedia.com.

Of course, we understand that not everyone will be able to attend in person.

For so many, these podcasts are how they knew him.

So, the show on Wednesday the 8th will be a way for us, and for you, to express your feelings about this man, who brought so many people together.

We on the crew will be sharing our feelings and memories, but, we would also like to hear from you. If you have words, audio or video that you would like to share, please email it to us at BTW@SpecFicMedia.com.

Even if you have already sent something, please re-send it if you would like it to appear on this show. If you would like to send something that is just for family or any other private audience, please indicate this in your email.

And of course, if you are reading this too late or are just unable to put your feelings together before we record, please send anyways.

Also, please help us boost the signal, both for this announcement and the show event links that will follow, so that everyone that would like to can participate.

P.G. Holyfield founded a great community at SpecFicMedia, but now his watch has ended.

Our watch continues and so we will carry on our sacred duty, which is to talk about things we love – and people that we love – with all of you.

Thank you, from your friends at SpecFicMedia.com.

Balticon Update and New Art

BTW_Balticon_01

 

Balticon was wonderful this year (as always). We did a Beyond the Wall Live Show, which was a lot of fun once again. I’ll let Nutty and Viv add some details in the comments, but all in all I consider it a success. 🙂

I am now working on audio for episode 7, 8, and the Balticon Live Show. Each will be released as soon as I’m done with it.

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend, and we’ll see you next Wednesday night for our Live Hangout for Episode 9!

A few weeks ago I commissioned a piece of art from Natalie Metzger. It turned out AWESOME, and if you are greatly inspired you can purchase t-shirts and whatnot over at Spreadshirt.com.

If you see a product over there, or over at Zazzle.com that you’d like to see with this awesome art, just let me know and I’ll make it happen. Thanks!!

Living NaNoWriMo – Kickoff Hangouts

Tomorrow we’ll be holding our first two “Hangouts” for the Living NaNoWriMo project. Join us for the fun!

#1 – 2:00 pm Eastern – Kickoff Hangout for Living NaNoWriMo project. Dr. Pamela Gay, Martyn Casserly, and Nicole Ireland join P.G. Holyfield to talk about their plans for NaNoWriMo.

#2 – 9:30 pm Eastern – Kickoff Hangout for Living NaNoWriMo project. Starla Huchton, Zachary Ricks and Justin Macumber join P.G. Holyfield to talk about their plans for NaNoWriMo.

Living NaNoWriMo

I have participated in NaNoWriMo on three different occasions (2006,2007, and 2009). The most I’ve ever written was the first year, when I managed to crank out 36,000 words on Murder at Avedon Hill. This year I will be ‘doing NaNo,’ and I’ve invited some friends to join me on this journey. You might know some of these writers, and podcasters (and one is best known as an astronomer), but these are all friends that are going to take time before November 1st and and take time away from writing during November to share their experiences, and in so doing, I hope we will help each other succeed at this.

For those of you that don’t know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, November, and the goal of NaNo is to write 50,000 words in 30 days.

More on this in the next couple of days, including information on the “Kick-off Hangouts,” which will take place on Sunday afternoon and evening.

So what will “Living NaNoWriMo” be? It will consist of several Google Hangouts, longer form ones prior to November first, and then shorter ones during the month. I will be creating a page here on the site which will list the google hangout schedule, and I hope you’ll stop by and ask questions, and cheer us on. It’s all about ‘accountability’ and ‘supporting each other,’ and if you are doing NaNo as well, I hope we will be able to support you on your journey as well.

Who are the participants that will be joining me on this journey?

  • Pamela Gay, astronomer, writer, and podcaster (Astronomy Cast)
  • Justin Macumber, writer and podcaster (The Dead Robot’s Society)
  • Starla Huchton, writer, graphic designer, musician, podcaster (The Dreamer’s Thread)
  • Zachary Ricks, writer, publisher, attorney, podcaster (The Galley Table Podcast)
  • Nicole Ireland, writer, blogger (A Second Chance)
  • Martyn Casserly, journalist, musician, writer (Living with the Future)

And of course me, P.G. Holyfield, proprietor of SpecFicMedia.com and author of Murder at Avedon Hill. Come back tomorrow for more information on the google hangouts that will take place on Sunday.

TuacaCon moving…

The online streaming convention I’ve coordinated for the last two years will be delayed until Spring 2013. I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year, and there’s just not enough time in the month to do both. Also, the convention will be rebranded, as I would like to move away from the Tuaca name. Fireball Con, anyone? We’ll see.

If you are a writer, musician, artist, etc. and would like more information, there are a lot of videos from TuacaCon 2010 and 2011 over at UStream.tv
