It’s that time again! Time for PAX, games, and fun. And if you’ve always wondered how to get into game writing, it’s time you find out how. Join me and other fine game writers at PAX Prime to get all your burning questions answered on how to be a game writer.
So, you want to be a game writer…
Many writers (and non-writers!) would love to contribute their storytelling skills to games. What types of writing jobs are out there? How can you get a job working at a studio or as a freelancer? Beyond storytelling, what should your samples showcase? Panel participants are veteran game writers who have worked on AAA, indie, and mobile titles. These freelancers and studio employees have the insights to help you pursue that game writing career!

You’ve been with us since the beginning (right?). You’ve watched Zoe grow from being the new girl, to becoming the leader of an international group of girls with magical powers. Now see how it all ends with the finale issue, Crystal Cadets #8! In this issue, discover a surprise connection between Emmy and one of Zoe’s friends! Can the Cadets win when they’re short one cadet, or will Emmy finally meet her match?
Check out a preview of Crystal Cadets #8, or run on over and get your digital copy now! You can catch up on all the previous issues here.
The penultimate issue of Crystal Cadets has just gone live! Crystal Cadets #7 finds Jasmine captured by Emmy, and the Darkness taking over. Zoe and the Cadets will have to enlist a friend to find Jasmine — but they may have to choose between saving her, and the last missing cadet. Shenanigans ensue! Check out a preview of this issue, or head on over to get Crystal Cadets #7!
On top of that, I spent yesterday reviewing all 8 issues (yes, there is indeed one more) for the print graphic novel! I got a few chuckles myself, since I hadn’t read them all in a bit. So it looks like the graphic novel IS COMING! But if you can’t wait, hop on over to read Crystal Cadets #7, before the finale next month!

Wondercon is this weekend, and if you’ll be there, you can find me signing at the Lion Forge booth, 401, from 2-3pm on Saturday. Allegedly, I will be signing preview PRINT copies of magical girl comic Crystal Cadets. But this could be just an ugly rumor. Here is my only clue:
Will there be preview copies? If you’re feeling adventurous, come join me at 2pm on Saturday and find out.
