Hello, Champions! I have some fun to share with you Champions who couldn’t attend Sheacon–and a survey for those of you who did!
First off, we have the audio recordings of all the panels! Yes, all of them! There was one or two tiny tech mishaps during the panels themselves, but for the most part the records are fantastic, and we owe a huge thank you to the Sheacon planners for all the work they did to make these recordings available to everyone!
So, are you ready to listen to the panels? Click on the panel name to go to the audio file! (Important note: The free book deals mentioned are no longer available, but you can still download the limited edition coloring pages!)
- Opening Ceremonies (and Miss Champion 2021 pagent)
- Fantasy Author Panel with Deborah Grace White, Julie Hall, Tara Grayce, Sarah K Wilson, and Kimberly Rogers
- WR Gingell panel

- Celebritity Retha & Dragons with Kitty, AG Marshall, Vin, and RayJay
- Timeless Fairy Tale/Fairy Tale Enchantress SPOILER FILLED Q&A with Kitty
- Artist Panel: There is video that goes with this one, but sadly it’s too big for me to upload to the site, so we’ll have to be satisfied with mp3. 🙁 (Although if you are tech savy, here is a link to the Google drive that contains all the audio files, including the video, so you can watch it through there.)
- Champion Trivia & closing ceremonies. (If you want to see the art that goes with some of my guesses for Champion Trivia, here is a download link to the zipped file that contains these images.)
Fun fact I personally learned from Sheacon. Tara Grace–author of the amazing Elven Alliance series–was a Champion forever ago, back when I released the “Goblins Wear Suits,” the sequel book of the Magical Beings’ Rehabilitation Center. And–get this–at the time I ran a contest to name characters, and Tara won the right to name a particular goblin bodyguard. That’s right, Tara named Harrison! So go show Tara some love and tell her that Harrison sent you! 😉
The Sheacon Planners–in their sweet wish to improve an already awesome event–have an exit survey for all of the Champions who attended this year’s Con. You can take the survey by clicking here. Thanks in advance!
Speaking of which, we all owe the Sheacon Planners a standing ovation! They spent countless hours planning the event, preparing the servers and the games, organizing the panelists, and more. They worked hard so we could have a fun and memorable weekend! So, a huge whistle-filled, flower-throwing thank you to Cindy, Cwang, Emarynn, Zooknar/Miss Champion 2021, Helaine, Anneli, Pumpkin Pi, Lemon Duck, Ellarose, Xoffelokin, Batattack, Kay, and Dino. You all are amazing and produced a professional online convention that was fun for everyone and made so many fun memories for our community. And I’d like to extend an additional thank you to Vin–our Community Manager–and SuperRog AKA Miss Champion 2020.
Finally, thank you to all of you Champions who came and joined in the fun. I’m so glad we have the kind of community that can come together like this and nerd out over books for a weekend. Thank you for being a part of it.
And that’s all, Champions! I’m moving homes, so I’m going to take the next week or two quasi-off. (I say quasi, because I still have a blog post coming up soon here, and a few fun Facebook posts, and I’m hoping to write the first Retha scene…) but after that we’ll jump into a few Angelique themed blog posts! Until next time, Champions, have a lovely day and enjoy the panels!
Thank you so, so much for the recordings!! I was moving the weekend of SheaCon and couldn’t attend, but these are perfect!!
Not to be rude, but when is the next Second Age of Retha book supposed to come out?
This is totally random, but I just realized that the two most recent FTE release dates coincide with the summer olympics 😂 Kitty, do you watch the olympics?
Instead of the myriad of random comments I’d love to make, I have one request: please, PLEASE write an extra w/ Angel and Evariste cooking. I would love that so much. 😍Also, I don’t love having to wait all the way until 2024 for the next FTE but I love you and your books so much, Kitty, that I absolutely will. Thank you so much!
I agree, that sounds like an awesome extra!! Hey, I couldn’t make the panel, was it confirmed that FTE #5 is planned for 2024? Thank you so much!!
Yeah, Kitty said book 5 is due for 2024 on the panel, although since that’s far away, the schedule might change at some point down the line. I think she’ll probably give an official update on the website soon.
Sounds good, thank you for letting me know! 🙂
mmmphh, I don’t know how I’m going to live that long!!! But I am glad Kitty is taking her time and following the pace she needs!
OMG thank you so much SheaCon planners for recording these panels. I wasn’t able to make it but I’m really really happy that I’m able to listen to them. Also I hope you are able to rest and move in comfortably Kitty! Thank you so much for all your hard work!
Can you pretty please include the Magiford Baby Boom graphic in one of your blog posts?
