Pride Themed Book Suggestions from @kleffnotes

It has been a bit busy for me recently and I haven’t really had a lot of time to devote to article writing. I will be taking the rest of this week off to give myself time to get some content out next week, but for now I thought I would share a few previous articles with some reading suggestions. You could also find a number of suggestions in my old Bi Line features.

Julia Scotti: Funny That Way Review from @kleffnotes

Julia Scotti: Funny That Way is a documentary that has been officially selected for the Documentary Competition at the Geena Davis’ Bentonville Film Festival and is also an official selection at Austin’s AGLIFF 2020(All Genders, Lifestyles, and Identities Film Festival).

#ClexaCon Virtual 2021 Article Round-up from @kleffnotes (@ClexaCon)

I thought for ease of access if folks wanted to check out my ClexaCon Virtual 2021 I would compile all the links here. If you joined in on the convention I would love to know your thoughts and your favorite moments. Also if you attended any of the panels I did I would love to hear what you enjoyed.

#ClexaCon Belated Panel Catchup from @kleffnotes

While yes, ClexaCon Virtual 2021 was last weekend I found myself having to play a lot of catch-up for coverage. When the convention has been in person I would typically live tweet panels and then just do a large wrap-up article when I returned from Las Vegas. This year was the first time I covered the convention virtually and I only had a chance to catch one panel on time. This weekend I planned to do a major watch session to get caught up. Now I did already do a write-up in detail of the panel I did attend so this article is more a synopsis of multiple panels I watched in a row. Check out my thoughts on a bit of ClexaCon weekend in case you weren’t able to tune in.

#ClexaCon LGBTQ+ Actors Saturday Panel from @kleffnotes

This year I had hoped to attend numerous panels live, but my schedule got away from me. I did though manage to get to one panel live for ClexaCon Virtual 2021, which is one of my favorite panels every year. Each year I actively try to get to the LGBTQ+ Actors panel and I was so excited to see that there would be two panels this year devoted to LGBTQ+ actors. The slight downside for me was that one fell squarely when I had a rehearsal I had to attend. I wanted to share my brief thoughts and wrap up from the panel I could attend for all of you that might be interested in learning what I did.

Vendor Highlight #ClexaCon Virtual 2021 from @kleffnotes

One of my absolute favorite things about any convention is the Vendor Floor. I spend hours, literal hours, on the vendor floor when I have been at in person ClexaCon and FlameCon I honestly only do the vendor floor. You can meet so many people and see so many creative things. I’m also a huge fan of using this portion of the convention to get books to review in the future. I literally have to save space in my suitcases and carry-on and my bags weigh so much more after a convention. The downside of virtual is I can’t just browse, but thankfully ClexaCon has a virtual marketplace still available on their website.

#ClexaCon Articles to Come from @kleffnotes

This weekend, April 16th to the 18th, was virtual ClexaCon 2021. I admittedly had not initially planned to take part in the convention, primarily because I haven’t taken part in any virtual conventions and my weekend schedules have been pretty packed. I was super excited when by surprise I was offered a press pass to the convention for all three days and had planned to be very involved. That didn’t exactly happen, but I do have plans.

And Then We Screamed Gay Fred in Excitement from @kleffnotes

Krista has been introducing me to a number of legal shows and we recently got caught up on All Rise. Now we are stuck waiting for weekly episodes and this week a new episode dropped that did not disappoint. For those who don’t know, All Rise is a series focused primarily on Judge Lola Carmichael who has recently been made a judge in Los Angeles. In the second season they have had to adapt like most shows to Covid restrictions and the actor who plays Lola, Simone Missick is frequently shown through screens or away from the rest of the cast. This most recent episode is odd because she doesn’t appear at all. They don’t explain why, but since she is not present this allows for a focus on a different judge, Lisa Benner.

Sparo Rising: Blade of Wexbury Book Review from @kleffnotes

If you haven’t read any of my previous Techromancy Scrolls reviews I definitely urge you to go check those our before you delve into this one. That series just ended, but while the base story may be done Erik Schubach is now devoting some time to adding some more details to characters that were not as central to the original plot. The Sparo Rising series is a spinoff focused on a side character in a standalone story. You wouldn’t need to read the original series to understand this new series, but I highly recommend it.

Techromancy Scrolls: Colossus Book Review from @kleffnotes

The final book in the Techromancy Scrolls series is out and as someone who has loved this series, I am sad to see it end. I though know there is still hope, there is more to come after this series, but I will hold it in and save all my emotions for the detailed portion of the Techromancy Scrolls: Colossus review.
