It’s All About Creativity – Tell The Damn Story

It’s All About Creativity – Tell The Damn Story

At PulpFest 2018, July 27-29 in Pittsburgh, PA. To continue the story from yesterday…I met several other authors at PulpFest 2018 including – Christopher Paul Carey (author and editor at Paizo Publishing and who channels Edgar Rice Burroughs, I swear it!), Joab Steiglitz, and Chris Ryan. It was wonderful and intimidating introducing myself and starting […]

Lure of the “Con” – PulpFest 2018

Lure of the “Con” – PulpFest 2018

You look at a science fiction convention and think, I want to be there with my peeps. All those fans of the same sorts of things that I like. It’ll be great! Of course, I’ll be judged, especially as a newcomer, but so what? It’s time to step out with my own bad self and […]

Interview on the Skirt and Words podcast

Interview on the Skirt and Words podcast

Back in the early Summer, my friend and fellow-author Denise Kawaii invited me to take part in her vidcast, Skirts and Words. I love doing radio/podcasts but this was my first vidcast. Oh, how I slumped! (My mother would be so ashamed.) Still, the company was great and the content is good. We discussed women […]

Vintage Style

I am very tardy in reporting the activities of this Summer & Fall. I shall now attempt to play catch up. Not an easy task as there’s so much to catch up with. Let’s start with vintage. In July, I embraced a 1940’s/1950’s vintage style. This coincided with (and was initially sparked by) attendance at […]

I’m famous! Or, at least, I’ve just gotten some very nice press

Nancy Keaton just wrote a lovely story about me for LewisTalk – “Sara Light-Waller Illustrates Hope through Old-Fashioned Pulp Fiction.”  Thank you, Nancy, for the kind story, it’s a treat to be on the other side of the tape recorder once and a while. Here’s an excerpt from the article – Sara Light-Waller’s first adult […]

Sunday Evening Etymology Astounding interior illustration by Edd Cartier

Sunday Evening Etymology

The term used to be “unhuman.” Now, it’s “inhuman.” I’m not sure exactly when it changed, certainly by the 1970’s. The etymology leads me to believe that in earlier decades some writers followed the trail from the old French word “humain” and so unhuman is correct. At a later time we accepted that human is […]

A Smashingly Good Review for Landscape! Star Scene_News Flash

A Smashingly Good Review for Landscape!

Landscape has received another 5 Star review. The gentleman is himself an author of pulp space opera so the review is even more meaningful. He’s posted the review on Amazon and on his blog, Pulp Den. Here’s an excerpt… “Right out of the pulp magazines of the 1930s & ‘40s, the author spins her tale […]

Report from the Field — Nanocon Mk. V March 24, 2018

Today, I attended my first science fiction convention as a book seller. It was a super experience. But before we get to that, let’s recap. Landscape of Darkness: A Novelette of the Space Patrol has been in print since January 15th, 2018. Since then it has been featured on the Rodney’s Saga Blog and had […]
