Lady Xiansa will be speaking about Japanese anime and culture in a few weeks at the Sanagawa anime festival. Details are here:
My other projects are coming along according to schedule. The rewrite of parts of volume 3, the concluding section, of my science fiction novel The Vulpecula Cycle are shaping up nicely, and I expect to have that published as an e-book in the next few weeks with the print edition of the entire series in one volume available around the same time or shortly after that in December. I will have a limited selection of items with Vulpecula Cycle artwork available at Zazzle once I get that figured out. I will announce the details when I get closer to having those projects finished.
Let me also take a moment to direct you to my new secondary blog that is linked at the bottom of the right column here, The Sun Rises in the East blog on the East Asian publishing industry. I will talk over there sometimes about related but off-topic subjects as I have time to and as I come across interesting information.
Hope you can make it to the festival!
