Video X1 Xaphan Tropism

November 13, 2012

After six books, going on seven, the League of Elder Universe has gotten pretty big. I pride myself on creating as original a world as possible, and that often entails dreaming odd and perplexing institutions as a part of world-building. Often times, the energy of the author can help propel new ideas into being. I usually try to keep myself out of the mix and allow my creations to do the talking, however, my cover artist, Carol Phillips mentioned that I should do short movies. She listened to me blather on for hours and made the suggestion.

Videos of me talking … is she nuts?

So, I thought I’d give it a try. Armed with my laptop and a basic editing software, here it is, my first attempt. I’ve come a long way from the time when I was so shy I could barely look a stranger in the face.

In this first video, we discuss the topic of Xaphan Tropism.
