Wrapping Up An Awesome Year with Skywalking Through Neverland

After planning for the holidays with Teresa Delgado and Ashley Eckstein on Fangirls Going Rogue and reminiscing Christmas past on Assembly of Geeks, it was fun to celebrate everything that was awesome about 2013 on Skywalking Through Neverland. I shared my excitement for the release of my novel Wynde, recalled some of my favorite memories of the past year, and pondered the possibilities for Star Wars fans in 2014 and beyond.

Many thanks to Sarah Woloski for supporting Athena’s Daughters Kickstarter after I discussed it on the show, and the happiest of holidays to all!

From the Holiday Special shownotes:

Audio Only! ‘Tis the sea­son to look back. We ask some active fans to review the highs and lows of their fan­dom from 2013. We talk to Fangasm’s Kristin Hack­ett, Dis­ney enthu­si­asts Lau­ren Cor­reia and Josh Kel­ley, Offi­cial Fan­Girl Tri­cia Barr, Robert Bapst from The Bald Solo Pod­cast and Shawn (ObiShawn) Crosby from the Holonet Radio’s Dock­ing Bay 94 Pod­cast. They run the gamut from Star Wars to comics and back around to Dis­ney. We take a brief inter­mis­sion to hear the soon-to-be clas­sic carol, “It’s Begin­ning To Look Like Life Day,” a Bing Crosby-esque take on a Christ­mas favorite. Then we look ahead to see what 2014 will bring fans.
