Come see me at Fan Expo, this Friday Sept 4

Is it Fan Expo time already? Yup! This year’s convention will not have the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear, unfortunately. But I will be attending as part of the horror programming, selling and signing books, plus hosting a special spooky reading event.

Boo! Scary Stories Read AloudFriday, September 4 at 11:45am in Room 705 of the North Building, I’ll be reading one of my fave scary folk tales, from my own hometown. Plus, I’ve assembled a fantastic crew of fellow readers and invite you to join us for an hour of good ole fashion scary storytelling. Shopping and autograph hunting is fun but I always appreciate when there is culture to discover at a fan con so am trying to bring some to others. Friday is much less bananas in terms of line-ups and crowds than the weekend, so it’s a great time to visit. I will also be selling and signing my books in the horror vendors section, at booth #5431. I’m only there for the Friday, So if you’re planning to get your geek on this long weekend, make sure to come that day and come find me!

 

First Vampire Book Signing and more at Fan Expo Weekend, August 22-25

Who wants to get my new book? Signed and everything?! Who wants to listen to me talk about vampires and the horror business?

Come and find me at the Festival of Fear, part of Fan Expo, Canada’s biggest gathering of fanboys and fangirls. Once again I’ll be participating in and moderating panels with my colleagues from Rue Morgue Magazine.  Even better, this will be the first place you can buy a copy of How To Kill a Vampire!
