As I sat down this morning and looked through my calendar, I realized I had several events coming up over the next six months, some of which I have not posted about yet.
15 August -- Incident on Ironstone Lane: and Other Horror Stories, my non-zombie-themed anthology, will be released for Kindle only. Stay tuned for a cover reveal and information about the content.
October -- Throughout the month myself and several other vampire writers will be participating in the Vampire Books 4 Blood charity drive. I'll be blogging about this in more detail later, but in short 50% of the net profit of any copy of The Vampire Hunters trilogy sold on line in October will be donated to the American Red Cross.
7-9 October -- I'll be attending Spooky Empire at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida along with a group of other highly-talented writers. The up-to-date list of celebrity guests and writers attending this year can be found here.
15 October -- From 1:30 to 2:00 PM CST (2:30 to 3:00 PM EST), I will be attending Tj Weeks' book launch for his latest zombie novel The Horror Squad: Book 3.
20 November -- I'll be making my second appearance at Clermont Comic Con at the Performing Arts Center in Clermont, Florida. This year's guests include comic book creators George Perez and Chuck
Dixon, voice actor Dimitri Diatchenko of Fallout 4, and Tyler Cravens of
Netflix's Bloodline and Sleepy Hollow. This convention is getting more popular as years go by, but at the moment it's still small enough for fans to meet and get some face time with their favorite celebrities.
January 2017 (TBD) -- On either 14 or 28 January, I will be attending Dreadfest 2017 at the W.T. Bland Public Library in Mount Dora, Florida. This one-day event is designed to showcase the dark side of fiction writing and includes writing contests, panels, and book signings. I'll be posting more on this event later in the year.
