There is a lot going on from the time I get back from our trip to Europe in late September until January 2017. And I'm not just referring to the major project I'll be putting the final touches on and the book launch for my young adult post-apocalypse novel. I'll be all over the place, virtually and physically.
Spooky Empire at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. I will have a table there along with the other writers from the Dark Alley crew. I'll be signing books all weekend. I will also be on several of the author panels being held, but as of yet do not have a list of which panels and their times. I'll post more on that when I know for certain.
On Saturday, 15 October, from 2-4 PM, myself and fellow Dark Alley crew writers Melissa Gibbo and Tyson Hanks will be signing copies of our books at the Book Warehouse at 5250 International Drive in Orlando, Florida.
October will suck the blood out of you because I'm attending several vampire-related events throughout the month.
On Sunday, 9 October I will be participating in Facebook's three-day Vampire Authors Celebration, which is held from 7-9 October. I will be hosting my own segment of the show from 10-11PM EST.
Vampire Books for Blood charity event to benefit the American Red Cross and the Canadian Blood Services.
For the month, I will donate 50% of my net royalties from every on-line sale of The Vampire Hunters, Vampyrnomicon, Dominion, and The Vampire Hunters Omnibus to The American Red Cross. For a list if the other writers participating in this event, click here. Specific events during the month's charity drive include:
-- On 1 October, the charity event kicks off from 1-3PM EST with a two-hour Facebook party. This includes a virtual meet-and-greet with the authors, fun events, and a raffle for vampire books. This one you don't want to miss.
-- On 6 October, at 1PM EST, I will be holding a one-hour Q&A on the Vampire Books for Blood's Facebook page to answer any questions you might have about The Vampire Hunters trilogy and writing in general. And yes, there will be prizes. But only for those who participate, so start preparing some tough questions.
On 6 November, I'll be attending a book signing event at the Rabbit Hole Book Store at 763 W. Montrose Street in Clermont, Florida. The time is to be determined. Fellow Dark Alley crew writers John Catapano and Tyson Hanks will also be there.
Clermont Comic Con at the Clermont Performing Arts Center in Clermont, Florida. If you haven't attended the CCC yet you should. It's a great convention with plenty of big-name guests, but at the moment it's small enough so you get plenty of face time with the celebrity guests.
Finally, on 28 January 2017 I'll be attending the the Dreadfest 2017 event at the W.T. Bland Public Library in Mount Dora, Florida. This is a first-run event that promises to be fun and informative. Although the event is still in its formative stages, the planned events include presentations on writing or elements of dark fiction (horror, dark fantasy, thriller, paranormal romance, etc.), horror/dark fiction author panels, and possibly even a nano-fiction writing contest.And of course, I'll be signing books. This promises to be a fun family-friendly event, so mark it on your calendar now.
That's it for the moment. I'll remind you all as the dats grow closer, and will update the postings as events change or more info is needed. So keep on reading so I can keep on writing,.
