Once again, I was asked to be part of Scary Story Time at Connooga. This is a panel that is a lot of fun to attend or participate in. Several panelists will share either real encounters they have had with things that are unexplained or frightening and as you will here, it is an opportunity for some writers to share their recent efforts.
I was joined on this panel by Hope Holloway an actress, writer, and the dark princess of Dark Princess Theatre, and Chad Sides, Connooga’s horror director. We had a good time, and I hope that you enjoy listening to these tales of terror, tragedy, and spine-tingling fun.

Hello everybody! I’m back from another great year at Connooga. First, let me start by apologizing to anyone that came out on Saturday to see me. I came down with a bad case of food poisoning late Friday night, and it knocked me out of commission for all of Saturday. Other than that, the show was great.
It’s always nice to get to see my con buddies and sit in on some great panels. I will be posting the audio from these panels throughout the week. I got to hang out with one of my favorite writers, Brian Keene, who is just the best guy if you ever have a chance to meet him. It was also great to see my other writer friends, Kenyon T. Henry and Philip Ligon.
My favorite part of course is getting to meet all the awesome people who come out to the show. I saw a lot of familiar faces and was able to meet a lot of new people as well. To everyone that came out this weekend and stopped by to say hello, thanks. Sorry, I wasn’t able to be there on Saturday. Check back everyday this week for the audio from the panels I was able to be a part of to hear some of the fun that we had. Thanks, and we’ll see you next year Connooga.
Hello all. I hope your new year is off to a fantastic start. I have several different irons in the fire that I will tell you about as the year goes on, but for now let me tell you about my first show this year.
I will be at Connooga from February 23-25 in Chattanooga, TN. If you’ve never been to this show, it is a lot of fun. Unlike a lot of shows this is multi-fandom, meaning comics, anime, pop culture, Game of Thrones, Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, cosplay, horror, scifi, and fantasy are all welcome and will be represented. I will have copies of my books for sale, and am super-excited to be at the show with Bram Stoker award winner Brian Keene.
I hope that you guys can make it out to this fun show, and I’ll post my panel schedule once it’s finalized. If you can’t make it out in February, don’t worry I have other shows that I’ll be doing this year but more on that as they get closer.
Good morning all, I wanted to thank everyone that came by at Atlanta Steampunk Exposition (ASE) and picked up a book. This was the show’s first year, and it was a great show. We saw a lot of great, top-tier cosplay, and I had the opportunity to meet some great independent authors like myself.
Here are just two examples of the cosplay that was on display.
If you are a fan of steampunk fiction, this was the con for you. ASE had a lot of great authors, and I was able to pick up some books. You can click on any of the covers below to pick up the books that I added to my library this weekend.
ASE 2017 was a success in my opinion. A lot of people attended and everyone appeared to have a great time. We have received confirmation that they will be doing a second show in 2018. If possible, I hope to be a part of it. Thank you very much to everyone that came out, if you weren’t able to make it, I hope to see you at another show sometime soon.
Hello faithful readers, I have two more shows before the end of the year.
The first is Christmas in Lithia. This show is on November 11-12 at Lithia Springs High School. It is a craft show featuring a variety of vendors, I will be there with copies of my books alongside my wife, who will have her prints and coloring books available. My sister-in-law will be joining us with her collection of handmade, geek-inspired bags and pouches. For more information, you can click here.
On November 18-19, I will be at the Atlanta Steampunk Exposition at the Atlanta Marriott at the Galleria. This promises to be a fun show. The weekend before Thanksgiving, this show will be debuting with a host of steampunk guests and authors. If you are a steampunk enthusiast, then I urge you to come out. You can click here for more information.
If you are looking for Christmas gifts that are not your average store bought merchandise, or you want some autographed books for yourself or someone special, then both of these shows are places to find them. Also, if you happen to be in the area on those dates and are looking for something to do, I think you’ll have a good time at either event. Hope to see you there.
Hello loyal readers, since we are not 15 days from October and the season of Halloween, I’m offering my e-short Friends Don’t Let Friends be Undead for free for today only. You can read the synopsis below and click on the cover to pick it up on Amazon.com. If you read it and like it, please leave a review on Amazon or your favorite review site.
Thanks for reading and keep coming back to find out where I’ll be and what I’m up to.
Synopsis: Three days after her husband dies, Lily is shocked to see him staring at her from outside her home. Calling on the four men he trusted most, Lily relies on them to place Steve back into his eternal rest. Guided by his journal, his friends will find that the man they loved has been replaced by a vicious fiend that will stop at nothing to sate its thirst for blood.
Hello faithful reader, I wanted to let you know where I’ll be over the next couple of months.
I will be doing a book signing at Hiram Books on Saturday, August 26th, from 4 – 8PM. If you’re in the area, please drop by, pick up your signed copy of Winston & Baum and the Trials of the Baba Yaga, and check out their selection of other books.
Labor Day weekend, September 1-4th, I will be helping my wife in the Dragoncon Art Show, where I will also have copies of my books available. If you happen to be attending, please come by and say ‘hey.’
On Saturday, October 7th, I will be at Revfest at Rev Coffee in Smyrna, GA. This is a fun show with plenty of good food and music.
I will post more updates as I add more appearances to my calendar. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you out there.
