First, I want to say a big thanks to everyone that came out this past Saturday to Hiram Books. I saw some familiar faces and a lot of new ones. Thanks to each and every one of you who came out.
Now, on to what you really wanted to know. I will be at my wife/cover artist’s table in the Dragoncon Art Show in the Hyatt if you want to swing by and pick up a book or art, or if you just want to drop by and say hi. Below is a map of the Art Show showing where you can find me.
Hope to see you there, but if you can’t find time to swing by (which I totally understand, Dragoncon is huge), I hope you have a great con and a safe Labor Day.
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.
I wanted to let everyone know that I will be at Connooga this weekend. You can find me in the dealer’s section with my cover artist.

I look forward to getting to meet some of you awesome people this weekend.
Hello all and Happy New Year! I hope you all had good seasonal festivities. Now I know some of you are most likely still cradling a few gift cards looking for the perfect purchase to make with them or have received Kindles and are looking for the perfect book to start your paperless existence. Good news, I have some ideas that just might prove to be what you are looking for.
I just so happen to have books available, on Kindle and in paperback. Go on click the link and see if this isn’t what you are looking for Author’s Page.
If you are more of an epic fantasy reader, guess what I have just the authors for you. JK Barber is a husband and wife author team with their first fantasy series complete and the first book of their second series out. Why don’t you take a walk through Aronshoe or Mervidia here: JK Barber’s Author Page.
Maybe you aren’t a genre specific reader, maybe you like short stories. If this sounds like you, then check out my friend A.J. Scott’s stories and see if he doesn’t have at least one to interest you. With his wide range of themes, he should be able to at least give you a quick, enjoyable read. For more information visit: A.J. Scott: Man, Myth, Frawg.
Hopefully, this will help with your gift card/Kindle dilemma. For those of you near Chattanooga, Caralyn (my cover artist: www.mysticreflections.com) and I will be attending this year’s Connooga running from February 27 through March 1. Look forward to seeing you there, until next time.
Hello out there. In case anyone is going to be in the Powder Springs area this Saturday, December 13, you should stop by the Bookworm used & rare bookstore. I will be there along with another author, selling and signing copies of both Winston & Baum books. It’s my last appearance of the year, and your last chance to see my smiling face in person for 2014. Also, autographed books make great Christmas presents, especially when you can get them personalized to a person of your choosing. One guy had me make one out to “Pookie,” so when I say a person of your choosing, I mean it. Or if you wanted, I could make it out to your pet, if you have dog or cat that can read, please bring it in, I’d love to know what it thinks of my work.
If you won’t be able to make it out to the signing, I will leave a few copies at the Bookworm and you can contact them about purchasing them. Although if you really want to get personalized autographed copies and help out an awesome cause, please visit this auction site. Some dear friends of mine are looking to add a precious little life to their home through adoption. You can pick up an author’s pack in their auction. It contains, a copy of each book autographed to a person of your choosing, an 8×10 print of each cover and a set of bookmarks. All this for starting at $20.00. My cover artist has also donated some postcard sets, and a sculpture to their auction. Julie isn’t just getting donations either, she is a fantastic quilter and has many wonderful quilts for auction as well. So if you can, please donate to this worthy cause and help them share their love.
Please keep checking in for more fun stuff that I have going on and you never know, a fun little holiday adventure may appear here very soon.
Remember, it’s the turkey or us!
Thanksgiving is upon us and the start of the holiday shopping season will soon commence. However, Saturday, November 29th is shop local day. With that in mind I thought I’d encourage you all to shop at some of our local retailers and pick up an autographed copies of the Winston & Baum steampunk adventures. Autographed copies of the first book Winston & Baum and the Secret of the Stone Circle are available in Powder Springs at the Bookworm. You can get autographed copies of both books, as well as a lot of other autographed works by local authors at the Hiram Bookstore. So please drop by and support these local businesses that are so willing to support local authors and artists.
If you are waiting for Cyber Monday instead, then you can shop independent. You can locate my works on the current fiction page above or click here. My cover artist has a store where she sales her handmade polymer clay sculptures and prints of her work, you can find her here. A friend of mine is making purses and bags, you can gather these goodies here.
So as you go and spend your hard earned money on goodies for those that you love and care about, or that you just buy out of obligation for, please help support local merchants and independent artists and authors. Thanks for reading and keep checking back for fun stuff.
Hello out there. Sorry I haven’t written in a little bit. Ever since Dragoncon things have been a bit hectic. I’m settling down in a new job, so that takes some time. Also I’m currently working a few new stories.
I know that’s what you want to hear about. So I’ll go ahead and tell you. Friedkin’s Curse: A Werewolf Tale of Terror is currently at the editors and I hope to be releasing an updated Kindle version as well as a paperback edition. More details on that as it happens.
I’ve been talking for a little bit now two short stories that I’m hoping to have out next year. Currently, the vampire short that I hope to have out next month is in the hands of my Alpha reader. The second Richard Rex story will be sent, once I’ve received the vampire story back. I would give you more regarding titles, but I haven’t settled on the right one just yet.
For those fans of Lollipop Jones & Pecan Sandie, you can expect to see more of the daring detective duo next month. I don’t want to give away any spoilers on this one, let me just say this is by far the biggest adventure I’ve planned for these two. So keep checking back to see what craziness they get swept up in.
Not to mention, I’m making a run through the third Winston & Baum novel so that I can have it ready by next year. So as you can see, it’s a busy time.
With your support, we’ll make the next 12 months, the most productive that the radioactive rabbit has seen yet. Thanks for stopping by and keep checking back for release informaiton on the aforementioned projects.
Hey, I’d like to give a big welcome to everyone that we got to meet at Dragoncon this year. It was a great year for my cover artist and myself. She sold a lot of great pieces to people and I only brought home 1 book, so that’s great. To all of you who picked up a book from me, thank you and it was very nice to get to meet you all. If you did not get a book, but are interested in electronic copies for your Kindle, you can find them on my site under the Winston & Baum page or Current Fiction tab.
Because we had such a stellar weekend and I got to talk to so many of the awesome people that attended the convention, I will be making a special announcement tomorrow. So check back for more information and thanks for looking us up.
Hello everyone. I just wanted to drop a message to everyone about two fun things going on during Labor Day weekend.
First, there is Dragoncon, the Southeast’s largest Pop Culture convention. Taking up the five hotels near the Peachtree Center Downtown, Dragoncon offers a great deal of different things to different people. There is a vendors building for those that want to shop, or you can check out one of the numerous panels. If you are looking for books and authors, there will be plenty of both available at the con. Even some of your favorite people from the world of comics and movies. Don’t believe me, then just check out their guest’s page.
I will be at Dragoncon helping my talented wife in the Dragoncon Art Show. You can also pick up autographed copies of my Winston & Baum books at her table. So if you’re in town stop by and say hey, or pick some art and books.
If you aren’t into the whole pop culture convention scene, but want something fun to do, then go check out the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The AJC Decatur Book Festival is the largest independent book festival in the country and one of the five largest overall. You can meet a lot of great authors or purchase books from any number of booksellers. If you do decide to go, please stop by and see my friends J.K. Barber. This husband and wife duo have written a great fantasy series called the Chronicles of Aronshoe, and have just released the first volume of their next series, set in a mermaid society. They’ll also have copies of their individual titles. So please stop by and say hey to them, or if you can’t but are interested in their books, just click the cover below.
I hope that you can at least make it out to one of these great events. For more information about Dragoncon visit: www.dragoncon.org. For the AJC Decatur Book Festival visit: https://www.decaturbookfestival.com/2014/index.php.
I just wanted to write and tell everyone that could not make it out that last Friday night at the Hiram Bookstore was a lot of fun. We got to meet some really nice people, and sold some books. For those that are interested in an autographed copy of either Winston & Baum and the Secret of the Stone Cirle (Book 1) or Winston & Baum and the 7 Mummies of Sekhmet (Book 2), several autographed copies of each book are still available at the Hiram Bookstore.
I would like to thank Lexus and Bryan, the bookstore staff, for taking such good care of us and providing us with a nice shop in which to introduce Winston & Baum to a new community. Also a big thank you to Cheeseburger Bobby’s, Yogli Mogli, and Gater Games in Hiram. These nearby businesses allowed us to pass out fliers, business cards, and bookmarks to their patrons.
Please keep checking back to see where I’ll be next, and if you are near Hiram, drop into the Hiram Bookstore and pick up your autographed copy today. Already have an autographed copy drop by anyway, it’s a nice bookstore that I would highly recommend. Thanks for checking in and hope to be in a bookstore near you soon.
