This past weekend was Hallowcon. It was a great show and a lot of fun. I was honored to be among a cadre of wonderful authors. Please click on their names to visit their sites.

Each of these writers have books that I think will work for most of you no matter your tastes. We have horror, splatter, noir, urban fantasy, fantasy, science fiction, and steampunk, so please check out and support these great authors.
I also had the opportunity to meet Josh “TKO” Turner and his tag-team wrestling partner Scott Lane. These guys have appeared in multiple films and tv shows as well as being professional wrestlers. What is also amazing is that they are part of two different charities: Pops for Patients and Fighting for Autism. Both of these are really good charities. Please check them out to see if you can help either of these causes and check out the two guys championing them as well.
Lastly and far from least, I had the opportunity to meet cosplayer, Alice Infinity. She was amazingly nice and continued to impress me with the versatility of her cosplay. Every time I saw her, she seemed to be in a different costume. Please check out her site.
Hallowcon was a great show and a lot of fun. I can honestly say that it was one of the most friendly and welcoming cons I’ve been to. Thanks for having me and hope to see you again next year.
I will be posting the audio from my panel from Hallowcon here in a few days.
Everyone have a safe and happy Halloween, and keep checking back for more updates.
I’m back and recovered from the fun that was Scares that Care weekend. Even though the event is over, you can still learn more about or donate to Scares that Care by clicking here.
A big thank you to everyone that came by and said hey or picked up a book. I had the pleasure to meet a lot of great authors and was able to meet Adrienne King, killer of Mrs. Voorhees (original Friday the 13th) and Jason’s first victim (Friday the 13th Part 2).
Doesn’t look bad to have taken a screwdriver to the head.
As with almost every con, awesome cosplay was on display. From current, classic, and just plain fun, the costumes on display at Scares that Care was great to behold. See the sampling below.
This guy was a lot of fun.
The gremlin was a working puppet.
I’ve never seen Jamie Lloyd from the end of Halloween 4 cosplay.
Carl Kolchak, a classic icon.
We all floated at Scares that Care with Pennywise & Georgie
A big thanks to Brian Keene, a phenomenal writer who just happened to be honored this year for his contributions to the charity. He told me about the show and it was a lot of fun to get to go.
That’s a wrap for this show, but I’ve got more appearances to come. Next stop, Dragoncon where I will have copies of the Winston & Baum novels at my cover artists booth in the Art Show.
Please keep checking back for where I’ll be and what I’m working on.
Hello, faithful readers! I wanted to post a quick note to let everyone know that I will be attending Scares that Care weekend on August 3rd through August 5th in Williamsburg, VA. I am really excited to be there with some iconic actors and writers of horror. The real reason that I think this show is great is they are scaring away childhood disease and illness.
This is a really worthy cause, and I hope that anyone who can make it out to Williamsburg, VA that weekend will come by, but if not, you can visit their website to learn more about the charity and make a donation.
Hope to see you there. If you can’t make it, keep checking back here for more information on where I’ll be popping up next.
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.
