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.
D. Alan Lewis
Alexander S. Brown
Kenyon T. Henry
T. D. Raufson
Mandy & G.D. Burk
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.
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.
Thanks to everyone that stopped by and picked up a book, business card, or just said ‘hi.’ It’s always great to get to see everyone.
This year was a fantastic year. I was able to meet John G. Hartness, a writer that you should definitely check out if you haven’t already. His works include Bubba the Monster Hunter (a personal favorite), the Black Knight Chronicles, and Quincy Harker Demon Hunter, check out his fun works.
I also got to spend some time talking with Disney great Tad Stones, creator of Darkwing Duck, whose other credits include, Chip n’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, the Aladdin tv show, and the animated Hellboy feature films. Not only was he a lot of fun to talk to and get some background information, when I bumped into him at his table, he was drawing Darkwing himself. Now, I have this original piece in my collection.
I am the terror that flaps in the night.
And as always there was a lot of jaw-dropping costumes. Since I spent most of my time in the art show, I wasn’t able to take pictures of them as they walked through, but just google Dragoncon 2017, and you’ll find a lot of pictures I’m sure. To all my con buddies that I didn’t get to see this year, there will be other cons and there is always next year.
Thanks for reading, and keep checking back for other places where I’ll be.
It was an awesome time in Ringgold this weekend for the 2nd ever C1 Comicon. Great news, it did so well that they are planning on doing a 3rd. It was an honor to be able to be part of last year’s show and get to see it grow this year, and I’m willing to bet that next year is even better.
Last year, I got to hang out with some awesome people, and this year was no different. I was able to meet fellow author Kenyon T. Henry.
Kenyon and his debut novel “Choice of the Mighty”
Kenyon’s book can be found on Amazon by clicking the cover image below.
Back again this year was J.A. Toney.
J.A.’s booth, absent J.A.
You can get his novel Gabriel: Sinner by clicking on the cover below.
Of course, Eddie Price, #that3dguy, was back with his awesome artwork. Eddie’s always working on new 2d and 3d pieces, so definitely check him out.
This year at C1, they had a costume contest. There were really good costumes by some top-notch cosplayers.
There were a lot of great things to see and people to meet at C1. I can’t wait for next year.
Stay tuned to my blog for the latest in what I’m up to and where I’ll be. Until next time!
Hey guys, I’m back from another great Connooga and wanted to tell you guys some of the great things that I had an opportunity to participate in. First of all, let me say that I’ll be posting the audio from the panels that I participated in. So, don’t worry there will be more to come.
The con was a great show, and I can’t wait to go back next year. I was able to co-host a panel with Victoria Price, daughter of horror icon Vincent Price.
I also got to judge the 2017 Connooga Scream Queen contest alongside Martin Klebba from Scrubs, and The Pirates of the Caribbean films.
We saw a lot of amazing cosplay. One of the cosplay guests was Michael “Knightmage” Wilson. On Sunday, he came wearing the best Darkseid costume that I’ve ever seen.
You always bow before Darkseid.
All in all it was a great weekend, and I can’t wait until next year. Keep checking back to hear the panels that I participated on.
