I'd love to see you!

October 13–15, I'll be joining the New England Horror Writers at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA for Rock and Shock, New England's premiere horror movie and music convention. The convention is open 5pm-10pm on Friday, 11am-9pm on Saturday and 11am-5pm on Sunday, and we'll be signing and selling books (at a discount!). Oh, and I will not be stalking special Rock and Shock guests Amy Steel, Kane Hodder, or Joe Knetter.


Saturday, October 21,  dozens of writers, artists, and filmmakers will gather at the public library in Haverhill, MA, for The Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival, where they'll celebrate weird and spooky fiction.

I will be one of them.

Panels all day, and a vendor room filled with local (and some not to local) authors with books for sale at prices you might not get anywhere else.

Special guests to include: Joe Hill, Brian Keene, Mary Sangiovanni, Christopher Golden, and James Moore


Super Megafest is happening in Marlborough, MA, October 2122, at the Royal Plaza Trade Center. Authors, comic artists, wrestlers, stars of stage and screen and more, all under one roof.

I'll be there Sunday with the New England Horror Writers, selling and signing books and sitting in on a panel—and if you're an aspiring writer who wonders what it's like to be edited, we'll show you for free. Just drop off a sample (about a thousand words, give or take, say three pages) at our table on Saturday (or early enough on Sunday) and pick them up Sunday at the end of the show!


Saturday and Sunday, the 28th and 29th of October, I'll be spending the days in downtown Salem Massachusetts, taking part in the New England Horror Writers' Halloween Book Sale. This particular part of Salem's Haunted Happenings is taking place in the Derby Square Open Market.  The market's open from 116, so come on down to our tent right in front of Salem's old town hall for some terrific book deals from some local authors.
