9/14-9/15: Granite State Comicon

2019 Granite State Comicon


Saturday and Sunday, September 14 and 15, I'll be spending some time behind the sales table with Scott Goudsward and Tony Tremblay. Come on by and shoot the breeze, or the shit (your preference). We'll be there all day, both days.


. . . Unless, of course, one of us has wandered away to find the booth selling the brownies.


Because brownies.

Rock and Shock

Friday and Sunday, October 11 and 13, I'll be sitting in at the New England Horror Writers' booth at Rock and Shock 2019, at the Fleet Center, in Worcester MA. Saturday the 12th, I'll be in Haverhill (see below).

If you like weird stuff and oddities, horror books, horror movies, and music, this is the place for you!


The 5th Annual Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival

October 12, I'll be at the Haverhill Public Library with more than 70 other authors, taking part in the 5th Annual Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival. Admission is free, there will be massive deals on books from more authors than you can shake a stick at, and the event runs from 10 am to 4:30 pm. I may only be there half the day, as there are too many authors to run all of them at the same time―more on that as things develop.

11/9: Book Fiend Readers Fest

Book Fiend Readers Fest 2019


This'll be a totally new event for me, and I'm not sure what to expect. I have volunteered for panels and readings, though I haven't heard anything definite on that front yet.


I'll keep you in the loop. But I plan to have fun at this one.
