10/6: Writer in Residence at The Booklover's Gourmet

Come to The Booklover's Gourmet at 55 East MAin Street, Webster MA, on October 6, from 2 to 4 pm and join me for a discussion about writing horror. A little bit of talking, a little bit of reading, and a little bit of Q&A should make for a whole lot of fun. 

10/12&10/14: Rock & Shock 2018

I'll be attending with the New England Horror Writers, October 12 and 14. There will be books. There will be fun. Details to follow.
Saturday, October 13th, 2018, from 10am to 4:30pm, at the Haverhill Public Library in Haverhill, MA, come see, meet, and mingle with more than SIXTY fantastic authors, artists, and filmmakers. There will be panel discussions, Halloween candy, and book debutsincluding the first public sale of my new novella from Bloodshot Books, Friends in High Places!

10/20‒10/21: Jerry's Fright Fair

Saturday (107) and Sunday (116), October 20 and 21, I'll be at Witch City Consignment at 301 Essex Street in Salem Massachusetts, where they'll have over thirty vendors specializing in the creepy and spooky! Come on by and you could go home with vampire fangs, horror t-shirts, halloween masks, and, oh, I don't know . . . maybe even books from a local horror author?

And, finally, I'll be spending Saturday and Sunday, October 27 and 28, at Derby Square in downtown Salem MA (an insane place to be that close to Halloween, so I've made out a will, just in case), taking part in the New England Horror Writers' Halloween Weekend Book Sale.
