If you've read LOST SOULS (Demon Trappers #8) Simon and Katia go to TrapperCon! Here's more about that event along with some glorious graphics created by the talented students at Kennesaw State University's marketing program. A shoutout to Erick, Zoe, Lorren, Lawrence, and Josh for their efforts. It was a blast working with these young folks.
DISCLAIMER: TrapperCon (the actual convention) doesn't exist. Maybe someday, but not right now. Of course it'd be in Atlanta and here's what it might look like.
We even have PROGRAMMING!
Beginning today, Funk-n-Fiction is hosting a short story event that runs through Halloween. Thirty authors (including myself) will offer up suitably creepy (or funny) stories and DeviantArt artists are showcasing their work with each story! For more information, and to be part of the prize giveaway, check out www.FunkNFiction.com
My story--The Cat with No Name--will be posted on Oct. 28th at 2 p.m. Eastern Time. I hope you enjoy it!
Later this week I'll be hopping a plane to Atlanta to attend the Moonlight and Magnolias Conference hosted by the Georgia Romance Writers. These are my peeps and it'll be great fun to catch up with them. The Craft Speaker for the conference is none other than Mollie Traver who has served as editor for a number of my Demon Trappers books as well as my Chandler Steele series. I haven't see Mollie since 2012 and I hope to take her on a private, guided tour of all the Demon Trappers' sites in Atlanta, including Oakland Cemetery. Since the poor lady had to fight her way through all that prose she might as well see where those scenes were set.
I'll be taking part in the (free admission, open to the pubic) booksigning on Saturday so if you want to chat, or an autographed copy of VALIANT LIGHT, come find me!
I'll try to post an update while I'm in Atlanta. I know I'm going to roast -- the humidity is 90%+ (it's in the 30s and 40s here in Porto) so air conditioning will be my friend. I will definitely be posting updates on Facebook so be sure to check there for any interesting news. Later, folks!
DragonCon 2018 has begun and I'm actually missing this massive event more than I'd expected. This is where 85K of your closest nerd friends gather for five days in downtown Atlanta. Besides a glorious parade, there are costumes, costume mashups (like the mind-boggling one above), zillions of programming tracks and AUTHORS. Yes, in the wild. Real ones. You can talk to them, even.
If you're not in Atlanta (like me), the easiest way to track the fun without sore feet is searching for the hashtag #Dragon2018 on either Twitter or Facebook. Or watching the official DragonCon page (again on FB). The pictures are always incredible so that's what I'll be doing while missing Atlanta and my peeps.
