All sorts of readings and book signings are in the works for both the Halloween season and the year to come!
First up is a return to Riley’s Pour House (215 East Main Street, Carnegie, PA 15106) — a great Irish pub with excellent food and a great spirit (in every sense of the word) — for a Storytelling night hosted by Pittsburgh horror writer, Lawrence C. Connolly. This event — slated for Sept. 30th at 8pm — promises to be a hoot, with a special focus on flash fiction stories, featuring myself, Stephanie Wytovich, Sheldon Higdon, Albert Wendland and other surprise guests on hand. Read all about it on Larry Connolly’s blog, where he includes a fun sound recording of my storytelling last May at a similar event.
You can always keep up with my future events here at gorelets.com (see The Events page), or get news in your inbox by subscribing to The Goreletter. There are several jaunts coming up for Halloween season, including a visit to the Frostburg Indie Press Fair in Maryland on October 11th and another fun reading scheduled for Rickert & Beagle Books in Pittsburgh on the afternoon of Oct 28th.
I look forward to them all. But I’m ESPECIALLY eager for the reading in Baltimore at the Terrault Contemporary Art Gallery on October 25th at 7pm… which is not only “Bizarro Halloween” night but also — wait for it… — the surprise launch party for the 20th Anniversary Edition of GRAVE MARKINGS in trade paperback! Sponsored by the publisher, Raw Dog Screaming Press (who will soon have preorders, so keep your eyes on their website), this promises to be a blast. Everyone’s invited. I’ll post more about this soon. You will dig the book cover and the new features it includes.
I’ve also got far future trips percolating and planning — from attending both World Horror Con 2015 (the con’s 25th anniversary party) AND WHC 2016 (Provo will rule) to teaching at Nightsun Writer’s Workshop in 2015 and an amazing DogCon 4 in Philadelphia to other surprise events I can’t wait to announce here! Stay tuned!
