This Saturday, some time after 8:30pm PST, I'll be standing on this stage, trying not to look nervous, as I read from my books.
You should come see me!
Well, if you're in or around Southern California, that is.
The event is called Shades & Shadows, and it's taking place at the deliciously named California Institute of the Abnormalarts in North Hollywood, California, this Saturday, March 15, starting at 8:30.
Other dark fantasy, horror, and sci fi writers will also be reading from their works, including Zach Morrissette, S.P. Hendrick, Becket, Chiwan Choi, and Cherisse Yanit-Nadal.
The subject matter can be dark and disturbing, I'm told, so this is probably an adults or older teens only event. I'm currently going through my books, looking for the most twisted things in them to see what to read. I'm not really a "dark" writer, but every story has a dark side, or else how can the light shine through?
It's $10 to get in, and they sell beer, wine, and a few spirits to those who wish to imbibe. I'll be drinking AFTER, most likely, in relief. Mostly I'm looking forward to hearing the other writers' material. Hanging with my fellow scribblers is always interesting.
Hope to see some of you there!
