Just wanted to send a quick heads-up to any readers out there who live in western NC/upstate SC or plan to be in the area next weekend . . . .
A week from tomorrow I will be a judge -- alongside, among others, actor Adam Minarovich (most horror fans will recognize him as "Ed Peletier", the wife-beating redneck in AMC's The Walking Dead) -- at the first annual Electric City Fright Film Festival.
Also present will be musical guests Valentine Wolfe, a great local gothic-cabaret act. It should be a really good time! Come on out, support local indie filmmakers and fellow horror fans, and maybe buy a book from me (I'll have a table at the event, and plan to bring along a few copies of each of my works).
