What’s New Wednesday: July

I had mentioned a while back that I would be a vendor at the Mad Monster Party Horror Convention in Glendale, AZ. This was on July 4th weekend, and I had a blast. I got to meet some celebrities and I sold some books. With this being the third time I’ve sold books at a convention, I think I have a nice base line for how much I’ll sell each time. That’s some valuable information for people on a budget. I made many new friends as well. Some I know I’ll see at next year’s convention and some I may see at other conventions.

Speaking of other conventions, I’m working on the paperwork for YumaCon. This is the comic convention in Yuma, AZ. This convention will be on October 2 and 3 this year. This convention is managed by City of Yuma officials which means there’s more paperwork. I’m awaiting answers to some questions before I can move forward. This convention will help me verify the base line of sales I mentioned earlier. I plan to debut a couple new bookmarks at this convention as well. If you didn’t already know, I sell bookmarks too.

I never did an official product launch for my bookmarks, but I intend to as I roll out new designs. At the Mad Monster Party convention, I showed of my spooky collection of bookmarks. These are all Halloween themed and you can purchase them in my Shop if you’re interested.

I’ll be at the Mad Monster Party in July

If you’re not familiar with Mad Monster Party, I suggest you check out their website. This is a horror themed convention and I’ll have a vendor table. It’s happening in Glendale, AZ on the Fourth of July weekend. They have a great list of celebrities who will be in attendance. It looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. What will I be doing there? At my vendor table, I’ll be selling copies of my book “The Morbid Museum,” a collection of short horror stories framed around a curator and museum of death.

I’ll have paperback copies and a few hardbound copies. I will also have an exclusive collection of spooky haikus available for those spooky poetry fans. “Haunting Haikus” has 23 haikus along with some images. It’s a quick read but fun. I will also have a few bookmarks for sale. These will have spooky themes like skulls, pumpkins, and witches. I’ll post some photos once I have everything collected and packaged. I’m still waiting on a few deliveries. I’ll post more details as I get them. If you’ll be in Glendale, AZ on the Fourth of July weekend, come to the Mad Monster Party, find my table, and say hi. I’m looking forward to hanging with my fellow horror enthusiasts. 

What’s New Wednesday: May

The biggest change we have on the blog this month is everything returning to normal. I will continue sharing my photography with Snapshot Saturdays. Wacky Wednesdays are back. And I continue reviewing the many book of supernatural horror and magical realism on Coffee and Contemplation every Sunday. I also have a new serialized short story coming every Friday in May. It’s titled “Keys Reef” and is about a lobster and an alligator that live together. I also have some exciting news coming about new stuff I’ll be selling in my store to include books and bookmarks.

I’ll share in more detail about the Mad Monster Party Convention which I’ll be attending in July. I’ll have a vendor table and will be selling books and spooky bookmarks. I’ll write a special post soon providing more details about this and some of the things I’ll be selling. I’m also trying to get a small collection of stories put together that I can offer as a free download when people sign up for my mailing list. I’m excited about that and I hope many of you are as well. I still have a lot of things to finalize before that is ready. There’s a lot of fun stuff going on and I hope you’re looking forward to is as much as I am.
