Happy Halloween... tour

Okay, call me slow, but it only just recently occurred to me that as a author of the supernatural I will never again be able to spend another Halloween at home.

I was wondering why I was suddenly getting so many appearance requests that I was having to turn things down right and left - and then I realized... duh... it's October.

Oh, I'm not complaining. It's going to be great to be in a different place every Halloween from now on. It's most exceptionally cool that this Halloween I will be in Salem. Yes, the Salem Witch Trials Salem. That's going to be some eye candy, for sure.

I'm also looking forward to some events in Stephen King territory (Maine) and the World Fantasy Con, this year in Saratoga Springs, NY - and the con theme is my favorite subject: Ghosts and Revenants.

But most thrilling of all is being included in so many library lists, this month, like "Ten Tales of Terror" and "Ghost Stories for the Ages". That definitely makes my Halloween - on the road or off.

Here's a list of my upcoming events, and at the bottom a trailer for THE HARROWING, out in paperback this weekend.
