ARE YOU READY FOR ANTHOCON NEXT WEEKEND?

6 Nov

It’s here already! I’ll be at the New England Horror Writers’ table at AnthoCon: The Anthology 2011 Conference Friday, November 11 – Sunday, November 13 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at the Best Western Wynwood Hotel & Suites.

To get a sense of why this first annual conference is so unique, you can read my article up on the NEHW blog here: http://nehwnews.wordpress.com/2011/10/04/get-in-on-the-ground-floor-at-first-annual-anthocon-november-11-13/

Joining me at AnthoCon at the NEHW and/or Epitaphs tables will be writers Stacy Longo (Dark Things IV, Hell Hath No Fury), L.L. Soares (Cinema Knife Fight), Scott Goudsward (Shadows Over New England), Tracy Carbone (The Man of Mystery Hill), Danny Evarts (Shroud Magazine)—and many, many more. This is one of those occasions where it looks like a lot of the gang is going to be there, so don’t miss us—come pick up your bleak winter reading fare.

For me, the highlight of the weekend will be getting to meet Literary Mayhem’s Peter Schwotzer (www.literarymayhem.com), who’s commissioned my short story “Growlers” for a feature in January 2012, in person. We’ve been corresponding for awhile now and it’s going to be great to put a name with a face.

There are really so many awesome panels, guests, and other activities going on at this event that you really should just visit the website for complete details: http://anthocon.com/

Already seen Paranormal Activity 3? Then you’ve got only one more thing to do this weekend—visit me at the 9th Annual Open Air Market and Festival at Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown, CT Sunday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

I’ll be there signing books and socializing with New England Horror Writers Association members Stacey Longo, Rob Watts, Kasey Shoemaker, and Dan Foley. Don’t miss your chance to pick up some signed spooky reads for Halloween!

The event will feature Connecticut grown or made products, entertainment throughout the day, horse-drawn carriage rides, face painting, and docent-lead tours of the mansion (which I hope I get the opportunity to do!). It’s held at Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate, 421 Wadsworth Street, Middletown,CT 06457.

Thank you JENNIFER STRICKLER COLE for this great shot! Left to right, Jennifer, Stacey Longo Harris, Kristi Petersen Schoonover, and Jayne Mackel.

Why Ghosts Love Me at St. Peter’s Masonic Lodge #21 inNew Milford,Connecticut was a huge success!

Nathan Schoonover of A&E’s Extreme Paranormal, Travel Channel’s Paranormal Challenge and The Ghostman & Demon Hunter Show was on hand for spooky stories and Halloween fun. The presentation included ghostly stories and paranormal evidence with guest speakers Nicole Hall and Angel Ortiz of Connecticut Soul Seekers, Terri J Garofalo of Entities-R-Us—ghost hunting comics—Donna Parish-Bischoff of Indy Paranormal and Frank Todaro of The Invisible World Radio. I was there signing copies of my book, Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole—Tales from Haunted Disney World, and was joined by fellow horror short fiction writer Stacey Longo, also of New England Horror Writers Association.

Proceeds from all sales and admission went toward the upkeep of the historical St. Peter’s Lodge.
