What's New

Mar 7, 2022 - On Saturday, March 25, 2023, the Horror Writers Association Virginia Chapter and I, as moderator, will have a panel, WRITING SCARY IS THE HOT NEW ITEM, at 8:30 - 9:20pm, in the CREATOR CAVE (E22A-B) at GalaxyCon Richmond. The convention will be held at the Richmond Convention Center downtown. You can find our panel and every else on Saturday here. We're still trying to get a fourth panelist. So far, the other authors/publishers I can confirm are D. Alexander Ward and Maria Badillo.

Panel Description: Horror authors and members of the Horror Writers Association talk about writing horror and why scary stories are becoming hot fiction in genre writing.

In addition to being an author vendor at Authorcon 2 (presented by Scares That Care), I will also be doing a reading from my new horror story included in the Vinyl Cuts anthology (to be released March 31st). The reading is scheduled for Friday evening, at Authorcon 2 at 7:45pm – 8:30pm (Second Floor, Room 11). I am sharing the limelight with author Anton Cancre. And on Saturday, April 1st, I will be on a panel of Cryptids at 3:30pm – 4:30pm (Second Floor, Room 16).

About it and who is on the panel: Cryptids– Bigfoot, Mothman, and their kin are experiencing a resurgence in horror fiction. C.W. Briar (moderator), Bitter Karella, Laurel Hightower, Pamela K. Kinney, and Dan Franklin discuss the trend and some of their favorites.

Mar 2, 2023 - Werewolves, Dogmen, and Other Shapeshifters Stalking North America can now be found on Target online. For more information or to purchase, click here.

If you prefer to shop at Walmart online, this link will take you to a list of all my books: Shop Walmart.

Feb 23, 2023 - I am excited to announce I will be doing a book signing of both Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations and Haunted Virginia: Legends, Myths, and True Tales at Colonial Williamsburg! I was last there was 2019. It will be at the Revolutions Store in their Visitor Center on May 27th. Check Appearances at a Glance on this page for the times and address. Come check out the historic attraction, get a signed book of mine, and take a ghost tour there at night. Perfect start to Memorial Day Weekend.

I will also be a vendor at ParaCon at Ferry Plantation Saturday, May 20th. For times, their address, and more, see Appearances at a Glance.

Feb 22, 2023 - I will be moderating a panel at GalaxyCon in Richmond called WRITING SCARY IS THE HOT NEW ITEM. It will begin at 8:30pm on Saturday, March 25th. Check Appearances at a Glance on this page for more information, so you can buy passes and see who else will be there.

Feb 15, 2023 - Scary Dairy Press has sent an email to the contributors of the new horror anthology, Vinyl Cuts. It should be released toward the end of March 2023 and includes my story, Gotta Get out of This Place. When we get the cover art and anything else about the book, I will share it here.

I will have two book signings in Hampton Roads Saturday, May 13th. Both bookstores are Book Exchanges. The first one is in Norfolk, the second in Virginia Beach. It will be for my nonfiction cryptid book, Werewolves, Dogmen, and Other Shapeshifters Stalking North America, and if I can get some copies of the new horror anthology, Vinyl Cuts, I will have that one too.

I will also be at Horror Writers Association's StokerCon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania June 15-18th. For more information about the book signings and StokerCon, check Appearances at a Glance.

I can tell you, I heard the Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel where StokerConwill be held has sold out of all their rooms. So, if you're not from the area, check other hotels and hurry, because there is to be a big Taylor Swift concert on Friday and Saturday, so they expect most hotels to be sold out.

I will be doing a book signing last Saturday night in October for Rosewell Plantation in Gloucester, Virginia during their ghost tour. When the docent in charge provides more info, I will post it to Appearances at a Glance.

Feb 2, 2023 - I will be interviewed on Wednesday, March 2nd, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on The Witching Hour on Twitch TV. thewitchinghour. If I get more information, I will share it here, my Facebook and other social media.

Dec 29, 2022 - I wanted to let my readers know that I will be a vendor at the Jingle Bell Bazaar again Saturday, December 2, 2023, which is held at Ecoff Elementary School. For more information, like address and more, check Appearances at a Glance on this page to your right.

Nov 17, 2022 - I will be doing the Historic Tuckahoe Plantation's Holiday Market on Sunday, December 11th (with Sunday, December 18th as the rain date in case of inclement weather.). The market location will be on the South Lawn of the historic plantation house. Check Appearances at a Glance to your right for the time, address, and anything else.

My horror vampire poem, Crimson Rush, was accepted for Horror Curated: Bloody Tea, which will be released in February 2023. The new ezine just debuted this month, and you can find out about their first issue, Haunted Holidays, and more here.

Oct 26, 2022 - I will be a vendor at Tidewater Horror Convention next year, September 8, 9, and 10. For the address of the new hotel, plus link to their website (memberships for next year are now for sale), check Appearances at a Glance to the right of this page.

Oct 26, 2022 - Great news! Blame It On the Pumpkin, the anthology that includes my story, Pumpkin Hollow, was released yesterday, October 25th. Click here to see the links to buy the paperback, and/or the two eBooks available on Nook and Kobo.

Sep 20, 2022 - I am excited to announce that I will be doing a book signing at the Barnes and Noble in Fredericksburg, Virginia, with other authors of horror and paranormal on Saturday, October 29th, beginning at 10:00 a.m. You can find the address and their phone number of the bookstore at Appearances at a Glance to the right of this page, with no ending time, as the bookstore is allowing us authors to decide if we want to stay there for 2 hours or until we sell out of our books.

If you cannot make it that day, you can call the number and pay over the phone and have a copy of one or more of my books signed by me. I am not sure if all my regional Virginia ghost books, along with Werewolves, Dogmen, and Other Shapeshifters Stalking North America and Blame It on the Pumpkin anthology, will be available or not. So, call the bookstore close to the 29th, if you wish to know.

Sep 7, 2022 - I have an article, Scarecrows: Scary or Not? up at Haunt Jaunts. Check it out Scarecrows: Scary or not?
