Scares That Care Weekend 2015 and Where to Find Me

It’s time again for the second annual Scares That Care convention in Williamsburg, VA. If you’re in the area, this is obviously the place to be for all things dark and horrific. There’s merchandise, costuming, makeup artists, authors, filmmakers, musicians…It’s just a really excellent convention AND it’s for a great cause.

I will be there. Arriving sometime mid-day on Friday. Unfortunately that means missing AN EVENING WITH BRIAN KEENE on Thursday. Which bums be out a great deal.

FRIDAY, at a minimum, I will be attending readings by KEVIN LUCIA and JACOB HADDON from 6:45-7:30.

SATURDAY, 10AM, I will be doing a reading along with JAY WILBURN. Who’s going first? No idea. I guess Jay and I will arm wrestle or have a thumb war for it. Anyway, please come! No matter how hungover from Friday night you are. I’ll be reading from my action-horror-redneck-superheroes novel, BLOOD SAVAGES, maybe a little something else, too, and Jay will be reading from God-knows-what. He’s got about a zillion awesome books and stories out. Seriously.

SUNDAY, 11-NOON, I will be on the panel, “Writers Groups in a Digital Age” along with TIM WAGGONER, RONALD MALFI, JACOB HADDON, PAMELA K. KINNEY and moderated by the HWA VA’s own chapter head, DELONA SOUTHERLAND. Hopefully me talk good that day.

I will be seeing other panels and hopefully meeting/chatting with folks like ARMAND ROSAMILIA, JEFF STRAND, F. PAUL WILSON, THOMAS MONTELEONE, KELLI OWEN, BRIAN KEENE, EDWARD LEE…I don’t know, man. It’s just silly the amount of great authors coming to the convention. It’s going to be great!

The rest of the time will be spent in the main vendor room, bouncing around between the Horror Writers Association – Virginia Chapter table and the Hazardous Press table. Vendor rooms are open from 5pm – 10pm Friday night, 10-am-8pm Saturday, and 10am-4pm Sunday. At both tables, I will have the following books available:


I’ll need to remember to bring my personal copy of SHADOWS OVER MAIN STREET so I can get KEVIN LUCIA to sign it, too.

Celebrity guests, vendors, shows, GWAR, films, makeup wars, scaryoke…it’s just…go check out the details at and then head on to the convention. It’s going to be incredible!

I very much hope to see you there!
