Scares That Care – A Guest Blog Takeover by Jay Wilburn

Happy to be on D. Alxander Ward’s blog. I appreciate him hosting me. There were many great writers that got their start on this blog. I believe Earnest Hemmingway guest blogged here once from Havana. Lovecraft guest blogged here many times until he offended too many people and was banned. Bukowski once wrote a blog post here that was just the F word repeated over and over in different fonts. I may have the facts wrong, but I’m still glad to be guest posting.

I’m also glad to be taking part in Scares That Care Weekend Convention this coming Friday, July 24th through Sunday, July 26th. It will be at the Doubletree in Williamsburg Viginia. All those facts I have correct.

I’ll be hosting the Hazardous Press table there and I appreciate that publisher making my appearance there possible. I look forward to sharing the table and the weekend with other great authors. In addition to the great authors will be D Alexander Ward, T Fox Dunham, Armand Rosamilia, and many more. We’ll all be pimping our books there.

I’ll have Dead Song book 1 and hard copies of the CD too. It will be interesting to see how well this unusual combination catches the eye in public.

D. Alexander Ward and I will be sharing a reading time Saturday, July 25th from 10:00 – 10:45 AM. Since no one there will be drinking Friday night, no one will be hung over and it will be well attended I’m sure. I am hoping Ward makes it.

I’ll also be on a panel Sunday, July 26th from 2:00 – 3:00 PM Paths to Publishing. I hope to be mildly interesting and somewhat mildly informative.

The important thing is that all payments for attending this convention go directly to helping families in need. It is a good and growing charity and the convention has become a valuable part of that effort.

Attend if you are anywhere in the area and come see us. If you aren’t able to attend, check out Scares That Care online.

I will be live tweeting and posting all weekend from the table and from events around the weekend. Watch for #ScaresThatCare on Twitter, follow me @AmongTheZombies on Twitter, and check out my author page on Facebook.
