Oh, The Places I’ll Go!

Saying that 2018 was eventful is a huge understatement.

My mom and I were busy traveling to local events as well as several in other parts of the country, and we even went as far as Romania to attend the International Vampire Film and Arts Festival (Some photos from these events are shown below.).

This year is shaping up to be extremely busy as well, and I’ll be on the road (and in the air) a lot. Every month has a major event planned, and I’m thrilled about all of them.

  • June 22, I’ll be in my hometown with a booth at the Boonville Heritage Days celebration. Local folks, stop by and say hi! I love this event every year, and it should be a good time.
  • July 8-16, I’m heading to London for the International Vampire Film and Arts Festival in Highgate. This year, I’m going as a tourist and to enjoy the festival. I’ll also get to spend time with friends. I’m excited to see what’s in store and to see some places I’ve only read about in books.
  • In August, a friend of mine is getting married in Tanzania, and I’m planning to attend. This one is still in the planning stages, but I’m so thrilled and honored to be included. It’ll be quite an adventure!
  • September 20-22, I’ll be a special guest at VampCon Chicago. I’ll also have a booth with books to sign, and Marie will be there for selfies too. I’m looking forward to meeting some of the people I’ve always admired and to introducing new readers to my series. It’s got a great lineup, and I can’t wait for this one!
  • October 12, I’ll be at the Twin Cities Bookfest for the third year in a row. I love this event. The organizers are wonderful, and we have met some wonderful people there year after year.

Looks like my suitcase will get a workout.

Sadly, I won’t be able to do everything I wish. I will have to leave StokerCon, Scares That Care, and my beloved Stanley Hotel Writers Retreat for 2020. There just isn’t time and money enough to go to all of the things I’m interested in. I will miss all the folks there, but I promise to be back in the future.

If you see me out at any of this year’s events, don’t be surprised if I have a notebook or laptop beside me. I’ve got several big projects happening this year too. I’m writing two books (Book Four, Flesh and Blood, comes out this fall and the other is still to be determined), producing the audiobooks of the first three novels in The Blood Royal Saga, and Eagle Heights Press will be publishing some other people’s books as well. There are a few other things in the works that I’m not quite ready to discuss yet, but I’ll be talking more about all of the above as they progress, so be on the lookout for those announcements.
