Light it Up with me at Annie’s Book Stop in Worcester, MA this weekend!

Three on a Match Cut the Cake

Melissa Crandall, g. Elmer Muson, and I cut the cake at the Three on a Match release party, September, 2017.

Join me and fellow writers g. Elmer Munson and Melissa Crandall at Annie’s Book Stop in Worcester, MA this weekend for a special reading from the novella collection Three on a Match! The Light it Up: Three on a Match celebration of literary horror event takes place on Independent Bookstore Day at Annie’s from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 28.

With the focus on horror and its connection to the real world, we’ll read a portion from each tale in the book, talk about where the story came from and share its connection to reality. There’ll be some Mad Libs, snacks, and giveaways (like those nifty matchbooks you could only get if you were at the Three on a Match release party).

The collection includes stories by Stacey Longo (Amston), Melissa Crandall (Hebron), G. Elmer Munson (Vernon), Dan Foley (Manchester) and John Valeri (Portland) and Ryanne Strong (Norwich). It also includes lesser-heralded ghost stories by Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

In the fall of 2016, several of us did readings around the state. I was able to participate in one at the Whiton branch of the Manchester library, and one in Mystic at Bank Square Books. What a blast we had!
