I’ll be at Rock & Shock with the NEHW this Weekend!

If you love horror and rock and roll (and you’re not at ComicCon in NYC), shoot on up to Worcester, MA to the Palladium & DCUCenter for Rock and Shock. I’ll be joining the New England Horror Writers for a weekend of panels and mayhem…and stop by the NEHW to get some scary books signed by the authors, just in time for Halloween! A complete list of authors appearing is here: http://nehwnews.wordpress.com/2012/10/12/the-nehw-at-rock-and-shock/

Rock and Shock offers plenty of meet and greets with celebrities (this year Peter Criss from KISS and Anthony Michael Hall will be among them). You can also catch the red-carpet premiere of the new horror-sci-fi thriller Infected, the cast of FEARNet’s Holliston, and sit in on lots of great panels (organized by Fangoria magazine) such as Women in Horror with Heather Langenkamp (yes—from A Nightmare on Elm Street), friends and fellow writers Stacey Longo Harris and Tracy L. Carbone, and Lisa Marie (yes—Ed Wood). Check out the schedule here: http://rockandshock.com/schedule/ (as for me, I’ll be on the Breaking into the Biz panel with writing buds TJ May, Jason Harris, and Matt Bechtel (NECON E-books) at 6 p.m. Friday Night). All of that, plus plenty of vendors. Hope to see you there!

NIGHTMARE IN WORCESTER: NEHW ROCK AND SHOCK 2011 VIDEO OVERVIEW

Writers, artists, and other creators spend a lot of time in isolation—not necessarily because we are actively crafting, but because, I’ve often felt, we seem to think differently.

Although I’ve always been comfortable in my surroundings, I’d forgotten how much fun it was to be around other people who share the same creative drives, dreams, ambitions and even habits. At this weekend’s Rock and Shock—where I worked the New England Horror Writers booth with several of my peers—I almost felt like I was on a different planet, one I wasn’t too anxious to leave.

I’m planning on writing something up for the NEHW blog that discusses this a little bit more in depth, but for now, I think this mini-movie I made—at least for me—says it all. Enjoy!

ROCK & SHOCK IS COMING…JOIN ME AND THE NEW ENGLAND HORROR WRITERS OCTOBER 14-16!

There’s probably not much that Robert Englund (best known for A Nightmare on Elm Street) and I have in common except for V in the 1980s (he was in it and I loved it)—and that we’ll both be at the same event in October: ROCK AND SHOCK, from October 14-16 at the DCU Center & the Palladium in Worcester, Mass.
