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!
