Barnes and Noble
Friday, October 16, 2009
Time: 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: Barnes and Noble
Street: 102 Commons Drive
City/Town: Geneva, IL
Reading and signing featuring local horror authors. Also scheduled to attend: John Everson, W.D. Gagliani, David Benton, J.A. Konrath, Travis Thrasher and Bill Breedlove.
I read Ghostwriter, and now working on Isolation by Travis Thrasher. Excellent!
This summer I read Afraid by J.A. Konrath (under his pen name Jack Kilborn) and it was extremely well-written but gruesome as all get-out. Frankly, unsure if I can recommend Afraid (2008) due to its unmitigated gore, relentless, chapter after bloody chapter. Anyhow, Konrath is a good self-promoter and busy author.
I am a budding writer myself. I have to be motivated by these Illinois authors, a real treat to see them in October, the month of chilly nights and harvest moons, no less. I will invite David and Alexia and anyone else who wants to partake in this night of live author-read literature from the ghoulish side of the bookstore.
P.S. When director Tim Burton makes my book into a movie, at the premiere, Dave, Alexia and I plan to sip Cape Codders in the balcony and shoot spitballs at Johnny Depp.
