Tatnuck Panel

We had a fun time at Tatnuck Booksellers in Westborough, MA yesterday.

It was a Spooky panel for Halloween, with four of us talking about scary books, movies, and other stuff, with audience participation.

Here's the gang. L to R: Kameryn James, David Daniel, Rebecca (store showrunner, who put this all together) J.M. Taylor, me, Abe Lincoln.

Letting people know who's here...

Thanks to the store personnel for allowing us to come in and share some scares for the holiday!

Portsmouth Noir at the Bar

Had a great time at the Portsmouth Noir at the Bar- where a dozen mystery writers got up to a mic in the Portsmouth Book and Bar with an audience, and read from one of their works. 

We even made the NH magazine

Lots of talent- I've got some pics, but was late, and didn't get everyone. 😞

Thanks to Zakariah Johnson for setting this up, and to the bar for hosting! 

He's also a heck of a good banjo player!

Haunted Trail Night

Townsend had a great Haunted Trail Night for the town, and it was a smash success. Lots of vendors, with food trucks, artisans, scary folks roaming, and even booksellers (me)! 

Here's the rows of booths

I had great neighbors, like Jeanne Leary

And Nicole:

Other booths, like Dragon's Layr:

I got into the spirit (ha-ha) and posed with a new fan:

We even had a great dance troupe, who put on a show to Thriller and other songs:

Thanks to Amy Harrington, who coordinated the event for the vendors.
