Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival 2016

I will be taking part in the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival this year: Saturday, October 22nd, 10 AM – 4:30 PM at the Haverhill Public Library in Haverhill, Mass! This event is free and open to the public! There will be lots of great stuff going on, but here’s where you can find me:

Signing, 10 AM – 12 PM

Copies of Dying Is My BusinessDie and Stay Dead, and Chasing the Dragon will be available for sale at the event, but I’ll happily sign anything of mine that you bring, too! Don’t worry if you miss the window of my official signing, I’ll be at the festival all day and will be happy to sign your books whenever.

Some of my Best Friends Are Vampires: Diversity in Urban Fantasy, 3 PM – 4 PM

Kat Howard, Errick Nunnally, Nicholas Kaufmann (M), Douglas Wynne, E.J. Stevens

Much of the first wave of urban fantasy and paranormal mysteries didn’t contain many characters that reflected the diverse nature of the real world. They tended to be white, middle class, and North American in both setting and population. A new wave of writers in these subgenres are exploring cities and characters that are more inclusive. Panelists will discuss approaches to broader perspectives, challenges they face, and the best works of urban fantasy that embrace the multicultural nature of our world.
