The folks at Red Vein Army have invited me to participate in their Books, Brews and Boos event in Richmond, VA, on August 14th at 8 pm. The event will take place at Strangeways Brewing. It will be my privilege to add a touch of Post-Apocalyptic flair to their horror event. There will be seven horror authors, including myself.
At first, I wasn’t sure if my book fit or not but I have to admit that I have a lot of people telling me that my book either gave them nightmares or at least kept them up at night. That’s horror of the frightfully realistic kind. And we all know that sometimes its the human monsters that can be the scariest.
The city is special to me because that’s where the journey of my characters in THE BORROWED WORLD starts. Their business trip to Richmond quickly becomes the trip from hell.
Richmond is also special to me because I’m a VCU grad and had some great times there in that city. I have great memories of living in the Fan district and Oregon Hill. Hanging at the James River before they cleaned it all up. Wandering Hollywood Cemetery. Eating my first Fried Provolone Sandwich at The VIllage Café. Going to Main Street Thrift. Seeing GWAR and the Butthole Surfers perform together. Seeing shows at Rockitz. Wandering Grace Street when you could see anything in the world there, even things you couldn’t un-see no matter how much you tried.
Anyway, I appreciate their invitation and am looking forward to the event. If you’re in the neighborhood and it sounds like your cup of tea, stop by to say hello, have a beer, and enjoy what promises to be some entertaining conversation.
