Did someone say convention/conference?

World Horror: 13 Great Things

This March, there will be a World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City, UT. It's a great convention with lots of well-known authors (Peter Straub, F. Paul Wilson, etc.) and a wonderful place to meet new friends, pitch your paranormal thriller or just meet like-minded dark authors! Kristen Nelson (Kristen Nelson Literary Agency) and Stacy Whitman (Wizards of the Coast Editor) will be there, along with Don D'Auria (Dorchester) taking pitch sessions with attending authors.

Here's 13 great things about World Horror:

1. You don't have to be a horror author to come - we take anybody.
2. You can find everything you need at - or you can ask me!
3. Salt Lake is beautiful this time of year - they have skiing!
4. My family lives there - oh, wait. That one might just be for me :)
5. You can meet and chat with several well-known authors - and me too!
6. It's not too expensive - but register soon, before the price goes up in February.
7. Pitch sessions!
8. A gross-out contest, the likes of which I bet most of you have never seen.
9. Great people, great parties.
10. Panels on YA, comic books and more.
11. A fabulous dealers room.
12. Autographs from said well-known authors and a chance to buy new books, and get some free ones.
13. Did I mention I'll be there? :) I'm doing the pitch sessions!!

So check it out, and if you need more details, contact me at

Hope to see you there!
