Yours truly at the Arden Fair Barnes & Noble on Saturday, May 26, 2018, which just happened to be World Dracula Day.

This past Saturday, the Arden Fair Barnes & Noble hosted a book signing for yours truly, it was my second such event at that store. I have enjoyed my two best book signing sale days at this location. The staff is courteous and helpful, and the customers are wonderful.

Many people stopped by to chat, and even if they didn’t purchase, many walked away with a postcard or a bookmark. Both The Dark Truth and The Dark Descent were available and I was stunned by how many folks purchased both books.

The event coincided with World Dracula Day – the anniversary of the first publication of one of my greatest influences, Dracula by Bram Stoker, May 26, 1897. I didn’t plan it that way but it’s heady stuff to be signing copies of your vampire novels on the anniversary of the publication of this seminal work.

Thank you, Arden Fair Barnes & Noble. I hope to do another event with you.

More events are planned. I still have three on the calendar. I will be at the Modesto, Calif., Barnes & Noble for the second time this Saturday starting at noon.

Then, on Sunday, June 10 at 3 p.m., I will be part of a panel discussion with fellow authors Samantha Heuwagen, K.M. Riley and Mark London Williams at the San Francisco Comic Con at the Oakland Convention Center in downtown Oakland, Calif.

The last event currently on the calendar is a book signing event at the Dublin, Calif., Barnes & Noble along the I-580 corridor at Hacienda Crossings.

Please come out to one of my events, I’d love to see you. Pick up a signed copy of one of my books and chat vampires, Gothic horror, literature, or just stop and say “hi.”

Thank you, Arden Fair!

Book Tour for The Dark Descent Continues

The book tour in support of my second novel, The Dark Descent, continues this weekend in Sacramento. This will be my second appearance at the Arden Fair Barnes & Noble. The first, which took place back in February, was my first signing event ever. Head over to the Where to Buy page and find out how to get your copies of my books if you can’t make the events.

I’ll be back at the Modesto Barnes & Noble on Saturday, June 2 at Noon.

The book tour in support of my second novel, The Dark Descent, is really starting to heat up. I currently have four events confirmed, with another big announcement for a fifth coming very soon. My weekends this spring and summer are going to be very busy.

This Saturday, I’ll be at the Bay Street Barnes & Noble location in Emeryville along with fellow authors K.M. Riley and Mike Esola. Riley, a published author,  is a Trifecta Publishing House labelmate and was recent guest on my podcast. Esola has written several novels. We’ll be taking part in a panel discussion on fiction writing, publishing and the creative process. The event starts at 2:00 p.m.

On Saturday, May 12, I’ll be at the Folsom, Calif., Barnes & Noble location. I’ve never been to this store and I have only driven through Folsom so this will be a new experience for me. That event starts at 2:00 p.m. also.

The next two just locked in and they are return engagements with Barnes & Noble stores where I had two of my first signings. I really do appreciate their support.

On Saturday, May 26, I’ll be back at the Arden Fair Barnes & Noble in Sacramento, the site of my first-ever book signing event. That event begins at 11:00 a.m.

And, on Saturday, June 2, the Modesto Barnes & Noble beckons once more. That signing starts at Noon.

The Dark Descent is the sequel to my debut novel, The Dark Truth, which dropped last November. I am in work on the third in The Dark Passage Series, The Dark Terror. Head over to the Books page to learn more about the title.

Check out the Upcoming Events page for more details and visit the Where to Buy page to find out how to order copies of my books.

Book Tour Part Deux

First Book Signing Goes Well

28055951_2114349538795624_3011385751419680606_nI hosted my first book signing event today at Barnes and Noble at Arden Fair in Sacramento. The store was decked out for yours truly, which is a heady tonic. It’s fulfilling and validating to see your picture, your book cover, and your name on a Barnes and Noble event sign next to your books in the window.

I spent five hours at the store chatting with patrons and hawking my wares. To the young lady whose mom saw my appearance on Good Day Sacramento and couldn’t wait for the event (and meet me) – thank you. I wish you all the success in the world in your creative endeavors.

And thank you to everyone who stopped by the table and took a moment to chat with me, whether you bought a copy or not (extra thanks to those of you who did). For those of you who didn’t purchase, but took a postcard or bookmark, I hope you do decide to give The Dark Truth a try.

28059385_1679402465439438_9104079527134301874_nSpecial thanks to Erik Stevens, Community Business Development Manager at Barnes and Noble Arden Fair. Although we weren’t able to meet in person, the store staff members were gracious and helpful. Thank you to every employee I encountered today, you helped make me feel very special.

I absolutely adore bookstores, chains or indie. I mentioned it before, if you sell books, you’re okay in my … um … book. It was an absolute thrill for me to sit at a table in a bookstore, surrounded by books, at a table signing MY books.

Hopefully, with three more signing currently scheduled, this is the start of something big.
