Tomorrow I leave for New Orleans to attend the World Horror Convention and the Bram Stoker Awards Weekend. And I still haven’t packed everything! (Taking a deep breath and a break to post this new blog.)
I hope to see you there for tons of great programming and activities. I’m very excited about the special guests for the convention this year: Amber Benson (actress/writer), Ramsey Campbell (writer), Glenn Chadbourne (artist), Jonathan Maberry (writer), Caitlin R.Kiernan (writer), Robert McCammon (writer), and many more!

Also a reminder that my eBook, “The White Death & Other Ghastly Ghost Stories” is still available online at Amazon, B&N, Kobo, iBook Store, etc.:
I’ve visited The Big Easy twice before, and it never gets old. The convention will be held at the famously haunted Hotel Monteleone in the heart of the French Quarter. There are many local ghost tours offered of the Quarter and of the unique cemeteries in the area.
The last time I was in New Orleans, I crept over to St. Louis No. 1 Cemetery to visit the tomb of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau (see photo below). If you plan to attend, don’t forget to have beignets at the Café du Monde. And if you run into me, I’ll buy you a Hurricane. Laissez les bon temps roulez!!!!
