More details/dates as I learn them…
I had a great time signing books, speaking on panels, and causing trouble generally at Spooky Empire in Orlando over the weekend.
I also finally got to meet
Max Brooks, who was a really nice guy. (I was wondering if he had heard of me, and when I introduced myself he cocked his neck like he wasn’t really sure. But then he saw the cover of my book and was like “Oh, you’re that guy!” And I was like: “Yep, I’m that guy.”)
Here are some pictures:
Being assigned the book-signing table next to Max Brooks is a little like being assigned the urinal next to Ron Jeremy. (I still sold quite a few books, though. Thanks to everybody who came up and said hi!)
Gettin' set to discuss zombies!
With Dana Snyder!
