Before the Con, I spent a great week of vacation with the family. We rented a house in Tennessee on Lake Norris. I read four books, ate my body weight in chips, and got about 7 pages of work done on the second novel. But alas, all good things must come to an end; hence why I found myself waking up at 3:30 AM on Saturday morning. My wife, her brother, my twin nieces and I packed into the car and we were off to Champaign, Illinois to the Diet Dark History & Horror Con!
Brother-in-law: “I feel like is one of those stoner movies where I gotta get you to the Con on time.”
If anyone in Hollywood wants to explore that movie… hit me up.
He got me to the Con on time! At 10:45 AM, I skidded into the parking lot and by 11:05 AM, we were rolling.
There were a fair number of vendors at the Con, as well as authors, artists, actors, horror fiends, and the adoring general public. My first customer was one of the nurses I work with (of course, we only cross paths during codes upstairs but that’s where you really befriend a person, you know) and one of my fellow EM docs stopped by with his son (and his emotional support can of tuna) and wife. I sold a fair number of books and The Broken Heart did particularly well.
I got the coolest Midsommer print from the Artful Rabbit:
What’s happening with Dr. Spooky?
Recently released was the episode of the We Bleed Orange and Black podcast I recently recorded. We talk childhood trauma and why I’m terrified of dolls, Halloween faves, and my book: The Broken Heart!
