I finally signed up for it this year. So far, it’s been a good experience, just going by day one’s progress.
As a Grammar Nerd and OCPD neat freak, I couldn’t stand it – I went and edited out every typo I ever found (hopefully I got them all). My husband, author/creator Kevin A. Ranson spruced up the spine and back cover, and helped me with the formatting of the interior file. It looks amazing!
Also, since it was once going to be split into two books, I wrote a new chapter to close out “book one”. I never ended up splitting this behemoth of a book, but I loved the new chapter so much, I included it in this new version. It’s short, but a great addition to the story.
For those who already purchased a trade paperback copy of Grimmie, if you see me at a convention with new copies, bring your former one to show me, and you can get a new copy at a deep discount. The e-book version also has the new edits and new chapter in it, and you can even get an autograph for e-books now. (Details are on the Grimmie page here.)
My new book trailer for Grimmie is out!
Kevin A. Ranson is a genius! My thanks to our wonderful actors, too:
Chris Aquino was my first pick for Corwin Grimm, a.k.a. Grimmie, and I was delighted when Melissa Tobin agreed to be Mary. Heath Ray made a great Louis and helped us get Johnny Hereford and James Trumble to play Louis’s buddies.
Kevin did the original music, created the special effects, and built the trailer from the ground up. I’m just in love with it!
October is just around the corner, and that means Spooky Empire. I am detouring up to Atlanta first for the Walker Stalker convention, and then on down to Orlando for Spooky Empire. I hope to see all of my awesome friends down there, and I plan to run around Halloween Horror Nights while I’m at it. Come on, October! Hurry up!
I can highly recommend the Texas Frightmare Weekend convention in Dallas, Texas to all horror and genre fans, and especially to those who love autograph hunting and amazing shopping in two huge dealer rooms. This is primarily a horror media convention, so I haven’t seen many authors represented, but the celebrity panels are excellent and the film screenings are worth a watch at all hours, too. In addition, the staff was helpful and friendly, and the lines were organized to keep moving and were managed very well. The Hyatt Regency at the airport was a great venue with sufficient food available; the only drawback was having no walk-to-the-corner places to try as well. There is a plan afoot to for next year to see if we can walk to the airport complex and access the restaurants there. The object is to leave the car in the great parking space we nabbed at the hotel. Over all, this is an A+ convention!
