THIS IS A HORROR BOOK is a wild, goofy ride full of spookiness, satire and pop culture references and I wanted a trailer that reflected that. I hope you enjoy!
THIS IS A HORROR BOOK drops Jan. 1! To celebrate, I'm throwing a release party. Details below. I'll be reading along with fellow writers of the spooky and surreal, John Dover and G. Arthur Brown. We will have books for sale and even live accompaniment by musician Mike Doolin. Bonus: The venue is a large bookstore with a super cozy reading room.
Time: 7 p.m. Thu, Jan. 24
Place: Another Read Through, 3932 N. Mississippi Ave., Portland, OR 97227
All ages, but material may be unsuited for innocent-eared children
