Visit our Facebook page for mayhem from the 11th Annual Witches Ball. If you missed out, never fear, you have another chance to pick up your autographed copy of The Vampire Family at our next New Jersey Authors Network seminar Saturday October 20 at the Atlantic County Library in Galloway.
Paranormal authors, horror writers, dark fantasy and otherwise demented folk!
Unwind from the daily networking of the Muse Online Conference for this fun but no less informative chat. After our initial Monday night mayhem, we'll have our own section of the conference forum to continue the macabre but no less informative conversation.
Who's buying what? Vampires, Weres, Zombies. Who's played? What's next? Romance, erotica, scares- what spice or frights do readers want in horror fiction today? If you took part in last year's conference chat, you know we have just as much virtual mayhem and literary information in our wee hours as calorie free refreshments and crazy genre chat!
Remember, after our Chat on Monday, a forum will unlock for continued discussion, sharing, and follow up. It's virtual mayhem with absolutely no calorie consequences. Join Us!
Now then, you can also snag your scary self an autographed copy of our first novel The Vampire Family at not one, but two September events. We'll even have copies of fellow Eternal Press author Leigh Wood's science fiction erotica sauce On the Way to New Isosceles.
Join Us 11 am to 5 pm Saturday September 15 at the Authors on the Green in Smithville! !
And Local authors should join myself, Jon Gibbs, MaryAnn Diorio, Jim "JJ" Lair, Melinda Leigh, and Ilene Schneider for our next Getting Published seminar 7 p.m. Thursday September 27 at the Moorestown Library!

Our final release in the Fate and Fangs: Tales from the Vampire Family series may have come last month, but that doesn't mean the bloody train of virtual decadence has slowed!
