Event Alert: Bookmarks Festival!

I'll be attending Bookmarks' 14th Annual Festival of Books and Authors on September 8 in Winston-Salem, NC. There'll be panels and readings and signings and sumptuous author dinners and unspeakable late night requests to room service. Or so I heard. Anyway, you should totally catch me for some of the first three things. Most events on Saturday are free too, so swing by, and bring me something to draw on!

- Saturday, September 8th. Winston-Salem. North Carolina. More info here.

A Mid-Tour Message

Last Tuesday was A.Z. Kimrean's birthday. Their first novel release date, and their actual birthday too. I just decided that. It's canon now.

I was in Houston at the time. I'd had an event in Jersey City the previous day, I flew on to Dallas on the next. It's been a crazy week. It's being a crazy summer. But as Kimrean's spokesperson (yeah, like they need more voices) let me take this break to say, thank you. To the bookstores who are hosting the events and betting so much in this new book, often out of love for Meddling Kids. To the people who attend the events and stand in line for one on my famously time-consuming autographs. To fans who cosplay (yes, that happened). To narrator January LaVoy, actual provider of Kimreans' voice(s) in the audiobook, for star-guesting at the event in Brooklyn. To all those enthusiastic early reviewers, bookstagrammers, podcasts and critics. And to the people in Doubleday who show much faith in what I pitched as a small amuse-bouche between "big" books.

Monday, we're back on the road. And there are more events to come (I'm looking at you, NC). Stay tuned.

Nobody Does It Better Than Scooby

I wrote a little piece for CrimeReads about genre fiction and the high standards that children's entertainment sets for trope exploitation. You can guess my position by comparing Meddling Kids or even The Supernatural Enhancements with a certain Saturday morning cartoon. Or comparing my upcoming novel with this Spanish comic-book from 1989. Kids know where the good stuff is.
