HOMECOMING

So about two weeks ago, I had a signing in ye olde Quad Cities, specifically Moline, my hometown. It was a general thank you shindig for people who had bought my book with a few extra copies lying around that you could have in exchange for a donation to Children's Therapy Center of the Quad Cities. 

Boom!

Boom!

The event was hosted at Barley and Rye, a wonderful restaurant in downtown Moline who made delicious blood spatter cookies that I ate for days afterwards.

The event was a HUGE success. Somewhere around a hundred people came out to see me (our hosts stopped counting at 80). Including:

Family...

Childhood friends...

People whose fault it is that I love Halloween...

Who also bring pictures as proof...

Me wearing a Punisher costume before that was a thing you could actually do.

First three shows at age 11/12 were as follows: Charlie Chillfactor in Skullduggery at Santa's Place, Lost Boy in Peter Pan, and then a promotion to the Mainstage as the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.

If they're old enough to look at the Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark pictures, they're old enough to read my book. #Lies

In addition to the great crowd we had, at least 30 copies were given out in exchange for donations raising $602 for special needs children.

Thank you to Barely & Rye for hosting the event, thank you to everyone who came out to say hi and eat food, and  just thank you to everyone in general for their support! Y'all are the best.
