Bay Area Book Festival

Lost-Angels-FrontToday and tomorrow, the second annual Bay Area Book Festival takes place in Berkeley, California.  Once again, I’ll be hanging out at the HWA booth, selling books and talking about writing.

The book festival is huge and sprawling, taking over streets all over downtown Berkeley. Last year, booths ranged from kids books to travel books to history to every flavor or fiction, from self-published to small presses to local celebrities to the university presses.  I honestly never saw so many books together in one place in my life.

Last year’s festival was the first time I felt like part of the huge vibrant literary community in the San Francisco Bay Area.  It was the first time I’d ever seen all our variety on display in once place.

Joining me at the HWA table today will be local authors Jeff Seeman, Crystal Romero, John Claude Smith, Oz Monroe, Roh Morgan, and Sumiko Saulson.  (Tomorrow’s authors include Gene O’Neill, Samuel Sattin, Martin Reaves, and Luke Hueler.)

We’ll be on Writers Row between Addison and Kittredge from 10 to 6.

I’ll have all my recent books for sale, along with Automatism Press’s newest publication, Black Light.  Whether your tastes run to dark space opera or horror erotica, to historic cemeteries or Morbid Curiosity or to rock-n-roll vampire love stories, I’ll be glad to set you up.
