As you all know, I am a hardcore fan of AMC's The Walking Dead. I've read the comics, I own the complete set of the graphic novels, I have played and beat Telltale's The Walking Dead video game on Oldest Spawn's XBox 360, and my DVR will always have every TWD TV episode in existence, both in color AND in black & white, and I married Chris Hardwick. Okay, the last part isn't true, but you can imagine my inner fangirl squeeing about the fact that I will be in Chicago with Oldest Spawn at the WalkerStalker Con March 14-16 with many of the AMC's The Walking Dead cast, including Steven Yeun (Glenn), Lauren Cohan (Maggie), Irone Singleton (T-Dog, y'all!), Emily Kinney (Beth), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha), Lew Temple (Axel) and Laurie Holden (Agh! Andrea!) to name just a few! And ... AND, I won't be the only author there, oh no! Jay Bonansinga, co-author of the Walking Dead Novel Series, The Rise of the Governor, The Road to Woodbury, The Fall of the Governor: Part One & The Fall of the Governor: Part Two will be connin' it up as well. Also, several more of your non-Walking Dead favorites, like Steven Amell from TV's Arrow, Henry Ian Cusick and Nestor Carbonell from LOST will also appear! Also, I'm pretty freakin' stoked that Melissa Hutchinson is appearing. Who is Melissa Hutchinson? The voice of CLEMENTINE from The Walking Dead video game! I'm not even going to tell Oldest Spawn. I'm just going to let her figure it out the moment we're introduced and watch her expression metamorphose from recognition to instantaneous freak out. I might Instagram it. Memories will be made!
Are you going to miss it? ... Well? Are you?
The con itself will be held March 14-16. I will be signing books at the con Saturday, March 15 from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM. The first 50 readers to approach my table will get a FREE hardback special edition of RED HILL (limit 1 per reader, 17+), and of course I would be honored to personalize it to you. I will also have copies to sell. If you have your own copies of my other books, I would love to sign those for you, too! Haven't purchased your con tickets, yet? Worried about the cost? The prices start at just $35.00! Get all the info you need here:
