AuthorFest cleaned me out of THE BLACKENING OF FLESH

The past won’t stay buried.

I brought a whole bunch of books to AuthorFest in Round Lake Beach today, and I came home with quite a few less.

I sold out of THE BLACKENING OF FLESH and SHRIEKS AND SHIVERS FROM THE HORROR ZINE, and I also signed copies GOTHIC BLUE BOOK V and QUALIA NOUS.

The weather was nice, the food was fresh, and the music was rockin’, thanks to Edison Blake and Deezguize.

The crowds were great, too. Super supportive and big fans of books: everything from financial guides to high fantasy to the depths of horror.

Couldn’t make it out today? Check out some of the participating authors’ books, and maybe buy a one or two online:

Made possible by This Old Book in Grayslake, event proceeds from AuthorFest are going toward the Bradbury-Carnegie Center‘s mission to reopen Ray Bradbury’s childhood library at 1 North Sheridan Road.

At age 14, Bradbury moved with his family from Waukegan to Los Angeles, leaving behind the library that fueled so many of his short stories and features in SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES.

The library is one of the few remaining monuments to one of the 20th century’s greatest storytellers and the Center is committed to transforming the vacant building into a museum preserving Bradbury’s life and career.

So if you came out today, you supported a great cause. Well two, really: preserving Bradbury’s legacy and grassroots storytelling. If you couldn’t make it, stay tuned for the next opportunity. There will be more.

Christian A. Larsen is the author of the novels LOSING TOUCH and THE BLACKENING OF FLESHnow available from Post Mortem Press.
