Crystal Connor, one of the other women in the compilation of biographies and interviews 60 Black Women in Horror, has put together a signing with myself and fellow horror author Lori Titus that will take place in March, when we are all down here for the AstroBlackness 2 Sci-Fi and Fantasy Expo over at at Loyola Marymount University…March 12-13, 2015.onlydeathispromised

We will be signing at Dark Delicacies, 3512 West Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank on Saturday, March 14 at 2pm.

We also have a reading the following day, Sunday, March 15, at $10 or Less Bookstore. 9054 Tampa Avenue, Northridge, CA 91324 at 5pm – 7pm..

The sequel to Happiness and Other Diseases, Somnalia, comes out March 12 so I will read from it at this event.

Somnalia: Turmoil consumes the Underworld when the death of a god leaves a power vacuum. Phobetor, the stern and ambitious god of Nightmares seeks to fill the gap at any cost. Murderous nightmare daemons escape to the mortal realm, placing all of mankind in peril. In the midst of the unrest, star-crossed lovers yearn for one another across the void, one disempowered and bound to the earth, the other trapped in the land of dreams by a grave sacrifice. Will love conquer all, or will earth’s salvation come with an iron fist?

Lori Titus is from Los Angeles, and started writing stories when she was nine. Titus never stopped writing, but it was a hobby, and pretty much a secret of hers for a lot of years. Titus started submitting short stories, and quite a few of them got published. One editor wrote her back about a short story that she had written for his site, wanting to know if she would like to serialize it. The serial eventually became the basis for her first novel, Hunting in Closed Spaces, about a young girl named Marradith with extraordinary powers.

These days she is always in the process of writing or editing projects, if not both. Titus has always loved horror, but also enjoys paranormal (anything with psychics, telepathy, telekinesis, etc.). Her mother and sister were both horror fans, so she credits them with her early love of anything frightening or outside the realm of the ordinary.

“We used to say that books and movies were supposed to be an escape, so why watch or read something without a sense of imagination?”

Washington State native, Crystal Connor loves anything to do with monsters, bad guys (as in evil-geniuses & super-villains.  Not ‘those’ kind her mother warned her about), rogue scientific experiments, jewelry, sky-high high-heeled shoes & unreasonably priced handbags.

When she’s not terrorizing readers she reviews indie horror and science fiction films for both her personal blog and

She is also considering changing her professional title to dramatization specialist because it so much more theatrical than being a mere drama queen. The End is Now is the 5th book that has been unleashed by Connor’s awarding winning imagination.
