Friday the 13 through St Patrick’s Day Spookathon

Friday 13 thru St Pats Banner

Friday the 13 through St Patrick’s Day Spookathon

If I were a television programming director, I would probably be planning a Friday the 13th and Leprechaun movie marathon this weekend. Five full days are sandwiched between Friday the 13th and St. Patrick’s Day, what could be more perfect? Well, I’ll tell you what could be more perfect! My birthday – that’s March 20th – on the first day of spring, the Vernal Equinox just three days later. Guess what there will be then? A total solar eclipse. Are you creeped out yet?

Trilogy of Terror

Trilogy of Terror flier

Even more perfectly frightening? The fact that I have an In Store Appearance with fellow horror divas Crystal Connor and Lori Titus at the largest horror bookstore on the west coast, Dark Delicacies, on Saturday, March 14th. That’s right! But that is just the middle of a whole weekend full of fun filled frightening activity for the terrible threesome, the Trilogy of Terror, Crystal Connor, Lori Titus and Sumiko Saulson.

All three of us are black women who write horror. I met Crystal Connor when I interviewed her for 60 Black Women in Horror, but this is the first time we will be meeting in person! I am so excited! I interviewed Sunday, March 15th.

The three of us will appear at $10 or Less Bookstore for a signing and reading in-store event.

Friday, March 13th we will be down at Loyola-Marymount for Astroblackness where we will meet our friend Kinitra Brooks for the first time and speak with her about her upcoming scholarly work on black women in horror.  She is also interviewing many women from 60 Black Women in Horror.  I will have a limited number of copies of the book with me, in case you want to pick one up and get it signed by some of the women in it who will in attendance.
