Hey there, horror hounds! The magical weekend has finally arrived! Yes, it’s SPOOKY EMPIRE!!! Both myself and the God of Hellfire will be there, promoting my books as well as the 13 O’Clock Podcast! We’ll be on several panels on the Creator’s Track, which holds events in the Barrel Spring Room on the second level of the Hyatt Regency Orlando on International Drive.
On Friday, 8pm will see us on the Invasion of the Podcasters panel, and at 9pm we will be moderating the infamous Sick and Twisted Panel, complete with free booze (21+, obviously) and some of the most messed up shit you’ve ever heard.
Then on Saturday, I will be discussing Women In Horror at noon, both Tom and I will be talking about TV Spooks vs. Real Life Haunts at 2pm, and we’ll be at the signing table from 5pm-6pm, selling books and meeting and greeting. At 7pm, I will be on a panel called A Spike in the Ear.
Sunday, I will be discussing Twin Peaks on the panel devoted to that at 11am, and Tom will be talking about why we love villains so much on the Sympathy for the Devil panel at 2pm.
In between all the panels, we will be wandering around the con, so if you’re a fan and you see us, pop up and say hello; we don’t bite (much). We’re looking forward to seeing all you crazy kids there!
Ugh. One serial killer is bad enough, but when two psycho losers team up and begin to realize their sick fantasies of keeping women in a dungeon and killing their friends and neighbors for the hell of it (not to mention shooting babies, for fuck’s sake), then the end result is unspeakable horror and tragedy. On this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny delve into the depraved tale of Leonard Lake and Charles Ng, two murderous creeps whose bizarre friendship resulted in the deaths of at least eleven, but possibly as many as twenty-five, innocent people. Your intrepid hosts have a rambling and possibly error-ridden discussion about this pair of scumbags, during which T & J desperately try to use dark humor as a defense mechanism against the onslaught of monstrosity (with varying results). They then each feel the need to take a nice, long, Silkwood shower. Enjoy?

SPOOKY EMPIRE THIS WEEKEND, FOLKS!!! Yes, the convention had to be postponed due to Hurricane Matthew last October, but it is ON this weekend and Tom and I were invited to sit in on some of the author panels and mix and mingle with the horror community. So COME ON DOWN and see me and the God of Hellfire himself, Tom Ross, live and in the flesh! We will be on several of the author panels, like Monster Survival on Friday December 2nd at 8pm, Sick & Twisted on Friday at 9pm, Women In Horror on Saturday, December 3rd at 2pm, and Intergalactic Horror on Sunday December 4th at 2pm, among many others! We will also be signing books on Saturday at 3pm and 6pm, and on Sunday from noon to 2pm. So come and see us THIS WEEKEND at the Orange County Convention Center! (By the way, my author pic on the website still has me with bright red hair, but it’s actually purple now, just in case you don’t recognize me. Hee hee.)
