Shout out to Liz from Bad Moon Books.
See this picture of Jack Ketchum? It's a rare sighting. I actually had to sneak up on him lest he fly away. This normally night-time author made a rare morning appearance. You can tell by the wide-eyed look that he never knew the world was so bright.
Roy Robbins wins the coolest guy on the planet award today. He asked me to write the intro for Clive Barker's new book Candle in the Clouds, to be published by Bad Moon Books tbd. I'm struggling to manage my gushing fan boyishness. I can't wait. For those of you who don't know, Clive is my absolute favorite author. I paid Roy back by asking the girl behind the counter if she recognized Roy, then backed off by saying that she probably didn't watch those sorts of movies. Then I did introduce Roy as a celebrity, better known as the Costa Mesa Machine-- Big pornstar from the 1970s who now runs PornStars for Jesus, a 501.3c non-profit. I thought Liz was going to faint.
Now Yvonne just hit me with a pillow.
Gotta run and chase down the wife.
