Author in the Wild

After a quiet few months (on the public appearance side of things), the coming weeks are blooming with opportunities to see me out and about.

First up is during the August LoDa ArtWalk in downtown Mobile, Alabama. ArtWalk happens 6-9pm on the second Friday every month. This week, August 12, 2022, The Haunted Book Shop is celebrating their grand re-opening in their new location: 9 South Joachim, at the NE corner of Conti, across from the Saenger Theater. It’s just two and a half blocks from their previous location on Dauphin Street, but it’s roomier and more accessible as the store is all on the main level. And–beyond the books–there are tons of great architectural details to enjoy in this building.

This Friday, I’ll be volunteering at The Haunted Book Shop from 6:30-8:30pm as part of an author ambassador program. Several writers will be on hand to help show off the new store, give reading suggestions in their preferred genres, and even answer questions about writing.

If you can’t make it to this ArtWalk, stop by anytime and check out the new space. Also, it’s possible I’ll be at the September ArtWalk for a book signing, focusing on The Malevolent Trilogy. More news about that in the weeks ahead.

  1. “Haunted by the ghosts of all great literature.” What a fabulous tee shirt!

    1. The current owner’s grandmother originally opened the shop in oh… I want to say circa the 1930s, got permission from Christopher Morley to name the store after his book and use his quote. Angela Trigg, who re-opened the store in 2018, updated the logo and is carrying on the tradition. I believe she still has the letter from the author to her grandmother.
