Coming Events – Oct 2016

BooksHard to believe we are getting so close to the end of the year already.  Seems it was just May, then I looked up and we are already in October. Well, here are a couple of coming events I have in the month of October.

First is the Lansing Fall Festival (which had been known as Autumn in the Grove).  This event keeps growing every year and there will be quite a few additional vendors this year compared to last. Come on out this Saturday, October 8th from 10am to 4pm and enjoy the fun.

The last event for October is Elite Comic’s Free Comic Book Day of the Dead!  Elite always throws a great party and there will be a number of great creators there.  Plus, free comics! Don’t miss this event.  This is on October 29th from 10am to 5pm.

Free Comic Book Day 2016

Free Comic Book Day at Elite

Elite-Free-Comic-Book-DayWilliam at Elite is having another party and you are all invited! Best part, you can take some free stuff home with you: Comics, food, and cosplay.

Free Comic Book Day is May 7th, starting at 1000 AM.

There will also be lots to buy.  William invites a lot of local creators to show up, so you can talk with many artists and authors.

I will also be there with my table and books. Unfortunately, unless the shipping gods have a sudden spurt of love for me, I won’t have Father’s Legacy there.  But I will have the first four in the series.  Never fear, if you want a signed copy of Book 5, I am booked for three Comicons in the coming months and plan to do additional local events as well.

Upcoming Events

An old friend

Ren FaireIt is with a great deal of sadness that I have to say I will not be at the KC Ren Fest this year as a vendor. Over the last few years, I have been helping out Samantha in her booth at the Faire and as part of that, I had tucked my books into a corner for people to buy.

The change this year is because Samantha has moved to Texas. In doing so, she has sold her both at Faire. Alas, I no longer have a place out there to spend my time (and offer my books for sale).

I do intend to come out as a patron at least once or twice. I’ve made an appearance at that Ren Fest every year for a couple of decades, so the year just wouldn’t be right if I missed the Faire entirely. Plus, I have too many people I need to visit with for a while, even if I won’t make it out there most weekends, I’ll make it out a couple of times.


However, all is not lost. If you are interested in picking up the latest book or just chatting with me, I have two more upcoming events on the calendar this year and I will be doing several events next year (both of the local Comic Cons as well as Smallville).

We Are Still Batman at Elite Comics

We are still BatmanWilliam at Elite Comics is always a great guy and a wonderful person. He loves to help out artist, authors, and creators and invites them to his big parties. On 26 Sep 2015, from 10 am to 6 pm, he’s having another big event with food, entertainment, lots of creators, and of course comics. Don’t miss the We Are Still Batman event!

Even if you are not into comics, come out and have some fun.  It is an easy way to get a taste of Comic Con without having to buy a ticket.

Lansing’s Fall Festival and Craft Show

This year Lansing has changed the name of the show from Autumn in the Grove.  They don’t have much up yet on a website, but the event is on 10 Oct 2015 and starts at 10 am and goes until 5 pm. This year, they plan to have it at Angle Falls Trail, which is located behind St. Francis de Sales Church. I’ll update this page with links if they get a webpage posted.

One of your favorite locations?

If there is someplace you really want to see me attend, let me know and I’ll try to work it into my schedule. No guarantees, but I have added a couple events I now do regularly because someone suggested it.
