Full Moon Horror Convention!
Home at last.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Full Moon Horror Convention in Little Rock, Arkansas. Me, my best friend/part-time enforcer Johnny, and an armload of copies of the book made the Statehouse Convention Center our home for three days.
We met some great people like Evelle LeChat and the crew over at Night-Frights, a late night monster show in Conway, Arkansas. They were the first friendly faces we met at the convention and they're doing very important work: Keeping the late night monster show alive! Check them out over at their site and show your support.
Our next door neighbor at the convention was up-and-coming starlet, Sarah Swofford. This was the hardest working girl at the convention, tirelessly posing for pictures with fans and signing autographs. During the lulls in traffic I was able to get to know her a little bit and she's really a great girl. Visit her at her site and check out her new movie Sugar Creek.
In perhaps the strangest twist at the convention, I witnessed the metamorphosis of my friend Tim (proprietor of Tim's Weird World: Northeast Arkansas's premier [and only] emporium of the eccentric) into Timothy M. Eubanks: The International Lover.
At the convention, I also met former Disney animator Richard Harrison Green. He was gracious enough to draw his rendition of the Strange Man, the villain of "The Coming Evil". He did an amazing job!
Overall, the convention was a huge personal success. I was able to meet a lot of people, make some contacts for the future, and even sold some books! And, while I'm glad to be back home, I'm looking forward to my next convention outing. Who knows? It could be in a town near you!
