Julie and I adore the Phoenix FearCon event! This year's was absolutely my favorite!
This expertly run event for indie horror was a seamless process that allowed for over the top horror fun!
The Marriott Courtyard in Avondale was a fantastic host for the guests, costume party, and movie viewings. They have a wonderful bistro that even serves liquor/beer and lots of yummy food options. The staff was super friendly and really seemed to love their jobs. Even the housekeeping staff chatted and asked about our stay. It was quite nice!
The event began on Friday with a costume ball. With a DJ and a spread of food and even comedy and burlesque show, it was a fantastic way to loosen everyone up and let them mingle.
We got into costume - a pirate wench and an 80s rocker and joined the fun! There were great photos ops too in front of the FearCon banner!
The venue was FearFarm - a huge haunted attraction that is now my fav!!!
Vendors were set up all over the FearFarm site and it made a fantastically creepy backdrop.
Julie and I set up a book signing table for our tons of books including; Zombie Housewives of the Apocalypse, Zombie Housewives of the 1960s, Zombie Housewives of the 1970s, Zombie Housewives of the 1980s, Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition), Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Appalachian Edition), Paranormal Geeks, Paranormal Geeks Gang: Geeks and Ghosts, my books Growing Up With Ghosts, Vacationing With Ghosts, and Julie's book "Arizona Back Roads: A Travel Guide to Ghosts, Outlaws, and Miners.
We were able to meet some amazing people, lots of creative geniuses and playful horror fans and friendly public.

(former football player, "Starsky and Hutch" movie, tons and tons of TV and movies from the 1960s on - come on, you know this handsome face and gorgeous eyes!)
The FearCon event was an amazingly well-organized deal! The location was fantastic, the handling of guests and celebs was seamless. I was just so honored to be among these brightest creative minds with a nod toward horror!
Be sure that y'all come to the next FearCon. I know Julie and I will be there!!!
