Upcoming Appearance

Astral_Games

Small Business Saturday is right around the corner. Astral Games (125 S Central Ave Suite 110, Medford, Oregon) is celebrating with a day of special events. As part of the Small Business Saturday festivities going on there, Desirée Lee and I will be appearing. We will have copies of Issue #1 and Issue #2 of our new, ongoing, bimonthly comic book series “Confluence” for sale, and autographing them for those who want signed copies.

For those of you who may not be familiar with “Confluence” as yet, the series centers around a young woman named Rue Preston. She, her best friend Nadine Larson, and the town pest, named Marvin Chambers, are pulled through a dimensional rift. They find themselves trapped on an alien world that is a nexus point for an unknown number of other places. This new world is one where magick and science mix, along with a myriad of alien species. And not all of the beings there are friendly. Rue, Nadine, and Marvin only want to go home. But there doesn’t seem to be a way back. Not an easy one, at any rate.

Keep up with “Confluence” on the series’s Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing everyone at Astral Games on November 29th. Things kick off at 11:30 AM!

Press Release

Here it is, everyone! The official press release for the 1st Annual Klamath Library ComicCon. Desiree and I hope to see you there!

South Suburban Library Hosts Klamath’s First Comic Con

Saturday, October 25th, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
3625 Summers Lane, Klamath Falls, OR 97601

The South Suburban branch library will host the first Klamath Falls Comic Con on Saturday, October 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. What is a Comic Con? For those who don’t know, a Comic Con is an event dedicated to creating awareness and appreciation for comics and related popular art forms. The South Suburban library Comic Con will showcase local businesses and talent; everything from videogames to web comics, and from computers to cartoons.

In addition to vendors, discussions and demonstrations, there will be costume and art contests, crafts, and photo booths. Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite comic book, anime, manga, sci-fi, movie, video game or series character. Costume contest prizes will be awarded in the following categories: Best Villain, Best Team/Couple, Kids (0-10) male/female, Youth (11-18) male/female, Adult (18+) male/female. Costumes will be judged at 4:00 p.m. with prizes awarded to the winners. Any extremely risqué, overly gory or costumes deemed inappropriate by our staff will be asked to leave or change. All costumes must adhere to event costume rules and weapons MUST be peace bonded before entering the building. A peace bonded weapon is one tied to its sheath, holster, or container with a functional binding. It prevents another from taking a costume weapon without permission, and is a traditional and visible sign to others that the bearer is a responsible person. Bonding material will be available at the prop check station.

This Free public event is for all ages and only requires pre-registration for competing in the art contest; no other registration is required. Anyone interested in competing in the art contest may submit artwork along with a registration form through October 11th at the checkout desk at the South Suburban branch. Art larger than 24 x 36 or explicit subjects will not be accepted. Entries will be judged on creativity, style, and drawing ability.

Scott Harper and his wife Desiree Lee will host a panel discussion at 11:30 a.m. Their topics will include plot, writing process, and illustration software. Scott is the author of more than 30 published short stories and several novels. There has been talk, from several fronts, about turning his fourth novel, “Predators or Prey?”, the first book in his Wendy Markland series, into a live-action project.

Harper graduated from Marysville High School in 1993 and began screenwriting in 2007, after the publication of several short stories and novels, and has worked on projects for James Tucker Productions and 11th Dimension Films. He is currently involved with several projects, covering literature, film and comic books. His wife, Desiree Lee, coauthors several of their comic books and writes her own fantasy and paranormal novels.

Chris Purcell is a video game animator, graphic designer, and special effects artist who has worked on the likes of the “Men in Black TV series”, and the video games “Zork: Grand Inquisitor”, and “The Simpsons”. He will be giving a demonstration and discussion at 1:00 p.m.

From 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. Don Pedro Colley, a Hollywood actor, will be speaking about filmmaking and his experience in the industry. Colley was born in Klamath Falls to Muriel and Pete Colley. Colley attended Klamath Union High School and was active in athletics, playing football, and especially enjoying track and field. He tried out for the 1960 Olympics in discus, placing 6th. Colley attended the University of Oregon, studying architecture, and became interested in acting by accident after joining some friends for a play rehearsal. He is probably best known for his roles as Gideon in the series “Daniel Boone”, as Ongaro in the film “Beneath the Planet of the Apes”, and as Sheriff Little in the TV series “Dukes of Hazard”.

Jim Snook, a local cartoonist, will be giving a demonstration at 3:30 p.m. Jim Snook has been an Outdoor Sports Cartoonist for the last 30+ years, marketing hunting, fishing, RV and golfing posters, books, calendars, and art prints worldwide. He is an avid photographer and oil painter as well, and when he’s not creating he’s usually outdoors soaking up inspiration. Snook was born in Concordia, Kansas. His folks made their living in agriculture, but out of desperation moved their family to Oregon in 1944. He attended and graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1954 and married his high school sweetheart, Loretta, in 1955. Jim spent four years in the U.S. Air Force and then attended Southern Oregon University to earn his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees. He worked as a cartoonist for a short time, and then taught Art for eight years at Eagle Point High School. Jim and Loretta now live in Rocky Point.

There will be food items available for purchase at Mia’s and Pia’s Pizzeria & Brew House across the parking lot from the library.

Throughout that discussion, we plan to cover short stories, novels, comic books, and film.

Public Appearances

As you all know, I’m very happily married to bestselling paranormal author Desiree Lee. Both of us love being at signings, and other public appearances. We both love meeting our fans and readers. At the moment, we’re in the process of getting a couple of appearances/signings set up. One would take place later this autumn. The other would be a year from now.

We live in the extreme northern-most part of California. We spend an inordinate amount of time in southern Oregon, too. If anyone would like to have two bestselling authors to appear in their bookstore – or any other business, really – for a signing, a talk on any topic pertaining to writing and/or publishing, please get in touch with us. You can reach Desiree via her website. The link for that is above. You can reach me via the “Contact” form on my own website.

Any appearances or talks that we’re invited to partake in needn’t be limited strictly to writing or publishing, either. Both of us are bestselling paranormal authors. We’re both pagan – Desiree is general eclectic pagan, and I’m Wiccan. Both of us have life-long interests in the paranormal due to firsthand personal experiences. I also used to be part of a paranormal investigation group. Even setting our work aside, we can easily be of use at events centering around paganism, the paranormal, or cryptozoology. My own experiences dealing with sasquatch can be read here.

So, if you think either of us – or both, preferably, since we’re such a team – would be a good fit for your business, or event for a talk or book signing, please let us know. If it’s at all possible for us to do so, we’ll be there! If such an event or signing would be outside the northern California/southern Oregon area, we do ask that transportation and lodging be provided. We are also quite happy to attend talks via Skype. See my recent blog post regarding that topic right here.

October 25th

Desiree Lee and I are in the process of setting up a signing – and maybe a talk, too – on October 25th of this year.If this goes through, it looks as if we’ll be able to represent our books, and comic projects – “MoonWraith” and “Confluence“, as well as put word out about comic book works-in-progress. If this goes through, we’ll be doing the signing in Klamath Falls, Oregon. We look forward to seeing all of you at the signing. Please keep watching my website and WordPress blog for updates on this, and other things.

For those who don’t know us, Desiree is a bestselling paranormal author. She’s had eight books published, as well as magazine articles.

I’m also a bestselling paranormal author with nine books, and over thirty short stories published.

Beyond those things, we have branched out into comic book and film work. At the moment, we’re coauthoring three books at once. Each of those books falls into a different category and genre. As we’re not on the verge of publishing any of those three yet, I don’t want to say much about them here at the moment. So, again, please keep checking back for updates.
