I hung out with John Everson who was in town to do a signing for his first Leisure release, Covenant.*
Mid signing, Tommy Chong (as in Cheech and Chong) comes wandering through.
You can’t ask for much more than that from a signing.

*Free Covenant plug: A mix of mystery, the occult and horror, Covenant was first issued in November 2004 from Delirium Books in a signed & numbered, hardcover format, and on June 25, 2005 the Horror Writers Association presented Covenant with a Bram Stoker Award in the “First Novel” category in a ceremony in Burbank, California. You can see articles, photos, and watch a video of my award acceptance here.

The novel follows Joe Kieran, an investigative reporter who discovers a web of mysterious teen suicides that somehow connect five women in a small coastal town. Is there really a malevolent presence inside Terrel Cliff that holds all of the town in thrall? Or is there a murderous covenant between five women to sacrifice their first-born?

Beneath the remains of a long-demolished lighthouse, Joe discovers Terrel’s secret history and salvation and puts his own soul in deadly danger.
