I am appearing at the 2nd annual CELEBRATE THE BOOK festival in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Not only will I be signing my older books (Sky Girl, Zombies, Armed and Fabulous, etc.), but I will also have copies of Don't be Afraid and Iconic 2 , which both debuted at this year's New York ComicCon.
If that is not enough, some guy named DAVID BALDACCI, (Absolute Power, The Camel Club, Split Second, Saving Faith, The Christmas Train, and a whole bunch of stuff I forgot) will be the keynote speaker. ;-)
The festival will be held:
Saturday, October 22, 2011 Carlisle Expo Center
100 K Street
Carlisle, Pa 17013
9 am to 4 pm

But, the event is described as:
"The Friends of Bosler Memorial Library are proud to present the 2nd annual CELEBRATE THE BOOK festival.

Elevator Pitch Press debuted Don't be Afraid at New York ComicCon (with a creepy cover byDarick Robertson & Richard P. Clark) and Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool News was great enough to spotlight it.

In addition to stories by Dan Rivera, Joshua Osborne, Justin Heggs, and Eric Drumm and interior art by Randy Valiente, Cecilia Latella,Jonathan Zajdman, and Marc Jameson, the issue features my story, The Belt (with Amazing Art by Dafu Yu and incomparable lettering by E.T. Dollman.). The story is basically Open Water in space. Plus, the tale features, Jefferson Frank, who won an auction at George Mason law School to have his name included in the book.
Here is some of Dafu's incredible art:
