Today's post is to tell you about the FREE webinar I am doing in conjunction with my publisher, ALA Editions on Thursday, October 30th. Click here for all of the details and to sign up for FREE!
I have reposted the important info with links below. But here's what you are going to get:
30 minutes of me doing a prepared talk on WHY people love horror with a few author examples.
30 minutes of live questions from any of you asking me about specific books or horror related issues at your library.
Remember, this is sponsored by my publisher, so I am going to be pushing the hundreds of title suggestions available in my book, and on this blog, which is your FREE update to the book.
In fact, to get you excited for signing up and possibly buying the book, click here to get a preview of my slides which includes a coupon on slide 2!
I hope to "see" you there next week. It can be your lunch break! Well, only if you can handle talking horror while eating. I can, but I know I am weird that way.
