Dreams Really Do Come True

My birthday is coming soon and all I've really ever wanted was for it to be Halloween in July. I love Halloween. I love watching horror movies all month, decorating, handing out candy, seeing cute kids in adorable costumes - there isn't anything about Halloween I don't love (except for those assholes that stole all our candy one year - bowl and everything. I hate them). This year, I learned that if you work hard and believe in yourself, all your dreams can come true.

I've been invited to host a panel/workshop at Midsummer Scream 2017 in Long Beach! We'll be discussing how to plan a killer (haha, get it?) wedding if you're Halloween obsessed or just have a really dark soul. My wedding was small and mostly traditional, but we always dream of a big 10 year vow renewal that will knock everyone's socks off, so I'll be asking questions and taking notes. After that I'm going to do my damndest to find Cassandra Peterson (best known as Elvira) and get a picture.

The whole event is like a love letter to my perfect birthday and I can't wait. If you're local, or just fucking love Halloween, you should come check it out (Midsummer Scream).

Maybe our vow renewal will be Kurt Russell Themed?
I've also been asked to host a panel at BoucherCon, and I hope to peer pressure a lot of you into coming to see me ask questions about "California Schemin'" - California's influence on our beloved genre.

Two and a half years of Books and Booze has paid off! I am an expert at asking questions while inebriated, so this won't be a challenge at all!
