Christopher Tallon’s Virtual Bookfair
I’ve attended a bunch of events in the past year selling my debut novel, Switchers, a book about teens in 1996 who get pulled into a time travel war against their adult selves.
Sometimes I was the only author at the events I sold at, other times I was at author-centric events. Hell, I even put on an Artists & Writers Fair that was a mix of the two environments that I’ve come to love so much. Then it hit me–I can do something like a virtual bookfair via this blog. (And maybe in the future on my podcast, Creative Ops.)
Check out these fantastic authors who are better than most of the big names they sell in all the airports and grocery stores:
Jennifer Soucy is a northeast transplant living in the south who writes stories that will make you want to leave the light on at night. I highly recommend Demon in Me and The Mother We Share, but you can’t go wrong with any of her books. She’s great at making things seem normal, then dragging you headfirst into creepy weirdness.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Brandon Scott is North Carolina’s version of Neil Gaiman. Somewhere between horror and fantasy lies the author of the Vodou series. Which is f**king phenomenal, by the way. Start with Vodou, or try one of the short story compilations on his Amazon page or Goodreads page.
T.J. is my editor, which means I have absolute faith in his writing abilities and insights. Any author who uses the editing services of another author respects the HELL of out the other writer. Speaking of hell…T.J. writes about demonic possession in the Mormon church. The New York Times listed Cry Down Dark as the scariest book set it Utah, where he’s from. Now he lives in Washington (the PNW rocks!). Get his books HERE! Then review them on his Goodreads page.
Joshua Marsella kicks friggin ass all the way up and over in Maine. He writes scary stuff about zombie-esque monsters and war, and many other topics in his short fiction. If you get triggered easily, maybe don’t read it. But if trigger warnings make you a happy reader, you’ll dig this. For SURE. You can read the reviews on his Goodreads page to make sure it’s your style.
Alby Blazo (aka Leesa Mason)
Alby Blazo writes poetry and fiction. If you like romance, she’s your gal. We sell books together sometimes at live events, as we’re both west Michigan folk. We even went to the same college. (Not at the same time.)
You wouldn’t think a romance author and a sci-fi author would team up well together, but you’re wrong there, Jack. Besides writing, she also runs writers groups, and started Love, Luna Press, where you can find out more about her work on Amazon as both Alby Blazo and (pen name) Leesa Mason.
Thanks for Stopping by!
I’ll do more authors next time. And I’ll maybe do an episode of Creative Ops that matches the theme here.
Buy some books and follow some authors. Dammit.
Christopher Tallon is the author of the dark, adventurous, time-travel novel Switchers.
Row row row your boat / Gently down the stream
Merrily merrily merrily merrily / Life…is but a dream
