Calendar of Readings and Signings

April showers may bring May flowers, but along with those precious petals come the onslaught of allergy season and the influx of bugs and other creepy crawlies in the gardens. All around us, there are horrors, even if they may be minor and more troublesome that dangerous. Take some time, walk the yard, smell the air, and find the inspiration for your next horror project.  While you’re at it, be sure to schedule your signing or reading and let us know about it.

Additionally, for all book-release announcements, please contact Rena Mason for inclusion in her "Recently Born" column.

Remember that you can always find out what’s going on by visiting the calendar of events on the HWA Web site. If you submit your information late, that information will show up only on the calendar. It is best to get your event information in early.
