Barnes and Noble Book Signing

I will be at the Barnes and Noble at the Paddock Shops this Saturday from noon until 10 pm promoting Revenge, the latest in the Victor McCain thrillers. This is an event I look forward to each year. You won’t find better people than those who work at B and N at the Paddock Shops. And they have a Starbucks inside. Woot.

FandomFest 2016 Day 3 Recap


IMG_3817FandomFest 2016 wrapped up an incredibly fun weekend. I first want to think Ken and Myra Daniels for putting on a top notch event. Something this massive is not an easy thing to pull off, but they make it seem like a walk in the park. From our perspective. Thank you.

Huge shout out to Stephen Zimmer who ran the Literary Track for FandomFest. The man knows how to build panels which give the fans what they want. From Marvel to Ghostbusters to how to write the best horror novel possible. He manages to seem to be in ten places all at the same time. Makes me wonder….

I’d also like to thank my table mates for the weekend, Stuart Thaman and Dave Creek, two gifted writers who don’t seem to mind putting up with my insanity. Hanging with J.J. and Michael Sherwood and Alexandra Birr is always a highlight. J.J. thanks for doing the heavy lifting when it came to shopping for Katy and Lauren. They will love your choice of gift much better than anything I could ever pick out.

Another real highlight was getting to meet Anthony Michael Hall. I’ve been to dozens and dozens of comic cons and had the chance to see and meet many celebrities, yet I’ve never gone “fanboy” over one of them. Until today. The Dead Zone by Stephen King is one of my all time favorite novels. The TV show by the same name is also one of my all time favorites. Often when a book I love is made into a TV show or movie, it’s disappointing. Yet Mr. Anthony and crew took a great book and turned it into an even more amazing show. I got to meet him when he stopped in front of my booth and he could not have been nicer. This year, at FandomFest, I got to truly enjoy the “fandom” part of the name.

But the best thing about FandomFest is getting to see fans who show up year after year and come back to the table to buy the latest book. You guys are the reason I do what I do. Thank you.

Finally, a few more cosplay pictures with photos from the Batman vs Superman and Ghostbusters panels.


FandomFest 2016 Recap Day 2

Saturday at FandomFest is always a blast because we start with the Literary Track panels. I moderated two of them, Marvel vs DC and Star Wars. Both were standing room only and in both the other panelists and the people filling the room brought a ton of energy, knowledge and the ability to throw down.



Here is my panel schedule for today:


12 noon Batman vs. Superman C112

1:30 pm Ghostbusters C112


3pm Publishing in the Modern Day C112

After the convention shuttered it’s doors for the night, as is tradition with the authors I am blessed to hang out with, we headed downtown to the Troll Pub for dinner.

And of course there were cos players and friends.

FandomFest Recap Day 1


FandomFest day 1 is in the books and I had a great time interacting with fans of the Victor McCain thrillers, cos players and making fun of DC comic fans (I moderate Marvel vs DC today at 10 am room C103 so guess which side I’m on).

We have a ton of space at the convention’s new digs at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center. We are in South Wing B. Today will be filled with several panels. Feel free to drop by and give me grief.

And of course there are cos play pictures.

Molly Malone’s Irish Pub Book Signing


Saturday July 23rd I’ll be at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub in St. Matthews from 6 pm until 9 pm signing my latest novel, Revenge. This is one of my favorite signings of the year. Molly’s serves up the best Irish food around and I get to spend the evening with good friends. Come out and throw down a few pints (drink responsibly and have a designated driver) and share in the fun.


Ready to go at the Prospect Starbucks. The first three people who show up and say Victor McCain for president gets a free cup of coffee on me. No book purchase necessary.

Starbucks Book Signing


I will be at Starbucks in Prospect on July 9th from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. selling and signing copies of Revenge, the newest Victor McCain thriller. I will also have copies of the other books in the series, The Hand of God, The Watchers and The Speaker with me as well.

Heather and all the rest of the fine folks at Starbucks are like a second family. I spend a great deal of time in their store when I’m in a good writing groove and they keep me topped off and running. Even if I do drink decaf.

Things will be nice and dry inside Karen’s Book Barn tomorrow. Stop by and say hello. I’ll be there signing Revenge and the other books in the Victor McCain thrillers. Lynn Tincher will also be there signing Afterthoughts and dishing on the latest hush-hush info on a certain Afterthoughts movie.
