Horror in the East

Bloody hell, I enjoyed that! This weekend saw the inaugural Horror in the East convention in Lowestoft, a place which, as you know, is very close to my heart (not least because I pretty much destroyed it in THEM OR US!).

I go to a lot of events, and I decide not to go to many more. I’m a fussy sod – much as I genuinely love talking to other authors and publishers etc., I have to say I prefer meeting readers. Many conventions seem to be one thing or the other, but Horror in the East was a straight down the middle collision of both. Relaxed, informal and well supported by both the local and the horror community, it was an absolute pleasure to be there. Congratulations to Emma Bunn and Jo Wilde for putting together such a superb event. I’ll be back for more Horror in the East on 1st – 2nd November 2013, and I hope to see many of you there.
