Author Signing in Toledo

August 11, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

I’ll be in Toledo, Ohio for a signing event! Glad to be headed back to the city where I went to college. Haven’t been back in quite a while, so I’m excited to have a chance to do a signing there!

I’ll be doing a joint signing with A.S. Coomer at Gathering Volumes in Perrysburg.

A.S. Coomer is a writer, musician, artist, and perpetual rain dog. His work has appeared in over fifty literary journals, magazines, anthologies and the like. He was nominated for the Pushcart Prize three times in 2016. His debut novel, Rush’s Deal (Hammer & Anvil Books), came out December 11th, 2016. A new paperback edition of Rush’s Deal will be published in 2018 by Lit Fest Press. The Fetishists, his second novel, was published March 20th, 2017 by Grindhouse Press.

Two new novels from A.S. Coomer will hit the shelves in 2018. Shining the Light will be published by Atlatl Press on July 6th, 2018. The Devil’s Gospel will be published by The Wild Rose Press in the second half of the year.

Matt Betts is an Ohio native and graduate of UT. He’s s a pop culture junkie—sometimes to levels that are considered unhealthy by the Surgeon General. He grew up on a steady diet of giant monsters, comic books, and horror novels, all of which creep into his own work. Matt’s speculative poetry and short fiction have appeared in a number of anthologies and journals. Matt’s first novel, the steampunk/zombie/alternate history adventure Odd Men Out was a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award for excellence in independent publishing. Matt also has two books out in 2018 – the sci-fi novel The Shadow beneath the Waves and the dark fantasy, The Boogeyman’s Intern. His poetry collections include See No Evil, Say No Evil and Underwater Fistfight.
