Okay, the wait is almost over. After a pretty long spell of preparation, challenges and long blissful work hours, my new book SIRENS will be making its debut in a special variant edition this weekend at the Baltimore Comic Con. The con organizer, Marc Nathan, was the gentleman who set me up with BOOM!, so this seemed like the perfect way to thank him.

To celebrate the book’s official mass release on September 17th, I am going on my first-ever national signing tour. Six stores and two conventions in two weeks! And all but one stop will include an exclusive variant cover! Here is my schedule (some of the signing times could be extended if attendance warrants):

COLLECTOR'S PARADISE (Signing) (17 Sep 2014)
Winnetka, California

Wednesday, September 17th
Collector’s Paradise, Winnetka, CA, 6pm – 8 pm. The variant cover spotlights SIRENS villain Niada and the model for that character, Diana Knight, will be attending to sign copies. Also planning to attend is Akira Lane, the model for the Siren Kage and Jennifer Nguyen (Mazu) both of whom appear on the double covers that form the main image of the regular edition. Other models that will appear in upcoming issues may attend, but nothing's confirmed yet.

My wife Phoenicia Flynn (Fanisha) will be accompanying me to autograph the books along with several other cast members who have consented to pop into the store and autograph copies, including April Hunter yet again! This will likely be the largest gathering of cast members for the tour and a fitting finish to what promises to be a very exciting—and exhausting— experience.

See you all soon!
