On Thursday, May 28 I will be at Book Expo America to sign copies of The Cure. This is going to be a fun, fun day! Thousands of book sellers, book buyers, libraries, and book stores will be in attendance, and this will be a great opportunity to get the word out about my books.

Afterwards, I'll either be grabbing lunch with some of my HWA compatriots or cruising the floor and then heading home. Either way, it will be a wonderful day. Much better than the last time I did a BEA signing and only 1 small box of the books showed up from the publisher.

My allotted time is 11am to 1pm, at the Samhain Publishing booth in the Jacob Javits Center.

The Private Sector – a Guest Blog by Leigh M. Lane
The world of corporate greed runs rampant after the government collapses, leaving police, fire, and social services in the hands of the wealthy. Debtor prisons for the lower and middle classes overflow and quarantine camps have filled to capacity, turning the streets into a personal battleground for terrorists fighting against a world headed toward ruin as resources run dry and civilization becomes ruled by The Private Sector.
“In the tradition of 1984, Leigh M. Lane delivers a terrifying vision of the future—a horrific future that may not be so distant after all….” —Lisa Mannetti, Stoker Award-Winning author of The Gentling Box and Deathwatch
"A versatile literary maestro, Lane's characters breathe, her language sings, and her plotting is nothing short of remarkable. You owe it to yourself to give her a read, no matter what kind of fiction you like. You'll love her work. I promise." —Trent Zelazny, Nightmare Award-…
WHC/Stoker Weekend Wrapup

A writer never gets to do everything he or she wants at a convention. For most of us, there are simply not enough hours to spend time with every friend, to meet all the Facebook friends, to make new friends, to conduct business, to speak on/attend panels, to volunteer to help out with the running of the show....
With that being said, this year at World Horror/Stoker Banquet weekend in Atlanta, I managed to cram a lot into 4 days. Mainly by limiting sleep to 4 hours a night!! And even then, I didn't see everyone/do everything I wanted.
I arrived on Wed. and was picked up at the airport by John Farris. A great guy, he coordinated all the media activities (radio, video) for the con as well as getting many of the guests and attendees back and forth from the airport. We arrived at the hotel and had a nice drink with Lisa Tuttle and my good friend Erinn Kemper. Then I said hello to my other good friend Rena Mason, and it was off to bed. Thursday would be be a l…
Heading to Atlanta in a few hours for the World Horror Convention and Bram Stoker Awards weekend. This is going to be an action-packed con for me. I'm moderating 3 panels (The Importance of Beta Readers, Horror and the Headlines, and YA Literacy), co-presenting the award for Superior YA Novel with the great Christopher Golden, and doing two book signings. In between, it's lunch with my editor, Don D'Auria, hanging with friends, and maybe hitting the jacuzzi. I'm also launching 2 books at the event, The Cure and Winterwood.
