Keith Willis (Halloween 2018)

April 28: Urban Aftermath Bookstore, 295 Hamilton Street, Albany, NY–an afternoon of authors. Join myself, Warren Onufer, Alyn Lewis, and Fran Comesanas, as we talk about books, writing, and the mysteries of life–like why you cook bacon, but bake cookies… Event begins at noon. All authors will have copies of their books available for purchasing and signing.

May 11 – 12: New Hampshire Renaissance Faire, at the beautiful Brookvale Pines Farm in Fremont, New Hampshire! This will be my second appearance at this Faire, and I’m looking forward to seeing all my NH friends (especially my talented author bud Steven M. Nedeau — also a Kyanite Press contributor!) once again. You can check out details of the Faire as they’re announced here.

Virtual Event: May 17-19: OWS CyCon. A cyber convention providing an exciting virtual venue for readers to meet new authors. I’ll be (electronically) hanging out in the Fantasy section all weekend.

May 18: Millbrook Literary Festival, Millbrook, NY. Every year, the Festival features nationally recognized authors and promotes talented local and regional writers, with panels that are accessible and interesting to all ages. This year’s festival will present many timely, thought-provoking, and thoroughly entertaining authors and illustrators participating in panel discussions, readings, and signings throughout the day at the Millbrook Library on Franklin Avenue.

June 8 – 9: NY Capital District Renaissance Festival, Indian Ladder Farms, Altamont, NY. This will be the Festival’s 6th year, and my 4th appearance. NYCDRF is my “home” festival, since it’s pretty much right in my back yard, and I’m excited to be a part of this terrific event once again. I’ll have books and all the associated dragon-y goodies again this year, including a new shipment of Arthur Pen-Dragon ballpoint pens.

November 3: Chronicle Book Fair, Glens Falls, NY–a huge event with over 100 participating authors. This will be my 5th year doing this show. (Books only.)

December: Altamont Victorian Holidays and Wintermarket — my 5th appearance at this event in the charming village of Atamont, NY. (I’ll have a full range of books and goodies for this show.)

The Dark Lord Journal (Halloween 2019)

Evil Expo is THE place to be if you love fictional villains (or if you ARE a villain!) It’s a celebration of the allure of the antagonists, the antiheroes, the mold-breakers, the iconoclasts.  Evil Expo has helpful workshops and panels on subjects ranging from literary discussions and mask-making, to critical subjects like How To Monetize The End Of The World and Hiring Good Henchpeople.

You can be part of the very first Evil Expo – for more details.
