M. B. Weston signs books from her series, 'The Elysian Chronicles'

If you've been to the Lewisville Borders Books in the last 3 months then you've probably met Michelle Weston. I can't remember how I came across her name but I do remember that I was following her on Twitter. One evening, she tweeted that she needed one more fan to hit 1,000. I jumped on it and tweeted back, jokingly of course, "What do I win?" Even though I declined, she sent me a book anyway and well, we've been friends ever since.

Borders Books brought her in to do a six-week writers workshop which turned out very well. So well, that she came back and did a one-shot for fantasy writers and now she's back in to sign books from her series, 'The Elysian Chronicles'. I have to admit that I didn't read the first book until about a month ago, but I was very impressed. I'll write an actual review later. Suffice it to say, that it's a wonderful read and you should come in and get a copy! You won't be dissappointed!

She will be signing books from 2pm til 4pm at the Lewisville Borders at the corner of Round Grove and I-35. Click here for a map and more events.

Joe Eisma at Boomerang Comics

Joe Eisma will be signing his latest title, 'Morning Glories #2' at Boomerang Comics on Wednesday, September 15th. Neal, the owner of Boomerang, says that they sold out of #1, but should be getting more copies in this week. I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing what the fuss is all about! Has anyone checked the first issue out, and if so, did you like it or not? Let me know!

Kevin McCarthy dies at 96; actor starred in 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'

Granted it wasn't a hit right away, this movie eventually became a cult hit. To me, it's better than the remake which had Jeff Goldblum. But then, I always think the classics are better. I do have to admit though, the scene in the remake with the human-headed dog still freaks me out to this day!

AnimeFest in Dallas on Labor Day Weekend


I was looking for some info on how long this event has been going on, but didn’t see anything on the website. If you have any history for AnimeFest, send me some info. In the meantime, it takes place over Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd through the 6th, and costs $30 a day to get in. I’ll have to pass on this one because I’m not that into Anime and the price is a little steep for me. Not judging, mind you, but I hope you get some bang for your buck! Send me photo links and let me know if you enjoyed it.
