Fanboy Expo Nashville

Fanboy Expo Nashville 2016

I had a wonderful time at Fanboy Expo Nashville 2016. I loved meeting readers, fellow authors, and artists. A few of the movie and TV guests even stopped by to say hi.

Fanboy Expo will be in Knoxville June 24-26 at the Convention Center located downtown. I'll be joined by fellow local author Michael David Anderson. Stop by for free bookmarks, and I'll have signed Hannaria Series paperbacks available for $10 each.

Have an awesome day!
