It’s part of the Shades and Shadows Reading Series for the LA Lit Crawl! I’ve read for Shades and Shadows before and it was such a great experience. This time I’ll be joined by 4 other authors all reading excerpts work in horror or science fiction or dark fantasy. And we’ll be reading at Blastoff Comics, a beautiful comic store in the arts district in North Hollywood. Check out the LA Lit Crawl website for a full list of the events that night.
