Independent Bookstore Day

We’re gonna wing it.

Hey oh wow it’s Independent Bookstore Day!

I’m juggling a lot of projects at the moment so we’re just going to make things up as we go along. Will it be cool? Maybe. Heck if I know.

$1 books? Big Little Library fundraising? Guest authors? Food trucks? Magicians? Special celebrity guests? Hatching dinosaur eggs? Spaghetti?

I don’t know if any of those things will happen but maybe they will so just come support the indie-est bookstore there is with Studio Moonfall.What we will DEFINITELY have will be the things we always have – books by independent authors, art by local creators and folks from the comic con world, a bunch of used books, and all the other little oddities you can find at Studio Moonfall – 5031 7th Avenue.

Special Guest – Author Meg Bonney

Locally made books bringing you to another world at Studio Moonfall!

Get the newest book by Kenosha author, Meg Bonney!

Her sequel to Everly is almost here so if you haven’t read the first yet, here’s a glimpse…Madison Rosewood on her 18th birthday is about to graduate and head off toward a big, bright future that any kid would kill for: a full ride on a track scholarship, the world’s greatest best friend, and an aunt that has always provided for her. The problem? Madison just wants to find her birth parents, even if it costs her all of the above.

When her Aunt Ruth is kidnapped and taken to a hidden world called Everly, all of Madison’s plans are put on hold. Guided by a mysterious stranger, Madison and her best friend follow Aunt Ruth’s kidnappers through a portal into Everly. Traveling through fairy lit caverns and towering oak tree forests Madison quickly realizes that behind Everly’s beauty is a world of magic, violence, and shocking truths about her family.

There, armed only with an enchanted sword and a sharp tongue, she battles her way past deceptive witches and bounty hunters to attempt a dangerous rescue that changes both her and Everly’s future forever.

Two Year Bookshopiversary

After opening a brick and mortar bookstore just in time for a pandemics and riots, Studio Moonfall has made it to two years!!

Have you been here yet? It’s pretty cool.

Originally, it was just meant to be a place for me to do my work and sell my books for when I wasn’t off doing comic cons, or as a backup in case all the shows shut down for some unforeseen reason…

But it’s become waaaaaay more than that!

Along with being half taken over by a used bookstore, the shop is full of the work of other artists and independent authors. If you’re looking for a new favorite indie creator, that’s what it’s here to do.

In fact, that’s why I’m cancelling my original, AMAZING plan for Halloween. Trunk’r’Treat Comic Con will have to wait until next year.

On top of working on the next Color of Kenosha book, I’m getting ready for a huge indie author conference in Las Vegas. There’ll be 1700 authors who have written and self-published there books or are just getting started. And I’m working on setting up this tiny, little shop to feature all their work.

So, while I have to hold off on a big two year bookshopiversary celebration, we’ve got something big to look forward to for year three.

Plus, we have plenty of other fun things to do. Check out all the upcoming events we’re having on Sundays at Studio Moonfall:

– Free Book Friday – Every Friday 10am to 7pm – Stop in and get a free used book
– Artist Luke Daab & Author T.R. Nickel
– Author D. Lieber (Book Release!)
– Halloween! I’ve already got a pumpkin full of candy so throw on that costume and come on down!

Head to the Facebook events to stay up to date on event details.

See you at Studio Moonfall!

Reanimated… With Help!

Gotta give credit where credit is due!

AKA: Whoopsy!!

If you have the original version of the Zombie Guide to English Grammar, you’ll know that I had illustrated for another author, Derrick Murphy. When it no longer fit his brand and didn’t have a place on his bookshelf, I took it off his hands to “reanimate” it. With updated illustrations, formatting, and a healthy dose of spit shine, I gave the book a second chance at life.

But there was somebody else involved who I let slip through the cracks!

Meet Suzanne Gochenouer!

She’s the author who originally wrote the “welcome to becoming a zombie story” which all these grammar lessons were applied to. And I totally missed that when republishing the book :O

So, now the book is updated with credit given where it ought to have been in the first place along with a BIG FAT SORRY I SCREWED UP, SUZANNE!!!

Check out her editing work and keep an eye out for her upcoming stories at https://transformationaleditor.com

And check out the Zombie Guide to English Grammar, brought to life by Suzanne, Derrick, and me, at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B089TS15YV
