Join us July 31st from 10am to 2pm with Special Guests Ties That Bind Publishing and Artist Olivia Rombak!

Ties That Bind Publishing is a family-owned and operated publishing agency. Husband and wife, William and LaTia had always talked about their dreams of writing stories. Initially, about their own adventurous lives; and with the arrival of their son in 2017, the dreams grew! With LaTia’s love for reading, writing & poetry, William’s uncanny storytelling & their son CJ’s comedic and charismatic personality, they knew it was a must to make their dreams a reality.

Guest Author Bradley Beaulieu & Inthreadable Designs

Join us July 24th from 10am to 2pm with local fantasy author Bradley Beaulieu (12pm-2pm) and Inthreadable Designs!

Bradley P. Beaulieu began writing his first fantasy novel in college, but in the way of these things, it was set aside as life intervened. As time went on, though, Brad realized that his love of writing and telling tales wasn’t going to just slink quietly into the night. The drive to write came back full force in the early 2000s, at which point Brad dedicated himself to the craft, writing several novels and learning under the guidance of writers like Nancy Kress, Joe Haldeman, Tim Powers, Holly Black, Michael Swanwick, Kij Johnson, and many more.

Brad and his novels have garnered many accolades and most anticipated lists, including two Hotties–the Debut of the Year and Best New Voice–on Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist, a Gemmell Morningstar Award nomination for The Winds of Khalakovo and more.

Get a peek at his books before the event at https://www.amazon.com/Bradley-P-Beaulieu/e/B004C1TZ04/

Inthreadable Designs is back to Studio Moonfall with all sorts of new crafty creations! Check out all the new things she’s working on at https://www.facebook.com/SimplyInthreadable

Guest Author Tea Krulos and Artist David Beyer

Join us July 17th from 10am to 2pm for the Moonfall Market!

This week, we’vre hijacking talent from Milwaukee and getting a taste of Tea’s Weird Week with Tea Krulos along with artist David Beyer.

Tea Krulos is a freelance journalist and author from Milwaukee, WI. Some of his favorite subjects to explore include subcultures and social movements, weird news, the paranormal, and strange personalities. He also writes about local art and entertainment, lifestyle, and food/drink for publications like Milwaukee Magazine, Shepherd Express, and Milwaukee Record. His five non-fiction books are American Madness, Wisconsin Legends & Lore, Apocalypse Any Day Now, Monster Hunters, and Heroes in the Night. He’s also been published in magazines like Fortean Times and Scandinavian Traveler and writes a weekly column called “Tea’s Weird Week” at teakrulos.com.

Krulos was awarded a Gold Milwaukee Press Club Excellence in Journalism Award in 2021 in the “short hard news feature” category for an article he wrote for Milwaukee Magazine on “citizen journalists” titled “Reporting Live From the Street.” His book American Madness won the National Indie Excellence Book Award in the “Current Events” category. His book Monster Hunters was a finalist in the 2015 Midwest Book Awards.

And dropping in from the midwest’s comic cons, we’ve got David Beyer! I’d say more but couldn’t find a bio to steal from the internet 😀

Guest Author Luke Morris and Dire Need Zine

Join us July 10th from 10am to 2pm for the Moonfall Market!

This week, we’re jumping into the deep end of self-publishing with author Luke Morris and guest publisher, Dire Need Zine.

Luke Morris is the author of Hello, Halloween (which I illustrated), along with all sorts of other good stuff. Here’s his bio!

When he’s not writing weird fiction, Luke J. Morris teaches high school English and Creative Writing, trains Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, reads comic books and horror novels, and spends time with his wife, five kids, and two cats. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy, an M.A. in Creative Writing, and a black belt in JKD/MMA, which makes him feel undeservedly special. A native of cold Chicago, he now lives in the blistering heat of Phoenix, Arizona. See his weird work at lukejmorris.com

Dire Need Zine inspires to create a platform showcasing underground artworks, poetry, and music to those in the Midwest region. Check out their work at https://www.facebook.com/direneedzine

Moonfall Market – June 26th, 2022

Join us June 26th from 10am to 2pm with local authors Al Lytle and Toi Blasier with artist Frank Lopez!

Here’s a sneak peek at Al and Toi’s Gate of Divinity series:

After the first war in Heaven, Lucifer’s defeat and banishment was all but definitive. While peace reigned for a millennium, the Father of Lies dwelled in the void of the Pits of Hell. Fueled by vengeance and blinded by his destiny during his imprisonment, Lucifer plotted against those who would stand in his way. Upon his release, Lucifer sets off a series of events that draws the attention of a handful of angels as Heaven remains skeptical of any danger. In an unsanctioned mission to thwart Lucifer’s plans, a small group of angels set off on their own. Do they have the fortitude to endure Hell’s forces and convince Heaven or will Lucifer threaten all of creation?

Learn more at https://gatesofdivinity.wordpress.com/

So, stop by this Sunday to meet our special guests and see the things they’re making. Be sure to say hi to the Moonfall Minions and grab a sandwich from Hydn Cheese while you’re here!

Stop by Studio Moonfall this month to enter the drawing for the June Bug Jamboree.

There’ll be four grand prize winners but the real reward is the bugs we ate along the way.

The Grand Prize includes six buggy buttons in a magical jar of love, an illustration of what we all look like on the inside by Donovan Scherer, a pack of 12 squirrel boy postcards, a delightful bar of patchouli-scented ZomBean soap, a random mushroom sticker, and the envy of all your friends.

Guest Author M.P. McDonald & Artist Toastradahmus

Guest author and artist events are back for the summer at Studio Moonfall!

Join us June 12th from 10am to 2pm with local author M.P. McDonald and artist Toastradahmus!

M.P. McDonald lives in southeastern Wisconsin. When not writing, favorite pastimes are swimming, reading, and watching baseball and football.

Always fascinated with post-apocalyptic books and movies, M.P. created a virus in 2016 that shares some scary similarities with the pandemic. It’s airborne and those infected still want to socialize because they don’t feel sick, at first.

You can read more about the virus I created in my Sympatico Syndrome Series, and the parallel series, Sympatico Syndrome World.

Get a peek at her books before the event at https://www.studiomoonfall.com/artistalley/m-p-mcdonald/

For the creepy and cool toy photography of Toastradahmus, check out https://www.instagram.com/toastradahmus/ before out event.
