This past Saturday, I signed and spoke at the 2nd Annual Albatwitch Festival. Thanks to everyone who came out. A good time was had by all, I think, and I’m told there will be a third festival next year. (The hope is to make it a regular yearly event, similar to the Mothman Festival).

I also met some folks to interview down the road for a non-fiction book about Central Pennsylvanian supernatural folklore that I’ve been making notes toward for the last year.

After the Albatwitch Festival, I had the honor of legally officiating my first wedding. It was a non-religious ceremony, and the bride and groom (dear friends of mine) asked me to keep it as short as possible, so I did. It was only twelve minutes from the initial greeting to “You may kiss the bride”. Then we all went to an awesome reception where I got to relax with non-writer friends, and talk about non-writer stuff, and even get my groove on the dance floor.

Thanks to Nick and Lindsey for asking me to be there for their special day, and thanks to my “soccer moms” for allowing me to escape the writing world, if only for an afternoon.

Reverend Keene and the happy couple.

Have you listened to my podcast, THE HORROR SHOW WITH BRIAN KEENE? You don’t need any special equipment. A simple old computer will do. Last week, bookseller M. Stephen Lukac discussed the fall of Borders and the future of B&N. This week, we interview musician Xander Harris. Next week, F. Paul Wilson and Thomas Monteleone talk about their thirty-year friendship. Click here to listen.
