Hello and welcome to the latest issue of The Ghoulish Times. My name is Max Booth III and this is my spooky newsletter.
First, because I know many of you are waiting on this specific announcement: vendor applications for Ghoulish Book Festival 2024 are officially open for the next 24 hours only (until Sunday, August 27, 10am CST).
GBF ’24 will fall on March 15, 16, 17 and once again be held in downtown San Antonio.
Apply for a vendor table HERE.
Standard badges will go on sale in September.
Come down to our bookstore tonight for an ass whoopin’, because we’re hosting a very special event called SPOOKY SMACKDOWN, which will consist of wrestling-themed horror stories read by several authors, followed by a screening of a “secret” movie.
Scheduled to read: Lucas “Big Daddy Cool” Mangum, Shane “The Hammer” McKenzie, Susan “The Shark” Snyder, John "The Man of So, So Many Cheese Variations" Baltisberger, and Max “The Ghoul” Booth.
The event kicks off at 6pm CST. View the event page HERE otherwise come on down to Ghoulish Books at 9330 Corporate Drive, Suite 702, Selma, TX 78154. The event is FREE.
Warren Wagner’s The Only Safe Place Left is the Dark comes out on Tuesday! Have you pre-ordered your copy yet?
Earlier this week, I discovered I made a very silly mistake back in April when we initially set up our bookstore.
It turns out there is a far less-complicated way to inventory our stock—specifically, there’s an app that allows me to scan barcodes with my phone, which I didn’t know about.
So for the last two days Lori and I have been going nuts re-inventorying our entire store so it’s consistent with the new app’s system.
We aren’t quite done, but I’m planning on knocking the rest out this morning before we get super busy.
The good news is this means we are so much closer now to launching the bookstore’s website, which will have all of our stock available to buy online too. I’m hopeful we can get it going by next weekend.
