Saturday, October 19, 2019, 5 pm to 9 pm — THE DARKEST GATEWAY  & THE DAEMON DEVICE book launch and Sleepy Hollow Event at the Etiwanda Historical Society’s Chaffey-Garcia House 7150 Etiwanda Avenue, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739. My event is free and you will need to GET YOUR HAND STAMPED to enter. Tickets are required for the Sleepy Hollow event and Tour: Adults $12, Children $7, Kids 5 and under are Free. Order tickets RIGHT NOW!

A spectacular evening filled with spooky stuff. First, at 5 pm, join me in the barn for my FREE event (you must get your hand stamped at the front of the house): a reading of BOTH books (including the first in my new steampunk trilogy), a free raffle of the items below, and selling and signing books. And then, beginning at 6 pm, get yourself a ticket to get in to  shop for crafts and food AND to take the Sleepy Hollow tour (several tours available during the evening) and I’ll be part of the Sleepy Hollow re-creation by reading part of Washington Irving’s tale! And THEN the Headless Horseman makes an appearance at the end of the evening! There’s food to purchase and re-enactors and craft booths and fun things to do for the whole family. Don’t miss this event! There is a small fee for the Sleepy Hollow event and tour but I hope you will stay for that event as it is pretty darned cool and the money helps preserve the Historical Chaffey-Garcia House.
