Whatcha Do Yesterday? I Played with Demons.

Yesterday I signed DEMONS at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, which is probably the coolest bookstore that I have ever seen.  It was great!

Wanna know what Shock Totem editor Ken Wood thought of my Demons story?  He thought it was so awesome that it set his heart aflame! Or maybe he was just angry that I named the demon Tam.  Nah, I choose the setting his heart aflame thing instead.
