As you may or may not know, I am originally from the small town of Covington, Ohio. Covington is about a half hour north of Dayton. This is the reason the below press release is very special to me. Thanks and I look forward to seeing a lot of new and old friends alike at the event.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COVINGTON – Former resident and highly touted horror author, TY SCHWAMBERGER, makes his first return to the area after more than five years to promote his writing at JR Clarke Public Library on Saturday, May 15th from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. JR Clarke is located at 102 Spring Street, Covington, Ohio 45318.
Beginning promptly at 11:00 am there will be a showing of his soon-to-be-released short film, Cake Batter. The film is based on one of Ty’s short stories that’s being featured in his short story collection coming out Fall 2010 by Dark Quest Books and was adapted into a screenplay and filmed by Shadetree Films out of Akron, Ohio.
After the showing of the 25-minute film (rated PG13), Ty will remain at the library until 2:00, signing copies of his first novel, Night School. There will only be a limited number of copies available for purchase at the signing, along with a very limited number of copies of the Cake Batter DVD that will be on sale. You can either bring in your existing copy of his novel or a magazine that one of this short stories appeared in or you can purchase a copy of Night School for $15.00 (this is $10.00 off the cover price) at the same table Ty will be doing the signing. Since the film hasn’t been released as of yet, pricing information won’t be available until the day of the event.
