  1. Reblogged this on eSpec Books and commented:

    The wait is over! In a few short hours we’ll be heading over to Philcon to unleash our newest book on the fandom community. Here’s hoping we see you there! If we are in the same place we were last year you can find us at the back of the dealer’s room against the peg board. :::grin::: but not stuck to it.
