Speculative fiction and horror writer Sean Adkins is fresh off the campaign trail after his tour of Maryland | Pennsylvania horror events. While politicians run up and down the countryside promoting stars and their stripes; Adkins remains busy promoting his worldview delivered between the covers of Wolfen: Bloodlines. This neoteric reinvention of Werewolf lore, serves up the first of multiple ShapeShift serial novels. This Author’s unique perspective was validated by convention attendees and movie-stars alike through impressive encomiums and upbeat feedback, which energized both the author and The Book Nook entourage who vendored at both events.
At HorrorFind Weekend (Gettysburg Pennsylvania), Adkins mixed and mingled with the likes of Count Gore Devol, Dee Wallace, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Malcolm McDowell, Ray Wise and Tyler Mane. His daughter Madison, participated in HorrorFind’s Weekend Costume Contest, where she stole the show and received Children’s Category Award of 2nd place. Competing against nearly 50 contestants, an impressive score for Sean’s daughter. She managed her horror characterization well while sharing the stage with Dee Williams, Ken Foree, Lisa Marie, Grant Cramer, among others – as over 300 theatre-goers applauded from the seats below.
At MonsterMania Con (Hunt Valley Maryland), Adkins eagerly promoted the Wolfen: Bloodlines tale of feuds, full moons and Lycanthropic self-discovery accompanied by his six foot, fully animatronic Werewolf sidekick, which he brought to the Con. Certainly a sight to behold, if not feared. Brave souls ventured forth in reach of the beast’s ferocious claws to purchase their pre-release novel(s) signed by the author and often took photographs wrapped in animatronic Wolfen arms.
The ‘Savior of the Universe’ himself, Sam J. Jones (Starling Film’s Flash Gordon-1980), walked away with his very own copy of Wolfen: Bloodlines. Sean, the only author allowed to conduct a reading at MonsterMania Con (Kudos to The Book Nook Team!), presented in the Maryland room. Fans of his novel, and horror alike, listened to his favored excerpts, then queried him regarding his inspirations.
Regarding Sean Adkins, Ms. Quesinberry stated, “the Book Nook Team was happy to represent Wolfen: Bloodlines author Sean Adkins at both horror events.
