The Day of Mystical Blood Lust, this past Saturday in Lexington, KY was a huge success for the first year event. The day began with the authors, speakers, and vendors coming in to set up their area. Most of us only knew each other over the internet but once we met it was like old friends getting together again. Everyone was friendly, excited, and full of energy.
The vendors and authors area was buzzing. David Nelson Bradsher debuted his new book, The Vampire Sonnets at the event and was so taken by the charity for the event, Wolf Run Refuge Center, that he is donating a $1 from each book to that organization. Paul Lewis, a local author discussed his book Lifeless while local witches Dana Millan and Cyndi Farmer discussed their beliefs as they are incorporated into the Halloween season. C.J. Ellisson, author of Vampire Vacation spoke about vampires and sex while Denise Verrico discussed her Immortyl Series and the history of vampires and science fiction. Both were very interesting talks as was Lori Baker’s discussion on crop circles. Kelly Hunt Collins and Serena Gordon as local psychics that awed us with their stories of spirits and the psychic realm. But the hit od the event was Razz, a local wolf that was brought by his handler, Savannah Massey who told the group about Wolf Run and all of it’s wonderful educational and rescue endeavors.
The event was a lot of fun. Everyone made a lot of new friends. The authors saw how much they were loved for their wonderful stories and how much the fans really appreciate them. Many of these authors drove or flew from Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio.
There was a total of 74 total in attendance. The evening ended with a fun Halloween Ball with a few crazy costumes.
It was a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed themselves while making a lot of new friends.
