CreepyCon, a horror-themed fan convention in Knoxville, Tenn., is scheduled at the Knoxville Convention Center Aug. 25 through-27, 2023 (Friday through Sunday). Horror author Isaac Thorne will be teaming with his longtime cover designer Ellezor at her table for the entire weekend with hardbacks and paperbacks for sale. Ellezor will be selling her horror and fantasy-themed art prints, coloring books, and tarot deck.
“I’ve never been able to attend CreepyCon in the past, either as fan or author, so I’m incredibly excited for this opportunity,” Isaac says. “The table is Ellezor’s, so our weekend there is mostly hers, but I will have some books on-hand for sale as well. Ellezor’s covers are a crucial component in making my work visible to readers. The Hell Spring cover, in particular, seems to generate quite a bit of interest from people who visit her table.”
He adds that CreepyCon is only the third convention at which he and Ellezor have appeared together this year, but that they’re planning appearances at others for 2024 and beyond. “We’re going to expand our tabling in the future,” Isaac explains. “In addition to revisiting the conventions we’ve done this year, we’re going to start tabling at a few author-center conventions as well as some more horror-themes ones.
“I’ve always wanted to do more conventions, but it’s only recently that life changes have allowed me to do so. I’m looking forward to meeting more horror fans.”
