In September we will be at FantasyCon by the Sea in Scarborough. It will be our first FantasyCon, so if you’re going to be there please come and say hello to us, we’d love to see you. We’ll be in the Victoria Room selling our books all weekend, and we have a launch party on Saturday for our two latest titles Instrument of Peace by Rebecca Hall and Mandigo and the Hellhounds by Anders Reemark.
While we’re at FantasyCon we will be having a launch party for our two latest fantasy titles.
Mandigo and the Hellhounds, by Anders Reemark, is the book in the Mandigo trilogy. Translated from the Danish by Nina Sokol it is a classic epic fantasy story, suitable for younger readers but just as gripping for older readers.
When he was eight, Mandigo found a baby on a raft in the river and carried her to Greta, the wise woman who lived in the forest. By the time he was twelve, Greta had taught him some magic, but an evil force was looking for the baby and Greta decided to leave for the baby’s safety. Mandigo would have liked to go with her but his world is suddenly turned upside down with the arrival of a fearsome knight accompanied by a pack of Hellhounds…
The launch party is in the Harbourlights Restaurant in the Grand Hotel from 12-1pm on Saturday. If you’re coming to FantasyCon, please join us at the party.
We will be at FantasyCon again in October. This year in the old walled city of Chester.
We will, of course, be in the Dealers Room for the whole weekend. We will be selling all of our titles.
On Saturday morning at 11am we are having a launch event in the Jubilee Room (shared with Horrific Tales) at which we will have readings from three of our latest books as well as some refreshments and the opportunity to chat to the authors and get them to sign your copy of their book (which we can sell you!).
