Launch of Future Perfect in Saffron Walden @ Intelligent Penguin
Dec 11 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Future Perfect cover imageKatrina MountfortKatrina Mountfort will be launching her debut novel Future Perfect on the evening of December 11th in Saffron Walden at Intelligent Penguin in Gold Street.

Future Perfect is the first book in the Blueprint Trilogy which takes us to a future in which men and women are almost identical, and personal relationships are forbidden. Following a bio-terrorist attack, the population now lives within comfortable Citidomes. MindValues advocate acceptance and non-attachment. The BodyPerfect cult encourages a tall thin androgynous appearance, and looks are everything. A dark undercurrent runs through the trilogy: the enforcement of conformity through fear, the fostering of distorted and damaging attitudes towards forbidden love, manipulation of appearance and even the definition of beauty. Join Katrina to celebrate the launch of her book with a drink, hear a reading, buy a copy and have it signed! What better way to spend a December evening?

It’s also worth saying a big thank you to Intelligent Penguin, a digital agency, who offered the use of their venue in exchange for a donation to a charity of Katrina’s choice. In keeping with the themes of the book, Katrina chose Beat, a charity providing helplines, online support and a network of UK-wide self-help groups to help adults and young people in the UK beat their eating disorders.

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.
