As usual, we will be at Novacon in Nottingham in November (try saying that after a few pan-galactic gargleblasters!).

A panoply of our authors will be joining us, and participating in various panels. We will be co-hosting a party early on Saturday evening (in the downstairs bar of course). We will be in the Dealers Room so come and say Hello, browse our books (and please buy some – it makes the authors so happy, it’s a delight to see their eyes light up and their little faces beam with pleasure; especially so close to Christmas, it might mean they can afford to put a log on the fire after all on Christmas Day – no pressure!). We will also be launching three paperbacks at Novacon this year:
Sailor to a Siren by Zoë Sumra,
SmartYellow™ by J A Christy, and
Forbidden Alliance, the second book in Katrina Mountfort’s dystopian Blueprint trilogy.
There will be copies of the incredible and innovative An Android Awakes by Mike French and Karl Brown, which is published on Friday 13th (just to tempt fate!).
We will also have exclusive advance copies for sale of Bookworm IV: Full Circle, the fourth and final book in the Bookworm series by Christopher Nuttall, which is officially published on the 23rd November.

There will be flying saucers too 😉

Sailor to a Siren – Launch party @ Novacon 45
Nov 14 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

If you’re going to be at Novacon 45 in Nottingham over the weekend of the 14/15th November, come and join us for our party on Saturday evening and also for our three book launches over the weekend.

Zoë SumraOn Saturday morning from 11-12 in the Downstairs Bar we’ll be launching Sailor to a Siren by Zoë Sumra. This is a space opera novel with significant nods to the gangland thriller genre. It’s a great debut from Zoë and establishes her as a name to watch in epic space opera. The depth of her characters, the breadth of her world-building, the ambition and longevity of her story-arcs spanning multiple generations of families, all make this a first step in what is likely to be a fascinating and enthralling universe. As Jaine Fenn said “If you like your space opera fast and violent, this book is for you”.

There will be drinks, books and Zoë (obviously – although as she’s very pregnant at the moment I suppose there’s a chance she might go into labour early and have to give it a miss).

SmartYellow™ – Launch party @ Novacon 45

jacavatarOn Saturday afternoon from 2-3 in the Downstairs Bar we’ll be launching SmartYellow™ by J A Christy. This offers a worryingly plausible and chilling glimpse into an alternate Britain. For the sake of order and for the benefit of more fortunate members of society, those seen as socially undesirable are marked with SmartYellow™, making it easier for them to be controlled and maintained in a state of fruitless inactivity. Writer, J A Christy, turns an understanding and honest eye not only onto the weak, who have failed to cope with life, but also onto those who ruthlessly exploit them for their own ends. At times tense and threatening, at times tender and insightful, SmartYellow™ is a rewarding and thought-provoking read.

As well as drinks and books, J A Christy will be there to read from and sign copies of her book.

Katrina MountfortOn Sunday morning from 11-12 in the Downstairs Bar we’ll be launching Forbidden Alliance by Katrina Mountfort. This is the second book in the Blueprint trilogy that takes us to a future in which men and women are almost identical, and personal relationships are forbidden. More than sixteen years have passed since Caia and Mac, now renamed Cathy and Michael, fled their oppressive lives in the Citidome in Future Perfect (the first of the trilogy), although the plight of those who remain behind is never far from their minds. In addition to the issues explored in the first book, Forbidden Alliance poses additional questions, including those of leadership, family loyalties and whether it is possible to justify the sacrifice of human lives for the greater good.

Along with the drinks and books, Katrina will be on hand to read from her book and sign copies. What’s more there’ll be Parma Violets (Katrina’s favourite – so please come along to stop her from eating them all).

Katrina MountfortOn Saturday afternoon from 5-6pm in the Downstairs Bar we’ll be launching Freedom’s Prisoners by Katrina Mountfort. This is the third book in the Blueprint trilogy that takes us to a future in which men and women are almost identical, and personal relationships are forbidden. Tensions have escalated since the breakout. Michael and his army of rebels may have won the first battle in their fight against the Citidome authorities, but can they win a war? The Citidomes are fighting back and no-one is safe any more as RotorFighters rain down fire on defenceless villages destroying them and their inhabitants. Freedom’s Prisoners explores betrayal, guilt, hope and endurance in an explosive conclusion to the Blueprint trilogy.

Along with the drinks and books, Katrina will be on hand to read from her book and sign copies.

Aug 4 – Aug 6 all-day

Elsewhen PressWe will be back at Nine Worlds Geekfest again this year (4-6th August). The vendors will be inside the convention, not in a separate Expo like last year, so we should be easy to find. Come and say hello, have a browse, buy some books. We will have some new books that will be on sale for the first time at Nine Worlds, and a couple that we will be launching there (on Saturday); we expect to be joined by some of our authors too – more details closer to the day. Hope to see you there too.

Oh, and did we mention that we’re Gold Sponsor for Nine Worlds this year?
