Tanya Reimer will be the guest of Redvers Public Library in Redvers Saskatchewan on Thursday 27th November from 4pm to 7pm at a book party and signing to celebrate her first two books – Ghosts on the Prairies, a Sacred Land Story, published by Elsewhen Press (i.e. us) and Petrified published by Sunbury Press. Go along and help make it a great party.
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.
AutismCon is an exciting new day-long convention organised by and for people with autism, with talks, workshops and performances. It’s an amazing celebration of autism, where special interests are encouraged, communication comes in all forms, and the skills and talents of people with autism are clear for everyone to see. Many people with autism are fans of speculative fiction, so among the many events will be a discussion panel about science fiction and fantasy. One of our authors, Peter R. Ellis, will be on the panel. If you’re going to the convention look out for Peter.
This year’s Nine Worlds Geekfest (12th-14th August) will, for the first time, include an Expo – which has been dubbed the Geekfayre. We will be there on a table with our books. More details to follow as soon as we know them.
We’re also very proud to be an official sponsor of Nine Worlds 2016.
So, if you’re going to Nine Worlds anyway, come into the Geekfayre, say hello, have a browse and buy a book or two 😉
We look forward to seeing you there.
