Hello Book Lovers,
My book, Everdome, and plenty of other awesome books are being launched on Saturday.
Here’s the press release:
Join us Saturday October 5th at 4 PM, at 3 Brewers (240 Sparks, Ottawa) for the launch of seven extraordinary novels!
Humour, romance, sci-fi, fantasy, and reality TV? There’s something in here to please everyone!
There will be author readings, you can get your books signed, and we’ll be drawing absolutely fabulous door prizes. Plus, there will be much fun and merriment!
ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: the elevator is situated in the back of the pub. Please ask staff upon entry and they will guide you to it!
Because of the large numbers we usually bring in, they asked us to tell our guests they will have a choice from the group menu. We went with option number one; there will be gluten-free options such as gluten-free buns or lettuce wraps, and there will also be vegan alternatives on site.
About the books
Skylark by S. M. Carrière – Canadian sci-fi
When the outermost interstellar Way Station suddenly ceases communications with Earth, Commander Skye and Team 6 are sent to investigate. They discover a new alien threat—the insectoid Ragnar, who move through space consuming resources like a virus. Humanity and daemon-kind realize they must unite in the fight to protect Earth.
Everdome by Éric Desmarais – Urban fantasy
For thirteen lucky contestants, when a man dressed as a knight offers them the opportunity to visit their favourite fantasy world as an immersive reality show, there’s only one answer they can give: YES!
The impressive realism is beyond anything they can believe and some of them start to wonder why.
The Stealth Lovers by Cait Gordon – Sci-fi comedy/romance
After submitting to mandatory conscription,
two young men begin Basic Training, or, “Vacay in Hay.”
Little do they know the bond they feel will lead them to become the venerable military pairing known as
A Congress of Ships by Stephen Graham King – Sci-fi
In a desolate system on the outer edge of Pan Galactum, the skin of the universe has ruptured, tearing open a portal to an alternate reality. Witnessed only by the sentient science vessel N’Dea, a massive, battered ship falls through, housing a community of refugees fleeing an enemy that has pursued them across the cold reaches of space for decades.
But have they come alone?
The Wayward Spider by John Haas – Comic fantasy
All Spider wants is to seek his fortune as a thief. Is that too much to ask? Must be, since a break in gone wrong leaves him babysitting a powerful magic-user with sporadic control over his spells, and even less of a grip on functioning in society. And that’s just where it starts. Each misadventure takes Spider further from his goals, but he’s about to learn that sometimes we get what we need instead of what we want.
RunJ Run by Su J Sokol – Psychological thriller
Attractive, wildly unconventional, and happy in an open relationship with his partner Annie, Zak seems to embody everything missing from Jeremy’s life, but when the arrest and death of a marginalized student at the Brooklyn high school where they both teach trigger Zak’s mental breakdown and slow descent, Jeremy and Annie are compelled to cross boundaries, both external and internal, in a desperate attempt to save him.
Love and Lemonade by Jamieson Wolf – LGBT
Blaine and his friends haven’t always been lucky in love. They’ve stumbled throughout lust, hoping to find their hearts desire, or at least a good lay. They have made their way through life, stumbling a few times, and have finally found their way to comfort and acceptance…Or have they? There are all kinds of love in the world and Blaine and his friends will have to find the love that works for them.
Hope to see you there,
