Please join us with authors Kris Faryn, Danielle Orsino, and Rue Sparks.
Kris Faryn, author of “Song of Destiny” – Seventeen-year-old Korrina will do anything to stop her voice from killing again. Including trusting too-hot-for-words, book-nerd Luke, who has an uncanny ability to silence her song with his touch. But when she discovers she’s a mythological Siren prophesied to break an ancient curse, and that those closest to her have been keeping secrets, she’s not sure who—or what—to trust. Now she must choose. Wield her song to fulfill her destiny and risk unleashing its power to kill. Or turn her back on her destiny to save those she loves.
Danielle Orsino, author of “Birth of the Fae: Locked out of Heaven” – Ride on the backs of fire-breathing dragons with the Dark Fae and watch the Light Fae play in the shadows of primitive humanity as they build their magical world. Abandoned by their creator, two factions of powerful angels remain on earth after the Great War with Lucifer. They struggle to comprehend their Creator’s plan while their angel wings, a symbol of their angelic lineage, slowly and painfully decay. With no hope of returning to the Shining Kingdom, two groups of angels denounce their angelic lineage and develop into separate factions – the Court of Light, led by Queen Aurora, a former Virtue Angel, and the Court of Dark, ruled by King Jarvok, a former Power Brigade Angel. The two monarchs have opposing views on how to govern their kin, but the one belief they agree on is that human worship equals power.
Rue Sparks, author of “The Stars Will Guide Us Back” – Thirteen short stories encapsulating the elements of speculative fiction and magical realism travel the themes of mental health, loss, mortality, self-confidence, and finding hope through difficult circumstances. Explore the immersive worlds within, along with a range of peculiar, distinct, and queer characters. Sometimes confidence comes from knowing we have no other choice, and the ones who rescue us come from the strangest places. Dark and light collide in this collection that highlights the liminal spaces of the human experience.
