On October 21st we will be holding our final book signing of the year. We’ll be hosting four great authors and they will be here from 11-1pm. Our guests are:

Raymond Bolton

This Portland sci-fi/fantasy author will be signing his novel, Awakening. Mike Resnik said that Awakening “presents us with an intricate and interesting problem, characters you care for, aliens who are alien, and a carefully-thought-out future.”

Sandra Denbo and Tamarine Vilar

This mother/daughter team write The Unwanted Series. This delightful and intriguing mystery series is hard to put down! The fourth book in the series, Unwanted Family, was recently released.

M. Timothy Murray

This California sci-fi author will be signing his debut novel, Thumar, which is a thrilling, romantic space opera.

Thumar and the first three books in The Unwanted Series are currently in stock. You can use your trade credit for 25% off. We expect to have Awakening and the fourth Unwanted installment in time for the signing. You are also welcome to bring copies from home for the authors to sign. Can’t make the event? No worries. We’ll have signed copies on hand after the signing.

We are currently working on booking authors for next year’s signings so check back in a couple months for more details. If you are an author, or know an author, who is looking to do a signing in our store, please contact our event coordinator, Kim Mainord, for details.
