Our Night Out on March 24

Another successful evening where writers and readers have a chance to meet and mingle. Our featured authors were inspirational and talented. The readings were excellent. Here are just a few highlights from a fun and interesting evening.

The evening begins with a get-to-meet-you gathering of the like-minded catching up and delving deeper.

Eve Silver read from her novel Rush             There are no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who says that the game is more than that, and that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn't. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

Morgan Rhodes chilled us with a scene from her book Rebel Spring.

Auranos has been conquered and the three kingdoms—Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia—are now unwillingly united as one country called Mytica. But alluring, dangerous magic still beckons, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the world. . . .

Rio Youers teased us with the opening of Westlake Soul
Westlake dreams of a normal life—of surfing and loving again. But time is running out; Dr. Quietus is getting closer, and stronger. Can Westlake use his superbrain to recover . . . to slip his enemy’s cold embrace before it’s too late?

Our readers at Open Mic for Authors received a warm welcome and enticed us into their fictional worlds.

The audience then tormented our featured authors with the hard questions. They look as if they are really on the hot seat don't they? Oh and Kate the flowers were beautiful!
