front coverA roundup of author news, recent events, and things to watch out for in December.

Joyce Luck will, on the Dec. 2nd, be giving a reading from The Master Yeshua at the College of San Mateo. There’s a great piece by Joyce over on Patheos, talking about why she wanted to take this particular angle on writing about the life of Jesus.

 

 

 

jhp5457889addad3Elen Sentier was recently (20/21 November) at the College of Psychic Studies where she did a talk and workshop. She talked about stories as teachers using her novels and others as examples. If you missed the talk and would like to know more, you can read a bit about it over on Nimue Brown’s Blog, where Elen was recently a guest blogger.

jhp4ff53caaa9970Andrew Bergen put his head down to work on novel #6, launched a new comic book in the U.S. (based on his first novel ‘Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat’), collaborated with legendary Australian artist Frantz Kantor on another comic series, and released a double-vinyl Little Nobody LP. Busy month. He says ‘Day-work doesn’t count’ which leaves us with the suspicion that either he can also bend time, or he doesn’t sleep much!

 

 

 

 

 

Mary Brigid Surber had a book signing at Barnes and Noble in Reno, Nevada on October the 24th. In November she met with the event planner at Barnes and Noble and, excitingly, has been asked to participate in two more events for Barnes and Noble in December… Another book signing on the 13th and a book signing and talk on the 17th. She’s also met with the local Audubon society and will be giving some talks in December and January on birds and culture. The bird tie in is because highlighting the role the storks played in Poland’s culture is a key part of her novel – The Last Stork Summer.

 

 

 

jhp551c14107ed46It turns out that several of our novelists also write poetry… 2 of Clarke Owens poems appeared in the Inflectionist Review Anthology of Poetry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nimue Brown participated in a Miserable Poets cafe, leading to this small video.

Nimue will be at The Exeter Steampunk Yule Ball on the 12th December, where you ask her to write you a ghastly haiku, a really awful limerick with your name in it, or some other kind of fleeting silliness. And if you’ve ever wondered what you’d look like as a Steampunk Mouse, do ask her husband, illustrator Tom Brown, as he may be able to help you with this pressing issue!
