Hagridden Midwest Book Tour

Samuel Snoek-BrownWe are very excited to welcome Samuel Snoek-Brown, author of Hagridden, to Columbus for the next week.  We’ll be producing a lot of fantastic events over the next few days, and partnering with organizations and venues around the Midwest.

Samuel Snoek-Brown, who resides in Portland, talked to hundreds of excited readers at events through Texas and the southwest last month.  We’re proud to extend the tour to our Ohio readers, and to follow it up with more events in the Pacific Northwest later in the fall.

You can find the complete Hagridden book tour here.

Here are a few events that we’d like to highlight:

September 19 – Columbus Creative Cooperative hosts Sam for a Q&A session (Columbus, Ohio)
September 20 – Rougarou: Journey to the End of the Night (Columbus, Ohio)
September 25 – Folk & Fiction (Cincinnati, Ohio)

This is just a sampling of what we’ll be doing, in addition to writers’ workshops at universities and libraries in Ohio and Indiana, among other events.  Find the complete schedule here.

Unless otherwise noted, all events are free and open to the public.

“What we do we do to survive and they ain’t no sin in that. But lust? Whoo girl, you got to look out for that they lust. Worst sin they is. Sinners what lusted after the flesh in this world, they turn to animals in the next. Crawl around on all fours rutting like dogs and the brimstone burning off they knees, the skin of they palms. Some say the rougarous is lusters coughed up from Hell to walk the earth.” – Hagridden

As the Civil War winds violently down, fears of the South’s uncertain future fuse with its unraveling traditions. Against the backdrop of this post-apocalyptic landscape, so littered with corpses and mythology and desperation, two women, stranded and alone in the Louisiana bayou, fight to survive.

This is a fantastic book, and it’s already receiving tremendous praise from critics, and excellent reviews on Goodreads.com.

Graham’s Charlotte Release Day

Graham’s Charlotte is officially released!

Graham’s Charlotte is the first novel by award-winning novelist Drew Farnsworth.  The paperback book is now available from all major retailers, and the e-book is available on Amazon.com.

When a mysterious stranger gives Mads Riley a cell phone that knows everything, her life changes forever. Mads has the power to unlock the secrets of the universe – past, present, and future. The phone predicts earthquakes, tells her what’s on the other side of a locked door, and even reveals the trick to get out of last night’s math homework.

Mads is soon asked to use the device to break into the most heavily defended spy agency in the world. She’s told it’s the only way to save her mother’s life.

Will her mission save someone she loves, or is she betraying the country that her father died for?

Drew Farnsworth is the grand champion of The Great Novel Contest 2013.
