Welcome to a once-in-a-lifetime event!
On Monday, February 25th, you'll get the opportunity to mix and mingle with not one, but TWO soon-to-be-famous (or, at least, infamous) New York City fiction authors - not to mention a whole host of other colorful characters. Whether you want to rub elbows with some of the best and brightesst rising starts the city has to offer or you just like to share a beer with friends on a cold winter night, you're sure to have a great time!
Emma Larkins is launching a Kickstarter project to fund the self-publication of her science fiction novel, Mechalarum.
In a nutshell, Mechalarum is kind of like "Iron Man meets Avatar meets Mad Max, with some Boderlands 2 thrown in for good measure."
"On the day a mysterious, deadly foe threatens to dissolve the protective sandstorm and reveal the hidden Citadel, Kiellen receives terrible news. She's just been cut from the ranks of famed flying warriors, the Mechalarum. In order to redeem her honor, she steals a prototype suit and takes to the skies, determined to discover the enemies' secrets. The Council is not pleased with her foolhardy quest, and she soon finds herself trapped in a sabotaged shell of organics, rubber, and metal, crashing into the desert with no hope for survival."
BONUS GUEST Ronan Cray is the author of Red Sand.
Named one of the Top 10 New Horror Writers by Horror Novel Reviews!
"Lost meets Treasure Island in this riveting account of castaways on a desert island hunted on all sides. A rare blend of breathtaking action, deep character development, corporeal horror, and a believable story line brings this modern adventure to life.... [Shipwreck] survivors disappear one by one as the natives, and the island itself, turn hostile. An old betrayal tears apart the native political structure as a hurricane threatens to bring to life the deadly secret of the island. With time running out, the natives and survivors alike form and break alliances to escape by any means possible."
The event will be held at the cozy, centrally-located Chelsea Manor.
Please come and support our budding creativity and boundless enthusiasm! It will be a great way to shake off the Monday blues :)
