Galactic Philadelphia Reading

October 13, 2019

This coming Tuesday, October 15, I will be participating in the Galactic Philadelphia reading alongside Anna Kashina. We’re both Soviet-born fantasy authors with recently-launched or upcoming books, so fans of swordplay and sorcery should have a grand time at this event!

The event will begin at 7pm and each of us will read for approximately 20 minutes, followed by a Q&A and a book signing. Bring your own copies or buy some of ours! Should be a load of fun, and a nice way to get your hands on Eridani’s Crown prior to the launch at Capclave next weekend.

Details are posted here.
