The 2nd Annual Fantastical Mystery Tour at Barnes & Noble, Columbia, SC
Couldn’t make it? The Ladies gotcha covered.
On July 7, 2012, seven fantasy authors came together under one roof to talk about writing…and we got a recording of it!
RACHEL AARON is the author of The Legend of Eli Monpress series, an adventure fantasy about a dangerously charming gentleman thief who also happens to be a wizard, his swordsman, their monster, and the poor bastards who have to try and stop them from stealing whatever they like. The fourth book in the series, The Spirit War, has just been released. You can learn more about Rachel and read free chapters at www.rachelaaron.net
DELILAH S. DAWSON is the author of Wicked as They Come (Pocket/S&S), the first in a steampunk-tinged paranormal romance series set in the magical, Victorianesque world of Sang. Her second book, Wicked as She Wants, will be out next spring. She’s also an Associate Editor at Cool Mom Picks, a contributor at the Steampunk Chronicle, and a member of RWA, the Georgia Romance Writers, and the Artifice Club. You can stalk her properly at www.delilahsdawson.com, but you have to get past her army of adorably murderous bludbunnies first.
A. J. HARTLEY is the New York Times bestselling author of mystery, thriller and fantasy novels and the Robinson Professor of Shakespeare at UNC Charlotte, among many other things. His latest books are Macbeth, a Novel (co-written with David Hewson) and the first of his YA series, Darwen Arkwright and the Peregrine Pact (which recently won the SIBA award for Young Adult novel of the year). You can find out more about him at www.ajhartley.net.
JOHN HARTNESS is the author of The Black Knight Chronicles, an urban fantasy series that follows the adventures of a pair of nerdy private investigators, who also happen to be vampires. John graduated from Winthrop University with a BA in Theatre Performance and currently lives in Charlotte, NC, where he is active in the theatre community. You can learn more about John, his writing and other works by visiting www.johnhartness.com.
MISTY MASSEY is the author of Mad Kestrel (Tor Books), a rollicking fantasy adventure of magic on the high seas. Misty is one of the featured writers on Magical Words (www.magicalwords.net). When she’s not writing, she studies Middle Eastern dance and has danced as a member of the Carolina Renaissance Faire’s troupe, the Jewels of the Caravan.

KALAYNA PRICE is the USA Today Bestselling author of the Alex Craft Novels, a new dark urban fantasy series from Roc, and the Novels of Haven from Bell Bridge Books. Her works have received great critical review as well as several awards and are available around the world in multiple languages. Kalayna is an avid student of classic folklore, which is reflected in her work. As well as the mystical elements of fantasy, her stories contain a dash of romance, a bit of gritty horror, some humor, and a large serving of mystery. Kalayna is a member of SFWA and RWA, and a hula-hoop dancer who has been known to light her hoop on fire. To find out more, please visit her at www.kalayna.com
JAMES R. TUCK is the author of the Deacon Chalk series from Kensington. He is a former bouncer and a professional tattoo artist in the Atlanta area. He lives just north of there with his lovely wife, two lovely children, and four dogs of varying degrees of loveliness. He writes dark urban fantasy that makes the nerve under your eye twitch. www.jamesrtuck.com

If you’ve been paying attention to Steampunk news lately, the whole snafu over a Goodreads/Listopia list getting deleted (and the inelegant blundering that followed) most likely hasn’t escaped your notice.
If you haven’t, boy are you in for an eyebrow-raiser.
In this special Pendragon Xtra, Steampunk authors Tee Morris and Philippa (Pip) Ballentine share what, for them, pushed it over the line from playground pigtail-pulling to a bold career choice, and you can believe…they’re steaming out the ears.
2-25-2012 – Edit - From an anonymous source: “Evelyn isn’t an illustrator, and does not draw. She didn’t draw the steampunk cats… she “collaged” (i.e. Photoshopped…) turn-of-the-century illustrations by Louis Wain.”
