I will be at the Free Library of Philadelphia (Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional) on Saturday! You’ll be there. Don’t disappoint me. OR WE’LL DISCUSS YOU IN YOUR ABSENCE.
Author Visit with Chuck Wendig – Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 3:00PM
Wendig has been nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer of science fiction or fantasy for his first Miriam Black novel, Blackbirds, described in The Financial Times as “… a splendidly profane slice of urban fantasy – hard, dark and fast… a black comedy that even the Grim Reaper could smile at.” Other well-received recent books are Mockingbirds and Blue Blazes.
Wendig will talk about his books, especially about the origins of his recently published young adult science fiction novel, Under the Empyrean Sky, the first book in the Heartland trilogy, which Kirkus Reviews called “A chilling post-apocalyptic adventure set on an Earth devastated by poor agricultural practices…A thoroughly imagined environmental nightmare with taut pacing and compelling characters that will leave readers eager for more.”
He will also talk about writing, as he is well-known for his witty, profane, and very practical advice to writers, which he dispenses at his blog, terribleminds.com, and through several popular e-books. A collection of this advice will be published as a paperback in November 2013: The Kick-Ass Writer: 1001 Ways to Write Great Fiction, Get Published, and Earn Your Audience.
Bring your copy of Chuck’s books and he will sign it for you after his talk!
