I will have a psychic there–Michael Smith–who will be doing psychic readings for guests! So there will be psychic readings (which fits with the whole paranormal theme of HUNTED, and the main character having telepathy and empathy), prizes (everyone gets a raffle ticket when they enter!), and food (including cake!). I’ll also be talking briefly about why I wrote HUNTED, and will probably read a page or two (tops).
I hope you can make it!

Book: HUNTED (YA Paranormal fantasy/dystopian, Canadian paperback edition published by Fitzhenry & Whiteside)
In HUNTED, Caitlyn is a telepath in a world where having any Paranormal power at all is illegal. So she’s on the run a lot from ParaTroopers, who can torture her, enslave her, even kill her if they capture her. When Caitlyn settles down in a city with her mom, she falls for Alex, a Normal (someone without any Paranormal powers at all) which is dangerous because if he discovers her powers he can turn her in. And she also stumbles across a group of Paranormals who want to kill all the Normals for oppressing them–and that would include Alex. This forces Caitlyn to have to decide: Is she going to stay in hiding to protect herself, or take a stand to save the people around her?
I had someone ask me the other night what a book launch is. A book launch is a celebration of the book, a way to let people know about it. And it’s also a lovely thing to buy the book at the launch, to support the writer and to feed your reading habit.
