I've been asked to read some of my work for NZ Book Month! It's very exciting.
The following invitation was sent out by the organiser of the event yesterday:
For anyone in Auckland on March 7th, you are
invited to a NZ Book Month event, put on by the Auckland branch of
SpecFic NZ. It features a panel of published specfic writers, where each
will give a short reading from their work followed by a Q&A
The panel so far is:
Grant Stone - SF short story writer extraordinaire and twice winner of the Sir Julius Vogel short story category
Grace Bridges - President of SpecFic NZ, SF novelist, and independent publisher of Splashdown Books and Waitemata Books ( NZ fiction)
Darian Smith - award winning short story writer of both fantasy and literary fiction
Elaine Smith - multi-media artist and author, she writes contemporary
and SF short stories, as well as art works featuring a variety of media.
Lila Richards - dark fantasy novelist and medieval specialist (http://tinyurl.com/arzs8sk)
Come along for a great evening if you are interested in speculative
fiction (Sf, fantasy, horror, and anything vaguely related), want to
meet others with a like interest and listen to Auckland SpecFic authors.
Place: Mangere Bridge Library, 5 Church Rd,
Mangere Bridge. There is car parking right beside it, and a park for the
kids to run around in just outside if you can't get baby sitters.
Time : 6.30 - 8pm
Date: Thursday, 7th March.
To get there, take the first off ramp just past Mangere bridge when
heading to the airport on the Southwestern motorway. If coming from the
airport direction, take the Coronation Rd off ramp. The library is just
behind the shops on the western side.
