NM AUTHORS CELEBRATE SCI-FI & FANTASY SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, AT PAGE ONE BOOKS
Science Fiction author Sage Walker and fantasy author Jeffe Kennedy join forces 4:00 pm Saturday, September 16, to celebrate their releases of new speculative fiction novels at Page One Books. Walker is promoting the first book in a new hard-science, space-set series, "The Man in the Tree," while Kennedy's latest fantasy novel is "The Shift of the Tide: Uncharted Realms Book 3."
Walker's novel is described as such: "Humanity’s last hope of survival lies in space…but will a random death doom the venture? Our planet is dying and the world’s remaining nations have pooled their resources to build a seed ship that will carry colonists on a multi-generational journey to a distant planet. Everything is set for a bright adventure…and then someone is found hanging dead just weeks before the launch. Fear and paranoia spread as the death begins to look more and more like a murder. The authorities want the case settled quickly and quietly so as not to cause panic…and to prevent a murderer from sabotaging the entire mission."
Kennedy's "The Shift of the Tide" is teased as such: "Released from the grip of a tyrant, the Twelve Kingdoms have thrown all that touch them into chaos. As the borders open, new enemies emerge to vie for their hard-won power--and old deceptions crumble under the strain... The most talented shapeshifter of her generation, Zynda has one love in her life:freedom. The open air above her, the water before her, the sun on her skin or wings or fur--their sensual glories more than make up for her loneliness. She serves the High Queen's company well, but she can't trust her allies with her secrets, or the secrets of her people. Best that she should keep her distance,alone. Except wherever she escapes, Marskal, the Queen's quiet lieutenant, seems to find her. Solid, stubborn, and disciplined, he's no more fluid than rock. Yet he knows what she likes, what thrills and unnerves her, when she's hiding something. His lithe warrior's body promises pleasure she has gone too long without. But no matter how careful, how tender, how incendiary he is, only Zynda can know the sacrifice she must make for her people's future--and the time is drawing near..."
Walker is the author of "Whiteout," which garnered critical acclaim and won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. She was born in Oklahoma and grew up steeped in simile and sultry south wind from the Gulf. She entered college as a music major and exited with a B.S. in Zoology and eventually a M.D. A long-time Taos resident, her company established the first full-time Emergency Physician coverage in hospitals in Taos, Los Alamos, and Santa Fe. She stopped practicing in 1987 and describes herself as a burned-out ER doc who enjoys wilderness, solitude, good company...and telling stories.
Kennedy is an award-winning author with a writing career that spans decades. Her most recent works include the fantasy trilogy "The Twelve Kingdoms." Book one, "The Mark of the Tala," received a starred Library Journal review and was nominated for the RT Book of the Year while the third book, "The Talon of the Hawk," won the RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Fantasy Romance of 2015. Recently, "The Pages of the Mind," the first of the Imperial Realms books, won a RITA Award for Best Paranormal Romance Book. She lives in Santa Fe, with two Maine Coon cats, a border collie, plentiful free-range lizards and a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. Jeffe can be found online every Sunday at the popular Word Whores blog.
