Donna Glee Williams to Present Her Second Novel

Donna Glee Williams will present her second novel, Dreamers, on Friday, July 14th at 6:30 p.m. at City Lights Bookstore. Driven by duty towards a dreamless death… By the time she's sixteen, the town's Dreamer has long ago given up her own life. She only dreams for others now, every morning delivering up to them the divine guidance that comes to her in the night. In exchange, they treat the Dreamer like their queen. All her bodily needs are provided, but love and relationships are forbidden to her. Now something unexpected is happening. Something entirely new. A foreign man has come to the village, wearing a scarlet vest and a gold finger-ring that is far, far too good for a mere Water-Bearer. His strange amber eyes have found the Dreamer’s and she longs to be free. But maybe freedom isn't the only cost of being the Dreamer: When her dreams begin to question the authority of the self-serving Chief Interpreter, will she survive his fury? To reserve copies of Dreamers please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.

Urban Fantasy Appreciation Reading with Lauren Devora & Randi Janelle

Join local urban fantasy authors at City Lights Bookstore for a reading and general lovefest for the fantastical--in our stories and in our lives on Saturday, July 15th at 3 p.m. They'll invite you to partake in a quiz "Are you Living an Urban Fantasy Novel?" Randi and Lauren find their lives are similar to one--you may be surprised by how much of your life is urban fantasy as well!

 

Lauren Devora has been writing ever since she knew how to use a pencil. Children of Lilith was first imagined during a particularly rough session of math homework when Lauren was 15. That night the story gained 25 pages and a cast of characters. Her math homework was never finished. Now after 10 years, she is beyond giddy to witness her book go off into the world.

 

Randi Janelle is an author, photographer, performance poet, yoga instructor, cat whisperer... She calls Asheville home, but has lived and toured in Australia and New Zealand, and understands the phrases "fair dinkum" and "keen as." She's writing a novel series; the first is The Story: Deviation (available to revel in!), and the second book, The Story: Possession is making its way into this world. She's joined the circus, well, the Literary Circus--a troupe of fellow authors to showcase and encourage literary acts of wonder. And to top it off, she's sharing channeled material for personal and global evolution, assisting in a new era called the Age of Omniscience with her business Create the Leap.

To reserve copies of their books please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
