‘The Dragon’s Apprentice’ launch events

Books Events Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Dragon's ApprenticeThe next week sees not one, not two, but three book launch events in the Phoenix area with author James A. Owen for the release of The Dragon’s Apprentice, the fifth book in The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica series.

Seven years after the events of The Shadow Dragons, John, Jack and Charles are finally able to return to their beloved Archipelago of Dreams. But even as their return is celebrated by old friends, new concerns shadow the reunion: the threat of Ecthroi, primordial Shadow. And perhaps even worse, the apparent splintering of Time itself.

Now, the Caretakers must fight against their most fearsome enemy ever and attempt to restore Time. They must journey through a forgotten Door from the destroyed Keep of Time in order to seek out the Dragon’s Apprentice. If they fail, it will mean the end of both of the worlds. But success will carry its own price–a price that may be too high even for the Caretakers to bear.

The series has been a big success with readers young and old.  It is currently in development for a  movie, which James will likely be updating fans about at the talks.

Tuesday night October 19th will see James celebrate the release of the new book with a talk and signing at the Barnes & Noble in Desert Ridge Marketplace at 7:00 pm.

Saturday, October 23, James will appear at Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe at 1 pm.

On Sunday, October 24th, James will join with authors Larry Correia, Sam Sykes, SS Wilson, and Weston Ochse for a Halloween Bash at The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale at 2 pm.   Sam Sykes will be signing Tome of the Undergates, the first novel in his Aeon’s Gate series.  Larry Correia will be signing Monster Hunter Vendetta, the latest book in his Monster Hunter series.  Weston Ochse will be signing Empire of Salt, his new horror novel.  S.S. Wilson, screenwriter for the movies Short Circuit, batteries not included, and Tremors, will be signing his first novel, Tucker’s Monster.  In addition to the authors, there will be a costume contest and other fun activities for all ages.

James will also be touring in California and elsewhere starting in November.  Check out his blog, the Imaginarium Geographica website, and his Facebook page for updates.
