Join us for another installment of Novel Night, a monthly celebration of all things prose! Here’s how it works: two published authors will read from their books and there’ll be an audience Q & A. And we’ll also have “Book Talk,” in which an intrepid Malvern staff member will introduce you to one of our favorite prose titles. Also worth noting: we’re offering 20% OFF ALL FICTION TITLES during Novel Night (from 6pm till closing).
This month we have something rather special: a SciFi/Fantasy/Speculative fiction-themed reading with two very talented writers, Ron Seybold and S.R. Bond. Ron will be reading from his debut novel, Viral Times. S.R. will share an excerpt from The Lost Witch, book one of The Lost Universe trilogy.
Ron Seybold directs the Writer’s Workshop in Austin, a place for workshopping books and weekly creativity groups for writers which has published its anthology Small Packages. A two-time finalist in Writer’s League of Texas manuscript contests, he’s reported over the radio, acted in Austin melodramas, and walks his standard poodle Tess Harding a little less often than she’d like. A teaching volunteer at the Austin Bat Cave literacy program in schools, he coaches writers, edits books, and plays a part in helping authors from inspiration to publication.
S.R. Bond is a sci-fi/fantasy writer and dog trainer located in the hill country near Austin. She has always been an avid bookworm, the kid who read books at recess instead of playing on the jungle gym. Creating stories has been a part of her life since she could form coherent sentences. She spends her free time feeding her TV addiction and hanging out with her dog, an Australian shepherd mix named Percy (more formally known as Perseus the Destroyer).
