Meet our authors at MoCCA

If you’re in NY this weekend, come meet us and some of our authors who will be handing out and signing previews at the MoCCA Fest.

Our guests will include Neil Kleid (Brownsville) and Nicolas Cinquegrani of the forthcoming The Big Kahn who will be signing a special MoCCA preview book. We’ll also have Jesse Lonergan (Flower & Fade) down from New England signing a preview of his Joe & Azat. Hey, they’re free! Come say hi.

Besides that, we’ll have the premier of the beautiful Bringing Up Father collection! Advance copies a few weeks before they become generally available.

And we just might have the very first copies of Rick Geary’s Famous Players, his newest Treasury of XXth Century Murder. We’ll also have a smattering of recent books of ours including some from our sister co. Papercutz with Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Bionicle, etc…

Here’s the schedule of appearances:

SATURDAY

Nicolas Cinquegrani: 2 to 4PM

Jesse Lonergan: 11 to noon, 1-3, 5-6PM

SUNDAY

Neil Kleid & Nicolas Cinquegrani: 11:30-1PM, Kleid alone: 3:30 to 5

Jesse Lonergan: 1-3:30

A bit about Joe & Azat:

Joe is an American in the strange land of Turkmenistan who finds a good friend in Azat, a Turkmen dreamer whose optimism knows no bounds. With tales of doomed desert cab rides, nights of endless vodka shots, unlikely Turkmen business schemes, and secret girlfriends, Lonergan captures not only the bizarreness of living in a country where the president for life launches copies of his poetry books into space, outlaws gold teeth and renames the months and days, but also reveals that there is hope in seemingly hopeless situations. Based loosely on Lonergan’s Peace Corps experience in the former Soviet republic.

See ya there!

Drop by and say hi, meet publisher Terry Nantier, our famous sales guy Tony Shenton and our charming and beauteous assistant Sylvia Nantier, daughter of Terry and heir apparent to the throne (he wishes, she doesn’t want it).
