WHEN MAGIC & MYTH MEET MAIN STREET (Room 25ABC)
When stories mix modern cities like Paris, L.A., and New York with magic, myth, and demon spawn, they are collectively known as Urban Fantasy, and many of today's popular authors are adding their otherworldly ingredients to the melting pots of modern (and not-so-modern) society. Jim Butcher (Skin Game), Seanan McGuire (Sparrow Hill Road), Richard Kadrey (The Getaway God), Thomas Sniegoski (The Remy Chandler Series), Amber Benson (Calliope Reaper-Jones series), and Greg van Eekhout (California Bones) discuss why something old with something new equals gold.
Moderated by Anton Strout (Incarnate).
Followed by our group autographing.
SIGNING: AA09, 4:30-5:30 PM

The third and final book of The Spellmason Chronicles, INCARNATE!
When Alexandra Belarus discovered her family’s secret ability to breathe life into stone, she uncovered an entire world of magic hidden within New York City—a world she has accidentally thrown into chaos. A spell gone awry has set thousands of gargoyles loose upon Manhattan, and it’s up to Lexi and her faithful protector, Stanis, to put things right.
But the stress of saving the city is casting a pall over Lexi and Stanis’s relationship, driving them to work separately to solve the problem. As Stanis struggles to unite the gargoyle population, Lexi forges unlikely alliances with witches, alchemists and New York’s Finest to quell an unsettling uprising led by an ancient and deadly foe long thought vanquished.
To save her city, Lexi must wield more power than ever before with the added hope of recovering a mysterious artifact that could change her world—and bring her closer to Stanis than she ever thought possible…
With over fifteen years in publishing, the last five of them being published, I love to go to conventions and writer's weekends to help others on their path to publication. I've lectured at San Diego Comic Con, Gen Con, Brooklyn Festival of Books, Romance Writer's of America chapters, and many others, so if you are interested in having me as a guest

Haven't read Dead To Me,
book one,of the Simon Canderous urban fantasy series yet?
Well, look no further, my little Undead Approved. You can check out an excerpt here
What people are saying about the Simon Canderous series:
Canderous is a reformed thief and a psychometrist. By turns despondent
over his luck with the ladies (not always living) and his struggle with
the hierarchy of his mysterious department (not always truthful),
Simon's life veers from crisis to crisis. Following Simon's adventures
is like being the pinball in an especially antic game, but it's well
worth the wear and tear."
-Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse series, aka HBO's True Blood
Canderous is the kind of guy who can do magical things with his
hands…literally. With only his wry sarcasm, self-deprecating humor and
preternatural 'talent' for Psychometry to keep him out of trouble, Simon
navigates the supernatural underbelly of New York City with a style and
panache worthy of a thousand sequels."
-Amber Benson, author of the Calliope Reaper-Jones series and co-author of the Ghosts of Albion
fantasy with a wink and a nod. Anton Strout has written a good- hearted
send-up of the urban fantasy genre. Dead To Me is a genuinely fun book
with a fresh and firmly tongue-in-cheek take on the idea of paranormal
police. The laughs are frequent as are the wry smiles. I'm looking
forward to seeing what he does next."
-Kelly McCullough, author of Cybermancy, Webmage and Codespell
"Real magic in a real, gritty world and a hero whose moral compass wavers--delightful!"
-Tamora Pierce, NY Times bestselling writer
Ghostbusters, part Men-in-Black, Strout’s debut is both dark and funny,
with quirky characters, an eminently likable protagonist, and the
comfortable, familiar voice of a close friend. His mix of (mostly)
secret bureaucratic bickering and offbeat action shows New York like
we’ve never seen it before. Make room on the shelf, ‘cause you’re going
to want to keep this one!"
-Rachel Vincent, author of Stray and Rogue
