I’m going to be at Festival of the Book in just a few weeks time. I’ll be moderating a wonderful panel called ‘HEROINES OF DESTINY’. The title alone inspires me in about a hundred different ways.
How do we regard destiny as romance readers?
How do we in America feel about forging your own destiny? How do other cultures look at destiny?
What do we enjoy as romance readers about a woman fighting her destiny?
And–especially for paranormal readers–what are the joys of accepting one’s special destiny when one is –fill in the blank here–
- becoming a shape shifter
- fated true love of an alpha hero
- turned into a vampire
Ooooh, it’s gonna be so good! Can’t wait to talk to the other authors about these fun topics. I’ll be joined by Pintip Dunn–NYT bestselling YA author, Margaret Locke–who writes time travel historicals (sorta), and Natalina Reis, who writes what I would call alternative culture fantasy. (I.e. not just Ye Olde English fantasy).
You’re going to come and see us, right? ; > You won’t regret it if you do. As usual, all SFF and Romance panels are free to the public.
