Launch at Polaris! With Mimosas!

The Dragon Moon Press team is proud (and giddy!) to bring you a Canadian launch of When the Hero Comes Home, at Polaris on July 17!  Confirmed authors so far include Erik Buchanan (author of Small Magics and Cold Magics) and J.M. Frey (Author of Triptych), and myself!  Here are the details:

WHEN: Sunday, July 17, 2011, 11 am to 1 pm
WHERE: Ten-Forward at Polaris
WHY:  Really?  Do you really have to ask?  Here's the book cover and blurb, just to bring things home (like heroes!)

HEROES come in a thousand guises, and so do stories about them. The only survivor of a war struggles to return to a home that doesn’t exist anymore. A rebel leader loses everything she fought for and must start from scratch. A hero who has fought for her village her whole life must retire into obscurity without ever being known for her deeds. A starship returns to an Earth that is much changed, yet too much the same. A soldier is haunted by the very thing that saved his life. And King Arthur returns in Albion’s hour of need. Dark fantasy. Urban fantasy. Political intrigue. Science fiction. From the horrific to the heartwarming. Introducing 19 pulse-pounding tales, by luminaries and great new voices. Co-edited by Gabrielle Harbowy and Ed Greenwood. Featuring an introduction by Susan J. Morris.
There you go.  Now you know the why.  That, and we'll have champagne mimosas!  Dragon Moon Press knows how to throw a party!  

... wait?  What's that I hear???  You can't MAKE Polaris OR the book launch?? *gasp!*  No worries.  The book is available on Amazon.com.  But be forewarned - this version doesn't come with Mimosas (and now you know the real disadvantage of online shopping).
