Girls Gone SciFi in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Friday, March 20 at 7:30pm
Jessica Brody Jessica Khoury Debra Driza Melissa Landers Claudia Gray

SciFi YA extravaganza in San Diego! Blast off for adventure with young adult authors Jesssica Brody (Unchanged), Claudia Gray (A Thousand Pieces of You), Jessica Khoury (Kalahari), Melissa Landers (Invaded), and Debra Driza (MILA 2.0: Renegade). Unchanged completes the thrilling SF trilogy started in Jessica’s Unremembered; fans are encouraged to check out the ebook short, “Unleashed,” as wel, for more insights into the mysterious Diotech Compound. Bestseller Claudia’s A Thousand Pieces of You is blurbed as “Orphan Black meets Cloud Atlas in the first book of this epic dimension–bending trilogy about a girl who must chase her father’s killer through multiple dimensions.” The Corpus Files that Jessica began with Origin in the depths of the Amazon rainforest and continued with Vitro in the South Pacific islands now takes readers to the wilds of Botswana with Kalahari. Linda’s review of Melissa’s Alienated reads, “Appealing to science fiction and YA readers, a plot with a forbidden love theme involving intergalactic exchange students allows Landers to discuss important issues such as teen romance, peer pressure, trust and acceptance of those a little bit different from ourselves.” The story continues in Invaded. The 2015 version of San Diego author Debra will captain the ride!

Tempe | Teen Event | Girls Gone Sci-Fi Tour | 5 Teen Authors, 1 Night!
Changing Hands Bookstore, Monday, March 16 at 7pm
7PM MONDAY, MARCH 16 "Girls Gone Sci-Fi" Tour: Jessica Brody, Claudia Gray, Jessica Khoury, Melissa Landers, and Suzanne Young LOCATION: TEMPE Five authors visit as part of "Girls Gone Sci-fi," celebrating female writers who promote character-driven and emotional speculative science fiction that teens (and adults) love. Jessica Brody visits with the third book in her Unremembered trilogy, Unchanged. As more secrets are revealed, more enemies are uncovered, and the reality of a Diotech-controlled world grows closer every day, Sera will have to choose where her true loyalties lie. But it's a choice that may cost her everything she's ever loved. Claudia Gray, the New York Times bestselling author of the Evernight series, visits with the third and final book in her bestselling Spellcaster series, Sorceress. To save the lives of countless people in Captive's Sound, Nadia swore herself to the One Beneath—to black magic. Her plan, and the town's only hope, is for Nadia to learn enough sorcery to strike back against the forces of evil. But now that she's separated from her friends, her family, and her Steadfast, Mateo, Nadia is more vulnerable than ever to the growing darkness. Jessica Khoury (author of Vitro and Origin) celebrates the release of her survival-thriller Kalahari. When an educational safari goes wrong, five teens find themselves stranded in the Kalahari Desert without a guide. It's up to Sarah, the daughter of zoologists, to keep them alive and lead them to safety, calling on survival know-how from years of growing up in remote and exotic locales. Battling dehydration, starvation and the pangs of first love, she does her best to hold it together, even as their circumstances grow increasingly desperate. Melissa Landers (who writes adult romance under the name Macy Beckett) visits with Invaded, the sequel to her alien-contact novel Alienated. Cara always knew life on planet L'eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L'eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, she is left to fend for herself, surrounded by hostile alien clones. And with L'eihr leaders balking at granting even basic freedoms, she begins to wonder if she can ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx with her. Suzanne Young presents The Treatment, the sequel to The Program. Working with rebels to bring down The Program, a suicide prevention treatment in which painful memories are erased, Sloane and James consider taking The Treatment to unlock their memories. ABOUT THE AUTHORS Jessica Brody graduated from Smith College in Massachusetts with degrees in economics and French. In 2005, she left her job at MGM Studios in Los Angeles to become a full-time freelance writer and producer. Jessica Khoury (www.jessicakhoury.com) holds a B.A. in English from Toccoa Falls College. When not writing, she spends her time on the soccer pitch or traveling the world. She lives in Greenville, SC, with her husband and two dogs. Jessica is also the author of Origin. Melissa Landers is a former teacher who left the classroom to pursue other worlds. A proud sci-fi geek, she isn't afraid to wear her Princess Leia costume in public--just ask her husband and three kids. She writes adult contemporary romance as Macy Beckett. Melissa lives in Ohio. Suzanne Young is the New York Times bestselling author of The Program series. Originally from Utica, New York, Suzanne moved to Arizona to pursue her dream of not freezing to death. She is a novelist and an English teacher, but not always in that order. Suzanne is the author of Th Program, The Treatment, The Remedy, and A Need So Beautiful.
