Skylar Dorset
Blue Willow Bookshop, Saturday, September 6 at 2pm
What: Skylar Dorset will discuss and sign The Girl Who Never Was, her debut novel for young adults. When: Saturday, September 6, 2:00 pm Where: Blue Willow Bookshop, 14532 Memorial Drive, Houston, Texas, 77079 Admission: In order to go through the signing line and meet Skylar Dorset, please purchase The Girl Who Never Was from Blue Willow Bookshop. At the time of your purchase, we will issue a signing line ticket that indicates your place in line. Your book and signing line ticket can be picked up at the event. About the Author: Skylar’s first story was a tale of romantic intrigue involving two feuding factions of squirrels. Think “Romeo & Juliet” but with bushy tails and added espionage. She was seven. Since that time, Skylar’s head has been filled with lots of characters and lots of drama. She is delighted to be able to share some of it with all of you now, because, honestly, it was getting pretty loud and crowded in there. Skylar is a born-and-bred New Englander, which is why Boston was a natural setting for her debut novel, The Girl Who Never Was. Skylar shares her home with a cardboard cutout of the Tenth Doctor, lots of Mardi Gras beads from the time she spent living in New Orleans, and a harp she’s supposed to be teaching herself to play. She’d like to get a dog. Book: In Selkie's family, you don't celebrate birthdays. You don't talk about birthdays. And you never, ever reveal your birth date. Until now. The instant Selkie blurts out the truth to Ben in the middle of Boston Common, her whole world shatters. Because her life has been nothing but a lie--an elaborate enchantment meant to conceal the truth: Selkie is a half-faerie princess. And her mother wants her dead. Ordering: A limited number of autographed copies of Skylar’s book will be available for purchase after the event. If you cannot attend the event, and would like a personalized copy of her book, please call us before the event at (281) 497-8675. If you can't attend the event or need a copy shipped to you, you may call the store or add the appropriate book to your cart on our website. Payment type must be "CreditCard."

Peter May & Mark Pryor
Murder By The Book, Saturday, September 6 at 4:30pm
Peter May will sign The Lewis Man (Querces; $26.99), the second book in his trilogy.

Peter May is the Sunday Times bestselling author of the Lewis trilogy crime novels, a standalone thriller Entry Island and Hebrides, a photographic journey through the Hebridean Islands. Peter has over 1,000 television credits to his name, including the Scottish Gaelic series Machair, which was filmed entirely on location on the Isle of Lewis.

The landscape of the Outer Hebrides, with its stark cliffs, ghostly mists and lonely beaches, has become a definitive character of Peter May’s Lewis trilogy. In Hebrides, readers accompany him on an odyssey in prose and images, through a history of the Vikings’ ‘Long Island’ and his own deep personal connection with the islands that influenced his bestselling work.

Travelling as if alongside his Lewis Trilogy protagonist Fin Macleod, he describes the island life – as bewitching as it is treacherous – his encounter with the bird-hunters of Sula Sgeir, the savage seas of Ness and the churches of Eriskay. With extracts from the trilogy and specially commissioned photographs, this book places his writing and characters within the land that gave them form and has inspired the Visit Outer Hebrides Peter May Lewis Trilogy tour.

Mark Pryor will sign and discuss The Button Man (Seventh Street Books; $15.95).

Mark grew up in Hertfordshire, England, and now lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife and three young children.

Over the years, he has been many things: ski instructor, journalist, personal trainer, and bra folder (he lasted one day: fired for giggling at the ridiculousness of the job. If it's any excuse, he was just nineteen years old.)

His first real career was as a newspaper reporter in Colchester, Essex. There, he covered the police and crime beat for almost two years. He also wrote stories on foreign assignments, including accounts from Northern Ireland while with the British Army, and from Romania where he covered the first-anniversary celebrations of that country's revolution.

Mark moved to America in 1994, mostly for the weather. He attended journalism school at the University of North Carolina, in Chapel Hill, and then law school at Duke University, graduating with honors and a lot of debt.

He is currently an Assistant District Attorney with the Travis County DA's office. Or, as he tells his kids, "I help catch bad guys." Simplistic, yes, but you try explaining the judicial system

Stephanie Perkins has always worked with books—first as a bookseller, then as a librarian, and now as a novelist. She lives in the mountains of North Carolina with her husband. Every room of their house is painted a different color of the rainbow. Her newest book is Isla and the happily ever after. Books: Illusions of Fate Jessamin has been an outcast since she moved from her island home of Melei to the dreary country of Albion. Everything changes when she meets the gorgeous, enigmatic Finn, who introduces her to the secret world of Albion's nobility, a world that has everything Jessamin doesn't--power, money, status . . . and magic. But Finn has secrets of his own, and the vicious Lord Downpike will do anything to possess them. Unless Jessamin, armed only with her wits, can stop him. Isla and the happily ever after Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.
