FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(August 10, 2007 – Naples, FL) Naples-based author M. B. Weston will be attending and exhibiting at Dragon*Con, America’s largest, multi-media, popular arts convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. More than 20,000 people are expected to attend the event held over the Labor Day weekend, August 31-September 3, 2007, in Atlanta.
Dragon*Con was launched in 1987 as an outgrowth/evolvement of a local Science Fiction and gaming group, the Dragon Alliance of Gamers and Role-Players (DAGR), founded by Ed Kramer. The name "Dragon" for both the club and the convention was derived from Ed’s Dragon Computer (a European version of Radio Shack’s venerable Color Computer), which hosted a local Bulletin Board System ("The Dragon") that initially served as a central hub for both organizations. For more details, go online to www.dragoncon.org.
M. B. Weston will have a table displaying her current book, A Prophecy Forgotten, in the Exhibit Hall. Attendees will browse amongst the latest new products and releases from a wide variety of gaming, comic and book publishing companies. “This is an exciting time for me to meet with fans who have read my book, as well as talk to people who might not have heard about me yet!” says Weston.
A Prophecy Forgotten is the first in the Elysian Chronicles trilogy. It’s a Tolkien-meets-Clancy fantasy novel about guardian angel warfare and treason that embodies the themes of faith, hope and living according to your purpose through the fantasy fiction story of Davian, a battle-hardened major in the special operations division of the cherubian military. While Davian is on assignment deep in enemy territory, he is called and sent to Earth to guard seven-year-old Tommy – a boy who has been prophesied to save Earth. Tommy is just trying to survive the second grade, persecution from bullies and the strain of his parent’s divorce. He has no idea he could be the chosen one, or of the spiritual forces at work surrounding him.
Her next book, Out of the Shadows: Book II of the Elysian Chronicles, will be available in December 2007. A Prophecy Forgotten(ISBN-10: I-59507-I69-5; ISBN-13: 978-159507-169-9) is available now.
Weston is also available for book signings or speaking engagements. M. B. Weston can be reached at 239-821-3769, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or online by visiting www.elysianchronicles.com.
