Hillsborough author John Claude Bemis wrote to let me know that:
I’m thrilled to share that my new book The Prince Who Fell from the Sky comes out May 22! I am thankful that it is already being well-received. Amazon picked it as a Best Book of the Month for May (you can pre-order it 40% off, or get it at your local indy bookstore or Barnes and Noble).I hope you’ll be able to join me for my book launch party. Lots of fun for the whole family with music, a book performance by my young acting troupe, refreshments, and reading from the book. Copies of my four novels will be available for purchase from local Purple Crow Books, and I’ll be ready to personalize your copy.

If you have missed the “medicine show” style launch parties for John’s books in the past, you… well, you obviously don’t know what you’re missing, so I’ll have to explain. They’re a blast for all ages, and if I have learned anything about John in the past few years, it’s that he will have some original guitar music which is thematically suited to the book, which in this case is a folkloric/post-apocalyptic tale of talking animals and the most interesting animal they’ve yet met: a human boy. (No pressure, John. Just saying that “The Ballad of The Prince Who Fell From the Sky” could make a welcome appearance!)
I updated the newsletter and, of course, here’s an updated handout/flyer with the event inserted. Oh, and the fantastic cover art:
