Steampunk fiction is exciting to me & inspiration when it comes to creating new pieces. Join me next Tuesday night, July 17th, at Youth Services in Tulsa (located 311 South Madison Avenue) from 7:00 to 9:00pm! Let's support Tulsa's very own Steampunk author, Emily Hedgecock! The information below is from the invitation I received: Emily will be on hand to give readings and personally sign copies of the book at Youth Services. Be among the first to get a copy of one of the hippest debut novels of the year!
About the author: E. A. Hedgecock is actually Emily "Danger" Hedgecock who was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dangerous Fugitives is her first published novel. Emily is a past recipient of multiple Tulsa City-County Young Author awards. Last October she traveled to Washington, D.C. to see her award-winning play, Handspeak, performed at the Kennedy Center for the Arts. More about the book: The artists in Dangerous Fugitives are all on the run from a government that wants to squelch unsanctioned creativity. In a steam-powered universe where the combustion engine never caught on, the militaristic leaders of one continent, Erivale, have banned self-expression in all its forms and sent out monstrous machines to control the populace. When their artistic pursuits are discovered, Victoria the Writer, Nicola the Dancer, and Felix the Actor must escape into the vast desert of the Nothingness. After two years they are picked up by a rogue airship manned by the famous Frierson brothers, handsome Bernard, sour Alexander, and one-eyed Princeton. The young rebels resolve to take down the machines and reinstate creative expression.
