Look, I'm not going to be the first or last person to say 2020 has sucked. Same thing when I say Covid has sucked. This whole affair is a bit stink. However, dare I say it, some good things have come out of this new way of living, and one of my favorites of these is the rise of author panels. I've been eating these up as they come out, and it's been a win/win all around as far as I'm concerend. For me, I get to see readings and discussions from authors whom I'd never have a chance to see in real life otherwise. And I've also bought something from at least one of the partiipating authors afterwards. And in most cases, I've made multiple purchases. So naturally I was excited when I read Flame Tree Press was getting in on the game. 

On Friday, October 30th, 2020, Flame Tree Press has a whole shindig in store, starting at 4p EST/8p British Time. Just have a look below at all the lineup!

He's the puppet master. You don't see him, but he pulls the strings that gets things done. He's the silent partner. He's black ops. If you notice his presence, it's the last thing you'll notice — because now you're dead. He's the shadow you thought you saw in that dark alleyway. You can have a conversation with him, and when you turn around to offer him a cup of coffee, he's already gone.
