This past Sunday the writers of Taipei Writers Group gathered once again for a book launch, this time for our second anthology, Night Market.
Hosted by author and poet CK Hugo Chung, our event was held at Rue 216, a lovely French Bistro in the bustling Zhongxiao Dunhua area of Taipei.
With stunning cover and chapter art by the talented Hannah Charlton, and stories by ten local and expat authors, our second publication of short stories has sold quite well in Taipei since its July release.
Taiwan Tales, our first anthology, has also continued to sell well nearly a year after its release, with sales increasing in Taiwan after the announcement of our special deal with Night Market, offering a discount for the purchase of both paperbacks sold locally.
At our Sunday afternoon event, anthology contributor J. J. Green also read the gripping opening of her recently published novella, Death Switch, and Brian Q. Webb read a rather humorous excerpt from his own science fiction novel set to launch later this year.
Special guests included Bradley Verdell, who spoke of his thrilling steam-punk series, TWG friend Mark Chapman, whose Blue Prometheus we were excited to learn more about, and Patrick Whalen, a Taiwan Tales contributor and the commander-in-chief of our long-standing crew, who recently published his second novel, Deadman Bay.
It was an excellent event and a full house! Stay tuned for news on more TWG events, and announcements about our dystopian-themed anthology coming Christmas 2015!
