Book Signing - Leslie Soule

BOOK SIGNING - Leslie Soule - Saturday, December 21

Crawford's Books welcomes local author, Leslie Soule for a book signing event for her Fallenwood Chronicles and Hybrid Space books. 

Saturday, December 21
2:00 - 4:00pm

Leslie D. Soule received her M.A. in English from National University. She is a scholar, artist, citizen journalist, and martial artist. She has been an established writer for a decade. What sets her work apart from the pack, is its intensity in dealing with the ultimately personal journey of life and its myriad setbacks and sorrows. Her novels contain a deeply populist, anti-establishment tone, one in which rebellion against the often-authoritarian norm is praised. Her work embraces the outcasts of society – the discarded, the rebels, the people that the magazines forgot to tell you, exist. For Captain Ahab, the horrors and evils of the world are all contained in the persona of the white whale, Moby Dick. For Leslie D. Soule and her main character Ash Kensington, they are contained within the person of the dark lord Malegaunt. The theme running through her novels is the triumph over seemingly impossible odds, the value in keeping the idea of “Ex Tenebris Lux” (light out of darkness) close to your heart. Readers enjoy Soule’s no-nonsense, fast-paced style of writing. She loves to hear from her readers, and encourages them to connect with her on Twitter, and to help spread the word, about her work.

In Fallenwood, Ash Kensington is a young woman battling both crippling depression and the all-too-harsh ways of the world, and yet, she holds a desperate hope, an Ex Tenebris Lux, close to hear heart. And so should you.
Enter the world of Fallenwood!  The Fallenwood Chronicles includes: Fallenwood, Forgetting Fallenwood, Betrayer and Retribution.
