Book Launch Event for “The Witches of Ash and Ruin”

| February 2, 2020 | 0 Comments

Author E. Latimer, whose Young Adult novel, “The Witches of Ash and Ruin,” is holding a San Diego book-launching event at 7 p.m., Friday, March 6 at Mysterious Galaxy bookshop, located at 5943 Balboa Ave Suite 100, San Diego CA 92111. The event is free and open to the public. Her book is being launched through Disney/Hyperion/Freeform.

“Witches of Ash and Ruin” is about seventeen-year-old Dayna Walsh who is struggling to cope with her somatic OCD; the aftermath of being outed as bisexual in her conservative Irish town; and the return of her long-absent mother, who barely seems like a parent. But all that really matters to her is ascending and finally, finally becoming a full witch–plans that are complicated when another coven arrives in town with premonitions of death.

Walsh immediately finds herself at odds with the bewitchingly frustrating Meiner King, the granddaughter of their coven leader. But when a witch is murdered at a local sacred site by a serial killer known as the Butcher, Walsh and Meiner must join forces to stop him or one of them will be next.  

Latimer lives on Vancouver Island and is also author of “The Strange and Deadly Portraits of Bryony Gray,” (Tundra Books) and makes vlogs with the Word Nerds. She has gained notoriety for her literary success on the Wattpad platform, where she has earned more than 60,000 followers and more than 10 million views for her work.

Some topics of interest that Latimer may address during the book launch, include:

  • How fantasy settings are incorporated into contemporary coming-of-age conflicts.
  • The importance of #OwnVoices stories and what inspired Latimer to write hers.
  • Creating a writing career on Wattpad that led to a book contract with Disney.

Author E. Latimer will share information about her latest book, which led to a book contract with Disney.
