April #TorChat Lineup Revealed

Image Place holder  of - 21 Placeholder of  -73 Place holder  of - 29

This month, #TorChat is celebrating the start of warmer weather by talking about a hot genre: urban fantasy! Joining us on April 18th from 4 to 5 PM EST are Suzanne Johnson, Deborah Coates, and A. M. Dellamonica, to talk about urban fantasy, magic, and some kick-butt heroines!

Tor Books (@torbooks) is thrilled to announce the April #TorChat, part of a monthly series of genre-themed, hour-long chats created by Tor Books and hosted on Twitter.

Spring is well and truly here as we get into April! The days are getting warmer, and the books are getting hotter. To celebrate, we’re talking with three amazing authors about the urban fantasy genre and the amazing heroines that populate their worlds. Our special guests this month are Suzanne Johnson (@suzanne_johnson), the debut author of Royal Street, about a junior wizard sentinel in a New Orleans recently devastated by Hurricane Katrina; Deborah Coates (@debcoates), the debut author of Wide Open, about an army veteran who comes home from Afghanistan for her sister’s funeral, and is greeted at the airport by her sister’s ghost; and A. M. Dellamonica (@alyxdellamonica), the author of Blue Magic, a powerful story of private lives changed by earthshaking events and magic. These incredible rising stars of the urban fantasy world will discuss their books, magic, and the popularity of the urban fantasy genre.

The chat will be loosely moderated by Tor/Forge Digital Marketing Manager Cassandra Ammerman (@leanoir), and fans are invited to follow or join in using the Twitter hashtag #TorChat!
