Anna Banks, the author of the New York Times-bestselling “Syrena Legacy: Of Poseidon, Of Triton, and Of Neptune” (all Fierce Reads titles), as well as the standalone novel, “Joyride.”

The featured book for this event will be: “Nemesis,” “This combination fantasy-romance novel touches on issues of trust, allegiance, priorities, and self-sacrifice and ends in a bit of a cliff-hanger. First in a planned duet, “Nemesis” will leave readers wanting more.” –Booklist


Marissa Meyer, the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of “Heartless and The Lunar Chronicles.” She lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and twin daughters. She’s a fan of most things geeky (Sailor Moon, Firefly, any occasion that requires a costume), and has been in love with fairy tales since she was a child.


Lish McBride, an author, bookseller, and all-around ne’er-do-well living in the Seattle area. She has written the much-praised young adult novels “Hold Me Closer,” “Necromancer,” “Necromancing the Stone,” and “Firebug.” When she isn’t working or reading, she is probably on Twitter, talking about how she needs a nap.

In the writing world, Rori is primarily known for her science fiction trilogy, “The Elected Series.” She enjoys running, helping animal causes, and pumpkin-picking.

The event will be moderated by local author Ayesha Patel, the author of “Priya in Heels.”


The event will take place at Kona Stories Book Store at the Keauhou Shopping Center.
