Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Luminous Words Press has announced the first Barnes & Noble book signing for Author of The Labyrinth Wall, Emilyann Girdner. Her appearance at the Semi-Annual Big Bend Area Book Signing for Local Authors from 2:00pm to 6:00pm on May 31st, 2014 has Tallahassee’s Young Adult Fantasy Fiction fans abuzz. This will also be Mrs. Girdner’s first book signing since her debut novel hit the Amazon Best-Seller list. Tallahassee, her hometown, is expected to have a big turnout for support as the community celebrates the local author’s success.
The Labyrinth Wall, which was written during Emilyann’s semi-truck traveling adventure with her husband and cat, has come a long way. In addition to landing the Amazon Best-Seller list, the book has been #2 on the Goodreads First Person Fantasy Sci-Fi list, and received high praise from Young Adult Fantasy readers. Fans of The Obsidian Series are looking forward to the second installment (release date yet to be announced). “If you enjoy books like The Hobbit (with a slightly lighter feel), you will definitely enjoy The Labyrinth Wall by Emilyann Girdner. I can’t wait to read the next book” raves one fan. In addition to The Hobbit, the book and writing style have also been compared to The Hunger Games and even Harry Potter. Fellow Young Adult Author, Crystal Collier, wrote, “Wow. This book was engaging. It's been a while since I felt COMPELLED to keep reading, but Emilyann definitely pulled that one off magnificently” (Amazon Reviews). First published in January 2014, The Labyrinth Wall was an instant bestseller, appealing to both teen readers and adults.
Having also recently celebrated the major-league baseball debut of Cole Figueroa, Emilyann’s former Florida High classmate, Tallahassee is full of big news and pride in 2014. Emilyann has said of her upcoming Tallahassee visit, “I’m so honored by the support I’ve received from the Tallahassee community and can’t wait to be home.”
