Rogue Prince
Author: Brenda Gable
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services
Prince Wolfrick from the magical New Camelot and his companion Darren the Bastard have been turned into animals by an evil curse. Then Bethany, a modern woman with latent magical power, appears on the scene and might hold the power to free them from the spell. But will evil overcome her first? This is the Lexington County author’s first published novel, and she hopes to turn it into a series. She will be signing copies from 2 to 5 p.m. on Oct. 26 at The Book Dispensary.

Waltzing with Deception
Author: Levon Sparks Salone
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services
The female protagonist of this first novel is an irreligious corporate guru with a secret. Pressure mounts in her life, and her major support comes from a man who is a dedicated Christian. She bridles at what she considers his self-righteousness — until tragedy from an unexpected source threatens his life and she prays for a miracle. The author is a former clinical counselor who lives in Columbia.

Down the Owlhoot Trail
Author: J.E.S. Hays
Publisher: JMS Books
This collection of Wild West short stories follows the early teenage years of two likable scoundrels — Devon Day and the Sweetwater Kid — who aspire to become the best outlaws west of the Mississippi. The stories mix historical perspective, old-fashioned adventure and a slightly skewed sense of humor. One of the stories won second place in Art Affair’s Western Short Story Contest of 2012. The author is a pharmacist from Greenville, and she has published short stories in many different genres. 


Christian Writers Showcase: The Christian Writers Alliance, a nonprofit writers support group founded in 2002, is sponsoring its first SC Christian Writers Showcase with the theme “Remembering Christ at Thanksgiving Through the Christian Writer.” Curtis Wilson, radio personality and former WLTX news anchor, is the keynote speaker for the fundraiser. Among the featured authors is Anna Courie, a fitness writer formerly from Columbia. The event is Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Brookland Banquet and Conference Center in West Columbia. Tickets required. Details at scchristianwritersshowcase.com.
