Emilyann's North Orange Branch Signing and Q&A


Luminous Words Press today officially announced a book signing and creativity Q&A session at The North Orange Branch (the Apopka branch of the Orange County Library System) for Author of The Labyrinth Wall, Emilyann Girdner. Emilyann’s attendance at the book signing event from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on April 23rd, 2016 will offer library members and the Apopka community a rare opportunity to personally meet the Author and learn more about the writing of the Obsidian Series. The Q&A should run about forty-five minutes to an hour, followed by a photo booth and signing.

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 earned a 5 Star rating from Reader’s Favorite, was a Dante Rossetti Young Adult Fantasy award finalist, has been #2 on the Goodreads First Person Fantasy Sci-Fi list, and has received high praise from Young Adult Fantasy readers in numerous online reviews. “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. 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). The Labyrinth Wall was even mentioned in a tweet by Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, Rudy, 50 First Dates and more).

In The Labyrinth Wall, Araina’s lonely teenage life is forever altered when she witnesses a man with supernatural powers emerge through a rippling wall into the dark and deadly labyrinth she calls home. She is left to solve the mysteries of who he is, why he has special abilities and what is on the other side of the labyrinth wall through which he came. 

Fans of the Obsidian Series books also love the second installment, The Haunted Realm (released in November of 2015). One fan said of The Haunted Realm “I enjoyed the first book in the series so much that I worried that the author's second book would fall short of my hopes. It did not. The scenes connect wonderfully--and readers will find themselves surprised by twists and turns and fast paced action.”
