KS – Archmage Launch Party

KS-RA-Salvatore-Banner

Press Release:

Watermark Books & Cafe hosts author R.A. Salvatore at Abode Venue for a reading and signing of Archmage on Monday, August 31 at 6:00 p.m. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., and the event will also include a cash bar. Abode Venue is located at 1330 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS, 67214.

Tickets for the event are $28.95+tax and include a copy of the new book Archmage. The book officially comes out on Tuesday, September 1, but it will be available for pick-up at the event on Monday night. Order your ticket NOW to pre-order a copy of Salvatore’s newest Drizzt book! Tickets can be ordered online by clicking the ticket link or by calling Watermark Books & Cafe at 316.682.1181.

The pall that had descended over the North is gone, and a new day has dawned on a victorious Mithral Hall, but no matter how bright things seem on the surface, Drizzt and his companions know that what lurks just under their feet remains steeped in evil and charged with unimaginable power.

The dark elves of Menzoberranzan, including the powerful Archmage Gromph, aren’t done with Drizzt yet. And consumed by their own power struggles, feeling backed into a corner, the drow may just be desperate enough to call on demonic forces from the deepest reaches of the Abyss, and unleash a disaster even the Underdark could never have prepared for. Archmage has everything Drizzt’s fans crave: action, adventure, characters that resonate with equal measures of warrior spirit and deep compassion, and no shortage of wicked dark elves.

About This Convention
The Free State Comicon is an “old-fashioned” comic book convention, primarily focused on comic books, those who write, draw, and otherwise create comic books. The show is interested in fostering the many newer artists and writers who self-produce, self-publish, or create webcomics, and of course the rich body of talent that is the Kansas City comic book creator community. This will be the 8th year for this annual convention, which takes place in Lawrence, Kansas.
