February is coming right up, and you know what that means - It's Fantasy Romance February!
All month long, you can watch virtual author panels and hear fantasy romance authors talking about the different subgenres. To celebrate FaRoFeb, we at Copper Dog are hosting our very own FaRoFeb panel with indie authors! Among our star-studded cast are Shannon Pemrick, Kathryn Ann Kingsley, and HR Moore!
USA Today bestselling author Shannon Pemrick is a full-time slow-burn romantic fantasy author, fuller-time geek, and unrelenting dragon enthusiast. She owns too many novelty mugs, not enough chocolate, and maintains a forbidden love-affair with all things shiny. When she's not burning her fingers across a keyboard handing out adventures and HEAs, she's rolling dice and getting lost in RPGs or searching for brides for her dragon overlords.
Emma Hamm started her writing journey in online forums where she wrote with friends. They told fantastical tales and dove deep into fantasy realms that they built from scratch. And then Hamm realized she could do this on my own, and that she wanted to write her own book.
Many, many books later and here she is, with more series under her belt than she can count, and a love of storytelling that still burns brightly.
Jacquelyn Benson writes smart historical fantasy where strong women confront the stranger things that occupy the borders of our world.
She once lived in a museum, wrote a master’s thesis on the cultural anthropology of paranormal investigation, and received a gold medal for being clever. She owes a great deal to her elementary school librarian for sagely choosing to acquire the entire Time-Life Mysteries of the Unknown series.
Her debut novel, The Smoke Hunter, was nominated for Best Historical Fiction by RT Times. When not writing, she enjoys the company of a tall, dark, and handsome English teacher and practices unintentional magic.
Kathryn Ann Kingsley from an early age found herself playing with her brother’s action figures, finding them far more compelling and interesting then her own. His were strange and fantastical—grotesque and meant to terrify, where her toys were sweet. And therefore…entirely boring. In particular, she found herself drawn to the most sinister looking of the bunch. That continued all through her life. In movies, in books, in video games, it didn’t matter. She was there for the bad guy. Villains can be more dynamic, more emotional, and can break the rules in ways that a hero cannot. They can be wicked and dark, playful and sweet, violent and terrifying. She loves the monsters.
HR Moore writes sci-fi and fantasy romance. She lives in the UK with her husband, two children, and Jackapoo, Lyra. She's the author of new adult fantasy series, The Relic Trilogy, near-future standalone, In the Gleaming Light, and her latest Ancient Souls Series, which is set in our world, but with reincarnation. She's known for pacy writing with plenty of intrigue ... and she loves a cliffhanger.
Harriet's also the founder of FaRoFeb (Fantasy Romance Feburary), a month-long online event celebrating the fantasy romance genre. For more information, visit www.FaRoFeb.com, or @FaRoFeb on Instagram.
