Alex Temblador

A Free Author & Agent Discussion to Celebrate the Publication of Alex Temblador's Half Outlaw.

 

July 12th, 2022 via Zoom @ 7PM CST

 

Award-winning author Alex Temblador and her literary agent, Mary C. Moore, will join us for a publication-day discussion on Alex's debut in adult fiction, Half Outlaw. In addition to discussing the novel's themes like messy families and identity, they'll discuss the writing process of the book, the path to publication during a pandemic, and their author-agent relationship since Alex's first novel, Secrets of the Casa Rosada, was published in 2018. The discussion will conclude with an audience Q&A.
 

 

Half Outlaw was named a Most Anticipated Crime Book of 2022 by Crime Reads and part of LitHub's 35 Novels You Need to Read This Summer.
