You may not be a fan of the sexy vampire/werewolf/zombie genre (otherwise known as contemporary fantasy), but its hard to hate on the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour. Too often, book signings are overt money grabs, so its refreshing to see one that isnt.
Organized independently by a group of fantasy novelists, the tour which will make a stop at the Scottsdale Civic Center Library truly exists for the readers: theres no admission charge, theres no autograph fee, and the authors wont refuse to sign anything thats not a copy of their books. The event will feature Q&A sessions with several of the tours authors, including best-selling scribes Kelley Armstrong (Darkest Power series) and Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely).
