Kate Milford launches The Broken Lands, a prequel to her best-selling novel The Boneshaker. The Broken Lands is set in Brooklyn and New York, 1877 during the construction of the bridge that would finally unite the two cities. High Walker and Bones, two henchmen of a man called Jack (who's in search of a place to create his own personal hell) arrive in town intending to prepare the way for their boss's arrival. The task of thwarting them falls to a teenage card sharp and a Chinese fireworker girl. The Kairos Mechanism, a novella that bridges the events between The Boneshaker and Broken Lands, was funded by Kickstarter and published using McJ's Espresso Book Machine. The Kairos Mechanism will be released officially at the party. There will be a brief reading, and less brief celebration.
