Local Wabash Valley author James C. Wallace II, creator of the critically acclaimed Royal Magician of Oz Trilogy will be appearing at local independent bookstore, BookNation in support of his newest release, Family of Oz.
Mr. Wallace, the Royal Liaison to Princess Ozma will be appearing from 5:30-7:00pm on Friday, March 4, 2011 at BookNation Bookstore, 677 Wabash Ave to discuss his latest children's book and to autograph copies of Family of Oz, the third and final volume of the Royal Magician of Oz Trilogy.
The Royal Magician of Oz Trilogy is a 3 volume tale of magic and wonder that recalls the cherished values of family, Love, friendship, loyalty and courage. These timeless tales of Oz remind us of the value of overcoming our deepest fears and conquering the challenges that might otherwise defeat us. Volume One; Magician of Oz, Volume Two; Shadow Demon of Oz and Volume Three; Family of Oz are now available.
Currently, the Royal Liaison to Princess Ozma is completing his fourth book, which chronicles a unique tale of adventure between the Land of Oz and the World of Alice in Wonderland.
Mr. Wallace will also be in attendance by invitation to Oz-Stravaganza 2011 as a Featured Author in Author's Alley from June 3-5, 2011. Oz-Stravaganza takes place every year in June in Chittenango, NY, the birthplace of L. Frank Baum, original author of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz books. This is the longest running Oz festival in the nation and is considered the premier event in the Oz calendar
Earlier today, I sent out a press release regarding an upcoming author appearance in support of Family of Oz. In the madness of trying to accomplish that and having a toddler grandchild underfoot, I spoke about the Royal Liaison to Princess Ozma completing his fourth book, which chronicles a unique tale of adventure between the Land of Oz and the World of Alice in Wonderland.
I neglected to mention that Mr. Wallace is co-authoring said book with Ron Baxely, Jr.. That collaboration will result in the release later this year of their first venture into both Oz and Wonderland.
In addition, the new book will feature the stunning artwork of Gwendolyn Tennille Adams.
I can confirm that the new novel blending the worlds of Oz and Wonderland will blaze new ground in the world of literature. Expect great things from this new collaboration and vision.
