New Local Publishing House Launches First Book At The Calgary Observatory

Tyche Books Ltd. is celebrating the release of their first book, “Ride the Moon,” with a book launch event on Saturday, March 24.
March 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Calgary, Alberta – Seven months ago, two new moms started their own publishing house, focusing on science fiction and fantasy books, and they called it Tyche Books (pronounced tie-key). Tyche Books will celebrate the launch of its first book, an anthology titled Ride the Moon, at the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory on Saturday, March 24 at 8pm.

Available in book stores and online on February 29th, Ride the Moon is a collection of science fiction and fantasy stories from 19 authors from around the world and edited by Calgary author M.L.D. Curelas. Local authors Krista D. Ball (Edmonton, AB), Kevin Cockle (Calgary, AB), Isabella Drzemczewska Hodson (Penticton, BC)  and Billie Milholland (Edmonton, AB) will read selections from their stories which appear in the anthology. Dr. Phil Langill, Director of the Observatory, will give a presentation on the moon.

"This is a huge milestone for us," said Tina Moreau, Co-Owner of Tyche Books. "We’ve made it through the start up phase where you aren’t really sure if it’s going to work out. But it has. This book is just the first of many for Tyche."

The event at the Observatory is free and open to the public. After the readings, the authors will sign books and answer questions from the guests. Copies of Ride the Moon will be available for purchase.
