Successful author Brandon Massey to appear at Fayette County Library

Brandon Massey, a resident of Fairburn and author of six published books, will speak and sign copies of his three most recent novels at the Fayette County Public Library in downtown Fayetteville, on Tuesday, October 30 at 7 p.m. Anyone interested in an inside view into the publishing business should plan to attend, as Massey plans to offer insight into his own experiences getting started as an author and editor, and answer questions from the audience.

Author of such chilling tales of suspense and horror as “Thunderland,” “Within the Shadows,” and “The Other Brother,” Massey has also served as editor for three short story anthologies in the “Dark Dreams” series, spotlighting supernatural fiction by authors of color, including such well-known names as Tananarive Due and Eric Jerome Dickey. Massey will discuss his work in the horror and suspense genres, talk about his books and the inspiration behind them and share his experience finding success as an author and editor. He is particularly interested in answering questions from new and aspiring writers in the community.

Massey’s appearance is the second in the “Chill in the Air” series of three author events at the library this fall, showcasing Atlanta-area writers whose books carry that certain fear factor. Copies of “Within the Shadows” and “The Other Brother” will be on sale, as well as “Vicious,” Massey’s 2006 novel that is normally sold only on the Internet.

The event is sponsored by the Fayette County Public Library and the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library. Admission is free and open to the public and complimentary light refreshments will be available.

The Fayette County Public Library is located behind the Fayette County administrative complex in downtown Fayetteville, at the southwest corner of Ga. highways 85 and 54. For additional information, please contact the library at 770-461-8841.
