Orange City Library: Brendan Lamerton Book Launch for Bonded

Thu 2 May at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Come along to Orange City Library to meet local author Brendan Lamerton when he launches his first book – a fantasy novel titled Bonded – on Thursday 2 May at 5.30pm.

When a chance encounter in the forest marks Jin as one of the “bonded” and word spreads that one of the Great Schools is coming to recruit new students, it seems like he might finally get that opportunity. But nothing is ever that easy.

Before the School even arrives, he’ll have to deal with missing townsfolk, hopping vampires, and a powerful lord who hates him.  And he’ll have to do it all before the “bond” drives him crazy.

He grew up an avid fan of fantasy novels and early morning cartoons. Unsure of what he wanted to do as adult, he got a degree in accounting, has worked in local government and I.T., at bars and breweries, and as both a 35mm and digital projectionist, but it wasn’t until he started a daily train commute for a job in the city that he took up writing, writing the first draft of his novel on his phone.

He now spends his free time writing, combining aspects of two of his favourite things from childhood: fantasy worlds and cartoon action.

All welcome.
