Villains All the News That's Unfit to Print ~ Book-signing with Penelope Dreadfulle

Extra, Extra, read all about it!!!! Come one, come all to a very special themed event: Villains Celebrate the Publishing of our very own Penelope Dreadfulle's first book, The Stolen Songbird.

Come dressed in your favorite Victorian Newsboy outfit and spread the news about Ms. Dreadfulle's fabulous Steampunk novel, The Stolen Songbird.

Author Penelope Dreadfulle's pen name is Dover Whitecliff.
About:
Dover Whitecliff was born in the shadow of Fujiyama, raised in the shadow of Olomana, and can see the shadow of Mt. Shasta if she squints and it’s a really clear day. She is a wordsmith, a blogger, an analyst, and a jack-of-all-trades, but mostly a writer. She crafts the finest tales of alternate history, providing discerning and intelligent readers of steampunk and fantasy with a taste of the Victorian Age as it never was but should have been. Dover spends her free time writing and playing Rock Band with her husband, big brother, little brother, and consigliere, who will graciously allow her to touch the instruments on occasion, but mostly just hand off the microphone. She lives in Sacramento, California with her very patient and wonderful husband and several hundred bears. Her first book, The Stolen Songbird, will be out in 2013.

Ms. Dreadfulle will have copies of The Stolen Songbird with her available to purchase and she will be signing them for you. She will share with you what the phrase "Hot Off The Presses" means to her. Future details regarding the release date of The Stolen Songbird will follow as we get the latest news about the printing of this fascinating story.

Come and support our wonderful WordSmith. You can follow Penny's blog about her journey:

Please feel free to bring minions to this event. We plan on rewarding new minions and those that bring them to our events. Costumes encouraged but never required.

Ms. Penelope Dreadfulle has selected one of her favorite venues for this event the amazing Steampunk style Brewsters Bar & Grill.

Dr. Evil's P.J. Party pt. 2

This was so fun we're doing it again! It's sleepytime for Villains.

Please join us at our Secret Lair emplacement temporaire, The Starlite Lounge.

World domination is tiring, and both villains and minions need a good night's sleep. Dress up in your most evil sleepwear and accessories.

We know that any Villain bent on world domination had had a bit of an unusual childhood and may still harbor some level of insecurities. Dressing evil is their standard, but when it's time for bed they may still cuddle up with their favorite blankie or stuffed animal. Others may retire in their smoking jackets, silk or Asian robes, or perhaps the costume parts of some superhero that they bested. And yes, we know the most purely evil among you sleep in nothing at all, but that is not a costume. Since we're in an adult venue we have a bit more latitude on the range of sleepware, but modern sensibilities still apply.

Are you ready to snuggle up with your fellow Villains? The Cabinet has devised some very special and devious prizes for our top costumes. Best your fellow Villains and you will be the envy of everyone. Evil or Cute, it's the little touches that will make you stand out.
Our event will run from 6:00 to about 9:00 PM. A photo area will be set up with good lighting for photos. We will plan to make announcements and award prizes at about 8:00 so do try to gather upstairs at that time. After that DJ's and live music will be setting up and our portion of the event will be over, but you can stay and dance into the evening.
