Local Amazon Best-Selling novelist and middle school teacher Guy Simpson of Rainier will debut his second mythological fantasy novel The Brotherhood of Olympus and the Tower of Dreams with an author appearance and book signing as he hosts the upcoming Sundance Sunday screening of “What We Do in the Shadows” at Yelm Cinemas, Sunday, April 17, 2016.
The author will be hosting the two screenings of the 86 minute comedic New Zealand Mockumentary about vampires coping with the modern world. The movie times are at 1:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. The author will begin his host duties at 1:00 p.m. and will continue after each show. This is the first time Yelm Cinemas has had an author host their new Sundance Sunday film event. Tickets are available on their website for both shows.
Simpson, a science and leadership teacher, award winning artist and illustrator, and member of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association, has been working on the Brotherhood of Olympus Saga for over thirty years while collecting extensive research for the myths, legends, and art that lies as the foundation of the tale. He is currently working on the third book in the saga.
Based on true events and set in the early 1980s in Hoquiam and Vancouver, Washington, The Brotherhood of Olympus and the Tower of Dreams is the second book in the series and tells the story of Drake Fraser, a painfully shy, intellectually gifted fifteen year-old boy growing up with his four brothers.
Three months have passed since the Fraser brothers defeated the demons who caused the death of their uncle, united by the struggle they founded the Brotherhood of Olympus. Now a war of mythological proportions looms on the horizon, and the original Brotherhood is beginning to unravel before they even begin to face the new dangers that await them. As the leader, Drake must recruit a ragtag ensemble of social misfits to form the core of his new Brotherhood. The dark gods are poised to strike, and a legendary tower that travels across different realities holds the key to their victory over humanity. Only one thing stands in the way of their plan to unleash Hell on Earth. The Brotherhood of Olympus—if they can survive high school, learn to trust each other, and become the heroes they were meant to be.
Clyde Lewis, host of the nationally syndicated “Ground Zero” radio show said, “Guy T. Simpson, Jr. is a brilliant author who is bound for great places, he is an expert at bringing the world of the paranormal to the written page, his stories are a rare treat.”
