Lightfall book cover


We are crazy thrilled to have author Tim Probert in for a video call about LIGHTFALL on Sunday, October 25th at 10 AM PST.  You can join us on the livestream (though, please kids, ALWAYS make sure it is OK with your adults before you go clicking any links!) on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/q7bS1dNehYw  -- depending on what you use to access that link, you should be able to ask questions that we'll read on air for you as well.  Or, you can watch the conversation afterwards!  Either way we sure hope you join us, though!
