Hi, I’m Kiki Hamilton and I’m the author of THE FAERIE RING, a historical fantasy set in Victorian London releasing September 27th, 2011.
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
Orphaned and picking pockets in London’s Charing Cross station to support not only herself, but her ‘family’ of orphans, sixteen year-old Tiki steals the Queen’s ring and thinks she’s solved their problems. That is, until Rieker, a pickpocket from the North End, suspects her in the theft and tells her that the ring is really a reservoir that holds a truce between the British and Faerie courts.
When he warns her that the fey will do anything, including murder, to recover the ring, Tiki is unsure whether to believe him or not. To complicate matters, Rieker seems to know something about the unusual birthmark on Tiki’s wrist. But when Tiki and her family are threatened the game changes.
What should readers know before stepping into your world?
Be prepared to go back in time, where life is divided between the glittering world of the Royal Palace and the hard-scrabble existence of life in the gritty slums of London. The veil between our world and the Otherworld is at its thinnest and no one is safe.
Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
This will be my first time attending BEA! I’ll be gawking at all the authors just like everybody else!!
Are you speaking on any panels during BEA?
I’m not speaking on any panels but I will be signing ARCs on Tuesday, the 24th at 2:30 at Table 12! Come see me! Say hello! Get a free book! J
Are there any you are looking forward to?
Many of the members of The Class of 2k11 will also be attending BEA and we have a number of events planned, some at Books of Wonder, others at the Voracious Reader and Le Poisson Rouge. We would love to have you or any of your readers come out and say hello. Go here to see the list of events.
I haven’t actually planned out what talks I’m attending at BEA yet. It will have to fit around my other commitments.
If someone wanted to meet up with you at BEA, who should they look for?
Uh….Kiki Hamilton…. ? Is this a trick question? J There will be lots of chances to meet up with me and the other great authors from the Class of 2k11 – if you see me – say hello! I’d love to meet you!
