Pop-Up Author V.G. Watts

January 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for a Pop-Up with author V.G. Watts! She’ll be in store with her novel An Eclipse of Moths.

Come meet Vivian, hear more about her work, and get a copy Saturday morning from 10am to noon!


For every second of the past five years, Teia’s Time-wield has held Luna suspended at the moment of her death. Some would say they brought it on themselves. Both are members of the infamous Moths, a gang of magic-wielders who prey on the kingdom from the shadows, pulling its strings in the name of finding the mantle for their vicious leader, Atlas. Teia never cared why they were chasing it. All that matters is that the relic can amplify magic far beyond the level of mortals. With it, he might even be able to turn back time.

He’s heard rumors that the mantle is stashed somewhere in the queen’s coffers, but Atlas is convinced it’s a trap—a repeat of the rumors that led to their disastrous failure five years ago. Going near the palace again is forbidden. But one night, when Teia catches a royal spy infiltrating their base, he receives a surprising offer: help the queen bring down Atlas, and be rewarded with anything he wants. Anything.

Teia rejects the offer, but his fortunes flip when he is captured by the queen’s army and imprisoned beneath the palace. Staying there any longer than necessary goes against everything he’s been told, but time is running out. Cracks in the spell holding Luna have already started to appear. There’s opportunity in this disaster: what he wants may lay within the palace walls. If he can play nice long enough to find it. If his own doubts about Atlas don’t start taking over. And if he can survive the machinations of the Moth God himself.


Vivian Watts started her writing life making character sheets for text RPGs with friends as a kid, then in fandom circles as a teen. She graduated from Clemson University with a B.A. in Modern Languages and has worked in everything from assistant teaching and tutoring to food service and retail, but stories have always had her heart. Vivian’s first book, AN ECLIPSE OF MOTHS, debuted this October. She is currently working on the sequel, A FLAME OF DEATH.
