ROME, Ga. -- The Greater Rome Convention & Visitors Bureau will honor a local author whose novel was published after his death.
Lords of the North Kingdom: Blood and Stone is the first novel in a planned adventure series. Its author, Jason Fordham, died of cancer last September at age 39.
Rome's Last Stop Gift Shop will hold a book debut event for Lords of the North Kingdom on Thursday, July 10 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Jim Curry published the book in Fordham's memory.
"Jason was an avid reader, actor, director, producer, game designer and writer, to mention only a few of his creative and intellectual endeavors," Curry said. "While most of his life's work was devoted to community theater, Jason was just as passionate about his other pursuits."
