Release party at “Aileen’s Pub”

There was a release party for J. L. Hilton’s digital cyberpunk thriller STELLARNET REBEL, the first book in the Stellarnet Series, at Tir na nOg Irish Pub in downtown Raleigh from 7-9pm January 5, 2012.

The cake was not a lie!

Live traditional Irish music was provided by Kilcarragh, featuring Hunter Murray on the Irish Button Accordion and Mark Van Sciver on guitar, bodhrán (the Irish frame drum), bones and vocals. Kilcarragh specializes in playing Irish house music – the music of the small pubs and local gatherings so popular in Ireland, and which plays a role in the novel.

“Aileen’s Pub” in the Asteria space colony was inspired by Tir na nOg and the author’s Irish heritage.
