Barn Owls, Books And Beyond
With a rough draft of what ultimately would become the internationally bestselling memoir Wesley The Owl landing her both an agent and publisher at our LA4 event, author Stacey O'Brien returns to the SCWC to address the pivotal lessons she learned on her way to publication success, from the rigors of polishing chapters to promoting a cause . . .
A New York and L.A. Times bestseller, Audubon Magazine Editor's Choice, People Magazine 4-out-of-4-star pick, and Indie Top Ten favorite, Wesley's precious story has touched and inspired the hearts of millions worldwide. Now out in paperback and published in German, Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese), Korean, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, and a special U.K. (the Queen's English!), the book just keeps building momentum. For those of you following The Owl Box feed phenomenon on uStream.tv, be sure to check out Stacey's blog, where she's addressing at considerable length everything going on with Molly, McGee and all the little 'uns . . .
Another authorial sensation joining us in Newport Beach is none other than Darlene Quinn. Twisted Webs, the sequel to her multiple-award winning Webs of Power, is out September. One of the most market-savvy writers we know, you'll not want to miss what she's learned over the past year that can make the difference between merely publishing books or selling them.
Many more announcements coming soon.
