John Olson will be our featured speaker.
Christy Award winner John Olson writes stirring and dramatic novels, ranging from his latest paranormal spiritual thrillers Powers and highly acclaimed Shade to his science fiction action adventures Oxygen and Fifth Man. Tosca Lee, author of Demon:A Memoir and Havah writes, “I got goose bumps…The kind of scary that you crave and cringe at…Thanks a lot, John Olson--because of you, I will not walk alone at night for a long time to come." For more information, see his website: www.litany.com
John earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and did postdoctoral research at the University of California at San Francisco. After eight years as a director and principal scientist at a major scientific software company, John has quit his day job to devote himself full-time to a ministry of writing and speaking. He lives in San Leandro with his wife, Amy, and their two children.
The award-winning novelist will speak on “Writing Like an Entrepreneur.” John will teach new creative processes and new ways of thinking in order to thrive in this rapidly changing world of publishing. With book store closures, e-books, POD, web-based marketing, etc. the publishing industry is in the midst of a massive revolution. All the rules are changing. When the dust finally settles, only the novelists who have learned how to write and market their books like entrepreneurs will be left standing.
