Harper Collins author Liz Coley to speak in Fairborn November 3rd

(Fairborn, OH) – The Western Ohio Writers Association (WOWA) will host a special book signing and lecture presented by noted young adult fantasy author Liz Coley, beginning at 7PM, Thursday November 3, at the Fairborn Community Center, 1076 Kauffman Avenue. The event is open to the public, but seating is limited. Admission to the session is $2.00 per person for members ($5.00 for non-members) and will be immediately followed by a question and answer session, a book signing and an open critique session for participating local writers.

Liz Coley is a prolific author of young adult science fiction and fantasy. Her published works include six short stories and two novels, including her newest works, Out of Xibalba, now available at Amazon.com, and Pretty Girl 13, a new thriller set for a 2013 release by Harper Collins, Katherine Tegen Books. Her work is also featured in two recently published anthologies, The Last Man Anthology: Tales of Catastrophe, Disaster, and Woe, and More Scary Kisses.

Now living in Ohio, Coley will be speaking as an author who has had a wide range of experiences in her short career. From her point of view, she’ll offer the audience a look at the business and process of publishing fiction, from idea to dealing with agents and publishers. After her presentation, Coley will take questions from the audience and autograph copies of her latest book. Limited copies of Out of Xibalba will be available at a special price at the signing.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to serve with Ms. Coley on several literary conference panels and she is an excellent presenter and a truly gifted writer,” says Gery L. Deer, co-founder and director of the WOWA. “We’re very happy and honored that she agreed to join us and talk about the process of publication from the writer’s perspective. Anyone who is curious about the mysterious world of publishing should take part in this session.”

The Western Ohio Writers Association is based in Greene County and provides networking and educational opportunities to writers of all genres, living and working in southwest-central Ohio. Writers attend monthly critique sessions where they work to develop and hone their writing skill through peer feedback and educational presentations. Meetings are held from 7PM until 10PM on the first Thursday of each month at the Fairborn Community Center.
