Young Adult Fiction is on Fire!

Two Brothers: Heritage, Book Two, A Ramtalan Trilogy
Mar.31.2014

2pm – “Young Adult Fiction is on Fire!” at the Ojai Library 111 E Ojai Ave., (805) 646­1639 | FREE | Young adult fiction and its many sub-genres has soared in popularity lately. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about this exciting genre and how to capture a young adult audience, then you’ll want to listen to what multi-genre author Sofia Diana Gabel has to say about the subject. Gabel will read from her YA science fiction novels, the first two books in the trilogy, as well as discuss what makes a book appropriate and exciting for a young adult audience, from character and plot development to relatable content.

This is my event at the 2014 Ojai WordFest writer's conference in Ojai, California.
