Happy New Year, SoCal Friends!
Get your writing year off to a great start with OCCRWA’s January meeting.

***SPECIAL NOTICE***
Starting in January 2011, OCC meetings will begin at 10:00 AM, rather than 10:30, and doors will open at 9:00.

The 2011 BBB (Book Buyer’s Best) Contest deadline is January 8th! Published authors, don’t miss this chance to get your books in front of a first-round panel of librarians, booksellers, and readers, and possibly final judge Sue Grimshaw of Borders Group, Inc.! General Information, Rules and Entry Form are available on the OCC website.

MONTHLY MEETING:

OCC’s next monthly meeting will be Saturday, January 8th, at the Brea Community Center, at 695 E. Madison Way, on the corner of Randolph Ave. and Madison Way.

In the morning, New York Times-bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub presents “Ask Me Anything!”


Wendy is the NYT-bestselling, RITA-award-winning author of over seventy published novels–but her professional experience touches every corner of the publishing map. She worked in two independent bookstores during college, then moved alone to New York City to work as a book editor for a Manhattan publishing house and an account coordinator for a major advertising agency, while launching her own writing career. She has published in various genres including suspense, horror, historical and contemporary romance, women’s fiction (as Wendy Markham), television and movie tie-in, and biography. Her latest book, SCARED TO DEATH (Avon Books, January 2011), is part of an all-new suspense trilogy.

In her interactive presentation, Wendy will discuss her wealth of varied experience in the publishing world and invite questions on everything from writing, to editing, to bookselling. She invites OCC members and guests to “Ask anything!”


In the afternoon, author HelenKay Dimon presents “How Not to Forrest Gump Your Way Through Your Writing Career.”

Bestselling and award-winning author HelenKay spent twelve years in the most unromantic career ever – divorce lawyer. After dedicating all that time and effort to helping people terminate relationships, she is thrilled to write romance novels full time. Her debut novella appeared in the April 2006 Brava anthology release, WHEN GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO BAD BOYS with Lori Foster and Erin McCarthy. Since then she has sold more than twenty-five books to Kensington, Berkley, Harlequin and Samhain. Her books have been featured at E! Online and in the Chicago Tribune, and she has had two books featured as “Red-Hot Reads” in Cosmopolitan Magazine. When not writing, she teaches fiction and romance writing at MiraCosta College and UCSD and generally wastes a lot of time watching bad SyFy channel movies.

Doors open at 9:00 AM for Ask-an-Author with Susan Squires.

See you there!
