The New Adult Revolution
Ooligan Press invites you to Write to Publish: The New Adult Revolution! The sixth annual Write to Publish conference will be held at Portland State University from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on February 15, 2014 at the Native American Student Community Center (NASCC). The conference aims to demystify the publishing process for writers and others interested in the industry and invites all ages of the public to explore the meaning of New Adult, listen to authors, share in their experiences, and gain information about an industry that is ever-changing.
Allison Moon is a writer who has self-published two books under her Lunatic Ink imprint, Lunatic Fringe in 2011 and Hungry Ghost in 2013, both of which are a part of her Tales of the Pack series. The series is described as a lesbian coming-of-age story—with werewolves. Allison documented her self-publishing journey in her video blog, 90 Days of Self Publishing, which is available on her website talesofthepack.com.
