Peter Lerangis - the Pre-#LA13SCBWI Conference Interviews

Team Blogger Jolie Stekly interviews award-winning author and conference faculty member Peter Lerangis (over 160 books, 5 million copies sold!) as we gather momentum toward the 2013 SCBWI Summer Conference, coming up this August 2-5, 2013.

Jolie gets Peter to open up about his past, his failed inklingectomy, and of course, the best piece of advice he's ever received about being a writer (which he quite happily didn't follow.)

It's pretty hysterical.  And don't miss the embedded video of Peter at New York ComicCon, surveying the crowd for who knows the seven wonders of the ancient world (which ties in nicely with his latest book, New York Times Bestselling THE COLOSSUS RISES, Book 1 of The Seven Wonders Series!)

Peter will be giving a Friday morning PROtrack workshop on "Genre Switching," a Friday Keynote, "Taking the 'Middle' Out of Middle Grade Fiction: A Writer's Manifesto" and a Saturday morning workshop "Getting Serious With Series."

To see Peter in person and partake of all the craft, business, inspiration, opportunity and community the SCBWI Summer Conference offers, you'll need to join us.  There are only a few spaces left - you can get all the details and still register here.

Illustrate and Write On,
