OnceWritten.com at the 2007 West Hollywood Book Fair
As always, we had a great time at the 2007 West Hollywood Book
. For the first time, we brought one of those spinn-y wheel of fortune thingees, and although we had hundreds
of prizes with us, they had all pretty much disappeared by early afternoon. (A thousand apologies to Ruston,
who looks like the headless Carney in this picture.)
This year we also gave out nearly 300 orange and purple OnceWritten.com Book Bags stuffed full of materials from our sponsors.
They were a huge hit, and even though we had more bags than last year, we still didn't bring enough to meet all the
demand. It was especially cool when a couple people stopped by our booth carrying their bags from last year. In total, we
probably had nearly 500 visitors to our booth, and more fun, we had the great pleasure of meeting about 20 OnceWritten.com
For me, one of the day's highlights
was getting to meet one of my favorite authors, the wonderful Ms. Megan Crane
Also, an extra-big smooch goes out to author Sam Moffie
who flew out from Ohio! to spend
the day in our booth signing autographs and answering questions from the general public.
And a huge kudos goes to our art designer, Charles Gregory, who is talented, wonderful and who really helped simpilfy the
process of designing our magazines. If you're looking for some help with cover designs or other
graphic design needs, check his website at: www.persuasioncreative.com
And finally, a big thanks to all our sponsors, partners and friends, listed below,
without whom we wouldn't have been able to make this program happen.
Thank You To...

Catchers in the Sky
Genre: Military Thriller
A revolutionary airborne weapons system barely off the drawing board. A diverse and divided crew from the Air Force Research Lab. As a reunification treaty with North Korea breaks down and the peninsula slides toward war, the untested men and women of the Airborne Laser (Experimental) must try to hold the line at a modern Thermopylae.
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy / Science Fiction
Simon Kent is just an ordinary teenager trying to cope with the loss of his parents and the bullies at the local high school . . . or so he thinks. After meeting an outspoken girl named Tonya, he is swept into a futuristic world filled with dragonlike creatures and good-natured giants; however, he soon finds that this new world is quite unlike the other millions of worlds that coexist in the same location of space and time but in different dimensions: It is void of the magical properties required for inter-dimensional travel.
While fighting mystical creatures, unraveling an ancient history, and even experiencing his first kiss, Simon discovers that he, an outsider from Earth, is the only one who can save the high-tech planet from an impending doom. And in the process, he also discovers true friendship, his unique destiny, and, ultimately, a way home.
