LIT UP: A Conversation between OC Writers and Readers (Facebook) LIT UP: A Conversation between OC Writers and Readers (MeetUp) monthly meeting for June 18 will be:

A roundtable discussion with two published authors about the process of working with their freelance editor—from raw manuscript to polished final, and landing book deals with respected publishers. From “killing their darlings,” to hammering out plot points, to hunting for agents and publishers, these three tell it all. It’s a no-holds-barred conversation among two writers and one editor, who never quit until each grabbed the literary brass ring.

Elaine Ash photo Elaine Ash, Editor--At Beat to a Pulp webzine, Elaine worked directly with writers for publication. Today, she works with private clients; shaping manuscripts, acquiring agents and scouting deals. Mental State, a legal thriller she edited through several drafts to final, was publisher-nominated for the Edgar Award in 2018. Elaine’s crime series (writing as Anonymous-9) won two Readers’ Choice Awards from the House of Crime and Mystery, Canada. She is the inventor of Bestseller Metrics, a testing system for novels nicknamed “moneyball for authors.”

Jonathan Brown photo Jonathan Brown has three books releasing in 2019, starting with A Boxing Trainer’s Journey—A Novel Based on the Life of Angelo Dundee, commissioned by Mentoris Books. His series debut, The Big Crescendo, is about Lou Crasher, a struggling Los Angeles drummer in dangerous pursuit of a rare snare—release is slated for November by Down & Out Books. Finally, Moose’s Law, a noir novella, will be self-published soon. When not drumming and practicing martial arts, Jonathan and his wife enjoy life in sunny southern California.

Chrome Oxide photo 2018 Writers of the Future published finalist, Chrome Oxide, toiled many years writing humor and satire until his short story collection 28 Minutes into the Future was published. Tangent Online, the premiere review magazine for short science fiction and fantasy since 1993, named five stories from "28" to its recommended reading list for 2018. Chrome's work has been praised by the late sci-fi legend Jerry Pournelle, as well as David Farland—New York Times bestselling author, and Coordinating Judge of the Writers of the Future contest. Chrome credits his success to “inadequate discouragement from my writers’ group.”


For the discerning reader, Chrome Oxide will have copies of his recently released 28 Minutes Into The Future, a collection of his humorous science fiction and fantasy short stories.
