There are many who aspire to publish books. There are few who do so. Stephanie Landsem shared her publication secrets recently at Loome Theological Booksellers.
Christopher Hagen, the proprietor of Loome Theological Booksellers, grilled Stephanie Landsem in a hard hitting wide ranging 45 minute interview accompanied by challenging and penetrating questions from the audience (which included a surprisingly articulate group of 13 year old young ladies!). From the conception of her story ideas, through writing, critiquing, submitting to contests, publication offers, and marketing Landsem unstintingly gave of her experiences and insights.
After the interview Landsem generously signed copies of her books, answered more questions, held the Hagen's infant son, and gave away a copy of The Thief.
Landsem's visit was the first of many this year at Loome Theological Booksellers. There will be more authors and speakers coming to Loome every month of 2014. If there is a particular author or speaker whom you would recommend to Loome and whom resides in or will be visiting the Twin Cities this year, please let us know.
