SCBWI CA North/Central presents:
Webinar: An Inside Look at Audiobooks, From Concept to Production, Featuring Angelica R. Jackson and Brenda Scott Wlazlo

Whether your traditional publisher has an audiobook of your story in the works, or you’re an indie author shepherding your book into audio format, get an inside look at audiobooks by tuning into this Nov. 10th webinar featuring two professionals offering perspectives on both sides of the audiobook fence.

Author Angelica R. Jackson will share insights on why you may want to produce your own audiobook (or may want to wait for an offer on your rights), and discuss the steps involved in the audio creation of her young adult, urban fantasy audiobook series. Producer/narrator Brenda Scott Wlazlo will give her perspective on production and meeting the author’s and audiobook distributor’s requirements, how to choose a producer/narrator, and what skills to look for in voice actors so they can bring your characters alive.  $10 for SCBWI members, $25 for non-members

Speaking at South Lake Tahoe Library
Setting the Story Join local author and artist Angelica R. Jackson as she shares how real-life places, like the former Preston School of Industry (aka Preston Castle) in Ione, have shaped her fiction. Angelica's Faerie Crossed series of young adult, urban fantasy novels include a fictional castle based on Preston and the surrounding Mother Lode area. Plus, her ten years of photographing the landmark building led to a book of art photos (along with some ghostly experiences). Her current historical fiction project draws on a legend local to the Block Island area of New England, and a fiery ship that makes its appearance off the rugged coast each year. Join us for a fun and fascinating evening! Free and open to all.
