Aurelia Sands of Deer Hawk Publications is joining us at our Symposium. Aurelia will lead two sessions in the morning and sit on our Agent, Author, Editor Panel after lunch.
Aurelia’s bio is below:
Aurelia’s interest in the written word began at a very young age. For as long as she can remember, she was writing stories and dreaming of the day they would be published. She wrote her first full length novel at the age of 21, and after more rejections than she could count, she decided to start her own publishing company. In 2005, she started off with one book, one author, an editing certificate, and a business license. Since then, she has slowly built her company. She has added more editors, multiple authors, and multiple books. Her passion for the written word continually evolves as she learns new writing techniques and marketing strategies. She loves to find new talent with nontraditional story ideas and enjoys seeing what the final outcome will be. She enjoys publishing everything from horror to science fiction to romance and specializes in Southern fiction. As an author, editor and publisher, she understands the amount of work that goes into taking a book form idea to published work. The unique perspective she has because of her experiences helps her to connect and empathize with her authors.
