Our time spent at the LA Times Festival of Books this past weekend was a HUGE success.
Not only did we get a stack of excellent submissions, Jess and I sold books like Beyonce wrote them, AND we landed another awesome intern!!!!
Janene has been creating and telling stories since before she could read. At age 12 she entered a contest for high schoolers, figuring there was no way she would win. Instead, she found herself confessing to the organization, upon placing as a finalist, that technically she was not old enough to have entered.
In her early teens she joined a group of young writers, helping proofread and edit their work. Many of them had no real knowledge of how to properly mold their words. That’s when it clicked for Janene. She wanted to help people share their stories.
Prior to college, Janene was mostly homeschooled, but is now attending LBCC. Writing is simply a part of her life. She lives, learns and writes in Lakewood, CA with her three cats and two dogs.
We are super happy campers here at Acorn Publishing to have Janene join our team.
