Johnny Worthen is an award-winning, best-selling author of books and stories. A Utah Writer of the Year. Trained in modern literary criticism and cultural studies, he writes upmarket multi-genre fiction, symbolized by his love of tie-dye and good words. “I write what I like to read,” he says. “This guarantees me at least one fan.”

Johnny is best known (so far) for his award winning, nationally acclaimed, best-selling young adult novel, ELEANOR, THE UNSEEN. It is a great book and if you haven’t read it, you need to.

Arggghhhhh. Hey Sandy. I just found this. I'm an idiot.

THE UNSEEN series is currently a Trilogy: Book 2 is CELESTE and is available now, though it's slated for release on the 14th. Amazon has all the power. Book 3 is called DAVID and is scheduled for 2016. No exact date yet.

There's an ARC give-away coming up this week for CELESTE. And there's another one for release copies on my website.

Awards are cool


I teach it and I try to live it, but it rain’t always easy. Writing —art in general I suppose, is subjective and hard, full of rejection and heart ache. Any validation of one’s work is welcome and big validation, say, like winning awards from your peers is an absolute wonder. 

At this year’s League of Utah Writers Quills Conference, yours truly won several awards.

This is a complicated question, it depends on what you're trying to do. Traditional publishers can be hunted by Google searches by genre, as can agents. Self, or "indie" publishing is a different thing and Amazon Kindle Direct is the primary resource See Full Answer
