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.

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

Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson
“By now, it is probably very late at night, and you have stayed up to read this book when you should have gone to sleep. If this is the case, then I commend you for falling into my trap. It is a writer's greatest pleasure to hear that someone was kept up until the unholy hours of the morning reading one of his books. It goes back to authors being terrible people who delight in the suffering of others. Plus, we get a kickback from the caffeine industry...”

I love Johnny Worthen. I haven't read a book of his I didn't enjoy. This book is one that sticks with you for days, thinking of the darker side of humanity and just how darkness is normalized in " Read more of this review »
