Agent Stephen Fraser – Illustrator Adam Gustavson

Stephen Fraser, Literary Agent at The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency is going to be our dinner speaker on November 5th and staying over for the Mentoring Workshop on November 6th.  I realize I never posted what he was going to talk about at dinner.

Amazing and True Stories of Daring and Adventure.

Which is a brief roundup of some the funny and amazing  stories of how books sold during his past seven years as an agent.

Anyone can attend the afternoon of November 5th for free, but you must sign up to attend.  If you want to stay for dinner, then it is $45.  You need to sign up for the dinner and mail your check a head of time.  Space is limited.

If you are an illustrator, don’t miss meeting Adam and his oil demonstration on Saturday November 5th.  Also, if you are an illustrator attending on Saturday, you can sign up for a consultation with Adam, without having to attend the illustrators’ Day on November 6th.  Adams has been very successful in a very short amount of time.  He has illustrated 20 books and has done a lot of illustrations for educational publishers.  Of course, he is very talented, but there are lots of talented people out there who never get published.  He is doing something right and I think he will be worth every penny to get to spend some time with him.  It costs $75 to get a consultation with him.  Of course, anyone coming for Sunday can chose to meet with Adam, too.  Below is Adam in one of his oil paintings. He is the one in the middle drinking the coffee.  I love that pig’s behind.

Hope to see you there.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. LOL I love the pig, too 🙂
