Story Telling in the Digital Age Lecture to Highlight Local eBook Authors
Harrisburg, PA, February 05, 2011 -- Learn about story telling in the digital age with Pennsylvania e-novel authors Peter Durantine and John Luciew during a free lecture open to the public at 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, February 22, 2011, at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in Pannsylvania.
Both authors will join with Charles Palmer, executive director of the University's Center for Advanced Entertainment and Learning Technologies, for a panel discussion about the challenges and contributions technology adds to storytelling.
Durantine is author of The Chocolate Assassin, which focuses on chocolate maker Martin Hahn’s mysterious past, which is unraveled by a murder and a police investigator who is searching for answers. A resident of Hummelstown, Durantine attended the University of Maryland before going to work as a journalist for such news organizations as Roll Call, The Washington Business Journal and the Associated Press. As a reporter, he covered a variety of beats, from farms and religion to government and politics. He is part owner, co-publisher and editor of TheBurg, a monthly community newspaper in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Patriot-News journalist John Luciew is the author of four ripped-from-the-headlines fictional thrillers that mix politics and suspense: Kill The Story, Zero Tolerance, Secrets Of The Dead and Fatal Dead Lines. His first mystery was published as a mass market paperback by traditional New York house Simon & Schuster in 2004, but it garnered only middling sales. Luciew's foundering fiction career revived in 2008 when sales of the electronic copy of that first book, Fatal Dead Lines, began taking off. He promptly self-published his backlist of mysteries as e-books in 2008 and 2009 to ever-building sales. He's now at work on a fifth thriller, to be published exclusively as an e-book later this year.
