Award Winning Novelist DIANNE GREENLAY signs with SILVER BITELA Agency July 28, 2014 Roseville, California – Dianne Greenlay—author of Deadly Misfortune, a brand new award-winning release (Best Historical – Lucky Lucinda Awards; Book of the Year Adult Mystery Category – Foreword Reviews) penned by this superb word-smith and loved by her fans—has signed with SBA.  Ms. Greenlay has won more than a dozen book awards including Best YA (Writer’s Digest), Best Commercial Novel (Eric Hoffer), Best Historical (ReaderViews) and Book of the Year (Foreword Reviews), and in less than 18 months has gathered over three quarters of a million reads on the popular online fan fiction site, Wattpad. Dianne's comedy, The Camping Guy, (an audience Fringe Festival favorite) is available as a one act comedy script and a short. Greenlay is also a playwright and Creative Director of the long-running community theater group, Darkhorse Theater. Dianne says, “I've loved to write and market my efforts on my own because I believe in the material. And I know there's an audience for great characters with whom readers connect—my fan mail is pretty humbling. Between 'meeting' Babz, and getting to know Philip Turner, I must say I'm excited about the team that's now being assembled on my behalf.” Babz Bitela said, "Once again, Stage 32 (a real 'industry matchmaker'), has proven to us that those writers with professional outreach who are not looking for fast fame in an extremely challenging business will be seen and heard. The site's a kind of 'lounge' that lets us all 'cyber chat.' When I read Dianne Greenlay's material, I immediately contacted my partner, Ed Silver, and we agreed to connect with editorial consultant and book agent Philip Turner Book Productions, (our New York liaison). When he read her writing he confirmed to us the rich skill of her work and the opportunity her talent offers to publishers. So while Turner handles the literary side we will focus on the Greenlay brand. We are already getting looks from some of the biggest producers in the world.” A tale of pirates and treasure, love and betrayal, all bound together by a dash of ancient magic, Quintspinner: A Pirate's Quest, is written for both New Adult and adult audiences alike. Meticulously researched, not your typical historical fiction, it presents the “mud and the blood of desperate life in the 1700's.” Bitela adds, “Read her. That's all we're saying. We know Dianne's efforts will be for fans what Twilight and Harry Potter have been for young adult readers. We will be keeping an eye out for production companies with studio deals who recognize Dianne's amazing talent. We'll be ready when they come around.” # # #
