Johnny B Truant and Sean PlattWrite Better Stories, Faster

Writing a bestselling book doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

 After publishing over a hundred books across several genres, the bestselling authors of the Sterling & Stone Story Studio have developed a process for every new book they write, and they’re ready to share it with you. 

Format: Pre-recorded Video


Attendees will learn how a little bit of preparation and planning can help them write a better story in less time, even if they’re a pantser.


Sean Platt and Johnny B Truant are the founders of Sterling & Stone, an independent publishing company with eight imprints in various genres. Both Sean and Johnny write for many (or all) of the imprints.

Together, they have written more than 5 million words in the last 4 years in virtually every genre. They write under five pen names, in addition to the books each writes in his own name, both fiction and non-fiction. In June 2014, the two wrote a full book from idea to publication, live in 30 days in front of thousands of people.

Not only are Sean and Johnny the writers behind such best-selling series as Invasion and Yesterday’s Gone, with third co-writer David Wright, they also host the popular Self-Publishing Podcast (as well as many other podcasts). They get emails literally every single day from readers who love their fiction and writers who credit them with changing the way they approach their business and even changing their lives.
