Some fun things are going on this week & next, so I thought I'd give you a quick update.
1. Today is the last day to register for my online How to Write a Killer Synopsis workshop. (You can still register for the Query Writing 101 workshop which starts next week and includes 3 critiques of your query.) You don't need a finished manuscript for the synopsis workshop, and it's helpful for writers at any stage in the publishing journey. Go here for details.
2. This Saturday I'll be doing a group panel/signing with Katie McGarry (whose book Pushing The Limits I recommended to EVERYONE last summer after I read it. Have you read it? No? GO FORTH AND READ.) and Kristin Tubb (whose amazing Autumn Winifred Oliver Does Things Different changed my approach to how I include sensory detail in my manuscripts and who has a super fun new book out!).
We'll be at Parnassus Books in Nashville (Green Hills) at 3 p.m. Bring your questions! Get some signed books for yourself or as a gift! Say hello so we know we aren't talking to ourselves! (Although we're perfectly capable of that!)
3. Are you a reviewer who'd love to get your hands on an ARC of Deception? Harper Collins has asked me to post a form for all ARC requests. Check the tabs along the top of the blog for the ARC REQUEST tab. As always, Harper makes all final decisions on where to send the ARCs and has to date been amazingly impervious to bribes of chocolate and Jeremy Renner.
I know. I'm as shocked as you are.
