My fall online workshop schedule is posted, and registration is now open! I'm excited to offer the following workshops:
QUERY 101: Learn how to write the kind of query letter (or jacket copy for indie authors) that will make agents, editors, and readers sit up and take notice. Includes an in-depth critique of your query. *Registration is limited.
HOW TO WRITE A KILLER SYNOPSIS: Learn a simple method for turning your 80k novel into an interesting, two page synopsis without losing your mind.
PROMOTING A NEW RELEASE: Learn the ins and outs of promoting a new release, including a detailed six month plan, tools, and resources useful for debut authors, indie authors, or those who already have books on the shelves.
WRITER'S BOOT CAMP: An intensive two week course on the basics of plot, structure, pacing, and how to write a 70k draft in 7 weeks.
For more information on the courses, the dates, and the cost, head to my workshop site. I look forward to working with you!
