Time to check in on Day 3 of the Writers Helping Writers AMAZING RACE, where Becca, myself and a host of incredibly generous folks are priming writerly engines with M & Ms, coffee, licorice, Dr. Pepper and anything else we can get our hands on to keep our fingers flying across the keyboard.
We are on a mission to help, and to date, we’ve managed to assist over 150 writers by critiquing pitches, queries, first pages, answering publishing -related questions and so much more. (WAY TO GO, RACERS!)
I’d like to show off a few more books today from authors in our writing community! Some great covers and plot lines, if I do say so myself–please check them out!

This live session will run at 8:30pm EDT (think New York) on Saturday, October 26th, and is open to 20 participants. If you struggle with Character Building, this is the webinar for you, because we’re going to look at how to go DEEP into backstory to truly understand who your character is and what motivates him.
PLUS, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the AMAZING online classroom facilities at WANA International, host to an incredible selection of e-classes on writing craft, social media, marketing and more. (Click the link above to check it out–you won’t be sorry!)
