This is it–the FINAL DAY of the Writers Helping Writers Amazing Race!
Today we give one last push to help as many writers as we can. It’s not too late to throw your hat in the ring if you’d like to ask for help! Just fill out THIS FORM if you need an extra pair of eyes, some advice, visibility or feedback on all things writing and publishing. Let us help you–it’s all through email, completely private.
I have a few more books to show off, and then it’s time for THE GRAND PRIZE. So without further ado, here’s some intriguing books to add to your FALL READS list!
Vengeance (Urban Fantasy Romance)
The demons that haunt you don’t have to be your own.
Maddy Niteclif’s world has changed so radically she’s no longer sure she recognizes the face staring back at her in the mirror. Pale skin, wide eyes, new scars, and even newer wounds. They’ll heal. It’s the invisible wounds—the ones that disfigure the soul—that pose the most danger.
Gethyon (YA Sci-Fi)
Abandoned by his mother after his father’s death, Gethyon Rees feels at odds with his world and longs to travel the stars. But discovering he has the power to do so leaves him scarred for life. Worse, it alerts the Siah-dhu—a dark entity that seeks his kind for their special abilities—to his existence, and sets a bounty hunter on his trail.

One determined girl.
One resourceful boy.
One miracle machine that could destroy the world.
And upcoming November book, Walls of Wind (Science Fiction–click to reach author’s website)
What if men and women really were different species? Would they ever be able to understand each other, respect each other’s differences? Would they be able to agree on the governance of a shared society and to live together as equals?
The novel, Walls of Wind, explores these questions by postulating a world in which males and females are two different species, symbiotic in their reproductive process but otherwise having little in common. Or so it seems, until a terrifying threat at the borders of their city-state forces them to set aside their differences and learn to understand and appreciate each other.
It’s been a fun week of giveaways, hasn’t it? Well, we thought we should end things on an AMAZING note…
Our grand prize giveaway today focuses on yet another critical area of writing.
Today, Writers Helping Writers is helping with…EDUCATION.
How often have you read a blog post or tweet about an upcoming conference and WISHED you could go? But ugh, when you pile up airplane tickets, hotel, food and attendee costs, the sticker shock is far too jarring.
But we all know how important these conferences are, for learning, for support and networking and to prove our own commitment to the path. Luckily there’s an organization out there that recognizes that sometimes if it’s too costly for the writer to travel to the conference, the conference needs to come to them!
FREE WRITING CONFERENCE PASS

We are thrilled to have so many people be a part of this Amazing Race. It’s been an honor to read so much of what people are working on, and help in small ways. All of you guys are just terrific, and we thank you for the support, the social sharing and comments!

Thanks so much for this! Happiness! J
This has been a wonderful experience. I got feedback from Becca and Mart, and I truly appreciated their time and insight. Thank you all for reaching out to writers.
Wow, this *has* been terrific. Thank you for your help!
And just because you’ve been so inspiring for me to ask for help, I’ll ask one more time. If anyone has time left today to offer feedback on my query letter that would rock. But I totally understand if you’re just too swamped (or exhausted)!
