Our April workshop will be mentored by Lauren Bjorkman and will open for entries on April 6th.
Sadly, our February workshop is over. The participants all did amazing work. Seriously, the transformations on some of these pages left me speechless. Thanks so much to the fabulous Nikki Loftin for being such a wonderful mentor! And as always, thanks to Lisa Gail Green, who always knows exactly what to say and how to get to the heart of the problem to help coax out the best in a WIP.
And hey, did you hear the news? Tiffany Johnson from our December Workshop signed with an agent and is already out on sub with her manuscript after tuning up her pages, and Lori Goldstein from the January Workshop has just followed suit. Lori's manuscript also just made it to the top ten in our Pitch +250 contest, along with Dana Edwards, another workshop veteran. Woot!!!!! Congrats to them all!

Pandora’s just your average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father, her one key to saving the world as we know it. Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike.
