Free #1st5pages Writing Workshop opens May 5th - and Mentor News!

The Free 1st 5 Pages Writing Workshop will open at noon EST on Saturday, May 5. Please note, we now require that all participants have a completed manuscript. We have had an overwhelming response by agents, and many ask for full manuscripts. Remember, we usually fill up in a minute, so get those pages ready!

We also have exciting mentor news!

Please welcome the wonderful Kelly deVos as a mentor! Kelly is also a contributor at AYAP, coordinating our wonderful WOW posts, so we are thrilled to have her join us at the workshop! Kelly's debut, FAT GIRL ON A PLANE comes out June 5th, and it was named one of B&N Teen's 21 Most Anticipated Debuts of 2018! And there's a Goodreads giveaway you can check out here!


OZLAND, Book 3 in the Everland Series by Wendy Spinale, came out April 24th. I'm reading it now and I love it - and I adore this fun, adventurous, fantasy series!

FALLING INTO PLACE by Stephanie Scott released April 17. Part of the multi-author Summer at Falling Pines Lake series, I really enjoyed this sweet romance about second chances!

ECHO OF GLORY by workshop founder, the wonderful Martina Boone, came out April 26th. I was fortunate enough to read an ARC and trust me, you don't want to miss this book! It's set in Ireland, and rich with romance, history, and legend.

EVERYWHERE YOU WANT TO BE by Christina June comes out May 1st. A modern tale inspired by the classic Red Riding Hood? Yes please!

A CAMPFIRE TAIL by Sarah Glenn Marsh also comes out May 1st - love this adorable cover, and I can't wait to read it!

Make sure to add these mentor books to your TBR list!

THE DEVIL'S THIEF - the sequel to THE LAST MAGICIAN by Lisa Maxwell - I adored THE LAST MAGICIAN so I can't wait for this one!

SVEN CARTER AND THE ANDROID ARMY by Rob Vlock - I was lucky enough to read the second book in this series, and I adored this hilarious, middle grade, sci-fi adventure!!!

And I'd love it if you added my contemporary YA fantasy, UNCHARTED, to your shelf on goodreads!

Happy Reading, Writing, and Revising!
