The Free #1st5pages Workshop Opens Saturday - and we have Mentor News!

Our July workshop will open on Saturday! In addition to our wonderful permanent mentors, we have Laurie Stolarz  as our author mentor and Paula Munier  of Talcott Notch as our agent mentor! For more information, read the post, here!

We also have exciting mentor news!


EVERYWHERE YOU WANT TO BE by Christina June came out May 1st. I loved this book - a modern tale inspired by the classic Red Riding Hood!

FAT GIRL ON A PLANE came out June 5th. I adored this YA contemporary, and it was easy to see why it was named one of B&N Teen's 21 Most Anticipated Debuts of 2018!


Our workshop founder, Martina Boone, has another wonderful book coming out in July, PIRATE QUEEN - Grace O'Malley of Connacht! I'm so looking forward to reading this!

I'm so excited for IF THIS WERE A STORY, a middle grade contemporary by Beth Turley, releasing August 28! Beth isn't just a wonderful mentor, she was a workshop participant!

Brenda Drake has two books to add to your TBR pile! I love the Fated Series, so I can't wait for SEEKING FATE coming in September! And her new series looks fabulous - starting with ANALIESE RISING in January, 2019!

And Pintip Dunn also has two books coming out! I'm so excited for STAR CROSSED coming in October, and MALICE in January!

Then there's 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!

I loved REIGN OF THE FALLEN, so I can't wait to get my hands on SONG OF THE DEAD by Sarah Glenn Marsh!

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

Happy Reading, Writing, and Revising!
