Register for my Writers Digest webinar

If you’re writing a YA novel, or just thinking about writing one, I encourage you to come to my Writers Digest webinar, What All Agents Want in a Great YA Novel.

The webinar will be live on Tuesday, July 29 at 1 PM Eastern/10 Pacific. The great thing about these Writers Digest webinars is that even if you can’t attend in person, you can still get all the benefits of attending as long as you register. All registrants will receive a link to a recording of the session, answers to any of the questions not covered in the live Q&A at the end of the webinar, and a 500-word critique of their YA novel.

More details are available at the registration link. I hope to see you there!


Writer’s Digest Novel Writing Conference

If you’re in California (or feel like traveling) and want to learn pretty much everything there is to learn about how to improve your novel, come to the Writer’s Digest Novel Writing Conference from August 15-17. There will be some very talented teachers and authors there, including Jonathan Maberry, Deborah Halverson, and Philip Athans, whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with at other WD online events.

I’ll be participating on the Ask the Agent panel, taking pitches, and leading a workshop called “Crafting the Bulletproof Query Letter,” where I’ll share all the secrets of what elements of a query letter get you noticed (in a good way).

Journalist Porter Anderson is offering a discount on registration with code “PORTER.”

Find me there in a green-and-pink print dress.
