  2. I saw your comment on my blog. I couldn't reply back, so I am replying here. Yes, this will be the book. This project started as a way for me to heal through a lot of personal demons. I created a blog and have shared my words for a few years with others. I kept putting off writing the book, but now with your work shop I have an opportunity to maybe get it out there. Thanks for everything.

    1. I have goose bumps just thinking about hw amazing this book is going to be!

    2. Thanks. I have had a lot of my friends and writer friends tell me I need to get it out there, but I haven't actually sat down to format it. It'a about 23 chapters and I'm revising somethings and leaving some out which are too personal. I hope to catch an agent's eye during the workshop.

  3. I'd like to sign up. I write adult and YA-ish historical fiction. A number of people have suggested that the books I thought were more YA might be better-queried as adult, in spite of the young protagonists. I write only 20th century historical at the moment, though eventually I'm going to resurrect some 18th and 19th century characters, and explore other eras as well (Heian Japan, the High and Late Middle Ages, et al).

    1. At least I guess the story I'm writing would be considered Paranormal (but maybe it would be Fantasy). There are no vampires or traditional werewolves in it. But there are witches, witch hunters, and shapeshifters who can change shape because of a magic spell cast on their ancestor which is passed down through the bloodline. It's actually based off some local legends and stories.

  20. I would like to sign up for the workshops and anything pertaining to agents!

    My WIP is YA,a paranormal/historical mystery. Paranormal in the sense of psychic abilities, not vampires and werewolves and all that outdated stuff. I hope it's not too late.
