0 Thank You to the Mentors and Participants of January 1st 5 Pages Workshop!

Our 1st 5 Pages January Workshop has come to an end. We had such a great group of talented and supportive writers. And we were all so impressed with their revisions! A huge thanks to our fabulous guest mentors, author Sharon Cameron and agent Laura Crockett! And as always, a big thanks to our wonderful permanent mentors, who volunteer their time each month!

If you were one of the many who did not get into the January workshop, remember the February workshop opens on Saturday, February 6! So get those pages ready - we usually fill up in under a minute!

January Guest Mentor –  SHARON CAMERON

She was awarded the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators' Sue Alexander Award for Most Promising New Work for The Dark Unwinding, which was her debut novel.

History has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a single, red-tipped rook feather left in their place. The mysterious Red Rook is the savior of the innocent, and a criminal in the eyes of the government.

Meanwhile, in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy’s arranged marriage to the wealthy RenĂ© Hasard is the last chance to save her family from financial ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to the doors of Bellamy House, Sophia discovers that her fiancĂ© is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she.

Who needs a wedding ring when you can pick up a sword?
