We will be taking a hiatus for December, opening again in January, 2017! So get those pages ready - we usually fill up in under a minute!
Happy writing - and revising!
November Guest Mentor: Nancy Ohlin
Nancy was born in Tokyo and divided her childhood between there and Ohio. She received a BA in English from the University of Chicago. She is the author of the YA novels CONSENT, BEAUTY, and ALWAYS, FOREVER (Simon Pulse). As a ghostwriter/collaborator, her credits include several New York Times-bestselling novels as well as nearly a hundred other books for children and teens. She lives in Ithaca, NY.
Bea has a secret. Actually, she has more than one. There’s her dream for the future that she can’t tell anyone—not her father and not even her best friend, Plum.
And now there’s Dane Rossi. Dane is hot, he shares Bea’s love of piano, and he believes in her.
He’s also Bea’s teacher.
When their passion for music crosses into passion for each other, Bea finds herself falling completely for Dane. She’s never felt so wanted, so understood, so known to her core. But the risk of discovery carries unexpected surprises that could shake Bea entirely. Bea must piece together what is and isn’t true about Dane, herself, and the most intense relationship she’s ever experienced in this absorbing novel.

November Guest Agent Mentor: Tracy Marchini
After four years as a Literary Agents Assistant at Curtis Brown, Tracy Marchini left to pursue her own editorial business and to earn her MFA in Writing for Children from Simmons College. Her editorial clients have gone on to secure representation, sell books to traditional publishers, win awards and become bestsellers in the UK. She’s looking forward to being able to work with her BookEnds clients throughout their careers and to (hopefully!) see them grow as authors in the same way.
Tracy is looking for picture book, middle grade and young adult manuscripts across most genres, including contemporary, mysteries, thrillers, magical realism, historical fiction, and non-fiction. She is not a good fit for YA horror, true crime, hard sci-fi, or high fantasy. At this time, she is not looking for board books or early chapter books.
