We are thrilled to share with you our newsletter for fiction writers...

w.i.p. (work in progress)

--advice and encouragement for fiction writers--

Yeah, I know--about the last thing any of us really needs is another email newsletter. It's one reason we haven't offered one before. We were determined not to do a newsletter until we found a way to make it something valuable and helpful to YOU.

I think we've found it. Remember those advice and etiquette columns that used to appear in newspapers (and still do)? Well, that's what w.i.p. (work in progress) is for fiction writers. You've got writing or publishing questions? Of course you do--we all do. As a part of the newsletter list, you can send in your questions and we'll send the reply from one of our published novelist-editors in the newsletter. Each edition of w.i.p. (work in progress) also includes writing tips or motivational ideas and even writing product reviews to help keep you energized about your own writing "work in progress." See a sample issue here.

I'm Ready, Let's Go!
