Do you want to spend an intense three weeks with my editor? Yes, you do. She’s awesome. Trust me. And you can because she’s gearing up for another session of Before You Hit Send.
How good is this workshop? Angela and I have worked together for years and done many books together, but I still learned a ton when I took it last year. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re submitting books or you’re published or you’re a bestseller, if you can check your ego at the door and throw yourself into this workshop, I guarantee you will be a better writer at the end of it.
I’m giving away three registration fees for the 7/11-8/1 session of Before You Hit Send because it’s an amazing workshop and I’m very lucky to have Angela as my editor and I’d like to share the luck a little. How can you enter? Here in the comments, tell me what genre you’re working on. (Contemporary romance or thriller or science fiction or historical romance, for example.). That’s it.
I’ll draw three winners randomly at about 10am eastern on Monday, so everybody else will still have time to sign up. (And I’ll double-check for any in moderation before I draw.) Good luck!

I write sweet contemporary romances. Thanks, Shannon!
Hi Shannon and Angela,
I hope I win! This sounds great. I’m about 30,000 words into my first draft of a YA contemporary with romance and paranormal elements.
I’be just done a 50k/30d draft during May and first round revisions in june on a romantic suspense aimed at carina press and would love to add a fine tune with Angela James!
What a great opportunity!
I think the more you learn (and we never stop learning) the better at your craft/career you become.
I would love to be able to learn to improve my paranormal romance books even more. I’m still dreaming–‘Some day my ‘Print’ (or e-pub) will come.’ LOL
I enjoyed meeting Angela at a retreat recently and I know she’d be a great person to learn from.
Working on a YA paranormal romance… just starting to figure all of this out…
Hi. I’ve just completed my YA paranormal novel, Souls Entwined. I would love to win this. Thanks.
Will be checking this out, regardless of winning, but I am working on a YA WIP while I let the dust settle on a paranormal mystery.
I agree we can always learn and we’ll all read subsequent books of authors who have not continued and that’s sad. Currently, I’m writing a contemporary romance between two women at a university.
Okay, closing comments and going to draw winners!
