Hey there!

This month, we're exploring prologues, both in our blog and with our Back to Basics mini-course. Prologues are a hot-button topic: agents and publishers won't touch them but writers don't want to live without them. We'll look at why to help you make an informed decision about prologues.

Read Opening a Window to Your Story on our blog.

All WW functions are delayed while I'm on bereavement.
