Happy National Novel Writing Month! It's the perfect time to challenge yourself with daily word counts and milestones! This month's ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY issue of the Write for Harlequin newsletter is the ultimate toolkit of advice and inspiration to help you finish that Happily-Ever-After.
Our Ask an Editor Anything webinar was a HUGE success with over 400 registrants and over 100 questions. While we couldn't get to every question in the one-hour session, we plan to answer remaining questions in the Write for Harlequin blog in the coming weeks and months.
As you hit your writing goals throughout November, it's a good idea to make sure you are well versed on what is needed for a strong submission. Check out this blog post on how to submit to Harlequin in three easy steps! Read more here.
