July Workshop with Nazarea Andrews and Pitch Wars Mentor, E.M. Caines!

Welcome to the July Query & 1st Page Workshop with some of our PitchWars mentors. We selected many wonderful writers from a drawing held in June to participate in the workshop. Each mentor has graciously critiqued either a query or first page for two writers. The writers are anonymous and the titles/genres are hidden. Follow along all month to view the critiques. We welcome comments and further suggestions, but please keep them kind and respectful. Here are the next two mentors and their critiques … Nazarea Andrews Website | Twitter Nazarea is a YA writer. A self-professed geek. A mom (3 beautiful girls) and wife. A unabashed book addict. She likes chocolate and tequila, good times and laughter, weekends with family and times spent at the beach or the mountains. She’s a cynic with a romantic streak, sarcastic to a fault. She’s also the blog tour specialist at InkSlingerPR, and the founder of Writer’s Road. She’s represented by Michelle Johnson of Inklings Literary. Nazarea’s books … The World Without a Future Amazon She was born the day the world ended… Nurrin has lived her entire life with zombies—trapped behind walls meant to keep them safe.

Now all that matters is keeping Collin and Nurrin safe from what’s outside the walls of a Haven. But when Nurrin’s best friend picks up a contact infection, he agrees to get the medicine needed to save his life. Forced together, relying on each other in a strange Haven, zombies aren’t the most dangerous thing they’re facing. In their world, only one thing remains true: everything ends in blood. The Horde Without End Goodreads It was supposed to be over… Returning from Haven 18 was supposed to be the end. But nothing is ever easy—and in a world full of zombies, finding the missing is next to impossible. There are breadcrumbs. Tiny clues. But what are a few tiny clues in a world of the dead? Nurrin is desperate to find her brother, but that will mean trusting Finn O’Malley. A man shrouded in secrets, who kills as easily as breathing. And the more she learns about him, the more questions she has. But she has learned one thing—the zombies are changing. Adapting. And this time, the Haven walls won’t keep them out.   Nazarea’s critiques …  ...
