Why should your book get plucked out of an agent’s slush pile? What makes your story compelling enough for an agent to want to read it? To represent it? To make an editor want to acquire it?

In this webinar, you will learn HOW to make your story stand out from the rest and answer the question industry professionals ask with each submission they receive: Why THIS book?!

This workshop is for all writers of all genres and experience levels. The webinar will be recorded and will be available to watch for 30 days following the event. Registrants will be entered to win a query critique from Sera Rivers after the event. Registrants do not need to attend the live event to win.

What’s it like to crawl on your belly in complete darkness through a narrow passageway 150 feet below ground? What does the mouth of an active volcano look and smell like? The Internet makes it possible to research just about anything—but can also lead you down the rabbit hole of distraction. If you really want to know what your characters experience, you must live in their worlds. See what your characters see with your own eyes, feel what they feel, trace their steps as they journey to new lands. Find out how extreme research can strengthen your world building, plotting, and character development.
