My most recent novel Beltrunner--and one which was workshopped on OWW–was published in February of this year by EDGE Publishing.” You can learn more about Sean’s novel here.
Marianne Kirby wrote to tell us: “Back in 2013, I found the Online Writing Workshop and posted the first chapter of my novel in progress (after reviewing some other submissions, of course). My submission was an Editor’s Choice for horror. I took the four reviews total I received and headed into revisions.Then I finished those revisions in 2014 when I was an Amtrak Residency fellow. And THEN my agent loved my novel. Which was followed by the quick sale of my novel.
And now – November 21st – my novel Dust Bath Revival is being published by Curiosity Quills, a small publishing house with whom I’m really enjoyed working. So that’s another success story! As I work on other projects (and the sequel to this upcoming release), I look forward to posting them for feedback. And I look forward to reviewing other submissions, too!”
