It's Almost Over!

It's the last day of the YAB Spring Writing Bootcamp 2016! We loved every minute of it!

It's the last day of the YAB Spring Writing Bootcamp 2016! We loved every minute of it!

It’s officially summer, and our YAB Spring Writing Bootcamp has come to a close. But that doesn’t mean all the fun is over! We’re gearing up for an amazing summer that will keep you motivated, allow you to continue to share in on the fun with our Pirates, and maybe even win a prize (because we always have prizes, right?)!

First, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in May and June for the 2016 version of our popular Spring Writing Bootcamp!  You kept us on our toes with all of your amazing word sprints, engaging participation on Twitter and Facebook, and fab photos on Instagram! There were more than 200 Bootcamp participants this time (WOW!), and we hope each and every one of you met some goals and exceeded all of your spring expectations. We sure did!

During bootcamp, we heard from those of you who were just starting a book, many who were knee-deep in the first draft, and many more who were revising the heck out of something. It was amazing to see the support you gave each other throughout. Way to go! And we must congratulate the two Buccaneers who released books during bootcamp –Erin L. Schneider, and Kathryn Holmes!

We talked a lot about endurance, balance, strength, and flexibility when writing, and you shared many of your stories with us about how difficult this process can be. Don’t worry, we’re right with you there. It takes effort and support to keep going, and we are truly blessed to have such a wonderful and creative community of writers we can call our friends…and shipmates. Ahoy, Mateys!

Don’t worry, we’re not done yet. There is much more to come in July, so stay tuned. And you still have time to enter to win one of 5 copies of Kathryn Holmes’  HOW IT FEELS TO FLY. Just send us an email to, or use the Rafflecopter form to enter.

Thanks once again for writing with us this Spring. You are an inspiration to all of us!
