Inactive Instructor Beth Fred
Meet Beth Fred! That's me! I'm a full time teacher, constant keeper of the ELF and part time writer/blogger/writing instructor. I like my tea hot, my romance sweet, and my guys chivalrous. I'm a hybrid author working on an MFA in popular fiction and in 2012 I queried with a 50% full request rate. I snagged an agent and editor. While I later decided to go a different route, I still use that blurb process. Every. Single. Time.
The goal for my class is not just to help you write a good blurb, but to give you a process you can use repeatedly to help with plotting as well as query/blurb writing.
