#SparkNA starts April 6

If you follow me on Twitter, you’re going to see me use the hashtag #SparkNA. That’s because my new online class, this time sponsored by Anvil’s Spark Books imprint, is starting on Monday.

So far there are 70 participants in the class, and they’ve signed up to write a New Adult Contemporary novella and submit their draft by June 6. What they will get (apart from the satisfaction of finishing a book?) is a possible book deal with Spark.

It’s going to be exciting to see what we can do to expand and diversify the portfolio of NA by Filipino authors.

If you’re all, “huh New Adult by Filipino authors, what’s that?” go here for a  taste:
