Hey, everyone! We’re back after a bit of a slow blogging month for the second-half of May, and also a bit of a slow reading month for me (Sarena). Let’s see what we posted on our blog!
What We Did
We actually did post quite a bit this month, thanks to our Editing 101 series, and this month we also launched something super special: our CRITIQUE SERVICES! We’ve already edited some great pages and we hope you might reach out to us if you’re working on a YA or MG manuscript!
We also attended the Raincoast Books event earlier in the month. Raincoast is a book distributor in Vancouver, BC that distributes books across Canada! We met up with some other cool bloggers to discuss their fall releases!
Here are the ARCs we got from the event:
