  • Writing picture books (every three weeks on Wednesdays)
  • Writing middle grade and young adult novels (every three weeks on Fridays)
  • Jumpstart Mondays (writing prompts and exercises to get you moving every Monday)
  • Other pertinent news

Also, all subscribers will receive a monthly “Marketing News You Can Use” e-mail with contests, who’s looking for manuscripts, agent spotlight and more on the first Thursday of every month.

Loyal subscribers receive gifts at different intervals. Stick around and receive some great tools and special items created just for you.

I’m also working on some “door” prizes as I reach different subscriber milestones–things like:

  • autographed books
  • free consult
  • query, synopsis and manuscript critiques from me and/or others. I’m planning to rope in an editor or agent to critique when I reach 500-1000 subscribers, but I have a long way to go for that so…

Encourage your friends to subscribe!


  1. Denise, I learned so much from you at the SCBWI Colorado conference in September. You inspired me to write my first children’s book, which is currently on agent submission. Cheers to the new website and newsletter. I can’t wait to get the Blab in my inbox! :0)

    • Oh wow! I’m so happy to hear that. I’m getting goosebumps of joy just reading your comment. Congratulations on completing your book and getting it out there! And thanks for signing up for the Blab :-).

  2. Great website Denise!
