#Pitchwars has turned into one of the greatest mentored writing contests ever. It includes chats, blogs, interviews, mentors, friendships, professional advice and more.

Congratulations to contest creator, Brenda Drake, and her team of mentors and assistants. This is truly a case of writers helping writers and it is fabulous for the writing community.

If you’re considering entering #Pitchwars, (you’ll need a completed novel by the August 2nd submission date) here are a few writing books to help you polish those pages, conquer tricky plot twists and add creativity to your characters and story.
