GL's I <3 Writing Workshops give GL girls (that's y-o-u!) the exclusive chance to join your favorite authors for a live, one-on-one chat. You can ask questions and get immediate answers on what it's like to be a writer, tips for penning your own stories and the secrets behind your fave novels.
Next up? This Thursday, October 24, we're hosting our "Stories That Make Us Shiver" Writing Workshop (just in time for Halloween!). We've got a panel of three spooktacular storytellers who will share all the dirty details on writing horror, thrillers and suspense.
How's it work?
It's super simple. Just log onto facebook.com/girlslife on Thursday, October 24 from 6-7pm EST and look for the "Post your Qs here!" graphics on our wall--there will be one for each author. Just post your questions to each of our experts in their chat threads, then sit back and check out all the other Q&As while ya wait for yours to be answered.
What will the Writing Workshop cover?
This is your Writing Workshop and you'll be leading it, so ask whatever you want to know about writing horror! These three amazing authors can give you tips on anything. Some ideas: How do you put together a story outline? What are some tips for building suspense? How do you beat writer's block? Where can you find spine-tingling inspiration? How can I make my writing feel more chilling?
How do I win?
Also easy. Every girl who joins in the chat will automatically be entered to win a copy of all three featured horror books…plus, they'll be signed by the authors!

Another Little Piece is Kate Karyus Quinn's haunting debut novel. On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming.
