About Eve Silver

National bestselling author Eve Silver writes for both adults and teens. She has been praised for her “edgy, steamy, action-packed” books, darkly sexy heroes and take-charge heroines.

Eve‘s work won the OLA Forest of Reading White Pine Award (2015), was shortlisted for the Monica Hughes Award for Science Fiction and Fantasy (2014), and was both an American Bookseller’s Association Best Book for Children and a Canadian Children’s Book Centre Best Books for Kids and Teens (2013). She has garnered starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Quill and Quire, two RT Book Reviews Reviewers’ Choice Awards, Library Journal’s Best Genre Fiction Award, and she was nominated for the Romance Writers of America® RITA® Award.

Eve lives with her husband, two sons, an energetic Airedale terrier and an exuberant border collie/shepherd. And a snake called Ragnar.

Morning

In the morning Eve will be leading a plotting workshop which addresses how to plot and outline, even for non-plotters! The morning workshop gives guidance on how to create a punchy synopsis, and will be useful for pansters and plotters alike. Eve will also be giving her popular 'publishing 101' talk, an overview of both traditional and self-publishing, how the industry has changed and the factors writers should consider in choosing which route to pursue.

Afternoon

In the afternoon Eve is leading a unique Live Action Blue Pencil. Participants have the opportunity to submit a 1-page query, synopsis or back cover blurb at least 1 week in advance of the workshop and Eve will go through the submissions with the group for invaluable pointers and discussion.
