Welcome to the latest video in our “Helping Fellow Authors in the Age of COVID-19″ (HFAAC) series! Today we’re profiling Brooke Fossey and her debut novel, THE BIG FINISH!
WE LOVE that this book is about the elderly in such a positive way, especially at this time in our world’s history. And we’re so appreciative of Brooke’s tips for imbuing each character with their personal quirks. Thank you, Brooke!
Please help spread the word for Brooke by directing folks to this video, to her website , or to any book online book retailer.
Comments are open for questions and a show of community support! And though we have included a longer book preview below that includes a buy link to Amazon, this is an ideal time to wholeheartedly support functioning indie outlets. Brooke actually names several at the end of her video, and so we heartily recommend visiting them to purchase Brooke’s book.
Writer Unboxed began as a collaboration between Therese Walsh  and Kathleen Bolton  in 2006. Since then the site has grown to include ~50 regular contributors--including bestselling authors and industry leaders--and frequent guests.
In 2014, the first Writer Unboxed UnConference (part UNtraditional conference, part intensive craft event, part networking affair)  was held in Salem, MA. Learn more about our 2019 event, ESCAPE TO WuNDERLAND, on Eventbrite. 
In 2016, the Writer Unboxed team published a book with Writer's Digest. AUTHOR IN PROGRESS: A No-Holds-Barred Guide to What It Really Takes to Get Published  has been well-received by readers who seek help in overcoming the hurdles faced at every step of the novel-writing process--from setting goals, researching, and drafting to giving and receiving critiques, polishing prose, and seeking publication. James Scott Bell has said of the guide, "Nourishment for the writer's soul and motivation for the writer's heart."
