Description

From Slush Pile to Publishing Deal.

2017 is a big year for author Fiona Mitchell whose debut novel The Maid’s Room will be published by Hodder & Stoughton on 16th November. An award-winning writer, Fiona has worked as a journalist for many years and having signed a two-book deal with Hodder, is now hard at work on her second novel. In this class, she will talk about her own route from slush pile to publishing deal as well as giving you some of the tips she wished she’d known at the beginning. She will cover topics including turning your ideas into a book; writing the first draft; approaching literary agents; and resilience through rejection.

The Maid’s Room is available to pre-order at Amazon.

'This is where she sleeps. A cupboard. A bedroom. A windowless box.'

Sisters Dolly and Tala have never felt further from home. In the blistering heat of Singapore, they spend their days enabling ex-pats to have lives they could never afford for themselves.

Even though she has little freedom, Dolly can just about live with her job if it means she's able to support her beloved young daughter back in the Philippines. One day - if she's lucky - Dolly may even be able to go back and see her.

Tala, however, just can't keep her mouth shut about the restrictive, archaic rules maids are forced to abide by on pain of deportation. She risks everything to help her fellow maids, who have struggled to have their voices heard for far too long.

In a world where domestic workers are treated so poorly, The Maid's Room explores how women can come together to change each other's lives, and be the architects of their own futures.
