GIVEAWAY!

Hey! I recently got to 500 followers on my author account on Twitter, which means YOU WIN!

The prize?

2 parts.

The bonus prize is me critiquing your query! Why is this cool? I know firsthand how frustrating queries can be to write. A fresh pair of eyes can be just the thing to hone the main weapon in your arsenal of hooking an agent's attention via slush pile. A solid query can be the difference between an agent moving to read your pages, or moving on to the next submission.

Am I qualified? Well, I've written a few, critiqued a few more, AND one time, I got to YES on QUERY SHARK! It took me an embarrassing amount of revisions because I have no objectivity with my own writing. I'm WAY better with other writers' work.

THE TOP PRIZE!

My awesome agent, Marisa Cleveland has agreed to critique the first chapter of the winner's MS!!!!

How can you win?

Simply comment on THIS blog post with your twitter, or email address (whichever you feel comfortable with sharing).

You MUST be a follower on Twitter to qualify for this contest. I WILL be checking. 

This prize IS transferable: If you want to enter to win for a friend, feel free. But please, only ONE COMMENT per person to keep it fair.

Any questions, contact me via my Twitter so as to keep the comment section free for the entries!

Contest is open NOW, and I will close it on Tuesday night. Winner will be announced on Wednesday. Early because I'm impatient!


Good luck!!

Winner is @MelissaMenten!!!!!!!! Congrats!
