The contest is now closed. Thanks for participating.
I will be posting each entry in the next couple of days. At that time, I would like for each participant to choose three posts to read and comment under. That way this will be a learning experience for all involved.
Please check back.
And again, thanks for entering.
It's your lucky day.
I'm super excited again to be hosting another contest for all my wonderful followers. Yep! Another one.
Judged by agent awesomeness, Gina Panettieri (follow her here), President of Talcott Notch Literary Service. I was lucky enough to interview Gina a few months ago. You can check that out here.
Okay, so off to the contest. Read the rules and follow them.
First--This contest is opened to U.S and Canada residents only. Your manuscript does NOT have to be complete to enter.
Oh, and by the way, you need to be a follower.
Second--Your pitch has to fit in a twitter-sized tweet. So, yanno, no more than 140 characters. And, yes, I will be counting.
Third--Please keep your entry to 250 words. Do not stop in the middle of a sentence, though. I mean, seriously, finish it.
Forth--Please post in the comment section as such:
Name: Ebyss Only you put in your name, not mine.
Email: Yanno, so I can get hold of you if you win.
Title and genre: BEST NOVEL EVER (put title in all caps as shown)--Fantasy
Pitch: Remember 140 characters only
1st 250 words: It was a dark and stormy night....yadda yadda yadda.
Now to the best part.......
Gina has been gracious enough to offer some fabtastic (my blog I get to make up words) prizes.
1st Place: Full critique of of manuscript or however much you have completed of WIP in a half-hour one on one session, AND signed copies of Nancy Holzner's DEADTOWN and HELLFORGED and Wayne Simmons' FLU and DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. These will be autographed to you.
Both of these wonderful authors are clients of Gina's. You can visit them here and here.
2nd Place: Critique of first three chapters or the first 50 pages and a synopsis. You also get a book.
3rd Place: Critique of first chapter.
4th Place: Critique of first page and pitch.
This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us writers. If I wasn't hosting this contest, I'd be entering. Hmm?? I wonder if I used a different name.....Um..... :)
This contest starts today, April 11th and ends April 17th of this year 2011.
Rules are subject to change. Cuz, it's my blog.
Have fun and let's see what you got!!!!!!
I can't promise extra entries or a definite win, but I'll do a happy dance if you'll share this contest with your friends on twitter and facebook.
Please note, if you entered the other contest, YOU CAN enter this one too.
