Sorry, the contest is now closed.
I'm so very happy to be hosting another contest with agent extraordinaire Natalie Fischer from the Bradford Literary Agency.
You can follow Natalie at her blog where she gives awesome writing advice and twitter. I was lucky enough to interview Natalie and you can check that out here.
The contest we are hosting is focused on revisions. A very important part of the writing process that not only needs to be concentrated on the first chapter, but throughout the entire manuscript.
Now off to the contest.
Please read and follow the rules. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
Your submission should contain:
1) Write a short pitch. No more than two or three sentences. We need to know what your book is about.
2) The second line of the very first paragraph of the 1st chapter.
3) The first 250 words of your second chapter.
4) Please include your title, the genre, and a way to contact you.
5) Post in the comment section.
What will happen next:
I will take the first 50 entries or the contest will end July 11th. Which ever comes first.
I will randomly select 15 entries and post them by July 13th for comments.
Comments will end by July 18th.
At that time you will be given a chance to revise your entry and repost it by July 25th.
Natalie will judge and then reward super awesome prizes cuz she is a super awesome agent.
If your entry is included within the ones randomly selected, then you must comment at least on three different entries.
If you won in my previous awesome contest with Gina Panettieri then please do not enter this contest. That does not include the honorable mentions--you can still enter.
You have to be a follower. You know...cuz it's my blog and I get to do that.
1st----A query critique and the first chapter.
2nd---A query critique and the first five pages
3rd---B and N gift card
Good luck everyone. Can't wait to see what ya got!!!!
