Edited: Added another option to the Grand Prize: a $20 dollar Amazon card OR a 100 page crit.
This month celebrates not only 100 followers here on the blog, but also the start of my querying and entering online writing contests. Thank you for encouraging me to push send, and for being with me on the journey.
Right now my life feels like this and I'm enjoying the ups and even the downs of the ride:
So, what can my lovely readers win?
1. I've always thought that the 100th followers should get a prize. So for Kim, who blogs at Confessions of a Bibliophile and is nearing 100 followers herself, I'm giving a 1st chapter critique (or 1st page and query crit. if preferred).
2. Because I've seen the need for new eyes on queries, I'm giving away 3 query critiques.
3. And because I can't live without reading (seriously guys, I've considered learning to read Braille in case I lose my eye sight) one winner will receive their choice of my favorite 2012 reads: The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green; Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater; Icefall by Matthew Kirby; or Insurgent by Veronica Roth.
4. The grand prize winner will receive a 100 page critique from me (Yes, this means when I reach 200 followers I'll be giving away a 200 page critique!) OR (edited to add) a 20 dollar Amazon gift card-winner may choose.
