Today is 1-11-11. Does that sound lucky or what?
Last fall when I was plotting the release of True Believers I asked what sort of prizes people would like to see in contests. An overwhelming number of you asked for a manuscript critique from yours truly.
From now until January 26, I am running a Follower Contest. Follow me on this blog or Facebook and be entered for a chance to win either a cool t-shirt or a manuscript critique (your choice of prize).
Add yourself to my friend or follower list, then fill out this form telling me so. You can enter multiple times if you tweet or mention this contest (with this link) on Facebook or your blog.
The form is also on the Contest page at the top of this blog.
Already following me? You will earn double points when you enter--just because I think you're special. :o)
Chosen by random drawing. But the more you enter, the better your chances.
Your choice of t-shirt or critique.
If you choose the critique, your manuscript must be as polished as you can get it. I will not correct grammar, but I will review the story for character, plot, conflict, and world building.
Manuscript should be no more than 90k, but I'll cut you some slack if it goes over. I will read partials if you insist, but that will be in lieu of a full manuscript review.
Am I qualified to critique your manuscript?
Yup. I've done so much reviewing there's a price on my head in seven solar systems. They'll never catch me alive.
Caveat: I will not color my review in rainbows. I will not feed your ego with platitudes and pom poms. But I will give you an honest assessment as a reader and an editor.
This contest will run for two weeks. The winner will be announced Thursday, 1-27-11. Now, go tell your friends. I want to meet new people!
