100+ followers!! People, you rock!
To thank all my erudite and thoughtful followers for helping me reach that lovely 100-follower mark, I’m holding a CONTEST!
First (because it’s the most fun): PRIZES
Since Ink Spells talks about both reading and writing middle grade books, I’m going to have a READER’S prize and a WRITER’S prize.*
*note: I stole this idea from Beth Revis, who did it even better.
Prize #1: Critique from my sharp-penciled editor CJ at Omnific Publishing: CJ edited my debut novel Life, Liberty, and Pursuit and has graciously offered to critique the first 20 pages of your WIP.
Prize #2: Critique from me: I’m not an editor or an agent, but I have been told that my critiques are helpful, or at least better than a sharp stick in the eye. I’ll also critique the first 20 pages of your WIP.
Prize #3: A book of your choice.
To be clear, there are THREE prizes. You can specify that you want the WRITER’S prize, the READER’S prize, or BOTH if you want to be eligible for all three. There will be three winners (one for each prize).
1) You must be a follower (this is a contest celebrating followers, after all).
2) You must leave a review for a book (any book of your choice) either on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, or Goodreads. It can be a book you’ve previously reviewed, a book you’ve previously read, but review just for this contest, or a book you read and review just for this contest. However you do it, you must leave a link to your review in the comments below (so I know that you did it, and so that others can check out your review!). This is all in keeping with our pledge here at Ink Spells to help fellow authors by reading and reviewing.
3) You must specify if you want the WRITER’S prize, the READER’S prize, or BOTH.
CONTEST ENDS FRIDAY 7/16/2010.
Feel free to tweet, blog, facebook or what-not to spread the word! Thanks!
