The Bookshelf has received 30,000 hits! It’s hard to believe that our little blog is chugging along like this, and that it’s helping so many dedicated writers. 30,000 hits is nothing to sneeze at, so we feel the need to rejoice. Coming as this milestone does so close to Thanksgiving (the 27th, for us Americans), what better way to celebrate than with a contest we like to call…
In the comments section, post your guess as to the exact weight (pounds and ounces) of the turkey Becca will be cooking for the fam. Angela will keep an eye on things, since she’s not the one roasting a–ack! Almost gave away the answer there. Anyway, she’ll let you know if the correct weight is higher or lower than the previous guesses, after which point everyone is free to guess again. When the exact weight is given, the winner will be crowned (have to do something with the leftover bones, after all).
The prize? The winner will get a Critique Workshop on the query letter of your choice, which will be critiqued via email by Angela and Becca. In our experience, it takes a bit of back-and-forth to perfect the dreaded query; we’re dedicated to doing what it takes to get that letter just right. We’ll keep at it until you’re happy with the results!
Gobble, gobble, everyone!
