I am awestruck. Wow, what an incredible milestone!
Thanks for using the Bookshelf Muse as a resource for your writing & teaching! It is such an honor to serve so many great bloggers and to have such a wonderful & supportive following. I hope you continue to enjoy the thesaurus collections as I roll them out as well as the other posts on various aspects of writing.
I can’t think of any better way to celebrate this huge number than by holding a contest for my followers with some MASSIVE prizes!
Here’s what you can win:
— A FULL NOVEL Critique (WC Max 85,000) I will read your complete novel and offer wide-angle feedback that will help you build a stronger product, including a focus on Characters, Description, Character Arc, Plot, Dialogue, Proportion, Style, Stakes, Resolution & Voice. You’ll get 100% honesty from me on how to strengthen your book. Please note that this prize is not for first draft novels. Your work must be at the point where Grammar/Spelling/structure issues do not detract from the read. The more polished it is, the more you will benefit from my critique. All genres welcome except for Erotica.
–A Copy of Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.
— A Writer’s Gift Box Enjoy a fun box of goodies just in time for the holidays, filled with things a writer will enjoy!
— A First Chapter Inline Critique A line edit of your first chapter, with emphasis on your hook and building a strong compelling start to your book. All genres welcome except for Erotica. (I’ll give out 2 of these)
