Critiques 4 U!

This weekend was an absolute blast as I shared some character building tips with a fine bunch of romance writers in Dallas. I’ve been working on this presentation for a while, and now that it’s done, I’m looking forward to getting back to work on the front matter for our next thesaurus book on Emotional Wounds. (Angela’s already done with her half, the overachiever.) People have been asking when this book, which will feature over 100 traumatic events that can impact who your character is in your current story, will be available, and the answer is that we’re hoping to publish it sometime this fall.

If you’re curious about this next book of ours and would like to know when it becomes available, consider signing up for our New Publications newsletter, which we only activate in the months leading up to a new release. By signing up, you’ll receive just a few emails to keep you informed of when the next book will be published so you won’t miss out.

A sampling of the Emotional Wound entries available at One Stop For Writers

In addition, you can get a sneak peak by checking out our partial list of wound entries via the Emotional Wound Thesaurus at One Stop For Writers. (And snag a discount for 25% off your first invoice here.) Registered users can also access a handy tutorial on emotional wounds that explains these traumatic events, resulting flaws, false beliefs that may develop, and more.

I know, I know. Fall seems like too long to wait when you’re looking forward to something. But it’s ok, because you can enter TODAY to win another nifty prize—a critique of one of your first pages. That’s right! It’s time for

CRITIQUES 4 U!

CONTEST CLOSED!

If you’re working on a first page and would like some objective feedback, please leave a comment that includes: 

1) your email address. Some of you have expressed concern about making your email address public; if you’re sure that the email address associated with your WordPress account is correct, you don’t have to include it here. But if you do win and I’m unable to contact you through that email address, I’ll have to choose an alternate winner.

2) your story’s genre (no erotica, please)

Also, please be sure your first page is ready to go so I can critique it before next month’s contest rolls around. If it needs some work and you won’t be able to get it to me right away, I’d like to ask that you plan on entering the next contest, once any necessary tweaking has been taken care of. 🙂

~ONLY ENTRIES THAT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED~

Three commenters’ names will be randomly drawn and posted tomorrow. If you win, you can email me your first page and I’ll offer my feedback. Best of luck!
