Oh my gosh, people! What a roller coaster the last two weeks (months??) have been. But The Emotional Wound Thesaurus has officially been released into the wild, launch week is done, and now Angela and I can safely collapse :). Let me just take one more opportunity to thank everyone who participated in our celebration, those of you who bought a copy of the book, and anyone who has sent us a kind word of encouragement about our work. It’s been a tiring week but also an uplifting and exciting one. We’re so grateful to all of you!
With all the craziness, it’s been a few months since we’ve been able to host a critique contest. I didn’t want to let another month go by without one, so in the spirit of getting things back to normal, its CRITIQUE TIME!
CONTEST IS 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!
