Critiques 4 U!

You guys! Guess who’s the birthday girl? ANGELA ACKERMAN! Even on her special day, she is a gift to me and to so many of you, I know. So if you see her around social media, please wish her a happy day 🙂

Welp, we’re almost there, folks. Christmas is nearly upon us. Hopefully you’ve scheduled some time in the holiday craziness for family traditions, quiet moments, or whatever makes you happy this time of year. Angela and I will be taking our regular blog break next week, so it’s a good time for me to stock up on reading material. And you know what that means :).

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!
