Welp, it’s August. Some of us are crying because the summer’s over. Some of us are celebrating because the summer’s over. We northerners are, frankly, trying to ignore all the back-to-school posts because, jeez, we just got out of school.
Whatever situation you’re in, I hope you’re enjoying the moments and finding that precarious balance between work and personal life. Personally, I’m headed to Colorado with the family in a few weeks, and I needed to squeeze in some critiques this month, so today’s the big day :).
CRITIQUES 4 U!
If you’re working on a first page (in any genre except erotica) and would like some objective feedback, please leave a comment. Any comment :). As long as the email address associated with your WordPress account is up-to-date, I’ll be able to contact you if your first page is chosen. Just please know that if I’m unable to get in touch with you through that address, you’ll have to forfeit your win.
▪ 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, let me ask that you plan on entering the next contest, once any necessary tweaking has been taken care of.
▪ I’d like to be able to use portions of winning submissions as illustrations in an upcoming presentation I’m creating on first pages. By entering the Critiques 4 U contest, you’ll be granting permission for me to use small writing samples only (no author names or book titles).
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!
