Critiques 4 U

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!

CONTEST CLOSED

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.

Two caveats:

▪    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!

Just finished the latest round of edits on my unpublished 84,000 word adult crime manuscript. Pitch and query are ready. Synopsis was gut-wrenching but is now ready. A critique of my first page would be superb!

Thanks for the opportunity! I spent the majority of this summer with a broken hand but still edited and revised my adult PNR one finger at a time. This would be the highlight of my summer if I win!

I have a YA #invoices fantasy novel. I have just started querying (as in sent the first one last night), but I’m not certain my first page is as strong as it could be yet, just as good as I know how to get it by myself.

Yes, please! It’s always a good idea to have feedback.
