Critiques 4 U

CONTEST CLOSED

Welp, Angela’s away on a well-deserved vacation, which means I’m getting all kinds of things done. Which means it’s time for a critique contest!

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/comment profile 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 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).

I typically pick winners using a random number generator, but I’ve decided to do things differently this time. ‘Cause I’m mixxy like that ;). Just be sure to enter by the time the contest ends tomorrow morning, and we’ll see what happens.

We run this contest on a monthly basis, so if you’d like to be notified when the next opportunity comes around, consider subscribing to our blog (see the left-hand sidebar).

Best of luck!

I just got a notice of a duplicate comment, which is not true. I hope you get this.
