Critiques 4 U

Contest is closed! See you next month.

Happy New Year! We hope that your holidays were everything you expected them to be—a relaxing and peaceful foray into what is to come or a spectacularly fabulous goodbye to the past. Angela and I are jumping with both feet (as we tend to do) into 2020 and are excited about the year ahead. We hope you are, too. And I can’t think of a better way to kick things off than with some free critiques!

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).

Three commenters’ names will be randomly drawn and posted tomorrow morning. If you win, you can email me your first page and I’ll offer my feedback. 

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’d love a critique. I’m struggling to start a book with multiple characters that all meet up in the first chapter.

Finally entering this after months & months! I’m in the second stage of revisions right now, so my first page isn’t perfect, but a critique on the big picture elements (like characterization) would be great! *fingers crossed*
