CRITIQUES 4 U!

Welp, Angela and I are in full-blown, a-million-balls-in-the-air, pre-publication madness right now. It’s crazy, but we love it because it means that by this time next week, The Occupation Thesaurus will be available at all our regular distributors :). In case you were looking for news on that, you can find some information about the book here.

Also, we’re doing something a little wacky for this launch (shocking, I know) that will allow YOU to put US in the Hot Seat and ask us whatever questions you want about our jobs, working together, etc. If you would like to attend this Zoom event or submit questions for us to answer, check out this post.

(The Hot Seat is happening Thursday, July 16th, at 8 PM EST. We will have a recording I hope, so even if you can’t make it live, you can watch after the fact!)

And now, back to this month’s critique contest!

CONTEST IS CLOSED :). SEE YOU NEXT MONTH.

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.

CRITIQUES 4 U!

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 really like a review of my first page. I’m writing an urban fantasy/romance/rock fiction. I know, weird! Anyway, I’d love for someone to take a look!

Love your work and the ‘Emotion Thesaurus’ sits on my writing desk, dog-eared and well loved. I have a polished middle grade chapter book I am itching to submit and a first page critique would be most helpful. Good luck with your book launch!

I have a really good or really bad example for you from my memoir. I’m too close, I can’t tell anymore.

I would really appreciate the critique and would love it if others learned from it — good or bad.

Thank you.

Congratulations on the new launch! This will be another indispensable addition to my writer’s toolbox. I love all of your thesauruses.

I have written more versions of my first page than I can count! Having your eyes on it would be invaluable to me. Thanks for always being so helpful.
