Amazing Giveaways

I've found out about some awesome contests going on right now, and I couldn't wait to spread the word.

Dear Editor is holding a giveaway. The prize: a free YA/MG edit. How cool is that? Your manuscript must be Young Adult or Middle Grade fiction and complete. It must not exceed 85,000 words. The deadline is midnight, April 14, PST. (hurry!)

Sarah With a Chance is giving away a critique of the first 30-40 pages of your manuscript by Suzie Townsend; query letter critiques by Kathleen Ortiz, Joanna Stampfel-Volpe, and Colleen Lindsay; a lunch date with Suzie Townsend and Janet Reid; and many other fabulous prizes. Wow! Her contest ends April 25 at 11:59pm EST and winners will be announced April 30.

Plus, be sure to check out all the great contests over on my sidebar, including the Barnes & Noble or Borders gift card giveaway by yours truly. So what are you waiting for? Get entering!

Hi

Awww you're a star!!!

I'm tempted with the 30-40 page critique seeing as I'm re-writing from scratch anyway... hmmmm!!!

Will have a look at the link - thanks for this!

Take care

Thanks, Susan! I've never heard of Dear Editor, but I'm subscribing now. Unfortunately, the only novel I'd consider submitting is too long, but maybe we'll get another chance.

Oh thanks, Susan. I knew of the second one but not the first. *runs off to check it out*

You found me through Karen G, and now happily I've found you. I go into Karen's two blogs every day, so when you post on either one, I'll find you. I'm signing up here as a follower because I want to keep in touch with you. We have some interests in common. Studying the Bible, for one, and YA for another. Next to memoir, YA is my favorite genre. I'm reading one right now called Over a Thousand Hills I Walk with You by Hanna Jansen; I've never written a book review, but I'm going to write one on this book and post it on my blog sometime this week. I'm also trying to outline a YA novel while trying to promote my book In the Mirror that is supposed to come out this summer. And thanks for posting info on these contests. This is a great service to provide for your followers.
