50 Followers GIVEAWAY!

Many thanks to the many new followers who have stopped by lately and added their shiny little faces to my blogroll. I have now reached FIFTY FOLLOWERS, so it's time to celebrate!

What you'll get from me: a FREE, PRIVATE critique of the first chapter of a middle grade or young adult novel, up to 15 pages (double-spaced, 12 point). I can critique adult fiction if you'd like, but I'm most familiar with MG or YA. Think of it as a freebie alpha or beta read! I do thorough line-by-line critiques, including mentioning the positives of your writing along with constructive suggestions.

To enter, do 3 simple things:
1. Become a follower if you're not one already
2. Leave a comment on THIS POST so I know you want to enter
3. Enter by Tuesday, December 7, 2010 by midnight PST.

One winner will be chosen randomly and announced next Wednesday morning PST, December 8, 2010. When I reach 100 followers, I'll have an even BIGGER giveaway celebration, with choices of prizes and more than one winner!

Thanks again, everyone.

PS: This Saturday, December 4, if any of you are in the neighborhood of Roseburg, Oregon, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Douglas County Library, I will be joining other authors at the Douglas County Book Author Fair (click for info) and selling/signing copies of my young adult novel, Junction 2020: The Portal. Come by and say hi!

  11. Hi all, thanks for your support and enthusiasm thus far. I've altered the blog post to include other kinds of writing other than MG or YA, in response to Terri's comment. I'm just more familiar with MG/YA, but if you're willing, then I am. :)

  15. Hi Carol,

    Thanks for popping in again. I do have the versatile blogger award courtesy of the lovely Katherine Winn and Talie @theladydothscribe. I received the honor in September, but I'm glad to hear you think I'm versatile. Much nicer name than rambling.
