I feel like celebrating and giving away stuff--and I'm posting earlier than Wednesday to give you more time to win! What am I celebrating? Well, I'm sure I can think of something. How about:
1. I passed my 100th blog post. This is the 103rd post.
2. I have 350 blog followers. Okay, 349, but that's close enough, right? I didn't celebrate 300, so consider this part of that.
3. I'm making good progress on more revisions for my agented novel, SHAPERS. And I never properly celebrated with you all when Kelly Sonnack became my agent in April.
4. I have 1000 followers on Twitter. Woo!
What am I giving away? How about:
1. TWO thorough but kind chapter critiques from me. 20-page limit.
2. TWO YA books. Hardcopy editions of ENTWINED and DIVERGENT.
HOW TO ENTER: Easy to do
1. Be a follower of this blog.
2. Leave a comment below or email me at artzicarol [at] gmail [dot] com. If you just want to comment and NOT enter, please say so.
3. Enter by next Tuesday, September 13, at midnight PST.
4. FOUR random winners will be chosen and announced Wednesday, September 14.
5. Extra entries (leave links) for spreading the word on Twitter, Facebook, your blog, etc.
[Sorry, the winning/shipping of the books are only offered to US and Canadian blogger buddies, BUT the critiques are open internationally.]
Have you read DIVERGENT yet? How about ENTWINED?
Do you have a chapter of a manuscript ready to be critiqued, to enter for this?
(No worries if not--if you win, I'll take a rain check for whenever you DO finish.)
