Writer friends, take note:
There is a writer named Sarah Wylie. Her first novel ALL THESE LIVES has been sold by Suzie Townsend and will be published in 2012. Do you not love this title?
Sarah must be a very kind-hearted, generous, and well-connected woman because to celebrate her book deal she has launched an incredible contest. Here are the deets:
What To Do: Fill out the contest form on her blog. The winners will be chosen at random.
What Do You Win: (I hope you are sitting down, with smelling salts in hand)
1 Lucky Winner will receive a critique of their first 30-40 pages by the fabulous Suzie Townsend + a pack of Twizzlers + a copy of Hex Hall
3 Lucky Winners will receive a query letter critique by one of these three agent extraordinaires: Kathleen Ortiz, Joanna Stampfel-Volpe, or Colleen Lindsay (One agent will be randomly assigned to each winner.)
1 Winner will receive a writer's survival guide consisting of Twizzlers, a copy of Silver Phoenix and When You Reach Me, and a cute notebook and pen.
1 Lucky winner will score a lunch date with THE Janet Reid and THE Suzie Townsend. Um, yeah, that's not a typo. (I'm tempted to enter myself. Would it be so wrong?) Unfortunately, this is not a free trip to NYC. BUT if you live in the NYC area, or whenever you're visiting NYC? You. Janet. Suzie. LUNCH.
Umm, yeah. Did your brain just explode all over your computer screen? That happened to me about five minutes ago. Writing is messy business.
So what are you waiting for??? Go to her blog RIGHT NOW and enter this contest.
And since this is all about good karma, need I remind you that it would behoove you to check out her forthcoming novel as well? It's about TWINS so you know it's going to be awesome.
Editor's Note: I feel the need to state that the prize descriptions were taken directly from Sarah's blog. Didn't want to take credit for her witty write-ups.
