And the next contest is kind of like a Christmas miracle and heaven all mixed up in one and baked into the most amazing giveaway treat since...well....forever. Especially for writers! It is hosted by Emelia Plater, a teen YA author (how cool is that?!) who has a blog called Punk Writer Kid. I copied the following from her blog:
~ A 20-page partial critique from agent Suzie Townsend!
~ Also (because this gal is a goddess), a query critique from Suzie!
~ A $50 gift card to Barnes & Noble, because let's face it: take that thing to the cafe, and it can buy coffee.
Getting annoyed yet?
~ A copy of Paranormalcy by Kiersten White - the first 70 pages of which promise incredibility! Evie's character kicks ass.
~ A preorder of The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney, out in November for a great fall read.
~ A signed copy of The Duff by Kody Keplinger, out September 7th! GO KODY!
~ A fancay custom blog makeover (Not to say your blog is existent or ugly. This prize is totally optional. I won't go tell your blog to lose weight, unless you want me to, or - being quiet)
Last one, I swear.
~ A custom drawing of your character or fave fictional character
~ A mega-bag of Sour Brite gummy worms to celebrate the eye-burning colors of this new layout
~ And finally, a "Keep Calm And ___ On" poster of your choice from The Keep Calm Shop!
All that loot goes to YOU if you win. One other lucky person will also win a query critique from Meredith Barnes, agent assistant to Janet Reid!
*Drools* Oh my goodness. Do I even have to tell you how incredible that is??? Enter here, quickly, quickly!
NOW, for my contest.
I am planning to have a giveaway once I reach 25 followers. It is going to be great. All that I need for you to do is follow me on Google Connect (that Loyal Subjects section on my blog) and I will give you the details and form for my contest once I reach that goal. Tell your friends, your neighbors, your enemies to join my blog and we'll get their faster! Who knows, in a month you could have some pretty cool swag in your mailbox.
My giveaway will be smaller than the ones mentioned but will have FANTABULOUS prizes. I've already begun collecting some of the things that will be included in the prize.
Until the next review (or contest),
