My Newest Blog post is beneath this. Blogger is giving me a hard time today. For the Lucky 7 Meme post please scroll below.
It was brought to my attention that this bloghop is scheduled at the same time as another. Oops. And I thought I did my research. Stay tuned for the new dates. If you know of any upcoming bloghops please note them in the comment section so we can schedule around them. Thank you!!!!!
I am so excited! Me along with the lovely Cortney Pearson are having our first Bloghop!!! The Dust It Off Bloghop will be three days, the dates are to be announced. I'm trying to contain my excitement and write a coherent post, so here it goes.
We've all had those manuscripts that we poured our heart into, fell in love with the characters and still think of them at random, but unfortunately had to shelf. Now it's time for a little spring cleaning. Take out those manuscripts and Dust It Off!
The first day, we want you to post a 1-2 sentence pitch (Great way to practice pitches) about the shelved WIP.
The second day, post your favorite excerpt (300-350 words)
The third day, post what you learned from this WIP. You become a stronger, more rounded writer which each manuscript and we want to know what this particular work taught you.
You can participate in all three and we hope you do, but you don't have to. We know you have lives away from the computer. If you can great. If not we'd be happy with anything you can give us :)
A bloghop would not be complete without prizes and for this bloghop there will be 6! Yes 6 prizes. Cortney and I will each pick a winner from each day.
Day 1 prize:
A book. Who doesn't like a free book?
Cortney's Book: Ditched by Robin Mellom (I'm already jealous of the winner. I am dying to read it)
My book: Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Andersen
Day 2 prize:
A query critique
Day 3 prize:
A FULL MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE!!! (And of course it is the manuscript of your choice. It doesn't have to be for the shelved WIP. This goes for the query as well.)
We'd love for you to follow us. Of course it is not a requirement, but I always follow back ;) Sign up below and please spread the word :) (And this is my first time doing the linky thing. If you have any problems please let me know!)
I can't wait!!!!
