CONTEST!!!! WHOO-HOO!


OK, I know I said that I needed a break, but this contest was just SCREAMING to be announced. I missed out on acknowledging my 100 followers due to being deeply immersed in the A-Z April Challenge. But challenge no more, now it's contest time.

When I reach the marvelous 200 followers mark, I shall draw the winners. If I don't get to 200 before the end of May, I will draw the winner on May 31st.

Three lucky winners will receive the following:

First place:
Free CRITIQUE and EDIT of your FIRST CHAPTER. Plus 20% off a full manuscript edit (the 20% off offer will last for a month from date of win), by the amazingly talented Susan Lakin. She is a wonderful writing mentor, professional editor, and published author. You can see more about her at her charming website. I can definitely vouch for her as I have used her myself. :)


Second place:
Free CRITIQUE of a SYNOPSIS or a QUERY LETTER, by the magnificent Paula B from The Writing Show. She too is a professional writing mentor and helped me to perfect my query letter and synopsis. She did an awesome job!


Third place:
$10 Amazon gift voucher


How to enter:
2 entries if you are already a follower and comment on this post
1 entry if you follow after May 4th and comment on this post
+1 entry if you blog about this contest and post the link into the comments
+2 entries if you permanently have the contest listed in your sidebar and let me know you have done so in the comments

ALSO, the lovely creative Caledonia Lass (aka Mel) is holding a contest too. Go check her out!

AND ANOTHER, the extraordinary and witty Candyland (aka Candace) is holding a contest too. So go check it out and enter!

GOOD LUCKY-O!!!

    I will give a shout on my page for ya though!

  10. Morning Jessica. Please put me down for 3 entries. I have your blog listed in my sidebar, but it just goes to your main page, not this contest, so that probably doesn't count. I will edit the link in my post for today to point only to this contest.

    Thanks for sharing!

  30. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I became a follower today.

    Well, I mean, I follow your blog now. Not that I am, in general, a follower. Quite the opposite. I tend to get in big trouble for not following, if you get my drift.

    Anyway, I love your name! "Alliterative Allomorph." Now I have to go look up "allomorph." ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Am I allowed to blog about it AND put it in the sidebar? :) Too late, I already did - I'm really a very competitive person. Besides, I think your blog is fabulous, so, why not? :)
    Here's the link, by the way.
