Contest closes at midnight on Thursday, April 8th. Winners announced on Friday the 9th!
The day has finally come! 300 brilliant, electrifying and I must say, quite fetching followers of my blog! It's been an amazing week for me and hitting the 300 follower mark is the icing on the cake! On Tuesday I received the first half of my advance for BILLYCAN: Book II of the Nightshade Chronicles! Wednesday I spoke with my editor and found out some really surprising things they're going to do to market Nightshade City! Yesterday I received the 1st pass galley, which included some of the new chapter illustrations, which are completely full of awesomeness, thanks to the astonishing illustrator Omar Ryyan! Just wait until you see the cover, which also has a special surprise on it...but can say!!! Argghh!
So, in honor of all these remarkable events my fabulous and overworked agent, Marietta Zacker of the Nancy Gallt Literary Agency has graciously offered up her services to three lucky winners!!! The three winners will have their choice of how they'd like their prize doled out. Please note: This is open to all writers and illustrators!
Choices: (1) 30 page critique of your MS, (2) a query critique, (3) a 30 minute phone call to talk about your writing or illustrations!!! Yes, a real live phone call!
If you don't win one of the above prizes or you already have an agent, don't despair! I'm giving away three more prizes! Two lucky winners will each receive a $25.00 gift card to Barnes & Noble or an American Booksellers Association gift card if you have an Indie store you love dearly, choice is yours! Last but not least, one winner will receive a signed copy of the NIGHTSHADE CITY ARC! They are printing this month and hitting the streets on April 26th!! Gah!
To recap the five prizes:
3 winners will receive a critique or phone call with the inimitable Marietta Zacker!
2 winners will receive a $25.00 gift card to B&N or the ABA!
1 winner will receive a signed (by me of course) ARC of NIGHTSHADE CITY!
My rules are easy, nothing wonky:
1. If you are already a follower, simply leave a comment!
2. If you are not a follower of my blog become one through the google followers link, (you won't be disappointed, scout's honor!) and leave a comment on this post.
4. If you already have an agent, please put "Agented" in the comment, so I know to only enter you in the last 3 prizes!
5. Please enter only once!
6. The contest will run until next Friday and I will announce the lucky winners, all chosen randomly!
So, follow, comment and conquer, my pretties!
Happy Writing and Illustrating to you all!
