|Erin C. Niumata, Senior V.P.|
The Prize: One lucky writer will be able to submit the first three chapters of their manuscript (not to exceed 50 pages) - as well as a short synopsis (2-3 pages) if they have one – for Erin to critique. Like I said, priceless! ***Open to ALL genres including YA and also non-fiction
How to Enter: Unfortunately, the first contest ended. If you are seeing this post for the first time, please follow my twitter @AnnMarie_Walker for new on future contests.
Update: May 3, 2012
First of all, a great big thank you to Erin Niumata for allowing me to host this contest on my blog!
Second, a heartfelt thanks to all of you who completed the entry trifecta and tirelessly spread the word through retweets. It has been such a pleasure getting to know so many dedicated writers (and watching you connect with one another). I look forward to our future tweets!
The response to this contest has been overwhelming – over 100 contestants as of last night and another 11 coming in just this morning. (And that doesn’t even factor in the many RT bonus entries!)
Thanks to this morning’s influx, I have a bit of last minute tallying to do before I can let random.org pick the winner. In the meantime I have an announcement to share:
You Can Bid on a Critique Via a Charity Auction:
The Brenda Novak Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes has manuscript evals up for auction with the bidding starting as low as $2.00 in some cases. There are about 44 editors and agents (including Erin) who are each offering various services...plus it’s for charity...how cool is that?! The auction is underway now and ends May 31st. Click here for details.
While you go browse the auction items, I’m going to go fill out entries for today’s contestants and tally up the morning’s retweets. (and maybe eat breakfast, er...lunch?) I promise to work as fast as I can and will name the winner later today on this blog post, so be sure to check back.
