The mini-contest is over, but don't miss another. You can still sign up for my newsletter and get notifications.
News! Get it First!
News! Get it First!
It's not easy to try something new, but I always say what the heck. It could be fun. So I'm going to try and gather a list of people who'd be interested in a newsletter from me.
What this newsletter would be is a way to get early notice of any contests I might have up my sleeve or any writing news that springs at me like a tiger from the bushes. It will be a heads up that something interesting is going to happen. For example: I might notify you of the release of my newest short story or send you an advance preview of the agents for Query Kombat. (QK is coming in late spring.)
What this newsletter will not be is a weekly or even a monthly thing to clutter your inbox. I plan to only use it sparingly. Nor will the information I collect be used for any other purpose. (Disclaimer Disclaimer Legalese terms here)
All you have to do is fill out the information in the right sidebar. Which means your name and email address, along with any message you want to leave me.
To unsubscribe, leave that message in the same contact widget and I'll take you off the list. Or shout at me on twitter or anywhere else.
Almost forgot! Published/agented writers, if you're interested in being a mentor or judge in a future contest, fill out the form and put mentor/judge in the comment section.
To start things off with a mini-contest, I'll pick one person who signs up for the newsletter to receive a private query critique from me and an ebook copy of Winter's Regret with my latest short story. (When Winter's Regret becomes available.)
And as a second and even better prize, my agent Sarah Negovetich is offering a query critique as well! Sarah reps YA and MG, but she has great insight to offer on any query.
I'll take entries until midnight on March 14, 2014. Your manuscript does not need to be completed.
So that's it. Let's see if this idea sinks or floats. Thanks everyone! Questions can go in the comments.
I'm super excited! I will definitely enter.ReplyDelete

I just entered. Love the idea of a newsletter! :)ReplyDelete
Wow! This is going much better than I expected. Thanks everyone!ReplyDelete
I'm not sure if my request to join the newsletter went through or not, since the computer didn't update. But please add me to it. You don't have to enter me in anything, I just want to keep tabs on what you're putting out. You're such a busy lady!ReplyDelete
It didn't come through, but I marked you down, Joyce. Thanks!Delete
Mine keeps saying, "sending" and never finishes. Can you please add me to your list? Brilliant idea, by the way. Thanks :)ReplyDelete
Hope you got my request and message!ReplyDelete
Yes. I have yours. :-)Delete

I do not see where to sign up! I want your newsletter (and to win your contest, of course).ReplyDelete
It's in the right side bar. But it won't show up on mobile. You can leave your email and I'll add you.Delete
Signed up. Looking forward to the newsletter and the contest.ReplyDelete
