200 followers celebration! (Everyone get up and dance the chicken with me. Ready. Go.) (Yeah, I didn’t do it either.)
I know 200 followers is a sneeze in the breeze to some of you out there, but we’re told to celebrate the small moments. So gosh darn it all – that’s what I’m going to do!
In the past couple months I’ve been blessed to win incredible first chapter critiques and query letter critiques. I’d like to give back.
So to celebrate and give back, here’s the giveaway.
One winner will receive a copy of SAVE THE CAT by Blake Snyder. If you already own this must-read book on story structure, then you may choose a book of equal value or less from Amazon.
And, if you want, I’d be honored to read Act I (about the first quarter) of your current work-in-progress and break it down according to Blake Snyder’s beat sheet. It’s not a line edit or even a regular critique. It’s just me analyzing the story structure in the opening of your work, and offering suggestions if I see ways to make it stronger. Click here and here for two examples. I’m not an expert by any means, so feel free to say no to the crit. I won’t be offended. Seriously.
Okay, here are the rules.
- Must be a follower.
- Must tweet and leave a link in comments. Don’t forget your email address.
- You may tweet up to once a day and leave another comment on this post with the link to improve your chances.
- If you choose to blog about it or put it on your sidebar then leave another comment!
- The critique is worldwide but the book will be U.S. only. Unless I can send the Kindle version? Not sure how that works.
Contest ends MARCH 7TH AT NOON eastern time.
Good luck everyone! And thanks for all your support – you guys are the best!
