CONTEST: critique of 1st 50 pgs

Hello! I’ve been promising a great contest on Twitter for when I hit 5,000 followers. And that happened today, I’m excited to say. Thank you all for reading my tweets!!

Anyway, here are the contest rules:

I will give away TWO critiques of the first 50 pages of a manuscript(young adult, new adult or adult, in any fiction genre). The manuscript needs to be in English (figured I’d just throw that out there, lol). The formatting should be a readable size 12 font, double-spaced, 1-inch margins–this is industry standard. 🙂

And how do you enter this contest? Simple. Leave a comment here with your twitter handle (e.g., @rhelmsbooks is mine) so I can verify at the drawing that you’re one of my followers. If you’re not a follower, there’s still time! You can follow me–my twitter account is HERE–& then leave your comment on this blog post.

Even if you’re not a winner this time, hopefully you guys will stick around after this contest, because I also give lots of writing tips, publishing advice and more! And I like to randomly do giveaways and contests too. Cuz that’s how I roll. 😉

This contest will close Monday, June 24, at 11:59 pm EST. I will use a random number generator to pick my two winners and will @ you on Twitter if you are a winner. So make sure to look for something from me on Twitter on Tuesday! You have 48 hours to affirm that you’d like to have me critique your first 50 pages — I’ll tell you in my tweet how to send to me. 🙂 If you don’t reply in that time, I’ll pick another winner.

Thanks, and best of luck!

UPDATE: Contest winners announced in comments below. Thanks for entering!
