Query Helper Giveaway!

Okay, so between #pitchwars and #writeoncon, I've discovered something. I absolutely love helping others with their queries! I know, I'm a weird one. But there's something about steaks --er--- stakes that gets me uber excited.

With this new found love, I've decided to help out five other #pitchwars peeps who don't get selected for mentor or alternatives in Pitchwars 2014. The first five people to respond with their email address and a comment below will get a free query critique and a mild amount of brainstorming from me. To qualify, answer the following question: What was your absolute favorite part of Pitchwars this year?

~ ~ ~

Please keep in mind, I write MG and YA, and love fantasy, sci-fi, and historic novels best. So I might be better at these types of critiques. But I am willing to look at anything.

Disclaimer: I am an unpublished writer, so this is NOT a professional critique, just friendly help. Please take any and all my advice with a grain of salt and use what works for you.

And remember, keep writing!

  5. Yay! I forgot to say what I loved about Pitch Wars. So many, but I think it was the connection of knowing my basement-dwelling-frantic-writing behavior is shared by others :)

    1. Yeah, contests are wonderful for that! It reminds us that we aren't in this alone and we aren't losing our mind..... much! haha.

  6. I liked reading all the great information, not just the common mistakes that mentors were seeing with queries, but also tips/links on how to improve your writing.
