Post: The Cosmic Critique Contest

I have a feeling that last Monday's post was saturated somewhat, and maybe the contest I posted fell through the holes of the Interweb. Little interest as been given and I don't want anyone to miss out on this one. If that is the case, this is your second chance to enter . . .

To celebrate The Laire's 50 followers, I'm holding my very first contest! The best part is, everyone's a winner! The prize is a full chapter critique (up to 3K words). One for old followers (before 50) and one for new followers (after 50). Here are the rules to enter, Space Minions!

1: You must be a follower.
2: Comment on this post.
3: Link this contest on your blog, sometime between now and Feb 7th (one week). Spread the word!
4: On Tuesday, Feb 8th, I'll hold a drawing.

I will announce the winners and provide an email to send me your sample for a full critique. For everyone else, you may email me up to 250 words (one page) of anything or a query letter. How does that sound?
Note: I will not open files. Paste your prose, please :)

I solemnly vow to respect your work and provide the best feedback I can give. Your work will not be shared with anyone else. Cosmic Scouts honor! Good luck!

I'm David, and I can't do this without you.


  1. you have been sidebar-ed! I have nothing ready for such a thing yet, but what a great contest! Good luck with it!

  2. I am not sure what sidebar-ed is, but thank you, Colene! :)
