Congrats on passing 100 followers! And ... wow! Your giveaway of critiques is ... ambitious.

Anyway, I don't live in the US, but I do have a US address :) Hope I can still enter -- I've actually been waiting to read FORESTS OF HANDS AND TEETH.

Congrats on your 100th follower! Hopefully I'll get there someday...and I sure wouldn't mind winning Forests of Hands and Teeth either :)

Melissa said...

I wish to be entered into your contest, pretty please. And WOW, your query critique, 250 words is ambitious! Go you! I haven't written a query but it might be interesting to see what someone thinks of my first 250 words... so thanks! And GOOD LUCK!

Congratulations on 100+ followers! That's really awesome. And so is this contest -- both of those are books I've been wanting to read. :)

And thank you for the generous query or 250-word critique offer. *goes to biff up hers*

Now it's my turn to hang my head in shame. Why was I not following your blog? I am now, but I don't really need to be entered into the book drawing - I'm kinda scared of that book. :) However, I think I'll email you my first query when I get it written. It may be a while! Congrats on the 100+ followers!

We must be thinking along the same lines, because I'm working up a giveaway for my 100 followers, too. I don't know that I'll be nearly as generous as you for critiquing something from *everyone* but kudos for doing it!

Please enter me for the books. (Books... I love books...)

Congrats on reaching 100 followers (up to 119 now!) What a fun give away.

David P. King said...

Shoot. I missed the critique deadline. Would have been a great opportunity to share my work with you. Ah well. I'll settle for the followers contest. Good job reaching 100 followers (and now 119. You had like 69 two weeks ago. Your blog is exploding!) Keep up the good work, and thanks for offering your skills to help others.

Janet Johnson said...

You are so nice! And congrats on the followers. :) I'd love to enter both. :)

Madeleine said...

Wow 119 followers that's brilliant! How lovely of you to offer to critique work. I might take you up on it myself :O) Thank you Shallee for a lovely blogsite.

A.L. Sonnichsen said...

Yay for contests! I gave you a little award on my blog. You can choose the sweet blog award or the versatile blogger award -- or both if you want. :) I also gave a tiny mention about your contest there too.

Wow, I haven't read Forest of Hands and Teeth yet, but I would love to, and the other book looks amazing, too. I love contests!! And if I can get my act together, I will send you my stuff for critique. I am always eager for opinions from people I trust.
