Challenge Day 10: Posting the Trilogy Contest

Yup. Up early again. Won’t state the time. Dreaming again when the alarm and thunder-boomers woke me. Not zombies, but about a fashion show and a dead tennis player. Weird. I know. Maybe the cantelope I ate before bed didn’t digest right.

Anyway, I reposted Tess’s, Marie’s, and Rachel’s contest-thingie. This was the easiest post idea to come up with so far. Five more days to go, and I’ve learned it’s not a hard thing to do. You know, they say it takes twenty-one days to make something a habit.

Okay. Enough of that. The point of this blog is below.


Something is here… Trilogy contest!

January 4th, 2011

2010 was quite the year for us…

We started blogging

We made character sketches

We attended WriteOnCon (*waves to other attendees*)

We outlined (or not)

We found each other as critique partners

We met a whole lot of awesome people (*waves to you*)

We wrote and wrote and wrote

We ripped our WIPs to shreds and glued them back together

We blogged more
And we wrote

And we plotted!

You’ve all seen our teasers, the something that’s coming from far away to shake up the blogosphere. Now, at long last, something is here. Something x 3.

We’re happy, excited, and thrilled to announce our Trilogy Contest. Your chance to win one of a gigantic stack of amazingly awesome prizes.

And here they are*:

3 x query or synopsis (max. 2 pages) critiques (winner’s choice)
3 x first 300 words critiques
3 x first 3 pages critiques
3 x first 30 pages critiques

*For the picture book writers, Rach will convert any of the above prizes into a picture book critique! And if you win a 30 page critique, she’ll critique 3 of your picture book WIPs instead!!!

Rather have a book? We’ve thought about that too! If more than 50 people enter the Trilogy Contest, we’ll share some of our favorites/dying to reads.

So Rach will give away a copy of… Across The Universe
Tessa will give away a copy of… Unearthly
And I will give away a copy of… The Mockingbirds

To enter, you need to be a follower of each of Rach, Tessa’s, and my blogs via Google Friend Connect (or Networked Blogs). You’ll also need to fill out this form.

The Trilogy Contest will end on January 31 and winners will be randomly drawn and announced the following week (only one prize per person).

We’ll be giving extra entries to those who blog, tweet, or otherwise spread the word about the Contest. Just copy your links into the original form up above. (Of course, you can pop back anytime and fill out this bonus form to add extra points for additional blogs/tweets etc. But only after you filled in the original form, just so our heads won’t ‘splode with all the extra maths ;) )

‘Cause you guys rock, there’ll be an additional +10 entries for everyone who’s a follower of all our blogs before January 11, so get in quick and follow along if you haven’t already. And spread the word so your friends can have a chance as well.

Bet you thought we were finished. Well, we’re not!!! We’re throwing in a special bonus. For each of us that gets to 300 followers, we’ll donate a $30 Amazon gift card to a random contest entrant who is also a follower of our blog.

Is that fantastic or what! You may have noticed a little Trilogy theme here, more on that later…

For now, let the fun begin!!
