Now - the rules. Yes, we need rules. Now listen up!
#1 - Existing followers leave a comment and include a one line pitch of your book. One lucky winner will be selected to receive a free crit of their first 150 words. New followers MUST leave their 150 words as part of their comment to qualify for the free crit (no private emails please!) (+5 points)
Some rules about entries:
A: Please keep it "G" rated (no bad words, no sex, drugs or violence. I have some teens and middle-grade followers and would like to keep it clean for them.)
B: Please limit it to 150 words (or less). Don't take advantage of my craziness and go over! If your 150 words ends in the middle of a sentence, stop at the sentence before.
C: Include your email addy with your entry so I can, ya'know, mail you the crit.
Got it? Good!
