Elana J's Pay it Forward Query Critique Contest!

Just in case you haven't heard, YA author Elana Johnson is having an amazing contest on her blog. Click here to enter or read on for more details:

Here's what you can win: A query letter critique.

By whom?

By one of these top five literary agents!

1. Kate Testerman-Shafer of KT Literary (critique will be posted on her blog, Ask Daphne)
2. Michelle Andelman of Lynn C. Franklin Associates (my fabulous agent!)
3. Mary Kole of Andrea Brown Literary Agency
4. Michelle Wolfson of Wolfson Literary Agency
5. Joanna Volpe of Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation

Worth entering? You decide. But if you win, one of those agents will be helping you out with your query letter. And who better to do that than the people who read hundreds of them?

I mean, seriously.

In addition to that, FIVE more winners will win a free copy of my eBook, From the Query to the Call, which outlines in great detail how to write a query letter (and other things). All winners--as with all buyers--get a free query critique by me with this eBook.

As if that weren't enough, FIVE more winners will win a package of my all-time favorite writing tools: the super-sticky, super-size Post-it note. I love those things. They're 4x6-inches, so you can really take notes in the middle of the night and stick your scribbles to your laptop.

I'd enter just for a chance to win Elana's e-book! Be sure to check out how to enter on Elana's blog. She also links to other contests bloggers are having--Shannon O'Donnell and Shelli Johannes-Wells-- so there are plenty of chances for you to win! Good luck!

Good luck, y'all!

Honestly, Elana's been a real inspiration to me. She balances her writing life, her job, her family, and is always on top of her blogging.

And now that she's agented, I want to be even more like her, lol.

I may even cut my hair. ;)
