I wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who has taken to the time to congratulate me on my book deal these last few days. From emails and blog comments to twitter messages and RTs, you guys have been amazing. I have been so touched by how genuinely thrilled and excited everyone seems to be – for me, to read my book, about the deal in general. Seriously, thank you all!!!
I’m still waiting for many details regarding LAICOS, such as an expected publication date, and I will share more info as it become available. In the meantime, if you wanted to go add THE LAICOS PROJECT on goodreads, that would be awesome!
In honor of all this great news – and mostly because I’m still riding out my high from Wednesday – I thought I should host a celebratory giveaway. Writing a book, snagging an agent, and landing a book deal has been an exciting journey for me so far. I am 100% certain that getting to this milestone would not have been possible without the support of my friends, family and husband, but since I can’t give these things away, I will give away everything else that helped me get to where I am now.
» Giveaway Details (or, crucial necessities for every writer):
Books: a $20 amazon.com gift card
Buy yourself that book you’ve been dying to read. Curl up on the couch, turn the pages through the night, and face your MS in the morning re-inspired.
Music: a $10 iTunes gift card
Download some new writing music and listen while you attack that pesky scene.
Coffee: a $5 Starbucks gift card
Go get yourself something delicious and caffeinated. You are going to need it for that final chapter.
Feedback: a 30-page critique by yours truly
An objective critique partner made a world of difference for LAICOS. I’ll read the first 30 pages of your MS (completed or wip) and give you my honest thoughts!
- To enter, leave me a comment and tell me your favorite read in recent months (Even though my TBR list is miles long, I’m always looking for great recommendations).
- Specify which items you would like to enter to win. For example, if you hate coffee and have nothing that needs critiquing at the moment, say “entering for books and music only.” If you don’t specify any items, I will assume you are entering for all.
- Giveaway is open until Sunday, April 17, at 11:59PM (EST). US and Canada only. Winners will be announced 4/18.
** NOTE: I approve comments before they appear on this site, but rest assured that if you submit your comment at 11:59 or earlier on 4/17, it will qualify as an entry (It may just take me until the following morning to approve it and push it live)
