Follower Contest Extension
Posted by Angela Ackerman
We're going to extend our "Can you Hook Us?" Follower contest until March 20th to make sure all our Followers get ample time to get in their entries. Too, we've seen a few blurbs that don't quite follow guidelines, so I'll re post the rules here.
Please read the contest guidelines carefully before submitting.
How do you enter?
We are looking for engaging 1-2 sentence book blurbs from your completed novel or work-in-progress. All genres are welcome except for Erotica. You can submit your blurbs either in the comment section, or email Angela through her profile contact info. Please include the title, and if you like, the genre. Your goal is to hook us as best you can, so make your blurb compelling, accurate and dynamic.
Who can enter?
Anyone who is a current Follower of The Bookshelf Muse or is a member of our Facebook Group. And since I'm in a great mood over finally having my kitchen cabinets installed after huge delays (YAY!), anyone who has joined up since the contest opened is welcome to submit as well.
Now, the good stuff...prizes!
Up for grabs are 3 double critiques (one from Becca, one from Angela) on your first chapter or 3000 words, whichever comes first. We will pick our top three hooks and the prizes will be awarded on Sunday, March 22. If a Picture Book is chosen, the we will critique the full manuscript.
I'll post the current entries in the comment section so you can see the competition. If your entry is not included, likely your email has gone astray or the guidelines weren't quite followed, so feel free to resubmit.
Happy Hooking! And I mean that in a writerly way, not...*coughs*
