An article and a freebie ARC contest
One of my other writing goals this year was to write an article for my chapter’s, the Maryland Romance Writers, monthly newsletter, The Pulse. Today I drafted a “should your chapter include a YA category in your writing contest” piece entitled To Offer or Not To Offer. I’ll post when it comes out. I knew our category winners had entered multiple contests and two had sold, so I put out an email to catch up with them and ask about their contest experiences. It was fun to hear the news and all had valuable tips for contest coordinators and judges in the YA arena, which I received permission to include.
One gal, Lisa Desrocher, has had her YA book Personal Demons inserted into Macmillian’s fall list. It’ll be released September 14, 2010. She’s hosting a contest, with one prize option an ARC of the book.
He …heck, I’d love to read more than the 20 pages I read of her contest entry. I’m in on the contest. Click over to her blog and enter.
