So ABC is for an All-Out Bloggiversary Contest!
As many of you know, I host a monthly picture book contest that began in August 2010. This month, my bloggiversary month, I'd love to have more than one winner. That means I'll need to have LOTS of entrants participating. Not only do you win recognition and a huge boost of confidence, but the winner of each category wins a critique of his or her ms, AND a marketing plan from me. This is especially useful if you aren't planning on looking for an agent and you don't have access to a market book. The five categories are:
- Early PBs (age 2-5) Just think pre-school. (Shorter, simpler, etc.)
- "Classic" PBs (age 4-8) You know, my favorite!
- Non-fiction PBs
- Rhyming PBs
- Animal PBs
Every person that enters (and you can enter more than one category - this month only) will also be entered into a drawing to win Crocodaddy by Kim Norman. If you enter all five categories, that's five chances to win her book!
If you ENTER the contest, you can win Crocodaddy. If you enter the contest (and have a prize-winning ms), you win recognition, a critique, AND the marketing plan.
If you blog or tweet about the contest, you'll win chances to win The Giblin Guide to Writing Children's Books by James Cross Giblin. It's a wealth of information for ALL children's writers, including MG and YA! If you blog about the contest, you'll get 5 extra points. You can tweet once daily @christiewild for 1 point per tweet. Just tweet this (copy and paste), or feel free to change up the wording if you like: February Bloggiversary Alphabet - contests to win #writing books and a critique of your PB! @christiewild.
CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO ALL WHO PLAYED. WINNERS LISTED BELOW.
