300 Follower Contest!

Would you believe that both myself and my writing partner, Lindsay Currie, are both incredibly close to hitting 300 followers?  Yeah, I know - I was shocked too!  Shocked and grateful.  So, I'm going to keep this short and sweet today. Lindsay and I would like to ring in 300 followers with style.  We're both still a handful away, but were hoping you guys would help AND are proposing a little contest for fun!  Here's how it will work:

1.  Be a follower on both our blogs and leave us a comment and let us know you want to be part of the contest.  

2.  Last but not least, here's the part where you help us!  Use any social platform to help us achieve our goal of 300 followers.  If you tweet about our blogs, great!  Tweet and add it to your blog sidebar or feature our blogs in one of your posts - even better!  Any way you choose to help us will get you into the contest:)  Lindsay's twitter ID: @lindsayncurrie   Trisha's twitter ID:  @tleaver  Just don't forget to comment on our blogs so we know you're in!

Now, on to the good stuff.  The prize.  Come Monday,  Lindsay and I will go through both of our blogs and generate a random winner!  (the oh-so-advanced random generator will likely be one of our children pulling a name out of a hat BTW.  Yeah, we're technological like that).  

The winner will receive a 3 chapter manuscript critique and a query critique...not from one of us, but from BOTH.  Two sets of eyes.  Two sets of comments.  Also, if you'd like to get more than just our feedback, we're willing to put your query up on the blog for our daily readers to comment/give feedback on.  In addition to the critique, you will receive some writing essentials swag from both of us:  
Trisha survives on a combination of chocolate and caffeine and will ensure that you have a basket of those delivered to fuel all of your writing/revising needs!  And, isn't that mug adorable? You need this basket of goodies:)
Lindsay relies on hordes of journals, highlighters and index cards when she's writing or editing, so she'll stock your writing area with them!  And, since Fall is here tomorrow,  a mango-peach candle and pumpkin shaped stress relief ball are perfect writing companions:)  
 
So, you on board?  We'd love to pass 300 and would love celebrating it with you guys even more!

  12. Funny, I've been reading Lindsay's blog for a while, and I knew you existed because she mentions you often, but it never occurred to me that you might have a blog, too. Duh.

    Congrats! I was #301. :)

    You're repped by my dream agent, and I'm sure you'll be a great success with her repping you. I'd like to be in the contest if there's still space.

  18. I just came across your blog and I think it's great. I'm an aspiring writer, too (my blog is still in progress & I've just been admiring all the other writing blogs out there).

    This contest is probably already over, but I don't mind. I'm happy to spread the word anyway. I'm following you and I tweeted about your blog.
