This Just In...!

You will all be glad to know that I'm starting the week with one of my shortest posts ever!

Woo-hoo!  More time for you guys to go do other fun things!

I had great intentions for a proper post, but, well... stuff happens... long story...

So all I have to share today is THE PRIZE for the March Madness Writing Contest.  (If you missed the guidelines, read all about it HERE! - scroll down below the perfect picture book)

Are you ready?

Are you holding onto your socks (which are in danger of being blown off)? :)

The winner of the March Madness Writing Contest will get...

...drum roll please...!

...to have one of their picture book manuscripts read by the one and only Karen Grencik, renowned agent at Red Fox Literary!!!  And Karen will give helpful feedback!!!  And who knows - if you send a good enough story, she might love you and ask to see more!!!

I hope that lights the fire under you and you are now all racing for your pencils/pens/laptops/writing tools of choice!

And due to my exceptionally brief post (some might call it a masterpiece of brevity - that would be fine with me :)), you have extra writing time, so hop right to it!  Let me know how it goes!

May the muse be with you!

Have a marvelous Monday, everyone :)

  5. I know! It was so generous of her! And it's such a great prize. If you don't have an agent, this could be your chance. If you do have an agent, you're still getting a critique from someone with insider knowledge of the publishing business and the market. Win-win! :)

  6. You know, I wish you could just be a little more enthusiastic, Erik. This deadpan lack of emotion gets me down. :)

  8. On March 20th when the contest opens, you can either post it on your blog if you have one and put your link on the list that will be here, or you can post it in the comment section of my March 20 blog post, or you can email it to me and I'll post it.

  17. Maybe! I find it difficult to turn away from madness. :) Which is probably why I continue to post in an incognito window here instead of figuring out how to fix my browser!
