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 :)
Who do we send it to Susanna?ReplyDelete
Wow, great prize, great contest, Susanna. Best of luck to all who enter!ReplyDelete
YAY!!! WOOOOOOO!!! :DReplyDelete
What an inspiring prize. Thanks to you both.ReplyDelete
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! :)ReplyDelete
You know, I wish you could just be a little more enthusiastic, Erik. This deadpan lack of emotion gets me down. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ruth! I wish you would join us this time!!! :)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Wow, very cool prize! Wishing everyone happy visits from their muses. :) Hope you have a great week, Susanna. :)ReplyDelete
Fabulous prize, Susanna! And have a great week!ReplyDelete
Fabulous, Susanna! May the muse be with you all!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Catherine! Glad you like :)ReplyDelete
Yes, I heartily agree! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Coleen! You too! Maybe you want to join us in the madness....? :)ReplyDelete
You give the awesome-est prizes, Susanna. You are a National Treasure for children's book authors everywhere.ReplyDelete
What a perfectly wonderful prize Susanna. :-)ReplyDelete
Great prize! Hopping away to other tasks.ReplyDelete
That is an awesome prize!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Wow! What a great prize Susanna! Way to light a fire. :)ReplyDelete
I'm thinking you may have more entries than last time.ReplyDelete
Well, if you give a writer a match... or something... :)ReplyDelete
Glad you think so, Stina! I will be expecting an entry from you this time! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Angela! Glad you think so. Maybe you'd like to enter this time (she said temptingly...) or maybe Chipmunk would! :)ReplyDelete
Aw shucks, Mike! you're full of baloney, but very nice :)ReplyDelete
Hahaha! That's funny! I don't think that's possible!ReplyDelete
Hmmm...We'll just have to see lol!ReplyDelete
Glad you think so, Pat! But YIKES that's an intimidating thought - more than 100 entries!ReplyDelete
