Query Critique Contest!

I am so thrilled to be on Matthew Rush's blog today! I've posted my query and he's given his critique/feedback along with my thoughts on it. It's fun and he's is amazing, so you HAVE to check it  out HERE!

In conjunction with the theme of queries, we're doing a Contest and there will be TWO winners! And this is one is very simple. Here's the rules.

1. Leave a comment on this post saying you want the query crit

And/or

2. Leave a comment on Matthew's blog on todays post saying you want the query cit.

3. Winner will be chosen on AUGUST 3rd

Easy, right? I will randomly pick one winner from Matthew's comments and one winner on this post. You can double up your chances by commenting on both.

Just be sure to say you want the "query crit" in the comments though or else I won't know to add you to the contest since not every person needs/wants one.

Now, if you would like to tweet, facebook, or help get the word out, it might not help you with extra points, but I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER!

Happy Friday!!

OH MY GOSH!!! So I've just started working on my query letter but how cool of you to offer critiques! I'll dive in and say SIGN ME UP! So put me on the list to win a query crit :)

I'll sidebar you my love! Along with your art giveaway up there :)

(((HUGS)))

BTW your query rocked so I'm especially excited to get the chance to have my query critiqued but you!!!

Great contest! I'm not entering...just wanted to stop by and tell you I loved your query letter and your blog is great! Can't wait to read your book!

Amie B said...

you helped me so much on my other query...i'd love to have your help again! but, unfortunately, i don't have another book complete....yet!

Matthew Rush said...

I already <3 you forever Rose, and I can't enter anyway. Well that plus I am in the middle of a re-write into first person and ... the plot shouldn't change too drastically, but you never know!

BTW I don't blog on weekends so the post will be up until Monday morn. Hopefully we'll get some more people interested in a crit cause right now Jen's the winner by default (not that she doesn't deserve it, she rocks).

What a great post! I love the fact that both of you broke it down and gave your thoughts. Definitely inspired me to write my children's book/novel.

I would love to have a query critiqued, but is this only for fiction? Are proposals for non-fiction? My non-fiction piece (a devotional) is much closer to that step than my fiction. Though I'm not sure where a bedtime story would fit in. (I will ask this on both blogs in case anybody at either site happens to be wondering the same things)

I'd love a query crit!

I joked on Matthew's blog about you critiquing my manuscript. Apparently I didn't read the very bottom of the post to see winning a critique was actually part of the contest. What a great prize. I hope I win.

I'll post this contest on Facebook.

Very cool . . . I'll head to Matthew's next.

And sure, throw me in the running. :)

Steena Holmes said...

Now how cool is this!
Count me in please!!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Very cool contest. I popped over to say I loved your query, can't wait to read the book :)

Slamdunk said...

Excellent Rose. I am headed over to Mathew's site to read now...

Vicki Rocho said...

I don't have a query to crit...not a real one anyhow. I have a mock one I had to write for a class, but it scarcely resembles my book.

Angela M. said...

Found your awesome blog through Matthew. I love it. And the hooks were easy to see in your query.

Definitely put me in for a query crit. I could use a lot of help.
