Blogiversary (Blogoversary? Bloggiversary? Blogowhat?) WINNERS!!!

So tweeps, first of all, let me apologize for not commenting on blogs these past weeks—I had pneumonia in December and then my to-do pile was just so big that I’ve barely opened my Reader. But I’m planning on catching up in February. I haven’t forgotten about you!

And secondly!!
Thanks sooo much for coming to my celebration and participating in the contest/giveaway. =) I was really happy to see you guys there!

The winners. W00T!!

According to RANDOM.ORG, the winner of INCARNATE is…

ELENA!!! (@ onpeakhill)

Congrats, Elena!! (Email coming soon.)

And the winner of the 10-page critique is…

SARA!!! (@ riouch.sara)

Congrats, Sarah—can’t wait to start reading! (Email coming soon!)

Also, I didn’t think so many would want the critique! So, yanno, I’m always up for helping, and that’s why I’m throwing a SECOND PRICE!!

But it’s a WEIRD second price—lol. So, um, bear with me?

I’ll critique the first 1000 words of 12 extra writers. (Of the 25+ writers who preferred the critique.)

BUT, here’s the thing.

I’m going to the beach this week, and I’ll be without internet. And I don’t have time to email everyone. So. If your name’s on the list, you can email me your first 1000 words (pasted on the email) TODAY at moni.bwATgmail. So that’s why the 2nd price is weird. IT EXPIRES (unlike the first price) at midnight—since I won’t be downloading stuff at the beach. I’ll just be reading things there. =)

So here’s the list!

Burgandy Ice, KimberlyFDR, Patti, Jackie F, Deana, Saille, Suzi, Jani, tfwalsh, Krista V, Ladonna, Jenny K.

Also, if everyone on the list turns out to email today, then it might take me a while to read all the pages. BUT I look forward to hearing from y'all today!

Blogiversary!! Giveaway and Contest!!

The contest/giveaway is now closed--thanks for participating! ;)

Hey, guys!! It's my first BLOGIVERSARY this week!! =D
I'm SO excited!

And I have a new AMAZING agent and it's an awesome new year and I want TO CELEBRATE! So that's why I'm doing a contest today! (If you know me, then you sure know how much I love contests and giveaways! Hehe.)

First of all, since I'm SO HAPPY with my agent, Lauren MacLeod, and with the Strothman agency, I'm going to give away a copy of my new agency sister's novel (pre-order). You guessed it! INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows!!

(What a beautiful cover, right?)

But if you already read the ARC or already pre-ordered it, then I'm going to throw in another prize! I'll beta the first 10 pages of your manuscript! (I'll choose a winner randomly.)

To participate:

1) Leave a comment below, letting me know if you want INCARNATE or the 10-page critique.

2) You don't have to be a follower, but I'd love it if you are! (Because, yanno, I LOVE my followers.)

3) Leave your email. In case you win, I don't want to spend hours trying to contact you! 

I'll choose the two winners this Wednesday!!

Happy, HAPPY week!


ETA: The contest is open internationally--but if you don't live in the US, the delivery might take weeks.  (I would use a cheaper method to ship the book.)
