BIG GIVEAWAY!

Well, it's BIG for me!

Because I'm giving away THREE prizes, and you get to choose the one you want. As always, my giveaways are SUPER EASY. Today I'm asking for two things:
  1. You are a blog follower (see right-hand sidebar -- old and new followers have equal chances)
  2. Leave a comment telling me which prize you want 
 Now for the prizes!
  • FOR WRITERS: A manuscript critique by yours truly (Any manuscript, any length, any genre; I'm a YA writer, but I read all over the place; I don't have a lot of credentials to throw at you--just a BA in creative writing-- but I have learned quite a lot in the last four years, since I started writing with the goal of publication ... and it never hurts to have another set of critical eyes on your ms, right?)
  • FOR READERS: I'm giving away TWO reader prizes: Any book from The Book Depository (max price-- $20US). They ship anywhere in the world, FREE. Is that cool or what?
This contest is open internationally. I'll keep it open for a full week. Contest closes Wednesday, August 31, 2011 at 11:59p.m. PST.

Please, please, please enter! And hooray for 200 followers! I am so thankful for every one of you!!

  4. Congratulations! Yes, I do follow your blog. :-) I'm never one to turn down a good book! (Well, that and the fact that I'm probably a couple of YEARS from finishing a first draft... LOL!)

  5. Congrats on 200! I'm torn between what I want though. Manuscript critique sounds awesome, but so does a book *___* Can I be wishywashy and say I'll decide if I win? xD

  6. Congratulations on your milestone! Your blog is always a fun and thought-rousing read!

    If I win (X <-- those are my crossed fingers)... if I win, I would love for you to eyeball my manuscript!

    I want a critique...of course.
    Just for those of you writers out there, Amy has a "good eye" for ms critiquing!

  10. :) I'm game for the book, Amy. But if I were in the manuscript-writing business, I'd take a critique from your creative and discerning eyes any day!

  17. Critique.

    Uh, I suppose a manuscript has to be written before it can be critiqued, doesn't it? Is there an expiration date on the prize?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Awesome on reaching 200 followers! I'd love a critique prize. Books are awesome too--but I need a critique more!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm following you on Bloglovin'.. does that count? The networked blogs thing keeps giving me an error...

  35. Krista V. sent me.

    Eyeballs on the ms., please!!

  36. I'm already a follower, and I'll go in for the free book (I have no doubt your critique would be fantastic, but I've got nothing to critique at the moment; other writers could probably use that more than I could :-).

    ReplyDelete
  37. Critique, although I seem to have difficulty doing the "follow this blog" thing....

    ReplyDelete
  38. Never mind... the networked blogs thing didn't work, but there was a nice convenient "Follow" link at the top of the page once I signed in with my google account.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Congrats on 200! I'd love a full manuscript critique of my YA.

  44. HI Amy. I'm a new follower thanks to Krista. I follow her blog and I always learn something great....like finding you and this contest. I have just finished what I hope is a final revision (okay, I know that animal doesn't exist, but I can dream) and I would LOVE another set of eyes.

  46. I squealed when I read your blog for the first time. I too live in a small town on the sunny side of WA state! And I am very familiar with the Flying H and have done ministry there in the past. How fun to 'meet' another aspiring author so close. I would love to win a manuscript critique! Cdale
