Which really isn't the same. So I've come up with another way to thank you. But first, I have a winner to announce.
The lucky winner of free registration for C.J.'s next Query Workshop--according to Randomizer.org--is...
Enjoy it Marsha--that workshop is AMAZING! And check your email, there's one from me with all the information you'll need. :)
And I know I'd also promised to give away 5 critiques by yours truly, that way more people would walk away with a reward for their generosity. But the more I've thought about it--and the more I've watched everyone rise to the occasion and jump on the cause--well...that didn't seem like enough.
So I decided--in what I *hope* isn't a moment of insanity--to do a free query critique for all the other entrants. Um, yeah, you're reading that right.
I can't guarantee that you're going to like any of my advice, and you certainly don't have to take me up on the offer. But if you entered Monday's contest, check your inbox. There's one from me telling you how to send your query to me if you want the critique.
*prepares for a flood of email*
Thank you again to everyone who helped out. C.J.'s not there yet, but we've closed a HUGE chunk of the gap, and we couldn't have done it without you. And if you missed the earlier post and would like to help bring an orphan home from China, you can find instructions for how to donate here.
Have a great weekend everyone!
And be sure to stop by next week. It's time for another one of my awesome theme weeks--this time highlighting a middle grade series you SERIOUSLY need to check out. The authors have been kind enough to donate some pretty stinking amazing prizes--and I have a few tricks of my own--so be sure to stop by all five days. I promise not to disappoint! :)
