If you entered our Line-By-Line contest but didn't make it past Round One, we have an amazing announcement for you! Inspired by Michele Shaw's post today about how losing the Line-by-line contest helped her see the problems with her novel opening, we have decided to extend critiques to those who need them the most.
A number of incredibly generous authors have agreed to host a critique clinic for the 25 who didn't make it through to Round Two. If you are one of those individuals, and you're interested in participating, post your first five lines in the comments of this post by Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. We will put them up on Tuesday for input from our panel of authors and other writers interested in helping you make your opening more compelling.
We'll be posting bios of the participating authors on Tuesday. Some of them are already scheduled to do the other contest critiques, but we have some exciting additions, too. Don't miss this opportunity!
