I’ve been meaning to tell you all about a blog I really like and a contest that made my eyes bug out of my head.
First: Allison Winn Scotch’s blog Ask Allison. It is a wealth of information about the publishing industry from a writer’s point of view. She covers everything you could ever want to know. And I have learned a lot from her blog.
Second: this upcoming contest. A guaranteed query and 1st chapter read by her agent, Elisabeth Weed. No worries about getting lost in slush. No feelings of if only they would read that first chapter, I know they would want my book! If you write adult fiction, particularly women’s fiction, and you have a completed manuscript and you’re ready to query, you are positively loony if you don’t run out and buy Allison’s new book The One That I Want and become eligible to enter this contest. Good luck!
