Today I have a HUGE announcement!
My critique partner, the amazingly wonderful, hugely-talented and all around awesome KAREN DENISE just got signed to SHELDON FOGLEMAN AGENCY in New York!!!!
Karen has worked so hard for this! She runs a blog, I AM ALWAYS WRITE but she got away from it for a few months so she could really focus on her writing. (We all know what that's like). The announcement that she's been signed came out on her blog today, but I don't think many people saw it.
So, here is what I'm going to do. For anyone who goes to Karen's Blog, follows it, and leave a comment offering her congratulations, I'll critique your first page. If you're wondering why you'd want a critique from me, go HERE.
So, just go to Karen's Blog, leave a comment, and then leave a comment on this blog letting me know you did it. You can email me your first page at tamaradwalsh 'at' yahoo '.' com.
For the first five people who put up a congratulations announcement for Karen on your own blog, (please link it back to hers as well) I'll do a five-page critique. Just leave a comment below with the link to your blog. I know I can't offer anything amazing like the Shelli Larson "Bigger than A Shopping Mall" giveaway. But that's what Karen deserves. So, I'm going to do what I can to give her a small celebration.
Again, I just can't take on more than five first-five page critiques, but anyone else who wants to offer Karen congratulations on their own blog just to be nice, that would be awesome!!
Let's get together as a community and spread the word. Karen didn't know anyone. She queried and got rejected and etc...etc...We all know the drill. She was found out of the slush pile. And if it can happen to her, it can happen to you. Or me. Or any of us. So, lets show one of our own some love!!!
