New Year Query crit contest!

 This contest is now closed! Winners announced above : )

So, as promised, here it is! Wanna win a query crit from me? See the little gift tag on the present there? It's got your name on it. Well, maybe.

New year, new set of rules for this one.

Firstly, I'm going to open it up for the whole week.

Secondly, you must have the query down to 300 words or less all by your lonesome, or with help from voodoo rituals. Your choice.

This is my little New Year pressy to you, so that's it for rules. 

All you need to do to enter is put your name, the name and genre of your ms and your email address in the comments section below.  I'll choose a winner, or maybe two, from the list and critique the hell out of your query.

And like my other contest, I'm not going to insist you follow my blog to enter, but it's appreciated if you do. I'm not going to insist that you tweet about it either, but it's cool if you do.

Good luck to all, and Happy New Year to my lovely followers. I'll close the contest after one week and choose a winner or three :D Plus I'll get your query back to you within a week. It's all good, right?
