Competition time!

This competition isn't one of mine, (although I'm holding one VERY soon) this is one run by my lovely writerly friend Gemma Cooper, Literary Agent at The Bright Literary Agency.

Here's the link to the blog launch and competition. And check out those prizes!

What do you have to do?

Just tell us in the comments what types of things you would like to see on our blog - what sorts of posts are going to be helpful?

There are two prizes:
Commenter prize - One random commenter will win a first chapter critique or critique of a full picture book.
Follower Prize - One random follower will win a critique.
  • If we get 50 followers by the end of the contest, you will win a one chapter/one picture book critique.
  • If we get 100 followers by the end of the contest, you will win a two chapter/two picture book critique!
  • And if we get over 150 followers you will get a three chapter/three picture book critique!! 

All critiques will be done by Gemma Cooper, Literary Agent. Winners to be decided by random number generator. Competition closes on 21st February 2012.
(The above is taken straight from The Bright Literary Agency blog, so you need to click on the link and do your commenting over there! Although you're most welcome to leave me comments too, you won't win anything from me - not just yet anyway : ) )
Good luck!


  1. Thanks for letting us know about this, Ruth! :-) And though there's not much to say on this post, uhm... I like the pink bunny! Aren't comments nice?

  2. Wow great competition! Would definitely love some posts about query tips and how to create an emotive punch in the first chapter. :)

    1. That's actually a great idea for posts on THIS blog as well as The Bright Agency blog.

      I've got a few posts scheduled for this month, but I see a potential new series after the How I Got My Agent series ends!
