Yesterday I mentioned that I had almost 200 followers, and now I have exceeded that. (210 as of this writing!) Add in the fact that I finished my novel (and will soon be finished typing the novel), and I think it's time for a party! So come on in. Enjoy some virtual summer treats. Don't those look delish? I prefer the cherry limeade flavor. Mmmmm.
Now for a party game. (I totally stole this from Shallee McArthur. Go check out her blog too.) Here are some titles based on Facebook security phrases:
Make up a short pitch for a book based on one of these titles. Leave it in the comments if you like. (This is totally just for fun, not mandatory or anything.)
Now on to the prizes!
First of all for being my 200th follower, Melissa at Through the Looking Glass wins a chapter/short story critique from me! Congrats, Melissa and thanks for pushing me over the top. Email your chapter or story to angloft-at-gmail-dot-com in doc or rtf format, and I'll get right to it.
Now for some more lucky winners I have the following totally cool prizes:
Prize #1--Science Fiction/Fantasy Reading Pleasure Package
A copy of Mindflights Issue #5, which contains my novella, "The Bearer's Oath," and Unparalleled Journeys which contains my story, "Fidelity." Both of these contain many other great stories for your reading pleasure.
Prize #2--Christmas in July
A copy of Stolen Christmas and Other Stories of the Season, which contains my award-winning story, "Shepherds and Kings," plus a bag of my homemade English toffee, one of my favorite Christmas treats. Get a little Christmas spirit in the heat!
Prize #3--Manuscript Therapy
A critique of the first 50 pages of your manuscript from a published author and editor of a spec-fic magazine. (Um, that's me.)
To enter the giveaway, be or become a follower and leave a comment here. That's it. If you want to include your pitch from the party game above, cool. If not, that's fine. Make sure I have an email address or some other way to contact you, and if you have a preference in prizes, tell me that too. You're not required to promote the giveaway for me, but if you want to, it would be appreciated. The contest will run through June 30, and I'll pick three winners at random on July 1.
So, thanks for stopping by. Thanks for following the blog! While you're here, be sure to check out the sidebar for links to my published stories or for the latest features at Mindflights.
Thanks for partying with me!
