Contests and Drawings

I know a number of my subscribers have found their way here from the QueryTracker Blog, but I want to make sure everybody knows about some upcoming contests and drawings


Joanna Stampfel-Volpe of Nancy Coffey Literary will be judging one-line hooks on the Blog on Monday, April 13th at 9am through Tuesday, April 14th at 9am. You can get more information to help you get ready here.

The Knight Agency is doing something similar with their Book in a Nutshell contest. You describe your completed novel in 150 words or less (about 3 sentences) and you could get your work requested by one of the agents. Hurry -- the deadline is April 20th!

Miss Snark's First Victim will also be running a Secret Agent contest on Monday, April 13th. Check MSFV for rules and how to enter!

Finally (for now!): On April 23rd, I'm going to be interviewing Steve Weber, author of Plug Your Book! Online Book Marketing for Authors over at the Blog.  I'll also be holding a drawing over there for a chance to win copies of his book -- more details when I figure them out! ;-)  I recently finished reading the book and liked it a lot, so I sought him out for the interview.  He's been great to work with, and I'm looking forward to getting some copies to my readers!

    Is it a bad idea to post ur query or on-liner on a site?! ...I would think it would leave u vulnerable to someone stealing ur concept. Is there protection for that?! I'd love to get comments on my stuff-that would be so valuable.

    Hi Pen Pen -- No, I don't think there's much danger in posting your query or especially your one-liner on a site. Obviously you want to stay away from putting up several chapters or a whole novel, but don't worry, nobody's going to run off and write the exact same novel as you. Hope that helps! :-)
