To celebrate signing with the ever-fabulous Suzie Townsend and Danielle Barthel of newleafliterary, I have a special blog post for you on my regular website! Not only does it include part one of a super fun, very detailed chat with Danielle and Suzie, but there’s a giveaway at the end!

Some details:

  • Suzie, Danielle, and I are each offering one free, private query critique. (That means you don’t have to post your work on the blog for all to see if you don’t want to.)
  • Winners will be chosen randomly, but the more ways you enter, the more chances you have to win.
  • The deadline is January 26, so you have almost three weeks to enter and to spread the word.
  • Reblogging this post counts as one entry. (Let me know on the rafflecopter so I can give you credit! No giveaway blogs, please!)
  • So does following me on Tumblr, whether you’re a new or old follower. (Again, let me know on the rafflecopter. And, again, no giveaway blogs, please!)
  • Don’t need a critique for yourself? Transfer the prize to a query-ready friend if you win. Easy!
  • Winners must reply within 48 hours or a follow-up will be chosen.
  • No physical address or other details are necessary, but you must be willing to share your email address for feedback.
  • Questions? Leave them in the comments.
  • Thank you for reading/entering! Have fun and good luck!

See this post on my website for more details & for the rafflecopter.

New Leaf Twitter Pitch Contest!
Hey everyone!
The assistants of New Leaf are excited to announce that we’re hosting a Twitter Pitch contest. We’ll be looking for stand-out pitches–tweeted by all of you–on behalf of the agents at New Leaf!
The rules:

  • The window to pitch your book ideas is Friday, May 23rd from 1-3PM EST
  • Pitches are limited to 140 character tweets! Include the hashtag #NLpitchperfect
  • If your tweet is favorited by New Leaf, that means we want you to query us! Email your query (plus the first 5 pages of the manuscript, but please include this in the body of the email!) to query@newleafliterary.com with the words “Query” and “New Leaf Pitch Perfect” in the subject line.
  • We will be looking for manuscripts on behalf of Joanna Volpe, Suzie Townsend, and Kathleen Ortiz, so we’d love to see pitches for (fiction or non-fiction) MG, YA, NA, and Adult manuscripts. Please refer to our About Us page (http://newleafliterary.com/agents.cfm) for more details. 
We’re looking forward to seeing how creative you can get in 140 characters, and hoping to find some great new talent!
