Fantabulous Followers Giveaway

You could win a submission/critique from an agent!

In celebration of our fantabulous followers, and in the spirit of paying it forward, we are having a super giveaway! Five fabu prizes for our five hundred followers. We love you guys!

Here are the prizes:

Suzie Townsend, literary agent extraordinaire with FinePrintLit, has consented to give to the grand prize winner a 40-page partial submission PLUS a critique of those pages! (We know! INVALUABLE!)



Kimberly Derting, author of THE BODY FINDER (release date 3-16) has donated an awesome Body Finder black totebag (perfect size for a whole stack of library books), a signed-in-silver poster, autographed bookmark, and sticker for one lucky winner! (Check out the Literati Blog for pics!)



The book THE HOST, by Stephenie Meyer. Need we say more?






HOW TO WRITE THE GREAT AMERICAN ROMANCE by Katherine Lanigan makes writing almost easy! The step-by-step guide can easily be applied to writing fiction of any genre.




Ever had Enstrom's Toffee? Seriously, the most delicious confection EVER. Suzette's husband flew to Colorado to pick up this 4 ounce box, and we are giving it away to one lucky winner!



It's super easy to enter.
  1. Follow our blog (widget right over there ---->)
  2. Follow Elana's blog (she has a BUNCH of books she's giving away!)
  3. Fill out the form below.

Contest ends Sunday, March 14, 2010 at 10pm MST. Good luck! :)

With 752 followers you are a house-hold brand name!!! ^.^

More than that! what is this? I think you have an army at your disposal! muhahaha! Could you imagine the havoc you could cause with a battalion of 752 people?

This is so wonderful that you have such a following!

Lisa and Laura said...

You girls absolutely ROCK! And I want that toffee now. That's all.

Angela said...

VERY cool prizes!!! I followed, I joined, and I blogged. Now--I wait :-) .

Suzette Saxton said...

Thanks for the late-night laughs, everyone! To answer questions:

Just one entry per person, though I do appreciate all the publicity you guys have been giving this. :)

The contest IS international.

And as Suzie is look at the first 40pgs, you should at least have your first 40 completed, LOL. It would definitely help to have your whole novel done in case she wants to see more.

You can remove me from the eligibility pool. (No, it's not because I have an agent.) Just thought I'd let you know.
