The giveaway for one free edit of a picture book manuscript is over. This morning I used Randomizer.org to select the winning entry. It’s my pleasure to announce the winner: JENNIFER CARSON, with her picture book manuscript Stinking Beauty. I look forward to spending time with Jennifer and finding out what’s so smelly about Beauty.
Thanks so much to everyone for a fun first six months! I love sharing what I’ve learned in the book biz trenches, and your questions keep me on my toes. Keep ‘em coming, along with your tips, thoughts, and anecdotes in the comments section. Learning from others’ experience is what this website is about. And hey, if you’ve got a hankering to call me with a question, author Katie Davis is offering that chance: You can call her toll free number 888-522-1929 and leave a message with a question that I can answer through her podcast “Brain Burps About Books,” which we’ll be taping in November. I’ll post an update when that podcast is available for listening. Tomorrow, I’ll post a question-and-answer about reality TV stars and the YA fiction market. As they say in the boob tube biz, stay tuned….
