The giveaway for one free edit of a MG/YA manuscript is over. This morning I used Randomizer.org to select the winning entry. It’s my pleasure to announce the winner: LAURA CHESTERSON, with her middle grade manuscript Rebel Magic. I look forward to working with Laura and learning what’s so rebellious about her hocus pocus.
Thanks, everyone, for celebrating with me! There’ll be more giveaways to come—after all, I still need to celebrate the Writing Young Adult Fiction for Dummies publication, and my National Book Award win and my Nobel Prize in Literature…. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Tomorrow, I’ll post a question-and-answer about a not-so-sneaky but really-darned-useful way to know what editors are buying and from whom . . . and sometimes for how much.
