The winners of the effective editing series have been chosen! Last Friday the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) Group, the Savvy Wordsmiths did the honors. Notifications have been sent to the winners, and now it’s time for the rest of the world to hear!
Everyone who commented had their names, and which in the series the comment was from, dropped into a Santa hat. Special thanks to SCBWI members Karen, Ann, Mary, AnnaMaria, and Mike for drawing the winners! Extra special shoutouts to Joan and Becky our FAB leaders!
I mentioned in the effective editing series intro that a few lucky commenters would win editing packages. So here’s how it will work: Each post is another opportunity to win – winners will be chosen based on comments, the names will all be thrown into a hat and drawn by someone other than me.
The packages up for grabs are:
- one pitch edit (may substitute bio) up to 300 words
- one page query or cover letter edit (please only one page)
- first ten pages edit (or complete work if under 6,000 words)
- one synopsis edit (or proposal) up to twenty pages
- one grand prize of three chapters or up to 100 pages edit
And when I say edit, you know what I’m referring to, because you’ve read the hierarchy chart.
You will automatically be entered into this giveaway by commenting, one comment per post. Contest closes two weeks after the last post (estimated November 16, 2012). Every attempt will be made to notify winners first by email (based on valid email associated with comment tag). Acceptance of prize constitutes permission to use winner’s name and photograph for promotional purposes, unless prohibited by law. Prizes cannot be claimed in cash value, and all contractual agreements will be made in advance for completion. Submissions of work will be due after the first of the calendar year 2013, to allow winners time to properly format projects. The entrant named on the comment section of this blog will be considered the winner.
