One of my friends did this when her book became available for pre-order, and I remember how helpful she was with my own book. So, I decided to do this too, and my agent jumped on board!
Every single writer who pre-ordered EERIE gets a 250-word (first page) critique from me and will be entered in a drawing on 15 Dec to win a first-page critique by my agent, Michelle Johnson of Inklings Literary.
All of my friends have been so supportive, especially the other writers who’ve trudged through the submission/rejection process with me, and I know (for me at least) the best thank you anyone could ever give me as a writer was some clear, honest feedback on my work.
Here’s how it works:
1) Did you pre-order EERIE for $2.99 before 15 Dec 2015.
2) Email me your first page (approx 250 words): colleen@ cmmccoy . com
3) Await your critique!
4) Obsessively check your email and the EERIE Facebook Party on 15 Dec, the EERIE release date, to see if you won the critique from Michelle!
The earlier you do this, the faster I’ll have your 250 words done.
THANK YOU for everything you guys! YOU ROCK!!
