adventures in critiques: part deux

Authonomy Update: 69. Annnnnnd....361 comments. Wahoo!

Another critique opp! Another critique opp!

I'm entering Pearl in a contest put on by Writer's Digest. Chuck Sambuchino (who writes their Guide to Literary Agents Editor's Blog) posted the contest recently and Pearl fits the category!

He's asking for the first 200 words, so I've honed and revised. (It's hard to get the gist of a story into 200 words. Hopefully, I did it.)

Then, if he and the agent judge like it, they are offering the top 3 entries a ten page critique and a year's subscription to WritersMarket Online. Woot! Woot!

Chuck has some great insights and tips on finding agents, the business of writing, querying, writing...and so much more on his blog.

Check it out at:


Or you can click on the Guide to Literary Agents link under Blogs I Like.

I'll keep you posted!

  1. I am excited to read this next critique. It's been really interesting to read other people's takes on the text. Pearl Edda is definitely an engaging book and I can't wait for the second one. Don't stop writing! I love your style.
