Also, I've reached a few milestones. They seem silly but they make me happy.
*I finally hit 300 followers on my blog.
*I reached 800 followers on twitter.
*And 100 people I don't know personally, put me on their to-be-read list on Goodreads. (Thanks, everyone, it really means a lot to me)
In honor of all the support you guys are showing me, I'd love to give you something. I'd really love to give you all something, but that's impossible, so I'll pick two winners. The prizes. Your pick of one of the following:
1. A book. Any book. Your choice. I'd be happy if it were a Young Adult book and preferably a debut author, but I'll let you pick. Or I can send you my favorite book of 2011--Divergent by Veronica Roth (I should say, one of my favorites. There were so many good books in 2011.)
2. A partial critique of your manuscript. Up to 50 pages. Again, I feel most qualified to critique a Young Adult manuscript, but if you aren't a Young Adult writer and would like me to try my hand at something else, I won't turn you away. (If you win)
3. A query critique.
So that is my Thank You! offerings. Oh, rules. Um.....one entry for a comment, one entry for a tweet, and one entry if you blog about it (Please tell me how many entries you earned in the comments section). Contest ends next Friday, December 30th, at midnight.
****Contest Closed. Will announce winners Monday, January 2nd****
Yay! I'd love to be entered in your contest. I'd be thrilled to win your partial critique!!!!ReplyDelete

I would love a query critique even though I am on a query hiatus it wouldn't hurt to get a few advice and if I win any YA book would be great.ReplyDelete
Yay! Milestones and contests ROCK!ReplyDelete
I retweeted your tweet, does that count?
Hi, Kasie! I would love to win a partial critique. Working on the ending of a MS now, and would love to have another YA writer's take on the beginning. Thanks.ReplyDelete
I tweeted your awesome contest, too!
Thanks for the giveaway and congrats on the milestones!ReplyDelete
Retweeted and commented! Awesome milestones. Divergent is an AWESOME book. I loved it.ReplyDelete

Awesome giveaway! I definitely would love the ms critique! I retweeted about the contest from Natalie Whipple, from whom I found out about the contest in the first place.ReplyDelete
I just tweeted, I'm blogging about it tomorrow morning, and this, here, is my comment. :) That's three points for me. Now if I can just figure out which prize I want....ReplyDelete
A book! Thank you for the contest.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the follower milestones! :DReplyDelete

Woohoo--count me in!ReplyDelete
Sent here by Robin Weeks. I love a contest and have been on a winning roll. Also, I would love a critique.ReplyDelete
count me in. I will tweet or retweet, whichever works best.
DIVERGENT is an excellent book! Congrats on all the milestones. There are so many YA books on my TBR list, I'd probably take a book from you as a prize. Very generous of you. :)ReplyDelete
Kasie, I will give you all of my children (who don't even exist yet) to win a 50-page critique from you. Believe me, you want an army of Chinese children with enough shame to listen to you. I will provide this.ReplyDelete
Barring that, I have tweeted this, will blog it tomorrow when I'm less of a zombie (I'm in my final horrible work crunch of the year) and am commenting, offering you vials of my blood to win this.
+3 (maybe a bonus for supreme stalker creepiness?)
This is me commenting. Congratulations on being SO POPULAR. And Renee, too, congratulations to her again.ReplyDelete
I'd love to be entered in the contest. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Thanks, everyone. Will be closing the contest in about 12 hours. Will announce the winners on Monday!ReplyDelete
Sophia, you made me laugh very loud. I think I do want an army of your beautiful Chinese children. :)
That is all. ;-)

Make that 310 blog followers! Nice to meet you! I'll see if I can find you on Twitter, too, though I'm not much of a Tweeter.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, Kasie!
You've had a rocking good year. Congratulations! Would love to be entered in your contest. Thank you for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
