My Giveaway, My Critique Partner, and The Sequel

So Many Updates Today!

First Up:  My Giveaway!

You all are so freakin' awesome!  The giveaway has been going great so far and I want to thank everyone who has entered and welcome to my new followers!  There's still three weeks left to enter and there is no doubt in my mind that there will be a winner.  Remember I'm giving out a choice of Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Love Story by Jennifer Echols.  And I fixed the link on the comment (Thanks Shawna!) of my excerpt from The Crimson Hunt and you get 10 entries if you comment so go for it, but be constructive or it won't count!  So keep spreading the word.  The Giveaway ends 2/3!

Second Up:  My New Critique  Partner

So I have been stressing about this for a while now, but I finally have a critque partner for my novel!  Everything is going great and she is a New Adult writer like me!  It's fate.  She found me on the forum which I highly recommend to anyone who is writing any kind of romance whether it be YA, Adult, New Adult, or Erotica.  It's an awesome resource.  Her story is awesome and I am having a blast editing her work and she really likes my story as well.  Oh, for those of you who don't know your critque partner is your lifeline as a writer.  You may have a story, but your partner finds what's wrong with your story before you contact agents and go through all the crap to get published.  So I am so relieved to have found one!

Third Up:  The Sequel

I have been blogging about my sequel for a while and with the last 100 pages to put into the computer to edit I finally decided to post a line from the book.  I was going to do a full scene, but since you haven't read the first that would just be spoiling wouldn't it??? So here's a sample:

From The Bringer's Quest:

       8/20/12 - This excerpt has been taken down to prepare for release! Thanks everyone :)

Wow . . . fan's self.  Hot boys, gotta love them!  This is from the point of view of my heroine Ariel.  The series is Upper YA/New Adult Sci-Fi Romance.  Check out "The Crimson Hunt" tab for more details on the first book!

Nice on finding the critique partner! I've never been able to find one so hopefully that will happen soon. And I will definitely check out that website (I write YA)

That place is seriously amazing. There are published authors who give you advice in the forums it's a huge community of people who write romance. I actually posted a comment on my partners thread and that's how she found me. There is also a whole section where you can post a listing for partner so definitely check it out. Also check out your local chapter of RWA that's also a good way to find one. You should post an excerpt of your work I'd love to read it:)
