My friend Amie Borst is hosting a contest on her blog. The winner gets a query critique, Dove chocolate (my favorite), and a copy of Mockingjay! Even if you don’t want to enter yourself, I’d love it if you were to go follow her blog and say I sent you. If I win, I may even give away a copy of Mockingjay on my blog, because I know I’ll be buying one at midnight, free book on its way or not. 🙂 You won’t regret following her either–she says some interesting stuff.
Sadness and Woe–Losing your work
I recently read a post about someone who lost a chunk of her WIP by accident because she hadn’t backed it up recently. I use Dropbox, and I think every writer should. You download it to your computer, save your writing in the dropbox folder, and it automatically saves a backup online. If you delete it on your computer, it keeps the backup online. (Don’t worry, it’s secure too.) If you want to sign up, email me via my Contact Me page and I can send you a link that will get you more storage space online.
If anyone has a suggestion for a really fantastic steampunk YA novel, I’d love to hear about it. I already have Leviathan on my list, but will need some more. 🙂 Thanks!
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
