Writing Perks -- Complete Your Draft Contest

This morning, I opened an email from the winner of Cindy Pon's ARC, Lesley. Thanks to her, I now know about the "First Annual Complete Your Draft Contest." You can be a newbie, be published, be aspiring -- it doesn't matter. The only requirement is that you write :)

Curious? Head on over to Anne Marie's blog and sign up -- if you desire -- for a chance to earn prizes while you finish your WIP draft this June. You can be at any stage with your novel, it doesn't matter: the point is to get the words in!! There are gift cards and book prizes to be won as well as a query critique from NYT best selling author Angie Fox of The Accidental Demon Slayer and The Dangeous Book for Demon Slayers fame.

Not only do you get a little nudge for completing your book, but you could win a prize for doing so! Consider spreading the word on your own blogs. After all, the more the merrier!

Hop on over -- check out the rules and regs, prizes and kudos. Hope to see you there!

More temptations to write the next thing. I will be strong though, and not start until I've finished the big history thing.

Hi Alex,

We're doing a little week 1 check in on the contest over at Anne Marie's site

Come share what you've done or just hang out and take a break and get to know the other fellow participants.

Hope to see you there.

I've just been checking out 'The Accidental Demon Slayer' & it sounds great fun. It has accidentally slipped into my amazon shopping basket. Amazon really ought to stack their shelves better - books are always slipping off the shelves & ending up in my basket. tsk!
