For the uninitiated, here is last year's DESCRIPTION AND SCHEDULE of the contest.
This year's Baker's Dozen dates are as follow:
October 29 and 31 -- Adult fiction (all genres except erotica and erotic romance)
November 5 and 7 -- Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction (all genres)
THE ACTUAL AUCTION DATE: December 3
(Please note: Some of you have asked me about the inclusion of NA. I will not know this until after I have my final list of participating agents. NA will be included only if at least 3 of the participating agents represent this genre. If it is included, NA will be grouped with the adult category.)
Very soon, I'll be contacting agents and getting everything set up behind the scenes. In order to help spread the hoopla this year, I'm asking for your help. Except, we're going to turn it into a little bit of a contest--because that's more fun.
I give you--The 2013 BAKER'S DOZEN BLITZ!
- The goal: Spread the word about this year's contest, both for those who might wish to enter and for those who would like to participate by critiquing or simply watching the fun.
- The means: Share THIS LINK in one (or all) of 3 places: 1. Your BLOG or WEB SITE; 2. TWITTER; 3. FACEBOOK, following the instructions below. Once you've shared, you will be eligible to win one of 4 LOGLINE CRITIQUES from participating MSFV Success Story Authors.
To participate on your BLOG OR WEBSITE, post the above link, plus your own blurb/thoughts/personal experience relating to the Baker's Dozen. Then, COME HERE under THIS COMMENT BOX and post the link to your blog post. TWO logline critique winners will be chosen from this list.
To participate on FACEBOOK, post the above link on your timeline. Then, LEAVE A COMMENT ON MY FACEBOOK POST in order to be eligible to win one of 4 LOGLINE CRITIQUES from participating MSFV Success Story Authors.
To participate on TWITTER, make sure you're following me (@authoressanon). Then, TWEET the above link to your followers, using the hashtag #BakersDozen2013 in order to be eligible to win one of 4 LOGLINE CRITIQUES from participating MSFV Success Story Authors. IMPORTANT: Don't forget to use the hashtag! It's the only way I will see your tweet in order to include it in the random drawing.
IN ADDITION, I will choose ONE winner from among all 3 venues to receive a $25 B&N gift card.
Yes, you may participate in all 3 places if you'd like. This will give you 4 chances to win a critique (2 winners will be chosen from the comment box here) and 3 chances to win the $25 B&N gift card.
The Blitz will run ALL WEEK LONG. I will count all entries up to 11:59 pm on Friday, and will announce the winners next Monday.
IMPORTANT: Remember to share THIS LINK, and not simply the link to MSFV (which would probably overwhelm anyone who's never been here before).
On your mark, get set, go! (And please post your questions below.)
