I'm not sure how many of you are writers. (Hopefully there are some that follow me!!) But there are A LOT of contests going on in the blogging world. I wanted to share everything that I've seen pop up--and I'm sure there are tons more I'm missing. If you know of one, post it for me in the comments!
Lynette Labelle is offer a query/opening page critique. All you have to do is follow some of her blogs and spread the word. So check out this one! Lynette will even be teaching a class about hooks in April. You can get more information on that here.

Our first Conference, held August 10-12, 2010, had over 11,000 attendees." Click HERE to read the story in Publisher’s Weekly and HERE to see the about on the website.
