CJ Redwine is the author of DEFIANCE, out 8/28/12 from Balzer+Bray/Harper Collins. You can read all about her on her blog, and you can feast your eyes on her freshly-released book cover right here:
CJ will be reading and critiquing the entries, and will then let me know which she feels are the TOP FIVE. These 5 winning entries will be invited to submit the FIRST 500 WORDS of their manuscripts for public critique. A prize in and of itself!
The 500-word excerpts will post on March 13. If you have any further questions, please post them in the comment box.
The fun begins tomorrow!
(Oh, and incidentally? Mr. A read all 30 entries [which made me insanely happy] and chose his top five: #2, #11, #16, #18, and his favorite was #25. So there you have it. Induction into the wee "Mr. A Hall of Fame". Or something.)
