Trilogy Contest - Tremendous Prizes!

2010 was quite the year for us...

We started blogging
We made character sketches
We attended WriteOnCon
We outlined (or not)
We found each other as critique partners
We wrote and wrote and wrote
We ripped our WIPs to shreds and glued them back together

We blogged more
And we wrote

And we plotted!

You've all seen our teasers, the something that's coming from far away to shake up the blogosphere. Now, at long last, something is here. Something x 3. 

We're happy, excited, and thrilled to announce our Trilogy Contest. Your chance to win one of a gigantic stack of amazingly awesome prizes.

And here they are*:

3 x query or synopsis (max. 2 pages) critiques (winner's choice)
3 x first 300 words critiques
3 x first 3 pages critiques
3 x first 30 pages critiques

*For the picture book writers, Rach'll convert any of the above prizes into a picture book critique! And if you win a 30 page critique, she'll critique 3 of your picture book wips instead!!!

Rather have a book? We've thought about that too! If more than 50 people enter the Trilogy Contest, we'll share some of our favorites/dying to reads. 

So Marieke will give away a copy of... The Mockingbirds
I will give away a copy of... Unearthly
And Rach will give away a copy of... Across The Universe

To enter, you need to be a follower of each of Marieke, Rach's, and my blogs. You'll also need to fill out this form.

The Trilogy Contest will end on January 31 and winners will be randomly drawn and announced the following week (only one prize per person). We'll be giving extra entries to those who blog, tweet, or otherwise spread the word about the Contest. Just copy your links into the form (Of course, you can pop back anytime and fill out this bonus form to add extra points for additional blogs/tweets etc. But only after you filled in the original form, just so our heads won’t ‘splode with all the extra maths ;) ). 

'Cause you guys rock, there'll be an additional +10 entries for everyone who's a follower of all our blogs before January 11, so get in quick and follow along if you haven't already. And spread the word so your friends can have a chance as well.

Bet you thought we were finished. Well, we're not!!! We're throwing in a special bonus. For each of us that gets to 300 followers, we'll donate a $30 Amazon gift card to a random contest entrant who is also a follower of our blog. 

Is that fantastic or what! You may have noticed a little Trilogy theme here, more on that later...

For now, let the fun begin...


  1. Awesome contest!! I'm a new follower so enter me to win, please. :)

    Nice to meet you!

  2. OMG. Okay. This means work. I'm on it.

  3. I don't know if I'm eligible for your contest, but I've always enjoyed your blogs Tess.

  4. Just follow Marieke and Rach and you're eligible :) It's international too, so you don't even have to worry about such restrictions.

    All you have to do is fill out the form. It's easy, even if you don't blog about it, etc, you still get points just for saying you're a follower (old one, to all of you above, since it's not 11th of January already).

  5. What an awesome contest, I'm now a follower.

  6. I found your blog through goodreads from a review you did on Unearthly. Then I saw this awesome giveaway and signed up to all three blogs. I'm in Russia and can't buy Unearthly, so I'm really, really hoping that I win it!! Good choice, by the way. And I really like your blog.

  7. Thank i.e. I hope you win it too! I know what it's like to live in a place where you can't buy a book (okay, in my case it's ebooks, since not all Kindle books can be sold outside of USA or UK (all books there, actually). That leaves me with a limited selection for me Kindle and it sucks).

  8. Sounds like a fab contest. I am now a follower too. Look forward to getting to know you. :O)
