Call for submissions!

This week I'd love to provide feedback on queries and first pages! It will be first-come first-served, any genre. So if you're game, send your submission to unicornbellsubmissions@gmail.com. I'll take the first five that I think would make for good posts.

I'll publish your submission and my comments on the blog this week and our readers will be able to comment as well.

For more information on our submission process, go here.

I don't claim to be an expert, but I'm a published author (or will be on 3/2/13) and work for the marketing department of Curiosity Quills Press. Here are some of my past posts on querying and first pages so you can know in advance what I might comment on.

The Query Formula

Frightening First Page Fouls

I look forward to reading!

I would love to, but my query has been thoroughly dissected by many eyes already, and I looked at "Frightening First Page Fouls" and realized mine fails the two-character limit quite dramatically (eight people, eep!), so that needs a good reworking before anyone sees it. I hope others have more for you.

You've seen mine so much, I'm sure you are tired of seeing it. I *hope* you seen some improvements!

I don't have a query ready, but you're more than welcome to read the first pages of my current WIP. ;-)
