Rachele Alpine of Frecklehead Hosts a Cool Contest

YA Author, Rachele Alpine, is hosting a cool contest over at her blog, Freckle Head.

Rachele's YA novel, CANARY, is currently on submission. Her agent is Lina Sion at Global Literary Management.

Rachele is offering to critique 10 queries and draw two winners for a 30 page manuscript critique. Besides being an author, she's a high school English teacher and MFA student so she has lots of lit experience, not to mention, she's living YA everyday!

The Rules:

1) You must be a follower of Freckle Head.

2) If you'd like the chance to have Rachele look at your query letter or manuscript, post your hook in the comment section of her blog by midnight Wednesday (April 21).

3) You can have an extra chance at being drawn each time you tweet, blog or Facebook this contest (just post which you did in the comment section)

Rachele will draw ten winners randomly for query critiques and two winners for the 30 page manuscript critique.


Another "must read" is Matthew Rush's dynamic blog, The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment. Today Matthew interviews Rachele and has posted the actual query letter that landed her an agent! Congrats Rachele & thanks Matthew! Matthew always has an interesting blog & he's cute too!

Rachele (who is totally awesome) also did a guest blog post on my blog today. This one is query submission gold folks so make sure to visit.

In it she shares her ACTUAL query and the correspondence that landed her her agent. It's a great real life example of what TO DO.

Thanks for sharing this Cynthia!
