The date of the blogfest HAS CHANGED. I completely forgot that I was assisting the Authoress, who hosts the Baker's Dozen Agent series.
The prize of the blogfest will be a $15 Amazon gift card. I'd like to think everyone has switched over to a Kindle (because it's what all the cool kids are doing...), but the gift card should sate any reader's addiction.
You can receive up to 3 points for the blogfest. Here's how:
1 point -- Sign up and participate. Please make sure the link to your blog is accurate. We don't like broken links that send us in to the Blogger Beyond.
1 point -- Share the blogfest badge and/or post about the blogfest. Please place all links to posts and tweets in a comment at the bottom of this page.
1 point -- Follow my blog. I trust you, so this is a given point. Aren't I sweet?
All points will be randomized into a number generator at the close of the blogfest.
To refresh from the previous post, here is the criteria to submit:
Date: February 13, 2012
Where: In My Write Mind blog, and your own
Objective: Post your 500-1000 word hook and critique other hooks posted by participants
Suggestive topics to consider when critiquing:
- Does the character have a personality I can fall into easily? This includes any dialogue exchanged.
- Is the world around them set up to compliment the character as they're introduced?
- Are there secondary characters to assist with the hook?
- Lastly, would I read more?
Finally, your sign up link. I hope to see many of you here on February 13, 2012!
Peace and Writing Love,
