Wednesday Query Critique Giveaway

It's Wednesday Query Critique time! Remember to enter by midnight EST in order for your chance to win the weekly query critique.

REMINDERS: These critiques are for those who prefer a private critique versus a public one. Please read my prior post on Query Tips before entering. Also, as mentioned in my big giveaway, I tend to be very direct and picky, but my goal is to get your query in the best shape possible. Finally, the query is only the first step--make sure the entire book is as good as the query before you hit "Send." To enter the weekly query critique giveaway, simply follow the directions below. Good luck!

RULES:
Just leave a comment telling me you'd like to be entered in the giveaway and give your email address, using (at) and (com) as follows so the spam bots don't find you. 
I will use a random number generator to pick the winner who will receive a query critique through email. NOTE: If your query involves space monkeys, I might make an exception and do an extra critique!

  1. Kristi,

    Is the critique for all genres? I'd love to win a critique for a pb manuscript. (I'm going to tweet your post.)

    1. Liz--I've been a sucker for people who keep entering but don't win. When people have entered 5 weeks in a row and still don't win, I've been doing extra critiques for them. I'm not sure how long I'll keep doing it, but let me know once you enter 5 times. Good luck!

  3. Ill-fated at birth to be the trigger for Earth's Armageddon but also its salvation, Ian Black fails to develop the prophesied powers. Tortured at the hands of his guardians, the teenager hides among humans until an ambitious reporter exposes his secret to those who would kill for his connection to the Earth. Thrust in the middle of an ancient battle over the forces of nature, Ian and the reporter struggle to stay one step ahead of his so-called protectors and the ruthless enemy who will stop at nothing to harness Earth's destructive power.

    1. Dear technology-challenged friend--luckily, I know who you are and know your email which you DIDN'T include in your entry as requested. *tsk tsk* ;)

    2. I was in the middle of typing when I realized I had to go to my appointment early to fill out forms. A rush to finish. I swear! Of course, some technical difficulties may have played a role ...

  9. Dear Kristi,
    I would love to be entered in your stupendiferous giveaway and I’m hoping my lucky number 13 is on my side again.
    Thanks for your wonderful time and effort – I hope I’ve aced to instructions – they were somewhat scant, but then you are not really all about the rules are you? My email is jacky (at) hengistarcher (dot) co (dot) uk .
    Cheers
    Jacky
