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 an agent or editor. To enter the weekly query critique giveaway, simply follow the directions below. Good luck!

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. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity, this is my second attempt for this giveaway, third if last Wednesday wasn’t the 4th of July,
    Also my YA fantasy novel includes politicians which I think could be short for monkeys and the novel takes place in another world,
    So considering that my novel includes politicians from another world, meaning space monkeys, could that count for an exception? I hope it would!

  2. I'm finishing up revision and have a query ready. I'd love to have someone who's not one of my CPs critique my query.

    No space monkeys, but I talked to quite a few head monkeys while writing this query.

  4. Great opportunity, Kristi! Don't enter me because I just won a month ago. :)

    I'll tweet it though.

    1. Thanks, Sharon! Feel free to send your revised query if you want me to look at it before you send it out. :)

  6. Oh yes! I'd love to enter and thanks for the generosity! No space monkeys in my book, but there is a monkey. Thanks again.


  7. What an interesting way to solicit rejection...count me in!
