That's right, you read it correctly.
But of course we have details. You didn't think it was going to be that easy did you? ;-)
Because we are a writing blog, we want to help you take your craft to the next level and we are very excited to have our guest, Rachel, do that, not just for one of you, but for all of us!
Now before Rachel hyperventilates at the nightmare of us all flooding her inbox with our 1,000 word excerpts, let me explain just a bit more.
The winner will send 1,000 words (and no more) of their story (a choice of a work in progress that you have) to Rachel, who will do therapy to the section. Once her magic is complete, Rachel will send it back to me...to then be posted here on the blog for all of us to learn from.
(side note: if you are the winner and don't wish to have your name on the section to be posted live on our blog, then please notify me when I email you the winner's details.)
This option does NOT come around very often. In fact, you really don't see this period, so I suggest you take advantage of this amazing opportunity!
**~The contest details~**
An example of a pitch would be: All Jenna Hutch wants is a chance at normal newlywed bliss. But a haunting past and the secret of an unborn child threaten to unravel the fragile hope she has placed in tomorrow.
This was the pitch/ log line for my first contemporary novel , Releasing Yesterday.
We're looking for 1-2 sentences that sums up your story. Good things to include is: main character, story question and the main conflict
Since Rachel is a fiction author, we are going to default to fiction being the stories to be pitched in this contest.
Your pitch will be judged by the Alley Cats and may the best pitch win. :-)
This contest will be open until NEXT TUESDAY, January 24th with the winner announced in that Saturday's weekend edition, so you do have a *little* bit of time to perfect your pitch and get it submitted.
Woo-hoooo! It's an Alley first and we're super excited to have this opportunity to share it with you!
Inspire greatness and let's make this a slam-dunk success!!
