I've got to get writing my new story so I can enter your critique offers once again! I'm still puttering away at revisions on story you critiqued back in June.

Marcia said...

Barbara -- LOL, glad to be able to prod you! :)

I soooo want to enter, but better not. I have been blessed with two critiques since I "met" you. Good luck to everyone! Of course I will tweet this.

Hi Marcia, sorry for being really novice on this. But would a 4500 word lower grade novel qualify? It would intend to have numerous pictures throughout the book. (I'm not sure since there seem to be different thoughts on lengths for chapter books). Thanks.

Hi Marcia,

I'm wondering if you take emails from readers? I can't find a contact address on your site but wanted to ask you about ICL. Thanks!

Marcia said...

Emily -- Thanks. Just to clarify, are you entering? :)

Sharon -- Thanks for the tweet!

Janet, Joyce, Angelina, Rosi, and Janet, you are all entered, and thanks for the extra FBing and tweeting. :)

Anon -- Sure. You can include your younger novel. And yes, you can email me to ask about ICL. I have a contact page on my website, but you were probably looking for it on this blog? marcia @ marciahoehne dot com.

Marcia said...

Oops, correction -- Janet Johnson isn't entering. :)

Marcia said...

And Anon 2:42 is. LOL. Fear not, I'm really quite organized. :)
