If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you know I don’t do a lot of promotion. But I’m willing to make exceptions when I believe in something's worth. That’s why I jumped at the chance to talk about My Book Therapy’s amazing contest, The Frasier.
As a sometimes struggling, often uncertain, hungry-to-learn, but yet still unpublished writer, I know the importance of a good contest. And The Frasier is at the very top of my list.
I’d heard great things about the Frasier last year, so I decided to enter. A few months later I received a call from Susan May Warren (eek!) telling me my manuscript was a finalist in the contest. The best part was all the tremendous feedback I received. The judges clearly took care and time in handling my story in a respectful manner and giving me plenty of ideas to keep me moving forward.
All writers need to get comfortable with our work being in front of others. If you’re unsure which contest to enter, choose the Frasier. You can be confident your manuscript is in compassionate, experienced hands.
Entries for the 2013 MBT Frasier Contest for unpublished novelists will be accepted through Sunday, March 31, at 11:59 p.m. The contest is open to Voices members. The winner will receive a scholarship to a My Book Therapy coaching retreat ($500 value). Final round judges are award-winning author Susan May Warren; literary agent Steve Laube; and Shannon Marchese, senior fiction editor for WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
