The Slush Pile is a new blog, and to launch the blog, there is a contest. I know slushy_one from another blog, and have promised to keep his/her identity secret.
The contest sounds pretty cool so I entered (plus Slushy gives a great critique). You can get your first 250 words critiqued by Slushy and other posters on the site, and you have the chance to win a slushy_one critique of your first chapter . . . plus a $25 gift card to Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.com.
I know how you all love contests so go to The Slush Pile for details.
And don't forget that if you post about Slushy's contest on your blog and leave a comment on my previous post or even THIS post with a link to your post about Slushy's contest, you'll be entered in a drawing for a $25 gift card from Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.com . . . but you have to hurry because my promotional contest ends on Monday, May 11th (as soon as I get home from work . . . which will be about 4:00 Arizona time . . . which is 7:00 EST . . . I think . . . darn time changes always mess me up)!
And while you're at it, enter Slushy's contest for your chance at a critique! And, believe me, Slushy's critiques are amazing!
So if you win Slushy's contest AND my contest, you'll end up with TWO $25 gift cards!! That could buy some fun stuff.
