LBLI Workshop Question

Post navigation

So I’m planning at least one workshop for Left Behind and Loving It but I’d like to do more than give away books and gift certificates. I’d like to do something that would help an author out.

Would the writers out there be more interested in me giving away a couple of query critiques or maybe me critiquing the first five pages of your work??? I”m totally game and would love to do this, so please leave your thoughts below!

Otherwise, it’s hotter than Hell here and the kids being out of school are totally throwing me off schedule.  Not to mention a tree fell on the house–we’re fine.  It wasn’t actually a tree, more of a branch–that’s as big as a tree and taking up half my back yard. Pics to come as soon as I find the camera cord.

At least I’ve been reading:

Shoot the Moon by Billie Letts

Wake by Lisa McMann (picked up Fade at Target this morning.  U would be proud-I only bought one book)

Red’s Hot Honky Tonk Bar by Pamela Morsi (which I got in the mail from Borders yesterday).  Yes I”ll admit it was the cover that caught my eye 😀

I told Jackie it’s really sad–I got two books yesterday, Wake and The Neighbor less than a week ago,  Need by Carrie Jones, which I still haven’t read, about a month ago and at least half a dozen from the UBS about five or six weeks ago.  In my defense I HAVE read some of them! LOL

Oh and HAYYYYYYYY My Pimpin Poobah vid is up at Ann Aguirres!

  1. Glad the tree didn’t hurt anybody! Lots of good stuff on your reading list. I just finished a Dean Koontz-a-thon and now need to move on to another genre.

  2. tree… falling… I visualize people ducking & running for cover… glad everyone is okay.

    YES I would love the 5pg critique.
    And any books ur giving away… 😀

  3. Charli love Koontz but haven’t read him in ages. I even have Odd Thomas sitting here in my TBR pile(hc bought brand new!) and haven’t read it *sigh*

    oh and HEY! BN.COM is doing free shipping on orders over 10.00!!! *sigh*

  4. Query or first five pages. Both type of critiques are valuable. I think you can blow your query but still wow an editor/agent with the first five pages. So, five pages. Not only that if you are a smart writer you can use those tips for the rest of the novel.

    Anyway, sorry to hear about the branch the size of the tree. Maybe you can cut it up and sell it as fire wood for cheap. I’m all about the bright side.

  5. Mel…..kept the wood for this winter. Hoping the garbage co will pick up all the scrap–they can be extremely picky!!!

    Duly noted RE: first five pages! I agree too! I know the query I sent to Holly was probably the least fave of all I’ve written but she still requested the material.

  6. Just a reminder — if you can still swing LB&LI, be sure to send me your link info so I can add you onto the list. 🙂
