Weather fit for napping - or critting...

photo credit here Nap how I want



It's minus thirty four wind chill outside. That's -34 C. Winter has arrived. And that means it's time for DOGSLED RACES!!!

Or napping.

Or writing.

And since I'm not doing any of those lately, I'd like to use this weather as an excuse to celebrate my good fortune of selling ICE DOGS to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

I didn't do it alone! I had lots of help. And so...

I'm offering to critique the first three YA or MG chapters of the first three people who comment.

  • Must let me know in the comment that you would like to take me up on the offer.
  • Either send me your email address, or leave it in the comments.
  • Must have chapters ready to send right away.
  • I'll send it back to you within three days of receiving your chapters.

edited: I had no idea that would go so fast! Sorry - offer is now expired. I have my victims volunteers already!

Send me your chapters!

I will absolutely do this again the next time I have a few days free.

Thanks everyone!

I don't have anything to critique, nor do I write in those genres, but I can tell you congratulations again!
And that dog is OUT.

What a great thing to offer and that dog looks mighty comfortable. I've experienced cold weather, but I don't think I've experienced it that cold. Stay warm.

Have a great week.

That is so sweet of you to offer! I can't even imagine living where you do. Sounds cold! Definitly the opposite of my days here in Florida! Stay warm.
