To Contest or Not to Contest?

So Kindle is doing this writers contest right now and I am wondering if I should throw my hat in. It would be great if I won, but what are the odds? I have a book that would work, but it needs a lot of work. I have until November though so there is a chance that I could have it ready so what is holding me back?

It is because I am scared of not winning? That’s a normal response. Who likes rejection? Not me but that is the business of writing. you would think I would be a pro a accepting rejection.

Or what if I win, what then? It would be great but I would be handing my work to others and they might not take as good of care of it as me. I mean I have spent hours on this and the judges might spend a few minutes reading my work before they move onto the next. If I do win, did the judges really look at the work for what it is or not? I would hope so, but I don’t know. I mean to get a contract, that would be amazing and I would be in the real world of being an author and that is my dream.

What would you do? Would you submit something and hope for the best? Or would you not submit and just keep doing what you are doing? Some opinions would be good I think. Let me know in the comments below. 🙂

Want a Book Review?

I am now offering a service where you can request me to read a book you wrote and then leave an honest review on Amazon. I give fully HONEST reviews. If I didn’t like the book then you will know or you will know if I loved it. the plus side is that I don’t give anything under 3 stars because there is so much effort that goes into a book. Trust me, I know. So take a look at my guidelines and I look forward to reading your book.

How it works: With the form below, fill out your information and put the Book’s Amazon URL in the comment section, and submit the form requesting a review. I will then email you a link to pay for the review. I will then go and buy your ebook to be a verified purchase on Amazon.

I will email you once I have received the book. Give me 6-8 weeks to get the review up on Amazon and then I will contact you to see you would like to have an author interview sheet sent to you.

If you prefer to email me your book, then feel free to email a .PDF version to gracelynswritingcorner@gmail.com.

What does it cost?: I request $35 per review. To cover my time and the cost of actually purchasing your ebook in support of your writing career.

What do you get in return?: A fully honest review on Amazon and my blog. I also give the option to have a free author interview after I finish reading and reviewing the book.

Genres I don’t accept: Horror, Murder, Suspense, Bondage/S&M, and would prefer limited cussing. Otherwise, the genre is at my discretion.

Are you ready to be reviewed? Fill out the form and I will get to reading your master piece.

I Will Get to Writing About Books Again

I am so grateful with how patient all of my readers have been with me. I am sure you are getting tired about all my posts on my life and pregnancy loss, but, right now, that is where I am. I am still writing and I have the third book in the Potholes series being proofed that will be released this late spring god willing. If you loved Potholes of Hope and Potholes of Courage, you will love Potholes of Triumph. It’s the third piece in a four part puzzle of Nora’s life and how God is using her and those she loves to do His great work.

It’s really awesome and I can’t wait to share it with you. There will be more info as the release date gets closer (like actually pick a release date) and all the great things that come with it! 🙂

 

Potholes of Courage Release Date

Hello everyone! If you have been wondering what is going to happen to Nora Clark next, then I have some good news for you! I am so excited to announce that the second book in the Potholes Series is going to be released next Friday 9/23!!!! The Kindle edition will be ready for preorder as of this weekend if you want to get in line faster. I am so excited and I have been working with a great editor so that this book is ready and chomping at the bit for you to dive into it.
