Critique and First Chapter Contest

Ok, everyone, if you're following me on Twitter then you already know I have decided to offer a critique/first chapter contest once I reach 1,000 followers on Twitter. I thought it'd be a fun thing to do and also a nice reward for all the amazing writers who follow me :) I have some details now, but will give more specifics when I get to 1,000!

The plan is to create a post on my blog (which I will announce on Twitter) and give you guys a few hour window to reply in the comments section with your name, the title, genre and word count of your project, along with a two line pitch (children's only please!). I will pick three at random and have you guys vote for your favorite. I will then contact the winner and critique their query letter and first chapter. Also, for everyone else, I will read through all the pitches so some requests may also come out of the contest :) I just ask that you only post during the time frame (which I will give later on) and do not post after the window has closed.
