Hey guys!

Some of you may know that I am teaching an upcoming course on Writing & Selling the YA novel for Lit Reactor. I ran this course over the summer, and I had an ABSOLUTE BLAST working with 18 students. As an agent and author I don't always have time to work in depth with aspiring authors and this class gives me the perfect excuse to critique and discuss, and I LOVE that.

I've been getting comments on twitter that folks want to join the class but aren't able to pony up the $397 price tag, so I asked for permission to give away an extra seat, and the folks at Lit Reactor obliged, so here we are! I wish I had some magically fair way to give it away to the winner who most deserved it, but I'll have to go with a plain old game of chance instead. 

There are a few ways to win-- follow me, tweet the giveaway, and/or leave a comment. Each of those gives you one entry. (And I think rafflecopter allows you to tweet once each day for an extra entry!). 

Good luck and I'm so excited to work with the winner-- the course includes several lectures and four critiques, which cover 30 pages and a query letter, so I end up getting to know everyone and their novels pretty well.  

The contest is open until Wednesday, September 19, since the course starts September 20

Awesome! Classes are so motivating for me - it's hard to slack on your work when you have a teacher and fellow students counting on you.
