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 contest! :) The course looks great. As an aside, how often will there be repetitions? It's not in my budget right now but I would love to partake in the future, esp. closer to my book release.

What an awesome opportunity! As a teacher and writer I don't have the funds to take one of your classes, but have always wanted to do so. I admire your writing style and would be able to learn so much from you. I am keeping my fingers crossed that our paths may meet.
