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

I think it's great that you're doing this! If I had the money, I definitely would've signed up for the class.

Thanks again,

Thank you for the chance, Mandy

Free class
Hopefully I'm not accidentally entering twice, I had to create a LiveJournal account to leave a comment using my Twitter account... Anyway since my iPhone was returned to me (after I left it at the dog park) and since I won two whole bucks with my lottery ticket, I think Lady Luck is smiling on me so I'm entering.

This sounds absolutely amazing and I would love to win (as would everyone else, LOL) because alas, the class is a little out of my price range at the moment.
