Get Your Work Critiqued!

Lisa Burstein is celebrating the release of her novel Pretty Amy by having a totally awesome contest.

She's giving away 3 chapter critiques: 1 from her, 1 from her editor, and 1 from her agent!

AND she's giving away a gift card for Amazon or Barnes and Noble worth $25!

For more information about the contest and Lisa and her books, just click here.

While you're debating clicking the link (and I won't be upset if you don't; you're my competition!) please admire the cover and synopsis of Pretty Amy.

Sometimes date is a four-letter word.

Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she’s somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands—earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx—Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating “rehabilitation techniques” now filling up her summer. Worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing—like she is nothing.
Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it’s worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy. Bringing readers along on an often hilarious and heartwarming journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.

Sounds good, right? Now, go check it out! And, if you're interested, try and get your work critiqued. Good luck!
