The Pre-BEA Buzz Tour and Agentversary!!!

Dear readers, much excitement is brewing in my neck of the woods.  There are two awesome things coming up.  Big, wonderful, exciting things that I've been secretly planning for a while, and they involve you and prizes!!!

But let's start at the beginning.  One year ago, the fantastic Mollie Glick flew to Kansas City to take me to lunch and talk about Crewel.  Last year at this time I was fielding agent phone calls and emails and trying to make a very important decision.  That's right - it's my agentversary!  Can you believe it's already been a year, and that it's only been a year?!  Cra-cra-crazy!  To celebrate I'm holding  a mini writing contest on the blog next week.  All you have to do is pop by Monday through Friday and write a few lines inspired by the photo I'll post each morning!  Then I'll choose my favorites and with the help of some secret writerly peeps, choose a winner.  The prize?  A query critique from Mollie!.  Now I've seen Mollie critique a query and believe me this is not an opportunity you want to miss.*

That's not all, dear readers.  No, the fun is only just beginning.  As you may know Crewel is a BEA Buzz Pick, and I've chosen 5 bloggers to get a sneak peek.  From May 28-June 1st, they'll be hosting a Pre-BEA Buzz Tour with interviews, sneak peeks, and giveaways.  You do not want to miss this!


So have a lovely weekend.  The fun starts on Monday!


*Due to scheduling, Mollie is offering the critique for late June/early July so she can give it her full attention.


  1. Congratulations on your agentversary and all the excitement! Mollie is amazing (I think I would've given up on querying if it weren't for her) and I'm so excited to see Books Over Boys is part of your blog tour--Momo is the best! I'm really hoping to make it your signing at BEA. I'm dying to read CREWEL!

  2. Congrats on your anniversary. Looking forward to reading all the interviews. And getting an ARC. Have fun at BEA.
