Writer Spotlights - Contest 411

Welcome! Here's where you can get all the info on any contests I might run (though I haven't had any yet, I will) and on the Writer Spotlight series. .
  • Please read the directions carefully as there are specific guidelines for both.
  • Then--contact me via email PaulaKayMac (at) comcast (dot) net.

Writer Spotlight 411:

  • Are you an unpublished, unagented children's fiction book writer, (self-published books do count)?
  • Do you have a completed, or nearly completed, manuscript you are/or soon will be querying to agents/editors? Can be MG, YA, chapter book, picture book, free verse.
  • Are you willing to share the manuscript, pitch the manuscript for the interview (see prior interview questions, they are all the same, mostly)?
  • Do you have an internet presence (just one is okay): blog, facebook, twitter.
  • Are you a follower of my blog?
  • Please note: I hold the right to deny an interview as I see fit.
If you answered yes to all of the above, please do email me at PaulaKayMac(at)comcast.net and I will put you in the interview cue. YAY!!!

By agreeing to participate in the spotlight, you understand that I will cut and paste your answers as is into the post. I do not edit, spell-check, critique, suggest because I know you all are awesome and probably know more than me : )  I do reserve the right to deny an interview for whatever reason.

Please be sure to come back and let me know when you’ve found that dream agent/editor so I can shout it out and celebrate blog style!!

Good luck!!!
