BOOK-COVER-HIGH-RES-LarasGift copyLeave a comment and share this post on some social media platform to win a FREE copy of LARA’S GIFT. For every share or comment, your name will be entered into a hat similar to the one Lara is wearing on the cover.

The winner will be drawn by the “real” Zar and announced September 5, 2013 on Quirk and Quill. 

While there are many people I have thanked in the author acknowledgement pages, including my fellow S3Q2 Quirk and Quill classmates, I’d like to especially thank Deborah Halverson for offering a free manuscript critique when she launched her blog, DearEditor.com. I was the lucky recipient of her generosity and benefitted greatly from her insightful comments.

Dear_Editor_Twitter_logo_3_1200dpiTo celebrate the August 6, 2013 pub date of LARA’S GIFT, Deborah Halverson has generously offered to giveaway another free manuscript critique. So if you have a manuscript that you’d like to strengthen before you send it off to an agent or editor, be sure to check out the DearEditor blog on August 6, 2013 to learn how to participate.
