Website Reveal + Query Contest

That’s right. I now have an official website (www.mindeearnett.com). As with my blogger site, the beautiful header was designed by the ultra-fabulous Cat York. Working with Cat has been a grand experience, and I hope all of you go check out her website and then hire her to illustrate something gorgeous and fun just for you.

Aside from the header design, setting up the website has been an experience of frustration, pain, and ultimate triumph (I think/hope). So triumphant, in fact, that I’m holding a Query Letter + First 10 pages critique contest to celebrate.

It’s super easy to enter. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me you’d like to be entered (if you don’t want to enter, but would still like to comment, please go ahead, especially if you have something nice to say about Cat :).

There’s no requirement to follow me anywhere, although that is always nice. And it would be even extra nice if you mentioned the contest somewhere else like Twitter, Facebook, or your own blog, but again, not necessary. The contest will be open until next Monday. To the winner, I promise to give helpful, gentle, and encouraging feedback.

Good luck and happy writing!

P.S. My edits for The Nightmare Affair have arrived!!! Yippee!!!…off to the writing cave with me.
