MEGA GIVEAWAY! Many Pitch Wars mentors will give away first-chapter critiques … Updated with the winners!

The fabulous Mónica B. Wagner, author of FROSH: FIRST BLUSH, has put together a mega giveaway with some of our Pitch Wars mentors. Obviously, all the Pitchwars mentors are slotted into specific categories and genres. That keeps you from getting help from some great experts. But here is your chance to get help from a mentor you couldn’t normally submit to! Everyone can enter once and after that, if you help out a mentor by buying or preordering their books, you’ll get additional entries from them.

Some of the Pitch Wars mentors, including me, are hosting a chapter-critique Rafflecopter Giveaway! Anyone can enter. It will run until September 4, 2015!

Here’s the list of mentors that will participate giving a chapter critique:

Brenda Drake, author of TOUCHING FATE and THIEF OF LIES.

Mónica B. Wagner, author of FROSH: FIRST BLUSH.

Kate Brauning, author of HOW WE FALL.

Emily Martin, author of THE YEAR WE FELL APART.

N.K. Traver, author of DUPLICITY.

Helene Dunbar, author of WHAT REMAINS.

Joy McCullough-Carranza, who’s supporting Laura’s Shovan book, THE LAST FIFTH GRADE OF EMERSON ELEMENTARY.

J.A. Souders, author of RENEGADE~REVELATIONS~REBELLION

Elizabeth Briggs, author of MORE THAN MUSIC, MORE THAN COMICS, MORE THAN FASHION.

Kelly Siskind, author of CHASING CRAZY.

Trisha Leaver, author of THE SECRETS WE KEEP.

Jaye Robin Brown, author of NO PLACE TO FALL and WILL’S STORY: A No Place To Fall Novella.

Michelle Hauck, author of GRUDGING: BIRTH OF SAINTS and KINDAR’S CURE.

K.T. Hannah, author of CHAMELEON.

Stacey Graham, author of HAUNTED STUFF: Demonic Dolls, Screaming Skulls, and Other Creepy Collectibles.

Lee Gjertsen Malone, author of THE LAST BOY AT ST. EDITH’S.

Sarah Nicolas, author of DRAGONS ARE PEOPLE, TOO.

Brighton Walsh, author of CAGED IN WINTER, TESSA EVER AFTER, CAPTIVE and EXPOSED.

Stacey Trombley, author or NAKED.

Kate Karyus Quinn, author of (DON’T YOU) FORGET ABOUT ME, ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE, and DOWN WITH THE SHINE.

Here’s how this giveaway will work: you’ll get a free entry just for stopping by and signing in, and if you want to increase your chances, you can support the mentors by buying their books or pre-ordering them. If you want to increase your odds to get a critique from a particular mentor, you can go and buy/preorder said mentor’s book by following the links above. You can buy more than one book, and up your chances in more than one giveaway, too! You might even win a chapter critique by more than one mentor.
