When I play soccer, I'm always reluctant to yell out that I'm open because then the other team comes and guards you. It's much better if your teammates look up and see that your open and pass you the ball without having to say anything.
It's the same thing with contests. Most contests require you to advertise, but this is like saying to your competition, come and take away my chance to score. Frankly I'd rather that no one else knew about the contest, because then I'd have a better chance to win. I know you've all thought the same thing.
Anyway there is an awesome contest going on with tons of books, signed and not, plus a forty page critique by a living and breathing agent. How awesome is that, see why I didn't want to tell you.
Go to Elana's blog for the books and Suzette and Bethany's blog for books and critique.
Please note: For those who are new to the blog, my above comments were completely sarcastic, or were they?
