Two Year Blogiversary Giveaway!

Yes, that's right... two years ago today I sat down and started a blog. I never could have predicted the friends and opportunities that would come my way - in fact, I didn't think it would amount to anything. Over the last two years I've written three books, self-published an anthology, participated in countless bloghops, challenges and contests. All of it has been with the support and encouragement of you lovely bunch. Some say blogging is a dying art, but I hope not. I don't know of another medium where relationships can be built on this level, allowing for serious debate, laughter and learning. I wholeheartedly recommend any writer thinking about starting a blog to go for it without hesitation. We can always do with more friends!

So, my anniversary falls on a Friday this year. Good excuse for a party, eh? In celebration of my recently launched editing service, I'd like to offer some editing prizes to three lucky winners, as follows.

1st prize: Novel of up to 100,000 words proofread and copyedited.
2nd prize: Novella or short stories up to 30,000 words proofread.
3rd prize: Short story/ies up to 10,000 words proofread.

I'm doing it this way because I don't want to edit parts of novels and then have people feel obligated to pay for the rest. It would be great if you could indicate in the comments which prize you would prefer, so I can allocate prizes accordingly.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I apologise in advance if I'm not around too much - we're packing to go away on a big camping holiday next week, but thereafter I will be catching up. The kids are off school and we're taking the whole clan with dog in tow too!

Hi Nick. Congrats on your editing foray. Certainly a need for it I say as I read a blogger's book that obviously hasn't been edited by a pro. Hmm.

My internet is going crazy today so I know it'll stuff up if I try that Rafflecopter. I wish all entries well.

First, congratulations on your anniversary. Second, thanks for your generous presents to celebrate. But shouldn't you be getting presents? :-)

Crystal Collier said...

Yay, blogoversary! *tosses confetti* Super awesomesauce.

I'm, uh, bashfully recalling that I talked about exchanging first chapters with you a couple months back--looking for new critique partners. Then I landed a publisher and haven't done anything but tread water. But hey, if you're offering complete edits... ;)

I'd love to be entered, but I write novels and occasionally flash fiction, so there's my preference. I'm still up for exchanging one of these days--after the beginning of the year.

M. J. Joachim said...

Congratulations on your blogoversary, Nick! Enjoy your holiday :)
