Readers, I am very happy to announce the launch of Bear and Black Dog Editing! B&BD is a new editing company run by myself and my business partner, Ash Yuhas (on twitter at @AshyAslan). Our goal is to help writers improve their skills through editorial critiques, and get their manuscripts ready for self-publication or going on sub to agents and publishing houses.
We have a wide range of services at all price points, from a full manuscript edit to a simple reader report, all of which are geared to raise the right questions and find the right path for the story. Check out our website or the “Editing” tab above for more info about us!
To celebrate our launch, I’ll be doing an all-day Twitter giveaway! JULY 2ND I’ll be on Twitter (@CaitSpivey) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, answering questions and doing hourly giveaways of a first five pages critique. Just follow @Bear_BlackDog or retweet my giveaway announcements as I post them to enter. Every hour (11, 12, 1, 2, 3, and 4) I’ll choose a winner, who’ll get a five-page critique right there and then.
That’s right. I’ll do the critique as soon as I get your pages. July 2nd will be the day of no waiting.
Just a few guidelines:
- If you’d like to retweet and spread the word, but don’t wish to be entered in the giveaway, just tweet at me to let me know.
- You can enter as many times as you like, but you can only win once.
- You can claim your prize at any time! I’ll do your critique as soon as I get your pages, but you can send your pages whenever it’s convenient for you.
- I specialize in YA and NA speculative fiction, but I’m happy to look at any pages, so feel free to enter even if that’s not your genre!
- This is open to any and all participants, as long as your pages are in English.
Any questions, please feel free to ask here, by email (contact at bearandblackdog dot com), or on Twitter. Make sure you follow both me and Ash, and our official B&BD account, for more updates and giveaways! See you and your pages July 2nd.
