Lisa Burstein: Pretty Amy Competition

If you’ve read Lisa’s YA novel Pretty Amy you’ll know that it’s a warm and deeply funny book. It’s aimed squarely at young adults rather than a crossover market, but it’s pleasantly free of bullshit. It’s as lacking in bullshit as it is in minotaurs, and I guarantee this novel features NOT A SINGLE ONE. THAT’S A PROMISE.

If you’re a YA writer you’ve read Pretty Amy not only because you’re quite into this sort of thing but because secretly you want to watch how the clever ones do it.

If you’re an unpublished YA writer you will be just a tiny little bit excited about this fantastic competition she’s set up!

PRETTY AMY MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE COMPETITION PRIZES

  • 3 Chapter Critique of your book by Lisa’s editor! (includes QUERY Critique with PRETTY AMY purchase)
  • 3 Chapter Critique of your book by Lisa’s agent! (includes QUERY Critique with PRETTY AMY purchase)
  • 3 Chapter Critique of your book by Lisa! (includes QUERY Critique with PRETTY AMY purchase)
  • $25 Amazon or Barnes and Noble Gift Card

The gift card is very sweet but I think we know that’s not why we want to enter the competition! Asides from the can’t-put-a-price on it value of the main winning prizes, we all buy books as often as possible from bookshops, surely?

Well done to all involved. A very cool competition indeed.
