Interested in having one of the Historical Novel Society’s published authors review the first two pages of your manuscript? If so, please type out the information requested below and email it to editor Jeri Smith, our coordinator, email@example.com.
The DEADLINE for submissions is MAY 25, 2013!
Note: even if you already indicated on your Registration Form that you wanted to submit pages to the Blue Pencil Cafe, you need to send this information to Jeri.
Reviewers who have already volunteered do not need to submit this information unless they, too, wish to have pages reviewed. If you are a published author and would like to volunteer to be a reader/reviewer, please email Jeri at the address above.
Jeri will contact you to coordinate getting your manuscript to a published HNS author to review, and then set up a time to meet with her or him at the conference. Your critiquer will read and review your submission before your meeting. Is the reader immediately engaged in the story? The true test, of course, is if you can hook the reader in the first two pages. You will have a chance to meet with your critiquer for 15 minutes, so think of good questions.
Please give us this information:
- Cell phone number:
- Title of your novel:
- Three questions you are burning to ask the published author
- The first two pages of your manuscript
Once you return this information to Jeri, she will contact you. We look forward to talking to you about your project!
Remember, the DEADLINE for submissions is MAY 25, 2013!
