Editing Giveaway Contest

C.A. Marshall is giving away a Substantial Edit of a mss on her blog! She is a Freelance editor, YA writer and literary agent intern. I seriously need this service. I've been going over the numbers for the book I'm publishing, and it looks like it will put me in the red, mostly because of the cost of editing. Oh, to have a free edit... *grin*

By substantial, she means plot, characterization, etc. up to 100,000 words. My anthology is rather less, and Dindi is bit more, but I still think it's a pretty cool prize.

And you know what, beta readers? Thinking about this contest made me realize how much this is worth. I LOVE YOU.

Okay. Enough with the mushy stuff. Resume work.


She used Google Forms to make this cool form thingy. I want to learn how to do that.

I'm a man of high hopes and low tech so I'd like to know how she did it, too. Thanks for visiting and following my blog.

Have a great end of week, Roland

I never win those things either, but one can hope. :_)

Jai Joshi said...

Cool! I hope you win it, Tara.

Thanks for the blog post Tara! It's really easy to use the google docs forms! They even have templates to help make them all pretty! Plus it saves having to add up all the entires later on!

Go to and click "create new" < "form" and then follow the directions! It's really that easy!

Awesome! Thanks for the info! I just figured out how to use the Google Doc forms today. I'll be using one for my Cinders blog tour. :)
