Okay, I only get to be the Supreme Dictator around these parts on Thursdays, but it's always been my life goal to be a dictator so I'm milking it for all it's worth. I'm going to have to find myself a cool uniform. Maybe something red. I like red.
Since L.T. and Bane did the head sharing format for their intros, I thought Matt might want some company with the dossier. And really, I talk to myself enough as it is. (My dad tells me the only time he can have an intelligent conversation is when he talks to himself. He's cool like that.)
So here's some random info about me:
Age: 29. So long carefree 20's. Hello responsible 30's. Sniff.
Location: Alaska. Yeah, you know you're jealous. Except for the fact that I still have another month of winter. Blecch.
Favorite Active Activity: Yoga!
Favorite Vegetables: Heirloom tomatoes from my greenhouse
Favorite Country Visited: Egypt. Obviously.
Least Favorite Country: I can't even follow my own rules. I'm not going to pick a country because I absolutely detested Siena, Italy. And everyone else under the sun loves it. Whatever.
Favorite Book: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Favorite Writing Book: On Writing by Stephen King
Favorite Writing Quote: "The first draft of anything is sh*t." -Ernest Hemingway
There you have it- a little snippet of me. Next Thursday I'll be posting my interview with agent Mark McVeigh. Yahoo!
And don't forget about the CONTEST!
- You follow us: We follow you.
- From here on out, you can "save up" for the prize of your choice. You can:
- Send 5 more followers our way (you have to keep track and send us their names when you reach your goal): All of us take turns critiquing your query or the first five pages of your manuscript.
- Send us 10 followers: We'll take turns critiquing your first chapter.
- Send us 20 followers: We'll take turns critiquing your first 50 pages.
Now, these are "rolling" prizes-- basically, you can send 5 people our way, claim the query critique, then send another 5 people and get your first five pages critiqued, -or- you can "save up" the first five until you have the second five to get the first chapter critique. Confusing? Probably. We'll clear up any questions you might have in the comments.
We'll be doing this for two weeks. You have til midnight Pacific on Monday, March 29th, 2010 to send your list of followers to alliteratiarchives[at]gmail[dot]com.
