Query Critique Contest!

Yeah, it's been a little while since we've offered up a critique on Whoseewhatsit Thursday, but guess what?  It's BAAAAACK!  For you brave souls in search of pulls-no-punches feedback and willing and let us share your query on the blog, this is the contest for you.

Four of the Oasis Sisters - Ann, Larissa, Nikki and Jessie - are going to sit down with the winner's query and go over it with a fine tooth comb.  It will be like having ALL four of us as your bestest critique buddies.  We will send you 100% of the feedback and suggestions and post a sampling of our suggestions (to help others learn too) on the blog.

The winner needs to have a query that's ready for feedback. The contest will remain open until Monday the 17th.  We will select a winner, who needs to have the query e-mailed back to us by Thursday the 20th (that's 1 week from today, folks).  We will then take the next week to study your query and have the comments back to you (and some of them posted) on Thursday the 27th.

So who's got their game face on?  YOU CAN DO THIS!  Don't be scared.  All of us have put our own work up for public commentary on other forums, so we know how it feels.  We will be nice AND constructive.

Leave your name and e-mail address in the comments. Tell us if you follow us on the blog, Facebook or twitter and we'll give you an extra entry for each.  Winner will be selected using  If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, we will select a new winner (as you can see from the timeline, time is of the essence).

In the meantime, good luck to all who enter and happy writing!
