I'm hosting my first ever blogfest, and I would love for you all to participate and/or share this with others you think might want to participate. This will be a chance to showcase your favorite character. (If you can manage to narrow it down to one! ;)) This will be a blog hop: an excellent chance to get to know other bloggers, check out some great snippets, and share your own.
The blogfest runs from January 23-25.Here's how it works:
1. Decide which of your characters you'd like to introduce everyone to, and choose a snippet about this character (preferably no more than 200 words) to share about this character. (A snippet from your manuscript would be awesome, but if you're not comfortable with that, you can choose to do a character sketch--something to show us your character and writing.)
2. Between January 23-25, tell us who your favorite character you've written is and why and post your snippet.
3. Hop around to other participants to check out their favorite characters and a bit of their story.
The lovely Melanie Billings, Acquisitions Editor at Whiskey Creek Press, has graciously offered to supply critiques as prizes! Winners will be drawn from the list of active participants after midnight on the 25th and announced on my blog on the 26th.
