Well seems to be the season for contests, but I'm finding so many fun ones lately that I can't resist.
Because you know, I have so much willpower to begin with.
So this one for those unaware of it - and I think most people aware of the Show Your Voice Blogfest are already in this one too, haha - is hosted at YAtopia, and its simply a two sentence pitch and the first line of your manuscript. And since everyone seems to like the first line of Dust to Dust and I put boiling my book down to a two line pitch on the same level as Spanish Inquisition type torture, I decided I'll give this one a whirl too.
Dust to Dust
Micah is the youngest child in a family gifted with magic and cursed with a compulsion to kill each other on sight. And in his family, being the baby doesn't cut you any slack - it just marks you as weaker prey.
If you're not already completely tapped out from 'contest season', head on over and try and get your entry in as well!
