*Please make sure to read the entire post*

This round is for "Anything".  You may enter a logline (up to 100 words), first page (up to 250 words), a 2 page synopsis (up to 500 words), or a query letter (up to 350 words, please omit personal information like your name and address, etc.  Just submit the "meat" of your query).  Your manuscript does not have to be complete to enter this round. 

From Monday, July 23, 2012 at 6 until Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 6, I will accept submissions. I will post them Thursday, July 26, 2012 by 4:00 PM EDT right here at KTCROWLEY.COM for critiquing.

Please send submissions to ktcritiques [AT]
In the subject, please state “JULY ANYTHING ROUND”

This round I will accept all genres and it is two entries per person, per genre/subgenre (So you can submit 2 adult, 2 YA/MG).  If you are entering two different items, please submit in two seperate emails. 
Please list the TITLE, GENRE and your SCREEN NAME (I will not include screen names in the critique posts, these are for my purposes only.  Your screen name is the name you'll use to critique others in the comments.) above your submission(s) (format it the way you normally would).  Please do not stop in the middle of a sentence.  If you're entry goes over the word limit by a couple of words, that's fine.  If you stop at say, 7 words under it, that's fine, too.

Your submission(s) should look like this:

SCREEN NAME: Your Screen Name Here
TITLE: Your Title Here
GENRE: Your Genre Here

(Submission here.)

Please leave out "chapter one," chapter "titles", etc.  Otherwise, I may count them toward your word count and you could lose some of your entry.

You will receive a confirmation email, but it may not be right away.  Only resend if you don't get one by the last hour of the submission window.

Please check your submission(s) carefully for typos, grammatical errors, etc. before submitting.  Once the submission is confirmed by email, it is set to automatically post.  Double checking it first will ensure you're writing is critiqued appropriately.  ;-)
If you enter once, you must critique at least 5 other submissions (if there are only five, please critique all entries).  This is so it's fair for everyone involved.  If you've entered twice, critique 10 or all that have been posted if there is less than 10. 
I will accept up to 30 entries.

THIS WILL BE THE LAST CRITIQUE ROUND FOR A WHILE, so please make it count!  I'm several weeks away from my delivery date and will be unable to host again until after the baby arrives.  I'll have a blog post up this week to update you all on what I've been doing and what will be happening.  ;-)
That’s it!  If you have any questions, please hit me up in the comments. 

Spread the word please; the more, the merrier!  Let's fill up this round and help everyone involved get as much feedback as possible.  Also, if you're not a follower of my blog, please do so, so I can continue to offer rounds like this to help writers like you perfect your work.  :)
