"The Hangover" Round 1 submission window now closed! Enter Round 2 NOW!

So with Round 1 filling up like a jug under a running tap (thanks!), and with over 300 people seeking an opportunity for critique on their Baker's Dozen 2012 entry, I've decided to open up another round of "The Hangover".  Why?  Because I love you guys so much and want nothing but success for all of you, just like the amazing Miss Authoress Anon.  

Here we go!

Please continue to send submissions to ktcritiques [AT]  Window closes at 10 PM EST on Saturday night, December 22.  I will post the second round of entries on Wednesday, December 26, at KTCROWLEY.COM for critiquing.

In the subject, please state “BD ENTRY 2".

Submit your logline and first 250 words just like when submitting to Miss Snark's First Victim.  Your submission should look like this:

TITLE: Your Title Here
GENRE: Your Genre Here

(Logline and first 250 here).

A confirmation email will be sent, but it may not be right away. Only resend if you don't get one by the last hour of the submission window. Once I receive 50 entries, an email will be sent to notify you if you didn't make the cut, so get yours in quickly!  Round one filled up in just under 36 hours, so don't delay.  And again, if you enter, please critique five other entries, so that it's fair for everyone.  And please, feel free to stop by and offer your support and wonderful insight to those in Round 1 starting December 17.  

Keep rocking, you awesome bunch of writers.  Got questions?  Post them in the comments or shoot me an email.  I'll be checking both frequently.

P.S. If you're not a follower of my blog, I'd love it if you'd follow my journey and join the fun! There are several ways via the right-hand side of the screen. I try to offer open critique rounds monthly to help writers like you perfect your work. Our already amazing writing community only gets better when we help each other. :)


  1. Is this still open? I know the first one closed in 36 hours...

  2. Yes, it is. This will remain open until the above submission window close date or until it's full, at which time I'll post an announcement on here, Facebook and Twitter. So gets yours in as soon as you can to avoid possibly missing out! :)
