First Page Critique – Book Promotion Opportunity – Book Winners – Kudos

Hi, everyone. Couple of things. If you have a first page that you would like to have critiqued by November’s Agent of the Month. Your chances of winning a spot is high this month, since the amount of submissions are low. I will be picking the four winners on Thursday. Don’t miss this opportunity. Here is the link to the guidelines.

Also, so many of you have already contacted me to hold a date for a book in 2020, but there are a good number of spots available in December. If you would like to have your book featured in December, let me know. It doesn’t have to be a recent published book, just send me a note letting me know the titled and a little bit about the book or just send me a link to the book on Amazon. The one thing I need is your journey with the book. Usually I can find the other things I need for the feature. Of course, it is always great to get your picture (at least 500 pixels wide)your bio, the cover, book description, and four or five .jpgs of interior art. For those not familiar with the book features, they are done with a book giveaway. If you don’t have a book, your publisher might be willing to send out the book from their marketing department. Please send me an email at: kathy.temean (at) and put BOOK PROMOTION in the subject area, before the spot are filled. Note: You do not have to have a picture book to be featured. You can be an author of a Middle Grade book or Young Adult book
