UPDATE: Congratulations, Jessica Ferguson! You’ve won! Send me an email for next steps.

When I handed in my copyedits for THE NEVER NEVER SISTERS, I couldn’t help but take a moment appreciating how far the book has come since I first sent it to my editor Kerry a year ago. Then, I thought for the ten-thousandth time that writing a novel is a team effort and that I’m incredibly lucky my team includes my editor, Kerry Donovan.

And now . . . you can have a chance to work with Kerry as well because she’s agreed to do a chapter critique for the winner of my next giveaway!

A little about Kerry: besides being wonderful, whip-smart, lovely and generous, she’s a big shot Executive Editor at Penguin/NAL. I can guarantee that no matter what stage of drafting you’re at, she will help. She has provided crucial, blasting-through-mountains kind of input on everything I’ve thrown at her—from ideas to chapters to full-blown drafts.

She was the one who nudged me to build up Molly and Henry’s relationship in THE LOVE WARS (resulting in the brownie bites scene), and after reading  THE NEVER NEVER SISTERS, Kerry urged me to see what would happen if I gave Vanessa her own point of view in addition to her journal entries.

Check out the rules below, but all you need to do to enter to get a piece of Kerry’s genius is:

  1. Like my Facebook page.
  2. Comment on the Giveaway Post as instructed there.

If you don’t have the need for Kerry’s expertise, please feel free to forward this link to someone who might.
