Contests & Giveaways in the Writing World - Week of April 16th

I don't have much to say today except:

You might be feeling the same way. Hopefully you're not and you're enjoying the gorgeous summer-like day outside. But if you do feel the same way, then some cheering up is in order. And what better way to cheer up than by checking out fun contests and giveaways in the writing world?

Pitchapalooza at World Literary Cafe!! Send in your 200 word pitch most genres (the full list is on the website) by midnight on May 15th. The winner will be announced on May 22nd.  The winner will then be introduced to an agent or a publisher appropriate to their work. Last month, three Pitchapalooza participants have signed book deals! You could be next!

Can't wait to get your hands on Insurgent by Veronica Roth? Here's your chance to receive an arc from Hippies, Beauty and Books Oh My!

Win a signed copy of 'Shatter Me' by  Tahereh Mafi - a giveaway by A.J. Locke

A to Z Blogging Challenge (Rach's Writing Prompts Contest!!!) lasts all April - This is a fun, creating way of participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge as offered by Rachel Harrie. A definite "must" to check out!

Night Owl Reviews Spring Fling Web Hunt ends May 15th, so there's still plenty of time to enter! - This is a huge scavenger hunt with lots of amazing prizes, including Kindle Fire and Kindle Touch.

Susan Kay Quinn has a genius giveaway idea that you have to check out. She is running a "Share A Book" Giveaway! You can win a copy of Open Minds if you agree to share the book with a friend, a teenager or give it away to a stranger. I think this is a wonderful way of spreading the word about a book.

Two days left to sign up for this one! Heather Webb of the Between the Sheets blog is all set for this giveaway to start on April 9th. Here's what's it's all about: "Pitchapalooza Blog Hop - Create your best novel pitch (any genre) and win a FREE CRITIQUE from yours truly (editor extraordinaire), and a WRITER'S WEBSITE from professional web designer and developer, Brian Mowell. Details coming soon. YES, this is a FREE setup of your author website or blog. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G PRIZE! Already have a site? No problem. Have your existing site revamped for FREE" 

More great Giveaways and Contests to come in two weeks!

  1. Great contests and giveaways, thanks for including mine =)

  2. I'm pretty much feeling the same way. It's gloomy and windy outside here and I'm just staying inside and editing. Thanks for the contest links!

    1. Gloomy never helps on a Monday :(
      But sometimes staying inside is the best thing lol
      Good luck with editing!

  3. Holy crap I love this writing world. So many fantastic things always going on...
