One Year Blogaversary GIVEAWAY (Intl)

To thank you for your "folla's", I am giving away TWO prizes - one for readers, one for writers!

For readers:
SIGNED Copy of EXCLUSIVELY CHLOE 
by J.A. Yang

Summary from Goodreads:
Chloe-Grace can't help it - she's spectacular. How could she not be with celebrity parents who have been the queen and king of Hollywood for years? And Chloe is a celebrity all unto herself as well - she's the first celebrity-adopted kid in Hollywood.

But now Chloe's sixteen, and she is tired of every undesired moment of the world's attention. She wonders what it would be like to be a "normal" kid in a regular school. To really understand it, though, she would need to go undercover. So after getting a "make-under" at the hands of her mother's fabulous stylist, she enters the "real" world. But she soon finds out that there is just as much drama there as there is in Hollywood....


Author Bio:

J.A.Yang has slummed it in the valley with the Wakefield twins; slumber partied with Huey, Dewey and Louie; joined Krakow in stalking Angela; and climbed every mountain with the Von Trapps. He is the author of Exclusively Chloe. He lives online at www.jonyang.org.

I love that this book is like Maddox Jolie-Pitt's story - an Asian adopted by non-Asian celebs.


For writers:
Angel and Demon 25-Page Critique

The very generous Krispy and Alz from A Nudge in the Right Direction will EACH critique up to 25 pages of your WIP.  That's TWO critiques in one prize!

Why is it called the Angel and Demon Critique?

Because if anyone has read one of Alz's famous rants, you'll know she doesn't pull any punches. She won't be vicious or unnecessarily brutal, but she also doesn't tone anything down just to spare feelings.  Only the brave should apply!

Why would I want a Demon critique?

Because you need a kick in the pants.
Because you need someone who leaves no stone unturned, no nit unpicked.
Because your relatives will not be this honest with you.  (Unless you're Chinese.)

Testimony:
I have undergone an Alz critique and emerged better for it.

Last year I fiddle-edited a draft forever - you know, when you agonize over a single word and call it revising - and it still wasn't working.  I had a sense of where it could go, but I couldn't stomach the thought of rewriting it AGAIN.

So I sent it to Alz.

She tore it apart so thoroughly (and hilariously) that it broke all petty emotional ties to that draft and freed me to start from page zero.  It was revolutionary - and just in time for NaNoRevMo.

Plus she has an MFA in Fantasy.

So Krispy is the Angel? Bwahahahaha-

Shhh, not so loud.  After Alz, Krispy will be a soothing balm of puppies.

NOTES:
Enter through the RAFFLECOPTER below.
Both prizes are international.
You can enter for one or both, but only one winner per prize.  (Make sure you specify which prize you want in the comments!)
