Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmic Space Kapow Give-Away

(Or, Celebrating a Friend’s Release Date)

Today is the release date of the Nathan Bransford’s debut novel, Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmic Space Kapow. Because Nathan was so nice a few weeks back during his interview here, at Not an Editor, I thought it’d be fun to give away a copy. Just cuz.

So that’s what I’m going to do.

a middle grade novel about three kids who blast off into space,
break the universe, and have to find their way back home.
See the first chapter here!

Here are the (simple) rules, in three steps.
1.    Follow this blog by clicking the “Follow” with Google Friends Connect button in the column to the right
2.    Leave a comment below. It can be anything, like the color you like to use when you critique.
3.    Tweet with a link advertising this give-away.

I’ll do a random drawing generator thingy and announce the winner tomorrow, on (*cue scary music*) Friday the 13th at noon (CST).

That’s it!*

*Although, if you’d like to follow me on twitter, click the “Follow Me” button, also in the column to the right. :)

A blog about critiquing sounds interesting! I signed up to follow (but I don't tweet yet so I can't do that part of your requirements).

I mostly critique in Word docs, so I use the comment box, which I think is black ink.

I'm in! Need all the help I can get w/critting. I love free books and can't wait to get my hands on this one. And I tweet. All good things.

I like purple! (And pancakes!) And I have a quick editing tip for when you are ready to revise your MS (this is after you've finished your rough draft & left it alone for a couple weeks like a good little writer): change the font, print it out, use a pencil (or purple pen) to make notes to yourself in the margins BEFORE you start editing in your computer :)

Fun contest!

Thanks for this! I'm in too. I'll tweet about it! :)

I use a yellow hi-liter and a red pen if I'm using paper, but track changes in Word if it's on my desktop.

And I've been looking forward to Jacob Wonderbar for ages.

Text-to-speech software is my biggest tool for editing. Nothing takes the place of listening to my work aloud, read exactly as it's written.

Thanks for the giveaway. I'd love to read this to my son.

Great contest, Mary! I'm afraid I'm too impatient to wait (I'm planning to order JACOB WONDERBAR later today), but I did tweet about it, since it sounds like such a great book.
