One of the things THE TEXAS SWEETHEARTS have discovered the most is the value of a good critique. Whether you're on the giving end or the taking end, honest critiques will advance your writing more than anything else.
In the spirit of this, THE TEXAS SWEETHEARTS are launching their own critique service! Whether you're interested in receiving feedback on your query, your synopsis, or your partial or full manuscript, we'd love to help.
In giving critiques, we strive for honesty above all else. Every manuscript has wonderful aspects, and every manuscript can use work. And getting out of the slush pile can seem impossible when, in truth, much of the time a reworked query letter and first few pages can make all the difference.
If you're interested, please check out our website for rates and specifics. And if you know someone else who is interested, we'd love if you passed our information along.
In the spirit of critiques, editor Madeline Smoot of Blooming Tree Press, aka The Buried Editor, has kindly offered up a critique. She will critique a query letter and ten pages for one lucky winner. All you have to do to win is:

The contest will run through Sunday, March 28th, and the winner will be announced Monday, March 29th.
Good luck! And have a great week!
