We will use a random generator to select a winner on Friday, January 13th and the critique will be posted on Monday, January 15th.

A few past query breakdowns can be found here.

Good luck!


  1. Awesome! I would love a critique! Count me in!

  2. Out of curiosity, what do the penguins have to do with writing and querying and YA stuff?

  3. LOL, Michael. I've never been asked that before. Penguins live in groups because there is safety in numbers. The idea of that reminded me of the writing community--how supportive we are of each other, how we route for each other,can count on each other. Plus, penguins are totally adorable.

  4. Ugh!! Queries are so hard to write! I would love some help with mine. Thanks for doing this.


  5. I could use some query help! Great Blog!
