Contest Circuit: May 13

I'm still recovering from the A-Z Challenge. I managed to post every day, but got behind a few too many times commenting. The biggest highlight of the challenge was being featured as one of Alex J Cavanaugh's blogger buddies for his letter "P" on the Princess Bride.  Thank you again, Alex, for your kind words.

I'll be absent most of May as I get ready to move. Until then, here are a handful of contests and blog hops I had to mention. Enjoy!

Contests and Blog Hops

Julie at A Thought That Grows pointed out the Unpublished Writer Fiction Contest: Colorado Gold Contest. The contest is for unpublished writers of commercial novel-length fiction and offers an opportunity to get your novel in the hands of an acquiring agent or editor. See Julie's site for details.

SC Write, Michelle4Laughs and Writer's Outworld are hosting Query Kombat Contest. If you survive the tournament, eight agents will be browsing the semifinals to make requests. Submission window is from May 13-May 17 until 225 entries are filled.

80+ bloggers are signed up for Kid Lit Giveaway Hop hosted by Mother Daughter Book Reviews and Youth Literature Reviews. Jump around and sign up for a few giveaways!

Steven Tremp, Alex J Cavanaugh, L. Diane Wolf and Michael Di Gesu are hosting the Get Healthy Bloghop on May 29.

DL Hammons and Elise Fallson are hosting the WIPIT Good Blogfest on May 31 focusing on your latest WIPs.


  1. Thanks for letting us know what's going on. Enjoy your time off.

    Moving sucks up a lot of time, so understand the absence.

  3. Thanks for the roundup! Signed up for WIPIT Good. Excited/nervous about that one!

  4. Great round-up as always, Kimberly. I entered Query Kombat *nervous* :)

  5. Thanks for the roundup of all the blog hops :)

  6. That query combat sounds interesting. And WIPIT. Things to think about.


    Do you have the summer off? How many weeks left of school? We have 7 more days after today. Yikes. :)

  7. Contest is still open-- thanks for mentioning it. And thank you for all the other great announcements too.

  9. Although I'll miss you, take time getting settled in your new home. It's a huge thing. And stressful. But enjoy each minute of memories.

  10. Thanks for the update on blogfests coming up! And I'm slowly catching up on blog comments from A-Z. It just took a while. *sighs*

  11. Good luck with your move.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  12. Oh wow - A to Z challenge and an imminent move! You're making me tired just thinking about it. Hang in there, my friend! But good job doing A-Z and I hope the move is smooth. Great roundup, as usual. <3

  13. Thanks K!
    I just entered QueryKombat.
    You're the best.

  14. HI, Kimberly,

    Thanks for the the links... I hope you move is as stress free as possible. But, how exciting to move into a HOUSE after so many years of condo living. I can't wait until that happy day. Lol.

  15. Man. I'm so out of the loop these days.

  16. Thanks for the links and see you when you come back. Have a safe move.
