GUTGAA Critique Groups and Final Prizes!

Now that GUTGAA has come to an end I've been able to relax, spend time with my family and begin plotting a new novel. Life is good! I hope everyone enjoyed all the festivities over the past month. I know I did! There were so many requests made! I really couldn't be happier...unless you all land agents and grab book deals from it:)

I apologize for not being at my best toward the end of the blogfest. I wasn't able to get to the last prizes so I'm doing that now. Check HERE to see if you won:)

Also, to those that helped out with GUTGAA, I can't thank you enough. I SERIOUSLY wouldn't have been able to do it without you guys! I wish I could list everyone, but there were just sooooo many. Please know how very grateful I am to you!

Now, for critique groups. I've finally been able to out them together and I did so based on the info you all gave me. Thanks for your patience with this.

I will list the groups below. Please go find the names on the initial sign up list HERE. There you can read their interests as well as contact info. If an email address was left I'll put it beside the name as well. It is my sincere hope that these groups work out, but if not, I'm very sorry:( You are welcome to try to contact anyone on the list yourself and look for yourself to find your perfect match.

Thanks so much for going to the effort to put this together. I commented on a whim and have lucked out by working with Jenny Herrera for over a month now. I'm excited to also work with Mia as well.

You did an awesome job with GUTGAA this year! I couldn't believe how many people participated.

Lemme give you a few thoughts, indelible girly, which shall influence U.S. to reach for Utopia no matter what the cost (and, yes, you may take whatever you wish -IF- I may kiss thy feets in Heaven): FOUR!! blogs which tell of the exxxcitement Heaven Above has to offer, which is an eternity of pleasure-beyond-measure; we ROTE {theeyebeam} to show a true story about sex in Heaven after we croak (apparently, most of U.S. are completely unaware of this fact). C'mon, people. The Liar's a deceiver: absolutely no sex in Hell amid the flames, filth and fuglyness, yet, puh-lenty of sssEX! Upstairs for those who want some. And why not?? Doesn’t God say anything and everything’s possible?? Yeah. Thot so. God bless you. Meet me Upstairs, wonderfull girly, where you’ll be 17 and I will be 21 for the length and breadth of explosive eternity --- ‘God only gives bawls to those who see the need for humility’
