Winner Announcement 6/28/2021

It pains me to announce today’s winner because I really wanted this prize for myself, but that seems like it might be a bit shady, so … Congratulations to Dina Hodara who won the priceless prize of a query + 10 page middle grade critique from the hugely talented Rajani LaRocca, author of MUCH ADO ABOUT BASEBALL and several other middle grade and picture books.

Dina email me at ljrwritenow at and I’ll connect you with Rajani.

Also, I’m still waiting to hear from Bonnie Hausman who won NO ROOM FOR A PUP! from author Elizabeth Suneby and illustrated by Laurel Molk. If you know Bonnie, please tell her to reach out.

Don’t forget there are amazing giveaways still available from authors Lisa Blake, Bryan Patrick Avery, Jessica Speer, and Kira Bigwood.
