Does cheating make you hungry?

You know. Because of the rhyme? Anyway, I've been in transit all weekend, so tomorrow you'll get the real Monday post. Today I'll cheat.

The lovely and talented Jessica Bell (aka, the Alliterative Allomorph) held a contest to raise money for The Writing Show, an online treasure trove of resources for writers.

Everyone donated, and Jess randomly pulled My Name from the hat! Woo! It was really more of a bag, but the point is... The first chapter of my WIP1 is up on The Writing Show site!

It really is. I mean it. Run over and see it by clicking here.

Only the first five pages have been through the amazing critiquers (critters) over at YALitChat, so I would appreciate any helpful critiques here or via email.

Support The Writing Show. And thanks for reading! Love~ <3
