Now. First things first.
Paying Forward Awards
The Paying Forward Awards are basically a way for the blogging community to make some of its members' day. We do this by recognizing and rewarding excellence. But I can't do this alone. I need your help. If you have anything that you think will make someone's day that you feel you can give as a prize, please become a sponsor. When I say anything, I mean anything. From query crits to care packages to vouchers to beta reads to e-copies of books and everything in between. Nothing will be turned away and nothing will go wasted. Also, I'm willing to reciprocate by hosting guest posts and/or interviews to promote your book or blog etc.
If you are interested in taking part, please contact me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com with "Paying Forward" as the subject.
Please note: I can only take gifts offered by e-mail, as I can't always reach everyone through the comments.
