First Page Critique & A Chance for an Agent Query Critique!

Here's a fun promotion from the wonderful (and also my agent-sister!) Laura Lee Anderson to celebrate her upcoming debut YA contemporary novel, SONG OF SUMMER, being published on
July 7th by Bloomsbury Spark!

Every single person who preorders SONG OF SUMMER will get a 250-word (first page) critique from Laura and be entered in a drawing to win a query critique from her agent, Uwe Stender at TriadaUS!

Here’s how it works:

1) Pre-order SONG OF SUMMER (which is currently less than the cost of a Grande Frappuccino. Can't beat that. Plus it has zero calories.) before July 7th, 2015. 
(here for Kindle) (here for Nook) (Here for Kobo)

2) Send your proof of purchase with an attached Word doc of your first page (approx. 250 words) to: lauralee.edits @

3) Await your critique!

4) Obsessively check Twitter/email on July 7th, the launch date for Song of Summer, to see who wins the query critique from Uwe!

About the book . . .

The thirteen qualities of Robin's Perfect Man range from the mildly important "Handsome?" to the all-important "Great taste in music?" After all, Westfield's best high school folk musician can't go out with some schmuck who only listens to top 40 crap.

So when hot Carter Paulson walks in the door of Robin's diner, it looks like the list may have come to life after all...until she realizes he's profoundly deaf.


  1. Congratulations, Laura. Looks like a great book! Thanks for the fun contest, Dee.

  2. Can't wait to read it. Just pre-ordered mine!
