Welcome from the Rejects! (AND PRIZES!!)

Welcome to our little blog! We—Liz, Auzy and Nazarea—are the Writerly Rejects. Why call ourselves rejects? Well, because right now, we’re being rejected. All three of us are in some stage of the query process and as most of you know that’s a process full of rejection.
We’ve been at it a while, though, so we’re here to share our thoughts on querying, writing, life, and books. (N: YAY BOOKS!!). We are so glad y’all made it over here! For the first few days, we’re going to be introducing ourselves, letting you get to know us some. If you have any questions for any reject, please feel free to pester us in the comments. (Especially Liz. It’s good for her. ;)
(L: Hey—not cool, N~)

AND!!! We’re holding a raffle!! We need your help spreading the word about the blog (especially before Tuesday!!! Big things happening next Tuesday!!)
So, to entice you to blog, tweet or status update about us, we offer prizes!

  1. Good luck with your writing and the contest. I've tweeted about it, and as you can see, I'm now following your blog. You can check out my blog, too, at http://shevi.blogspot.com.

    My most popular post is on my reasons for choosing to indie publish. If you're curious about that option, you might want to check it out.

  2. I have posted about you guys on FACEBOOK!!! *And side note, should I obtain one of the coveted prizes would I count as international?

    1. Yes, but you are eligible to win one of the three critiques. :)

    2. Aww...sniffles...but YEAH!!!

  3. I tweeted about you. Also you can follow me @anginicole722 and my blog is at http://angiblacktallthoughts.blogspot.com/ I'm excited about your blog since this is exactly the point in the process I am at as well. Looking forward to seeing each others' books on the shelves!

  4. This sounds like a really fun blog! I'm a follower and I tweeted: https://twitter.com/#!/NicoleZoltack/status/202392782671847424

  8. Rejections sucks -- but camaraderie in rejection does not! Looking forward to seeing more of you ladies!

  9. Dianne I'm glad!! Lol, BUT we do have a gentleman in our midst ;)

  10. This is lovely! Also, all of your names have a Z. That has to mean something big.

  11. Tweeted you!! And sorry I'm late. I told you two days ago I'd come visit and follow. I think one of my kiddos distracted me. I'm part of the family now, though!!

  12. Fun. I'm terrible at spreading the word (mostly because I've been MIA), but I'm following and look forward to future posts...that is, as long as you all like cheese. *eyeing the followers badge*

  13. Okay, so I'm attempting this for the forth time... :)

    Congrats on the blog! I'll sure be following. A question, will the blog be geared more towards YA/Fantasy or are you going to tackle all genres?
    I FB'd, Tweet'd and +'d you a couple days ago, lol.

  14. Mel, YA is a first love of mine to be sure, but the contest will allow YA, MG, and a some Romance genre's. Full details will be out soon.
    From your friendly neighbor hood freak,
