I've been participating in a 2-month long writing contest called Pitch Wars. Those who made it into the contest were paired with mentors who helped them polish their manuscripts for the showcase, where agents were able to browse our stories and make requests.
As the agent showcase concludes, the 2017 Pitch Wars mentee class would like to thank our mentors and the Pitch Wars staff for creating this incredible opportunity. We are all doing giveaways in honor of our mentors and the staff.
My mentor, Caitlin Sinead, was awesome! She helped me make my manuscript shine, and I am so thankful for her help! I am giving away a Kindle copy of Caitlin's book Heartsick. If you would like a chance to win, simply retweet THIS TWEET and follow @CaitlinSineadJ on Twitter. I will draw a random winner on or after Friday, November 17th.

I have read Heartsick, and I highly recommend it. Here is what it's about:
Heartsick by Caitlin Sinead
Quinn is looking forward to her senior year at Poe University. She has big plans to hang out with her best friend, flirt with a certain boy genius, party at her favorite dive bar and figure out what she's going to do after graduation with her not-so-useful art major. But that's before she meets Luke, a hot townie who's moved back home to help take care of his dying sister. And it's before a weird epidemic sweeps across campus, mysteriously turning people's eyes purple.
Is it an odd side effect from a new party drug?
Is it a rogue virus developed in a campus lab?
Is it the mark of the devil?
Soon the town starts blaming the university and the student religious group becomes frighteningly aggressive in their on-campus accusations. Quinn and Luke are caught in the middle—until a tragic accident forces Luke to reveal the one part of himself he's kept carefully hidden. That he's so much more than the happy-go-lucky boy next door Quinn had believed him to be isn't a surprise…but this truth might be too dangerous for her to handle.
