Twitter Tuesday~Giveaways, Pitching, Agents

The craziness of organizing a blog tour kept me away from Twitter a lot last week so I'm sorry to say I don't have many links for you. I did find a few though! This first is a chance to win a few great books: 
@HeatherMcCorkle Enter to win three excellent books: tinyurl.com/3ar2pld from the wonderful @AnneRiley ! #WritersRoad #writing

@WritersDigest Writer's Digest Read the query that got YA writer @karstenknight his agent. (His book WILDEFIRE comes out today.) http://tinyurl.com/2czdbqp via @kid_lit

Another chance to win an excellent book, this one from Catherine Fisher:

  12. Hi Heather!

    Saw your comment on VR's blog and thought I would pop over to check out your site. I am so glad I did! You are obviously one who understands and cares about those who write as their passion. Wow, what great links.

    And congrats on your book deal! You mention all the support you have received. I can only say that it seems to be a classic case of "what goes around comes around."

    My very best to you, and please consider me a new follower.
