This will also go up on the Happy Hooker Crapometer blog.
The FAQ at the Crapometer blog has also been updated today, Monday, 12/11.
The Crapometer opens on Friday 12/15 at 8pm (EST).
That means you've got about 4 days to go.
Just a reminder.
You'll send an email with your hook of 250 words.
You must also include "Ok to post this on the blog" AT THE TOP of the email. It doesn't count in the 250 words.
I'm not spell checking so you might want to double czech ur spelz be4 u cast them into the wind.
ALL hooks get posted unless you've screwed up in some completely idiotic way. If there's a chance to fix it I MIGHT email you with that option. This is NOT a given. Get it right the first time.
I'll comment very very briefly on each hook. Be fully prepared for "this sux"; "wtf" and "try to write in English" and other very very snarky comments. If you have thin skin, a tender heart, and/or are easily persuaded to put your manuscript in a gas oven, think twice before sending.
Some hooks will succeed. From those I will ask for pages. You'll have a VERY brief window to send pages. Think 48 hours or less (not fewer!).
This crapometer is for first pages. The hook part is just to winnow down the entries in as fair a way as possible. There is no set number of people I will ask for pages.
Don't send early.
Don't send late.
You WILL get an email from me when your pages are received. If you don't get it by mid day on Saturday email me again saying you sent it and I didn't respond. You'll need to FORWARD the original email, not resend it (forwards have time stamps).
I'm sure you do.
