Dear Alison and friends,

You see that countdown? That's the countdown to Christmas, but I should update it for the Kim's Countdown to 20% off Manuscript Review and Writing Coach services because that deal ends tomorrow. I received a huge response via my newsletter. Evidently, people like a deal. "Who knew?" said the biggest fan of deals ever. 

So I wanted to let our beloved readers in on that deal and another deal that happens tomorrow. Here's a of my books will go on sale for .99!!! 

I told you I was going Holly Jolly crazy. I'll write a short post tomorrow about that deal, along with details about the New Adult Scavenger Hunt, which starts next week. 

If you like to get in on the 20% off, use PROMO CODE: 2017DEAL in the comments, your reply email, or on my contact page: .Give yourself or someone you love the gift of a dream. I'll bill you through Paypal, but you don't need to send me your manuscript, query, or pitch now. We can work on it in 2018.

Here's a thank you I received from a recent client:
"Working with Kim was the leg up I needed to feel confident about my pitch. Her method for helping me to drill down to the essence of my story was effective and led me to a great result that can be used on everything from elevator pitches to query letters. Plus, her one on one session really pushed me to focus on presenting my pitch. Six out of seven agents, agreed. Thanks, Kim."
That made me pretty excited. Excited? I was downright STOKED!! I offer a variety of services. Check them out on my website:
Okay my friends, I gotta wrap. Seriously, I have a lot of presents to wrap, so adios and talk to you tomorrow!

Write on,

FIRST SNOW by Bomi Park: Classroom Activity and Review

Dear Kim,

Let it snow!
Let it snow!
Let it snow!

We had fun with Bomi Park's gorgeous FIRST SNOW last week. We used the book as a mentor text to explore personal narratives and poetry.  We also explored watercolor resist techniques. (We also made a mess-- which is kind of my modus operandi during writing workshop. Sorry, Kelley!)

I used the sentence starter from the jacket copy:
Look up. One flake falls, then another. And just like that—it's __ __ __ __ __ __ __ .

The kids worked cooperatively at their table groups to discuss what word might fill in the blank. I love hearing them chat. 
"Well it is a snowflake because 'one flake'." 
Followed by: "No. It has seven letters, snowflake has nine." 
And: "It is an action. A-- what's that called-- a verb because it is something falling." 
Eventually we filled in the blank by using spelling clues to check our thinking, which might not sound like a whole lot of fun, but spelling is awesome and totall…

KIM NEEDS YOUR HELP!! Please, oh please!

Today is the day! STARR LOST, BOOK 2 of the STARR FALL SERIES is only...
and I need your help. I've purchased ads from some major social promoters, and if all goes well, STARR LOST will make it to the bestselling list.  Amazing things happen to authors and their books when they make the Bestselling list, so if you could purchase a copy or two (or three) for 99 cents it'll help hurl me to the top.

So, let's see what happens when we all combine our buying power together.

And to thank you for your WRITER LOVE, I'm running a  $10 AMAZON GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY... to enter, email a copy of your receipt to KimBriggs [@]

Write on, Kim
