The Challenge is over 1000 strong (amazing, huh?). Hosted by: Arlee Bird, Alex J Cavanaugh, Jen Daiker and Talli Rolland.
Today I'm taking a break from my How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest (I couldn't find any YA "Q" books) to do a Query Crit Giveaway.
To enter, just comment that you would like a query critique.
Also, if you come up with a YA "Q" title I might have listened to and forgotten, mention it for two entries in that contest.
Now, for Road trip Wednesday:
Compare your first kiss with your favorite characters first kiss?
Although Alice (from THE OPPOSITE OF INVISIBLE) may not be my favorite character, I did relate to her first kisses recently. Like her, I was totally inexperienced until high school and got a crash course in kissing, with more than one guy.
Unlike Alice, my first kiss wasn't a long time crush. He did have more experience than me and was oblivious (I hope) to my lack thereof. He jumped straight to "making out" without any niceties, so my experience was more overwhelming than Alice's poignant one.
I guess some things are better in fiction.
What about you? Any first kisses better than fiction?
