Win two sessions on the Full Mentor Programme

KINDLEThe Modigliani Girl - Jacqui Lofthouse Kindle

On January 15th 2015, I will be celebrating the publication of my novel The Modigliani Girl. I’m really excited about this publicationby Blackbird Books. This is a reissue of the novel originally entitled ‘How To Be A Literary Genius’ and I will be blogging shortly about the decision to republish the novel under a new title.

However, I don’t want to delay announcing the news that the book is already available for pre-order on Kindle and to celebrate this news, I’ve decided to run a competition and to offer two sessions on the Writing Coach’s Full Mentor Programme, including appraisal of 50 pages of writing work as a prize.

Essentially, the winner will have two full telephone/Skype coaching sessions with me and editorial feedback on 50 pages of their writing work. You can be coached on any aspect of your writing life, from time management, focus and productivity to career progression or more general aspects of the writing process such as forming your characters or structuring your work. We can also work on agent/publisher packages.

All you need to do is to simply pre-order The Modigliani Girl on Kindle before 15th January 2015 and contact me to inform me of your purchase.If you also share this post on social media and inform me, your  name will be entered into the draw twice. On publication day, 15th January, I will put all names into a hat and draw the winner.

Good luck! I’m really looking forward to finding out who wins!
