Oooh, I loves a contest.

There are some fabulous contests happening in the blogosphere that I wanted to share.

Lydia Kang is celebrating reaching 150 followers by holding a contest. And who wouldn't want the chance to win either a $15 book voucher, a copy of Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly, or a $10 Starbucks gift card. Seriously, books and coffee = perfect. Winners will be picked on May 21st.

Justine Dell reached 100 followers and has a great worst one-liner contest. The ten finalists are waiting to be voted for. Head on over and share in the funny. My favourite is number two, but don't let that sway you in any way.

Get your spoof query ready for Creepy Query Girl by May 27th, and see if you can win one of these prizes:

1st Prize winner will receive an over-the-phone publishing consultation from one of the accomplished authors/editors at The Writer’s Workshop.

2nd Prize winner will receive a 30 page critique from the members of the ‘3Critics Club’ on The Word Cloud

3rd Prize winner will receive a choice of champagne or gourmet chocolates shipped directly from France.

Tahereh has the contest that imploded your brains. Want to know more? Check it out because it is awesome and creative at the same time. And we all love to be creative.

Zoe Courtman is holding the ultimate blog interview contest. Win a blog interview and a golden flash drive. Enter by 27th May. Go on. :)

And The Alliterative Allomorph is only 3 followers away from reaching the 200 mark and drawing the winner. So if you aren't a follower already go an say hi.

The prizes? Here they are below direct from the blog.

First place:
Free CRITIQUE and EDIT of your FIRST CHAPTER. Plus 20% off a full manuscript edit (the 20% off offer will last for a month from date of win), by the amazingly talented Susan Lakin. She is a wonderful writing mentor, professional editor, and published author. You can see more about her at her charming website. I can definitely vouch for her as I have used her myself. :)

Second place:
Free CRITIQUE of a SYNOPSIS or a QUERY LETTER, by the magnificent Paula B from The Writing Show. She too is a professional writing mentor and helped me to perfect my query letter and synopsis. She did an awesome job!

Third place:
$10 Amazon gift voucher

And finally.

It hasn't passed my attention that I have reached over 100 followers this week. Thank you to all. I will be announcing a contest next week once I have worked out the details. It'll be easy though, promise. :)
