Spilling Secrets...

You know the agent-judged contest I've been telling you about? It opens this Monday on The QueryTracker Blog, and all you have to submit is a hook (a one sentence description of your book.) The prizes haven't been officially announced, but I'm going to spill about them anyway.

Agent Joanna Stampfel-Volpe will consider your full manuscript.

Yep, that's the prize. How cool is that?

Runners-up will get to submit partials.

So be sure to check out the blog for all the details, and let me know if you have any questions!

J.N. Future Author, you are so incredibly sweet! I would hug you if you were here. Because I'm an author of the QTblog, I'm ineligible to enter the contest. But thank you so much for thinking of me!

Le gasp! Thanks so much for sharing! I'm totally going to enter. :)

Suzette Saxton said...

Yay Jen! I'm so glad you'll be entering! I have more than one friend who has found their agent by winning a contest.

Good luck! ;)

Oh, how I wish my manuscript was completed!

I should take a shotgun to my computer for eating 35K of it because it would probably have been done at this point....but on the other hand, by being forced to rewrite it in this way, my manuscript is probably much better than it would have been.

Maybe I'll be ready the next time something like this comes around.

No worries, Cynde. We have several contests lined up, approximately one per month.

If I had a shotgun I'd shoot your computer for you. *wink*

I sure do like your blog!
