Hey y’all! Let me say first that I had SOOO much fun with this contest. At times, when I was reading your pages, I thought I was reading a book for free. How awesome is that?
It was hard to choose a winner. And it was sort of like this:
Monica B.W. enters a room full of gorgeous guys. She can’t believe how beautiful they are. But in the end, despite that they are all hot, only one guy winks at her and wins her heart. (Okay, Hubby, if you’re reading this, understand that this is only a metaphor! You know, the guys being the manuscripts?)
So, as I was saying, one of the entries won my heart. And it was…
By Ruthanne Reid.
Please email me (loveya.blogspotATgmail.com) so I can give you further instructions about how to send your stamped query.
BUT. That’s NOT all, my friends! Remember how Monica entered a room full of handsome guys? Well, there were some that were really hot! And she just couldn’t let them walk away empty handed.
So I emailed the participating agents with a list of the pitches I liked more. And they picked some of these titles because they wanted to read more. Not everyone got picked. And some entries got more interest than the others, so I’ll just paste the list of the people who got something out of this contest. But I’m not posting who got what. Please email me (loveya.blogspotATgmail.com) and I'll explain what you got and from which agent (s). I might take a little while to answer because I'm having internet problems, but that does NOT mean I forgot about you!
So an applause to:
For the people who couldn’t participate because were still polishing their mss: there will be another contest with one agent in a couple of months, so stay tuned!
Thanks to all the participants!
Awesome sauce!!! Congrats Ruthanne! And I love that my manuscript was hot enough to get your attention. He's dark and edgy so not for everyone but if you love bad boys...wait, I'm taking this metaphor too far, aren't I?ReplyDelete
