Blind Speed Dating info coming this week.....

Just so you all know what to expect this week:

Participating judges will be announced.
Participating agents will be announced.

Then, entry windows 1 and 2 will be opened at the end of the week. 50 make it into each for a total of 100. Query and first 250! Get them all shiny and silky and glittery and perfected!

I'm going to probably say this twice this week...


When you submit your entry please make it very simple:

No tabs or double spacing. I want it email style. Single spaced. One space between paragraphs. No tabs!
Just the meat of your material. No dear so and so. Or I chose you because.... Just the meat of the query and first 250. You may add your credentials as well at the END of your query.

Your entry will be like this:

Title: NAME OF YOUR BOOK
Genre: Genre of your book
Word Count: Word count of your book

Query:

Your query formatted correctly.

First 250:

Your first 250 formatted correctly.

(Look at January's entries for further example)

AND!!!!!! I want you the subject of your email to be: TITLE - Your Name

Got it?

This makes my life A LOT easier, so THANK YOU!!!!!

Now go get to work on those entries!
