Just so you all know what to expect this week:

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:

Genre: Genre of your book
Word Count: Word count of your book


Your query formatted correctly.

First 250:

Your first 250 formatted correctly.
