A Sneak Peek into Blind Speed Dating...

Blind Speed Dating is a contest, yes. But really, it's so much more than just another contest.

I've had a lot of fun ideas come to me lately but not a lot of time to do them in, what with the holidays and PitchWars going on. So, I thought I'd be crazy and just do them all together and make for one amazing Blind Speed Dating in 2013! Will I regret this? Possibly. It's gonna be a ton of work on this end. But I hope I don't. And I hope you will all like it, too!

BSD happens in February. It's THEE CLC event of the year. THE YEAR! Cuz you know, February and Cupid kind of go together. Yep, yep. So let's have some fun!

Here's what we'll be doing...

A contest!!!!!!

An auction!!!!!!

A private writer's conference on Mt. Olympus!!!!!!!


A kissing scene competition!


even more goodness iced with gooey epic frosting! 

The contest will once again include undercover Bouncers (authors/interns) and undercover Honorary Cupids (agents). And yes! The agents will be shooting arrows again! Eeee! Check out last year's if you're unfamiliar. The auction will likely go similar to the one we had in CAGI. And the writer's conference will take place on the private Mt. Olympus blog, where you can set up an appointment with the participating agents to discuss your work and maybe get a request! Yes, you have to be invited to view Mt. Olympus. And yes, getting an appointment might take some effort since they'll be limited.

Oh, and don't forget to get your kissing scenes ready to compete on V-day!

That's all I'm spilling for now. Just know, I already have some fantastic agents and awesome authors/interns lined up ready to read what you've got to offer.


  1. You had me at "Kissing scene competition!"

  2. If I can muster up the courage, this will be my first contest ever... eeep!

  3. This sounds like so much fun! And stress! I never tried speed dating, but I know how the blind dates went. Hopefully this will be better.

  4. I found your blog last year right at the closing of this epic contest. I have very patiently waited for this year to roll around. Um, yes, I'm excited!

  5. If I can get this revision done by then, I'll be there.
