Blind Speed Dating Agent Round Info!


All the entries are up for the Blind Speed Dating Agent Round! Agents may be lurking to prepare. But the official contest doesn't start until next Monday. The entries are in the right hand column labeled "Blind Speed Dating #__ (Genre)".

NO PUBLIC COMMENTS PLEASE. Only agents are allowed to comment during this round.

If you see a Cupid error with your entry, email me at This is for formatting errors made during the transfer from email to blog. Otherwise, THERE WILL BE NO UPDATING ENTRIES AT THIS POINT.

Here are the undercover Honorary Cupid names to watch for: (Keep in mind, not even the agents know each others HC names. :)

HC Rumble-Tumble
HC Pink Monkey Boots
HC Ninja Spy
HC AgentOrange
HC Darcy
HC Agent Extraordinaire
HC Buttercup 
HC ShelfElf
HC Golden Arrow
HC SlowLightning
How they play: (Check #AgentTTT on twitter for any Agent Twitter Trash Talk)
The agents play using their undercover Honorary Cupid names, and the agent round runs through next week. Feb. 25th - 28th

The agents will make requests using arrows. Yes, arrows! Agents will receive a total of 12 arrows. But not all at once...

They start with 4 arrows on Monday. Then 2 on Tuesday, 2 on Wednesday, and 4 on Thursday. Totaling 12. (Each day officially starts at 12:00 pm EST)
Each partial request (100 pages) is worth 1 of their arrows. (Each entry can only have 2 partial requests!) And fulls are worth 3 arrows. (Using a full steals any partials made on that entry and trumps their own partial, too)

But here's the thing... Fulls cannot be made until the last day, which is Thursday! And partials go up in cost on Wednesday to 2 arrows. (Again, each day officially starts at 12:00 pm noon EST)

On Friday everyone is revealed (except me:), winners are posted, and arrangements are made for requests.

**Material any agent wants to see but does not win will be available one week after the first agent(s) receive the material. Agents can make additional requests off the entries after the contest officially closes.**
