I have blogged up this AGENT before. Mary Kole is hosting a contest on her kidlit blog, inviting writers to submit the first 500 words of their finished young adult or middle grade novel. Deadline: Jan. 31, 2010. The prizes are as follows:
Grand Prize Winner: A 15 page critique
First Place: A 10 page critique
Second Place: A 5 page critique
Third Place: A 2 page critique
Honorable Mention(s): A critique of the first page of your novel
So let's get our entries in to her people. You know how Jody has blogged about contests and how important they can be. This one is a great chance for all of us to connect with an agent and get a critique on the important first pages of our novel. Good luck to all of us. :0)
Thanks to all of you that commented on the death of my Scooby. I know it will take time to heal. I'm still not over Blue's death. I really appreciate your stories of your own experiences on this life event. Thank you, thank you so much. You helped me more than you will ever know. And Ivy (who was very close to Scooby) read the comments and they comforted her too.
