Nathan had nothing good to say about my post, but knowing who the agent is makes me feel a lot better. He and I have decidedly different tastes in books.

Sheila said...

Thank you, Nathan and Authoress! As always, I learned a ton.

I only wish Nathan represented MG so I could have played along.

Anna said...

Thanks to both Authoress and Nathan for this opportunity! I had fun, and the comments were very helpful!

Empty Refrigerator said...

Wow!! I *wondered* if it was him. Congratulations, Authoress, on scoring the famous NB as this month's SA! I didn't submit anything this time, but I really enjoyed reading everyone's entry. Good luck to all.

Angie said...

oh, no, how so unfair.

Jessica said...

Thank you to both Nathan and Authoress for taking the time! The Secret Agent contests are always helpful AND fun!

Bobbie said...

I guessed it! Hooray for me! (There's a prize for that, right? :)) The telltale? His use of the word "whacky."

Thanks for letting us play.

Bobbie said...

Wait... I mean "wacky." Though, admittedly, I did feel a little whacked after this experience as well.

A. Grey said...

Ooooooh. Now I'm excited just because I got input from an agent I respect! And I'm putting all the comments I got on my piece to good use already.

Thanks Nathan and Authoress! Awesome experience!

Miss Aspirant said...

I thought this might be Nathan because of the genres and was very happy to see his comments on the subs since he is at the top of my list of agents when I'm ready to start submitting. Thanks so much Nathan for participating as this month's Secret Agent!

Theresa Milstein said...

Thanks for this wonderful opportunity, Authoress. I learned a lot from the comments and my beginning is much better as a result. Knowing that the secret agent is Nathan Bransford is fantastic. Even if I don't win, I hope to send a more polished version of my manuscript in the future.

Huntress said...

Holy Cats, how in the world does he find the time to be the Secret Agent? He is one busy feller.

Thanks to Authoress and Mr. Bransford. Excellent forum!!

Valerie said...

Wow! That's awesome! I'm so excited that I got some great, and very helpful feedback from him!

shelley said...

Oh Bum! So sorry I didn't enter. On the other hand, I entered HIS recent contest and didn't even make HM, so I'm guessing it would have wasted both our time. Nathan's my hero--Best of luck to one and all! And what Huntress above said. Sheesh!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Wow! I wondered if it was him based on the genres. I have no idea how he had time for this. Thanks to Nathan and Authoress!

Higley Browne said...

I agree with all the thanks :)

Nathan Bransford said...

Thanks, everyone! It was a lot of fun reading the entries - this is a talented group here.

Ann E. Bryson said...

I'm sad I missed out too! Thanks Nathan and Authoress for another great round.

jessjordan said...

Gosh darn it! Okay, so I'm slightly bitter I missed the entry deadline on this one. Stinking work ...

Congrats to everyone that participated, and thanks for the great feedback, Nathan. It was fun reading everyone's entries.

A.L. Sonnichsen said...

Thanks for the feedback, Nathan. It was very helpful indeed.

Steena Holmes said...

What a great contest - thanks Authoress for hosting this and Nathan for being the SA. Thanks everyone who commented on my entry - I can only go upwards and onwards from here :)
