A Special Call For Submissions!

Think of it as a way to spice up Monday.

At noon EDT, submissions will open for THE FIRST 750 WORDS OF YOUR COMPLETED MG/YA MANUSCRIPT.

But hold on. I'm only accepting 10 entries.

So please don't hit "send" unless your manuscript meets the following criteria:
  • Your manuscript is FINISHED and POLISHED. If you know you're not ready to send queries, please don't enter.
  • Your novel is MG or YA, any genre.
  • Your manuscript WAS NOT ONE OF THE 50 ENTRANTS IN THE JULY SECRET AGENT CONTEST.
  • You are not currently represented by a literary agent.
Submission format is the same as always:
  • Send your first 750 words to authoress.submissions(at)gmail.com
  • Send plain text (for best results)
  • As such:
SCREEN NAME: (type it here)
TITLE: (type it here)
GENRE: (type it here)

(type your 750 words here)


I'll post the 10 entries on Wednesday for a nice, in-depth critique session. If this is successful, we'll have another one for adult fiction.

Sound good? Ask questions below!

Yay! So excited I'm awake for this!

Is it okay if I submit a novel that was already submitted to your secret agent contest several months ago?

If not,I understand. :)

Yes, that's fine! Just as long as it wasn't THIS month's contest.

Sorry, Lady-o! I'm still revising. As they say, evil plots don't hatch themselves.

Think of me fondly as I *don't* waste your time. *grin*

Do you know when you'll be holding the one for adult fiction yet?
