A blog for aspiring authors
That was quick. Is it some kind of record?My clock still showed 12:00 when I hit send and the number I got was halfway through the list already.Either everyone has a new novel to shop, or this agent is really something :)
Sher, I'm guessing the contest filled up so fast because the agent reps really popular genres (especially on this site). Good luck to you!Authoress, does the second window open at 6:00 Eastern or 7:00?
Thanks for this authoress.
Oy! 7:00! Thanks, Krista. *changing*
GAHHHHmissed it. I misread the time for contest, thought it opened at 2 eastern.*smacks forehead*
Huntress! You have another chance later!
I got the error of the header causing the rejection of my piece (although I typed it myself instead of copying), but was somehow able to recopy, cut out a sentence and resend and STILL make it in the window.I have no idea how.
Obviously you were meant to be in this round. :)
I must be having a brain freeze because I can't see (or remember) what I am supposed to put in the subject line of the email.
Subject line doesn't matter. Just don't use "RE:" in it, or the bot will think you are replying to an email and will reject you.
So could I leave the subject line blank when I try at 7.00PM?
Well, I'm not sure why you would want to leave it blank. Honestly, I don't know if my guru has it programmed to not like that or not. Just put anything descriptive there. It doesn't matter; I don't see the emails. SECRET AGENT CONTESTSA CONTESTCONTEST ENTRYThose are all good examples.
A,May I suggest that your clever programming guru create a program in which a hearty biceped arm reaches out of my screen and waps me over the head while saying: submissions are open, press send, you idiot!Another A
This is a lot of fun, even though I think I was bounced for word count...will try again next time!
