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?

rhea said...

Thanks for this authoress.

Authoress said...

Oy! 7:00! Thanks, Krista. *changing*

Huntress said...

GAHHHH

missed it. I misread the time for contest, thought it opened at 2 eastern.

*smacks forehead*

Authoress said...

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.

Authoress said...

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.

Authoress said...

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.

earth said...

So could I leave the subject line blank when I try at 7.00PM?

Authoress said...

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 CONTEST
SA CONTEST
CONTEST ENTRY

Those 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!
