All 40 entrants will be notified within 1 week as to whether their submission has been accepted for the auction.
2. MIDDLE GRADE AND YOUNG ADULT FICTION: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18
I will accept 80 (up from 40) submissions. 25 will be chosen for the auction.
SUBMISSION WINDOW #1: 12:00 pm EST for the first 40. No alternates.
SUBMISSION WINDOW #2: 6:00 pm EST for the next 40. No alternates.
All 80 entrants will be notified within 1 week as to whether their submission has been accepted for the auction.
All submissions must be emailed to authoress.submissions(at)gmail.com and formatted in the usual way:
SCREEN NAME: (type it here)
TITLE: (type it here)
GENRE: (type it here)
(Type your logline here. DO NOT TYPE THE WORD "LOGLINE". Just, yanno, type your logline.)
(Type your 250-word excerpt here.)
There will be a 100-word addition to the word count to allow for the loglines. If your logline is longer than 100 words, you'll have to shorten your excerpt.
Entries will be read just like any other slush pile. The 40 that float to the top will be included in the auction. I may have something special for the others later. It depends on whether or not I'm in a blog-induced coma by then.
The 40 winning entries will be posted to the blog on Saturday, December 4, to give the bidding agents several days to read them prior to the opening of the auction on the 7th.
I think that's everything! Post your questions below.
