Well, maybe I'm a softie. MG isn't included in this month's SA contest, so I thought we'd do a small crit round for MG only. This is for the first 250 words of your manuscript, COMPLETED or IN PROGRESS. (Please don't ever enter incomplete works into a Secret Agent contest. This is an in-house crit with no agent present, so I'm opening it to WIPs.)
Submissions will open at 7:00 pm EDT today (Tuesday). I will accept the first 15 entries.
Your submission for this contest should be formatted EXACTLY as follows:
SCREEN NAME: Your Screen Name Here
TITLE: Your Title Here
GENRE: Your Genre Here
(Followed by the excerpt here.)
* No "chapter one," chapter titles, etc.
* You will receive a confirmation email with your post number.
* Submissions go to authoress.submissions(at)gmail.com. They DO NOT GO to my facelesswords address. Or any other address.
*PLAIN TEXT is your best bet! And if you receive a rejection notice that claims you didn't include TITLE, etc., please TYPE THE SCREEN NAME, TITLE, AND GENRE BY HAND and resubmit. (In other words, don't copy and paste that part.)
*It doesn't matter what you put in the subject line. The only thing you MUST NOT do is to use "RE:" The bot will think you are attempting to respond to an email, and will reject you.
Please post your questions below.
