Good morning! I have emailed the 25 winners of the adult category in the Baker's Dozen. Entrants, please check your inboxes and your spam boxes. If you have not received an email from me (from facelesswords(at)gmail), then your entry was not chosen as a winner.
I want to thank all of you for entering. It is nothing short of a privilege to get a peek at someone else's work, and Jodi and I appreciate the opportunity. Rest assured that we carefully considered each of the 130 entries, and that it is our (subjective) opinion that we have chosen the 25 strongest for the auction block.
(I think this counts as a public form rejection letter. I'm not sure how I feel about myself after this.)
(No, seriously. I didn't want "no news" to mean "no". I really hate when agents do that. Really hate.)
(Also? KEEP WORKING. This writing thing is a journey, not an event. Not having been chosen for the Baker's Dozen this year is one of the stones along your personal path. Move past it. Keep writing.)
