YA/MG Winners Have Been Emailed

Yes, the email just went out.  If you did not receive one (please check your spam folder), then, regrettably, your entry was not chosen as a winner in the MG/YA round.

And of course I want to thank you ALL, as always, for the privilege of reading your work.  Jodi and I particularly enjoyed reading the slush for this round because, of course, this is what we write, so it's near and dear to our hearts. 

The promised post on trends and THE BIG PROBLEM is forthcoming.  In the meantime, feel free to entertain yourself with THIS LATEST AUTHORESS INTERVIEW.  And thank you, Kristen, for the fun, outside-of-the-norm-for-writer-interviews questions!

  13. I'd be a lot more disappointed if not for the fact that I've completely rewritten my opening since submitting. If only that inspiration had struck a few weeks ago! In any case, looking forward to reading the entries!

  14. Thanks for thought and time and energy you and Jodi put into this contest. Though I'm not in the MG/YA auction, I have learned from all the postings.
    I'm very much looking forward to the comments you will share on the slush pile. There is always more to learn.
    Again, I think you are blessed with patience, and thank you for this great opportunity!

  20. Didn't get into the auction, but I did get a request from an agent based off of my logline critique entry :)

    So there were several ways to benefit from this contest. Thanks Authoress!
