The emails to the winners of the Baker's Dozen YA/MG category have gone out. If you did not receive an email, then your entry has not been chosen for this year's auction.
Again, I'm sorry for the not-personal-ness of that, but the administrative work of sending out the rejection emails would be too time consuming. Please accept this public post as my THANK YOU FOR ENTERING and KEEP WRITING, KEEP FOLLOWING YOUR DREAM.
As I did for the adult entrants, I am offering a special, 3-page critique for any of the non-winning entries in this round. If any of you would like to take advantage of it, THE DETAILS ARE HERE. Feel free to post questions below.
The 60 winning entries will post ONE WEEK FROM TODAY! (They're already queued up and ready to go. I feel incredibly organized.) And the auction will roar to life at 11:00 am on Tuesday, December 3. SO CLOSE!
This is a lot of fun for everyone--not just the 60 entrants. So I hope you've reserved your seat and stocked up on some yummies to nibble. I LOVE watching the bids rolling in, and managing the sometimes-frazzled agents behind the scenes. (Oh, the things that go on...hee!) It'll all happen before we know it.
That's it from my end--have a great weekend!
