Thanks so much to all who participated, and thanks to Authoress for taking the time to host this contest every month!
Please note that while there were several posts where I commented that I would, indeed, read more, I've chosen to limit the prizes to those who really did stand out the most. Of course if you'd like to query me in the future, please feel free by visiting our web site. That being said, there are a few of you who already have either been rejected by me OR who have partials/fulls with me - note that my comments were strictly about the 250 words you posted and NOT in reference to what I have read in the past / have yet to read.
Also please note that this is a very subjective industry. It's quite clear by the wide variety of opinions after each post that not everyone shares the same tastes. Same with agents. So note that if I said it wasn't for me, I'm sure it may appeal to someone else.
