  1. Yay! Congrats to the winners! Everyone got such great critiques, though, that it seems like each participant won (in a way).

    Thank you to Authoress and Mary, as well as this whole amazing community.

  2. Congrats to the winners! This has been an great experience. Thanks all!

  3. Congratulations, #37 and #42! I didn't read either of those before, so I'll have to check them out.

  4. Congratulations winners!

    I feel like I won too. Thank you all for your great insights and comments.
    Thank you Mary Kole for your time and wisdom.

    It was an honor to be here!

  5. Congrats to the winners and the lucky ones with a bonus from lurkers. :)

  6. Well deserved! All the best to everyone.

  7. OH MY GOODNESS. I am number 42. My day is officially made. :D

    Aaaand as if this couldn't get better, Mary Kole was actually at the very top of my "to-query" list! There's no one else I'd rather have critiquing/ripping my pages to shreds.

    Congratulations, also, to number #37, whoever you may be! :)

    Again, thank you SO much to Authoress and everybody who left critiques--and really to everyone who's ever taken part in this contest. I've been lurking for awhile, and seeing everybody else post their excerpts and take and give feedback so graciously has been really inspiring.

    Okay, I'll shut up now. I tend to ramble when I get excited. *grins*

  8. Congratulations to the winners!! :)

    I agree--I feel rewarded with the comments and critiques left on my own submission.

    Thanks to all who took the time to read and to post comments, and THANK YOU Mary Kole and Authoress!

  9. Congrats to the winners! And thanks to Mary Kole. I appreciate your feedback as well as all the the others, it helped me restructure my first few pages! Thanks as well to Authoress.

  10. I agree 100% what a great experience. Thanks to the people who commented on #2 (mine). I can't wait to take all your comments and get to work polishing my first page! Somehow, I didn't realize Mary would comment on each of the submissions, so that was an awesome bonus (secret agent newbie here).

  11. Congratulations to the winners and thanks everyone SO MUCH for your feedback. It is incredibly helpful! And Authoress, the biggest thanks goes to you for this monumental effort.

  12. Congrats to the winners! Reading the entries and the comments has been an experience well-worth the time.

    Thanks to everyone who left thoughtful comments on the entries, and to Mary and Authoress for doing this.

  13. Wow! i am so late to this party! it's early morning here in Ausralia and I just logged on to see 2nd... 2nd! I can hardly believe it.
    And a crit from an agent on my 'dream list'!!
    Congrats to #42 too!
    And thanks so much to Authoress and all the commenters. Such a great contest. Such great feedback.

  14. Wow--this is a cool thing that you run. Hopefully I'll get to participate soon!

  15. Yay! Congrats to the winners! Hope your novels go far! :)

  16. Congrats to the lucky winners!! :)

  17. Congrats to the winners! Best of luck to you both!
