Looks like I am the contest girl lately. I’m entering Flynn into all sorts of things, and my latest venture is something that you guys might want to check out too.
Remember Guide to Literary Agents blog? The blog which I consider my MVP as far as agent-snagging resources go? They are hosting a contest in which you can submit the first 150-200 pages of your manuscript. First, second and third place winners receive a critique of their first few pages by Jennifer Laughran, an agent with Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Andrea Brown is one of the agencies for quality YA fiction right now.
The contest only runs through Feb. 21, so hurry!
In other news, I’m still working my way through the second in the Gemma Doyle trilogy. Parts of the mystery seem a bit thin to me, but it’s a good yarn. I’m interested to see what happens, and how this will lead into a third book.
