Query Kombat is back!
First things first: You are all so very talented, you make picking extremely difficult for me. And since there’s no cap on entries this year, I decided to enlist the help of a very talented writer (and excellent critique partner) to sift through everything for me. Meet Kara!
This year, I’m offering each of you a chance to bypass the slush and go straight into the contest where you will receive judge feedback and an opportunity to make the agent round. You’ll still have to knock out your competitor in Round 1, though, so make sure your first page and query (and the entire manuscript) are as polished as you can get them before you submit.
To create some excitement and spread the word about the contest, I’m following Michelle’s lead and raffling off one of the spots on my team.
My Free Pass contest will be open until May 5. On May 6, I’ll draw one lucky winner at random, and post the results on this blog.
To enter the contest, answer the following question in the blog comments, using 50 words or less: What weapon/skill does your main character use to fight for his or her dreams? Please include your Twitter handle so I can notify you if you win.
Make sure you use the Rafflecopter and don’t just leave a comment. The Rafflecopter is choosing the winner, so you must get your name in it. For bonus entries, follow me and Kara on Twitter or visit my Facebook author page.
To learn more about Query Kombat go here. The judges and agents will be posted soon. There will be a Twitter party starting just before the submission date of May 21nd. Watch my blog for more details.
Good luck with the free pass!
