Writers Contest – Update
Fresca the kitty says it all. How could I not get one, not one agent request? Because Lori is sitting on the edge of her seat, I will tell you I did not get one agent request.
Now my excuses: My entry was number 16 of 16. It’s because it was the first one posted and the luck of the draw. I think that busy agents may have stopped before they got to my fab entry. The other excuse is that the contest was almost all YA, MG, fantasy, etc., what the tweens and teens love, and the agents are therefore looking to fill their lists. I was aware of that ahead of time.
This is no reflection on the contest itself. Authors Amy Trueblood and Michelle Hauck gave so much of their own time to help other writers advance. And after the Sun versus Snow contest, they are right into something else, blog hopping.
What did I win? First of all, a huge outpouring of support from the wonderful followers on my blog!! Heartfelt thanks! Secondly, working with Amy as my mentor, I now have a killer query and received much praise for my premise. And I received my first author referral from another writer. At the risk of using a taboo cliché, there is always a silver lining!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
