Mystery Agent: April 1st!



It's mystery agent time this Sunday!

Which means a brand new Mystery Agent! ** dances**

This time, instead of a pitch, we're mixing things up a bit. Our mystery agent would like 
the first 200 words of your COMPLETED manuscript. 

That's right, the first 200 words, not a pitch. 

Our mystery agent is looking for the following:

I'm looking for YA of all types, story-driven (as opposed to "lesson"-driven) middle grade. I'm also looking for a range of commercial adult fiction. 

So polish up those opening words for our contest this Sunday. The prize will be a partial request from our fabulous mystery agent.

  7. Does "adult commercial fiction" mean any genre books for adults, like romance?

  8. I'm also wondering about the specifics for "adult commercial fiction" does it include urban fantasy?

    1. to my understanding, it pretty much covers anything that's on the commercial end of the spectrum as opposed to literary novels.

    ReplyDelete

  19. Just wondering what time Sunday morning - I'm very interested but live on the west coast. Hope I still have a chance to enter during my morning!

  20. Oh, and I forgot to mention how much I love the dancing reminder of the 90's :)

    Fresh prince of Belaire....yeah, I totally know every word to that song.

  21. Amazing! *does Carlton dance*
    How dow we enter?

  22. I knew I should've just stayed up all night and just not had my daughter go to school. It's the only way I get a chance as these contests usually pop up sometimes between midnight and now (7.40am)
    The joys of being born in NZ, I suppose.

    Ah, well, hopefully June's agent will be looking for adult fantasy. Though knowing my luck, probably not.
