UPDATE: My voice is sore from all the excited squeeing done today. How will I be able to manage a cookie now :) A huge thank you to everyone who entered, tweeted, blogged, commented and made Operation Awesomes launch, well, awesome. The contest is full for this month, but stick with us because we've got more to come...this won't be your last pitch chance. Again, from all of us here at OA, hugs!
UPDATE: Winners announced here: Mystery Agent Revealed!
Have you ever wanted to squee so loud you thought your head may explode? Okay, it’s just me. Anyway, welcome to the launch of Operation Awesome and our little corner of the blogosphere. We want you to feel at home, so relax, pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea and help yourself to a cookie. It’s okay, I made them. :)
To celebrate in style we have a fantastic September contest -- a one-sentence pitch contest, judged by an amazing mystery agent (M.A).
This agent IS fantastic. We're all jealous we can’t enter. Seriously!
Here are the details:
Genre is limited to MG and YA. Please include Title/Genre in the comments.
The first 50 one-line pitches posted will be considered.
Mystery Agent will choose one winner.
The winner will have Mystery Agent's full attention when they send their full MS. Yep, you heard the British one of the group right, YOUR FULL MS! So don’t forget, please have your manuscript ready to send before you pitch.
The rules: We won’t have any fancy ‘you must follow us’ rules. Sure, we’d love you all to follow us, but Operation Awesome is about giving back. But, in the spirit of sharing, please spread the word. Tweet, blog, shout it from the rooftop. You can even grab one of our buttons. :)

The contest will close at the end of September, or when the fifty entries are filled, whichever comes first. So keep checking back to be sure you don't miss the chance.
