And... the contest is closed!! Thanks for everyone that entered. We'll let you know the results as soon as possible.
I can't believe it's December! With the festive season fast approaching isn't it good to know we at Operation Awesome aren't resting on our bottoms. Okay I am, but I write while I'm sat on my bed. :-)
It's Mystery Agent contest time! I'm happy to announce we have another fantastic agent for you who, until the grand reveal, is hidden away in a secret location with my cookies. I can promise that this agent IS fantastic. Seriously!
Here are the details:
All YA and adult subgenres except for Christian fiction, erotica, MG, and picture books. 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 me right -- YOUR FULL MS! So don’t forget, please have your manuscript ready to send before you pitch.
Note: It should go without saying, but please, please, please don't pitch your recently finished Nano novels. Give them the love they deserve and revise them like any book baby should be.
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.

The contest will close when the fifty entries are filled. Even if it looks like we have 50 spots filled, check the comments anyway (we do our best, but some comments could be duplicates/questions). So keep checking back to be sure you don't miss the chance.
Want to know who the agent is? Come back when the winners are announced and we’ll have an interview with the agent extraordinaire.
Now ready, steady, go!
