Heads Up - Mystery Agent Heading Your Way!

We have another awesome Mystery Agent contest coming up on Thursday Dec 1st!! This time we are looking for ONE SENTENCE PITCHES.


Fiction - pretty much any and all commercial fiction, but especially: science fiction and fantasy (and all subgenres), high-concept women’s fiction, contemporary and historical romances, cozy mysteries, and young adult books, including sci-fi and fantasy.

No MG or picture books.

Non-fiction - popular mathematics, popular science, and spirituality, especially church history and philosophy (but not for the Christian market).

So get those one sentence pitches polished up and head over here bright and early Thursday morning! The contest will open at 9 am EST and will go till we hit 50 eligible entries.

See you Thursday!!


  1. Yay! Thanks, Michelle! So looking forward to the pitches for this one. It's not often we get a Mystery Agent who accepts both fiction and nonfiction.

  2. Is there a word limit for the sentence?

  3. Probably a dim question, but is this for completed MS only? Not sure if it's just a contest or an actual pitching op!

  4. Awesome! I'll be sure to check in.

    New follower. :)

  5. @A.E. Martin - no word limit but try not to stretch the "one sentence" limit too far :)

    @Lucy - yes, completed manuscripts only. First prize is a full request

  6. Are we going to come to this website and post in the comments box? This is my first go around so I may be asking a silly question. If so, I apologize.
