Brand New Mystery Agent - COMING SOON!

It's that time again, everyone! Next Friday, March 1st, a brand new Mystery Agent is coming to Chez Awesome to take a look at your pitches! That gives you exactly one week to shine up your one-sentence pitches and get ready to go!

Here is what our fabulous MA is on the lookout for:

Picture Books
Middle Grade
Young Adult

And specifically, our MA is seeking the following:

For MG and YA: currently seeking mysteries, historical, or contemporary with mystery elements

For PB: seeking manuscripts that have a voice, aka an author who is putting forward a sense of place, personality, and storytelling. Voice, voice, voice!

This contest is open to veterans and newbies alike - so long as you have a complete and query-ready manuscript on your hands within the genres of interest, our guest agent would love to hear from you. Watch this space for more details closer to the contest!

Happy Friday, everyone - I hope your weekend is a great one!
