We've Selected Our 50 Entrants for the August Mystery Agent Contest!



 Check the list and see if you're one of the lucky 50 folks* who get to pitch our August Mystery Agent!

If your name's on the list, you'll need to email us your pitch--50 words or less--for your completed and polished middle grade or young adult manuscript. Send it to operationawesome6 (at) gmail (dotcom) by July 30. In the past, we've emailed stragglers to get their pitches in on time, but with 50 entries we're not going to be able to do that this time, so make sure you follow the guidelines and meet the July 30 deadline!

Please format your pitch like this in the email:

Name: 
Email or twitter: 
Genre: 
Title: 
Pitch: 


Good luck to all!

  2. For the pitch, is there a specific format we need to adhere to? Do we need to the title, genre, word count etc... into the pitch? Thanks for doing this! Looking forward to it!

  6. Curious. Did you possibly mean Holly D instead of C? I don't come across a lot of over Holly's.

    1. Hi Anonymous Holly,
      We don't type the names in--Rafflecopter pulls them from how you identified yourself. The Holly that made it through is Holly Campbell. :)

  7. We've heard from 23 of you--as to the rest of the entries, don't forget to send them by July 30! If you're not sure one of the slots is yours because of the way the Rafflecopter shows them, PLEASE ASK on here or Facebook.
