Below are fifteen of the thirty winning entries for Christmas in July! (The other fifteen winners can be found over at Michelle Krys's blog).
Agents will be dropping by to make requests all week, beginning today. We respectfully ask that no one else comment on the entries until after July 25th. Beginning July 26th, or sooner if all the agents have made their requests, feel free comment away (bearing in mind the sandwich rule of criticism), and to congratulate the (hopefully) lucky authors.
Agents, there is no limit to the number of requests each manuscript can receive. So if you see that an entry already has a request for a full, please feel free to make a similar request of your own. We won’t mind! Requests can be made directly in the comment box for that entry.
Entrants, please remember to send off any material requested by Judith Engracia and Lucy Carson as soon as possible after they’re made (though, really, this rule should apply to all of the agent’s requests, as we all know authors shouldn’t query until they’re absolutely ready for an agent to view their completed manuscript as they stand, right?)
As a reminder, the participating agents are:
Julia Churchill of The Greenhouse Literary Agency
Vickie Motter of Andrea Hurst & Associates
Judith Engracia of Liza Dawson Associates Literary Agency
Carly Watters of P.S. Literary Agency
Becky Vinter of Fine Print Literary Management
Melissa Sarver of The Elizabeth Kaplan Literary Agency
Molly Jaffa of Folio Literary Management
Lucy Carson of The Friedrich Literary Agency
And so it begins!
