You guys also asked for an honourable mention list last year, so here it is again! I know it drives some people nuts when agents says 'unfortunately I just didn't love this enough', but that's genuinely how it is in many cases. I don't know if it helps but I want all the people on this list to know that I wavered A LOT over the final list:
Erin Funk, Alison Miller, Mary Hallberg, Jill Haugh, Prerna Pickett, Danelle Miller, Michelle Mason, Eva Gibson.

OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF: When the winners go live on the 18th, could we ask you to save your comments, if you have any, until after the agents have made their requests. After that you can go cheerleader nuts if you want to.
