I’m very excited to share this post today and welcome this fabulous group of writers to Team Sun. To say that Michelle and I were blown away by the entries this year is putting it mildly. The selection process was very difficult for both of us, and in fact we’ve added a little surprise!
There were so many worthy entries this year that we decided we each needed one more pick! So yes, instead of 15 entries each, we both have 16 now to share with the agents on February 9.
My choices are listed below by category in no particular order. If your entry was not selected, please remember we only had 32 spots for over 200 entries. There are many other contests coming up this year. I highly recommend looking into Brenda Drake’s Pitch Madness (submission window opens February 20.)
Just to let you in on a little secret, I was selected for Pitch Madness last year, and received a few requests, but ended signing with my agent via the slush pile (six months later). So remember, DON’T GIVE UP! We each have our own individual path in this crazy world of publishing.
Now enough of my babbling. Here are my picks for this year’s Sun versus Snow contest:
The Sinner Rose
Of Night and Stone
Beneath Our Skin
In Darkness We Rise
Suspension of Disbelief
Forces Beyond Our Control (Free Pass Winner)
The Secret at Seachase
Lost in Never (Wonder) Land
If you are part of Team Sun, expect letters from your mentor soon. Your mentor will help you fine tune your entry privately all this week.
Here’s the important part:
Get your revised entry back to me by Friday, February 6th at 3:00 pm EST. That’s so I have time to format the entries and have them ready to post for the agent round on Monday, February 9th. Mail your revised entry to the contest email Sunversussnow (at) yahoo (dot) com. Please use the exact same format.
Then it will be up to the agents! Congrats and good luck!
