Christmas in July officially BEGINS!

It’s happening, yo!

Below are fifteen of the thirty winning entries for Christmas in July! (The other fifteen winners can be found over at Ruth Lauren Steven'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 before then, 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 J 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 the requests are 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 immediately view their completed manuscript, right? RIGHT!)  

As a reminder, the participating agents are:

-Julia Churchill of The Greenhouse Literary Agency
-Vickie Motter of Andrea Hurst & Associates
-Carly Watters of P.S. Literary Agency
-Molly Jaffa of Folio Literary Management

And so it begins J

  1. Yay! I wish "entered a blog contest" was enough of a reason to call in sick to work.

  3. Awesome stuff. Just one thing, I was scrolling through the lists and number #8 - Steampunk Thriller, doesn't show up. The link is visible on the side bar, but when you scroll it jumps from #9 to #7.

    1. The author let me know about this problem but I could see it just fine on my computer. But now that's TWO of you who can't see it, I'll be emailing the agents to let them know about the issue. Thanks for the heads up!

  5. I don't know whether it's just me or if everybody else experiencing issues with your website. It looks like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before. Many thanks I wish all the best to your project! Btw, it seems that you like movies, so you must know that The Dark Knight Rises has just been released to the big screen.

    1. I've had a few people check it out, and I've check it out myself, and there appears to be no issue of posts running off the screen. Maybe have your browser checked out since you've had this problem before? Best of luck!
