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
-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 J
