Query Workshop Winners …instructions

Query Letter Workshop
August 20 – 24 
Okay, we have winners into the query workshop. But before, here’s some exciting stuff going down …
 Beyond The Hourglass Bridge...

Three more chances to get into the workshop… If you didn’t make it into the workshop, you can win one of three query critiques from me if you stop by Katherine Amabel’s (@katherineamabel) blog Beyond the Hourglass Bridge and leave a comment on her interview post of me. Katherine is delving into ‘how to grow your blog’ by interviewing bloggers on her site. Go check it out! I’ll choose winners by August 22 and the three winners will have their critiques up on my blog on August 25.
Pitch Madness is coming up in September (genres tbd). We already have 8 agents signed up! Submission windows will be on September 1 and all the fun starts September 7-12 with a Twitter Pitch on the 13th open to everyone. Rules of the game, agents’ bio, and instructions will be up the week of August 26.
