NIGHTMARE ON QUERY STREET HAS STARTED!!
Are you guys excited? BECAUSE WE ARE!!
Below this post, you'll find the ten Minions I picked for my team!
You can head over to see SC's and Mike's team as well (But don't worry, Minions will take no prisoners!). All in all, we have picked thirty submissions from our pile of one hundred to be on our teams!
Remember that selection was very subjective. Just because you might not be on the list, doesn't mean your story isn't exactly what an agent is looking for. So if you aren't here, don't quit querying.
BUT BEFORE WE GO BARGING IN, THERE ARE SOME GUIDELINES!
Commenting for the Entrants/Audience:
Sorry guys, but no commenting, cheerleading, etc. We hosts discussed this issue, and we agreed that it'd lead to too much unfairness and unconscious biases. Only agents will be able to comment.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
CHEER OVER ON TWITTER! We're going to be under the hashtag #NightmareQuery and we will be having FUN. So vent, be nervous, cheer each other on, and hold hands over Twitter. One of the best parts of contests is seeing how the writer's community gathers and supports each other.
I'll be looking for all my Minions there. Don't disappoint me.
Commenting for the Agents:
Agents will have fun ways to request in the contest.
You can SCREAM for a full request.
You can SHRIEK for a 50 page request.
You can SHIVER for a 10 page request.
And agents can make as many requests as they want! So go wild! We have some awesome talent for you to peruse.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! Hope you all get a ton of frighteningly amazing requests!
And remember: Minions Rule!
If an agent requests 50 pages or a full, it is okay to send those as attachments since it would be a solicited submission, even if their website says the agency doesn't accept attachments? I would think it would be awfully hard to format all those pages in the body of an email. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Absolutely! I'd say a 50 page partial or full means an attachment.ReplyDelete
Hi, Michelle. Is the agent requesting period now closed? I don't remember if I saw a posted time when this would be considered "done." Thanks!ReplyDelete
It's open until the 27th. Not sure if the agents are all done or not.Delete
