Once again, thanks for such an awesome year. If you're working on a new project, don't forget about Query Kombat in June 2016 and Nightmare on Query Street next year! Hope you had a safe and happy Halloween!


  1. I know I've said it already, but thank you so much for hosting, and for all your help and encouragement generally. I've found whether I got in or not, whether I got requests or not, the contests I've entered this fall have motivated me to work harder on my queries, synopses, and my MS.

  2. Thanks so much for this contest, Michelle. I've given to your "go fund me" campaigns in the past, but I surely will again. I appreciate all your time and effort!

  3. Thanks so much for hosting, Michelle! I think we're all winners here. :)

  4. Thank you Michelle! I learned so much from all the incredible people involved and had a blast :)

  5. Thank you Michelle and Michael! This was an amazing learning experience and an awesome journey! Would love to pay it forward in the future!
