|A writer's life in video: Happy, sad, Happy, sad|
Before the reveal, I just want to remind everyone that contests are for fun and meeting other writers, building contacts. In no way are they a reflection on a story. There are only 27 picks out of 250 entries. Maybe people have entered contests and gotten no love, only to get an agent from the query slush--like me. For one thing, we are limited to the number of picks we can showcase, while an agent is not. So keep querying, keep writing those adorable picture and chapter books.
It's very tough. I know the disappointment. Hugs. Use it to keep going.
Please if your title is on the list, watch my blog early on Wednesday and check your entry for typos or formatting problems. Let me know as soon as possible what needs fixed in this post or on twitter.
So here are the picks, listed in the order in which they were received and color coded just for fun.
