This Friday's Post: Mid-July Agent Tweets


  1. Wow. So many pitch contests. Awesome.

  2. I blogged about virtually the same thing today. LOL Don't worry--I'm not a copycat. I had to blog about them in order to meet the entry requirements.

    Thanks for giving everyone a heads-up! Without you, I wouldn't have know that the YAtopia/Bree Ogden contest had opened up to include all genres. :)

  3. Thanks! And of course I wait until last minute to get ready. Self sabotage comes to mind. =)

  4. Woman! I have no idea how you stay on top of all these contests, still be a wife and a mom, write and read...et all!!!

    True definition of WonderWoman. I'm jealous. Cause I'd love me some red boots. And a sparkly gold headband too.

    <3 you, Jess!

  5. I'm tweeting this. Thanks for sharing Jess. :)

  6. Three fantastic contests there. I am going to share this with all my writing friends. Thanks!

  7. Thanks for all the contest info!

  8. I was thinking the same thing as Erin, how in the world you keep on top of all this! Amazing, Jess!

  9. Thanks for helping me spread the word! :D

  10. I'll definitely check out that critique contest! Thanks!

  11. Great info AGAIN. I will pass the word.

  12. I don't know how you find out about all this stuff, but you are a great resource!

  13. I saw your name on both those contests. Your story sounds so cute ... something I'd love to read. Best of luck with these contests! And thanks for always sharing the info! :)


  14. Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
