Happy Friday, indeed. My little one and I spent seven hours at a car repair place yesterday, on an errand that was supposed to take two hours tops. Turns out the bargain used car we bought from a dealership auction had a few issues that we didn't, well, bargain for.
Anyway, I'm ecstatic that it's Friday~ two fabulous library programs await me and my girl, one of which includes a person dressed up as Mother Goose...which will either be really neat, or a little scary.
Here are two contests for those of you with a completed, polished manuscript:
OPERATION AWESOME: This month's mystery agent is looking for a variety of MG/YA plots. Get over to the website for more details, and be sure to enter right as it opens today at 10:00 AM, EST. They'll take the first 50 pitches, then close the contest. Click HERE or above for the website. UPDATE: Closed~ keep an eye out for July's contest (they always hold them close to the 1st day of the month).
YALITCHAT.ORG: This fabulous group is hosting Pitch Slam 2! Four amazing agents will judge and comment on pitches for middle grade and young adult manuscripts. This one is open until Monday, June 4th, and I've already seen requests made on some of the pitches~ holy exciting! You need to be a member to participate, but YALITCHAT is free and easy to join (there is a sign-up area on the top right of the website). Click HERE for rules, agent profiles, and other details.
