|It's just like Christmas morning!|
We are a week and a half away from the next Mystery Agent contest at Operation Awesome!! This time you need to polish your 25 word pitch for your complete middle grade or young adult novel! I know, we're mixing it up on you. But a Mystery Agent gets what a Mystery Agent wants, and this is going to be an opportunity to see some slightly different pitches from the standard one-liner!
I word-counted 25 words to bring you an example of an appropriate pitch:
Nobody knows how dark Abigail’s life really is. But a special school for the blind doesn’t help her blend. It only intensifies the ghostly voices.So start working on your pitch if you haven't already. I hope you win that coveted full request!
Michelle's blog tour locations today are here:

If you haven't already bought her lovely book, Homework Helpers: Essays & Term Papers, you might get lucky and WIN a signed copy! But it's probably best just to buy it just in case and so you don't have to wait. ;)
Anne Riley is giving away FIVE COPIES of her book, THE CLEARING, which isn't even out yet! Go check out her blog for the deets!
I'm going crazy talking about queries and cyber stalking at both The Best Damn Creative Writing Blog and Operation Awesome! I hope you find both articles helpful, or at least entertaining. As always, comments are welcome and make me feel like a pretty princess.
Next Wednesday, Lindsay (aka Isabella) is interviewing the New York Times Bestselling Author, Beth Revis on Operation Awesome and giving away TWO copies of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE!
And I have another mysterious and wonderful literary rock star coming to Operation Awesome very soon. That's all I can tell you. This message will self-destruct, so make sure you take copious notes.
