In preparation for the March Mystery Agent

Ready, Set... (photo nabbed from RWA-Australia site here)

First thing's first: The winner of A TOUCH MORTAL (the signed copy!!!) is posted over on Operation Awesome this morning. If you entered, be sure to stop by.

Also, we're spreading the deets of the March 1st Mystery Agent contest! Yes! Another very generous, very publishing savvy literary agent has agreed to grace our (humble?) blog for this wonderful contest. (For some reason, 'humble' feels off when describing a blog named Operation Awesome!) ;)

So here are the deets:

1) Entry limit: 75 entrants.

2) Pitch length: 140 characters. Think Tweet. Since we're talking 140 characters, Title and Genre don't have to be part of the pitch -- add them on to the comment somewhere.

3) Genres: YA (especially thriller, cyberpunk, horror, historical romance); MG; women's fiction; romance (especially with a strong, female heroine).

So get those tweet pitches ready for March 1st!!!! 

Again, that contest is going to launch March 1st at Operation Awesome. Can't wait to read your awesome tweet pitches!! 

P.S. How close are you to finished with your current WIP? I remain a few chapters shy of my target--restructuring plot and stuff. I may write a post in the near future entitled, 'Plot-What a Drag.' Keep your eyes peeled for that guaranteed gem. LOL.


  1. Thanks for the heads up, Katrina,

    I'll be working on my entry.


  2. Thanks for the deets! Wow - 140 characters? Better get slicin' and dicin'. :)

  3. Yay! Looking forward to reading your pitches!! Tweet pitches might just be my favorites. It's a real challenge and you guys get so creative.

  4. Wow, 140 characters? Sounds like a cool challenge. Thanks for the heads up!


Speak up! You will be heard...or read.
