I Never Win Contests! Ever!

I won a contest! Yeah! I enter them all the time, whether writing something is required or just simply a comment. I never win, I swear, and yet I continue to enter them because that is the nature of me.

This time! I won a 30-page request from an agent! Yeah!

Check out the Operation Awesome Blog, if you don't already. It's pretty cool. Every month they have these Mystery Agent contests and what an amazing opportunity not only to get your work in front of an agent in a different way other than Query World, but I really love to see what other writers are working on. If you check out the entries you'll see what I mean. There's such a wide range of amazing work out there. Pretty cool stuff and it makes me wonder what bookshelves will look like in another year or two.

Anyway. I entered my completed strange little manuscript Slumber. My Twitter pitch and the first 500 words are up on Operation Awesome, if you be curious about this dark wierd book.

Happy Writing! Happy Friday!


  1. Your book sounds awesome! I love dark, weird stuff. Congrats on the request!!

  2. Okay, now all you need to do is relax and wait for the agent to get back with you. I'm sending you the best vibes and the best good luck mojo with this post. I hope hope hope that you get the agent, then proceed to get book contract, and then proceed to get uber famous and all the other stuff that comes along with that. hehe. I shall be checking back to see what happens. Best of luck.
