Agent Feedback Giveaway

Found another one for YA and MG authors!

Literary agent, Pete Knapp of The Part Literary Group is hosting a giveaway that will make your day. Agents deal with so many queries, many of them send a form reply rejection letter (if they respond at all), leaving you to question WTF you did wrong. If you submit your query (must be a new submission) and required materials per his agencies guidelines with the phrase FEEDBACK GIVEAWAY, will receive his HONEST FEEDBACK. That’s worth it’s weight in gold.

Follow his instructions found here and you never know, he might fall in love with your material. At the very least, you will receive genuine feedback. 

Kaylee Davis Twitter Contest Winner

For much of the summer and fall, I only used Twitter to discuss TV shows and other random things. I didn’t discuss my writing because it was a secret that I had started all over. I didn’t want to say much until I had completed the novel (which I completely rewrote) because I wanted to make sure I could finish it…and I did. I started researching twitter and blog contests and for unpublished authors and stumbled upon one by Dee Murray Literary agent Kaylee Davis.

I entered and expected nothing of it, my luck with contests goes like this: I don’t have any. Needless to say, I was pleasantly suprised when she contacted me on Christmas Eve to say I’d randomly won her contest.


I am beyond excited because since #pitchmas is now over, I’d been coming up with a list of agents I wanted to query after the new year. Ironically, she was one of them. I had the email waiting to hit send, already loaded with the requirements of her agency and now I get to hit send, but she will be critiquing either the query itself or the first 10 pages of my novel. Of course, it would make me ridiculously happy if she liked my material enough to request the manuscript and even happier if she saw enough potential in me to want to represent me, but I keep pulling myself back to reality where I’m satisfied that I will be given detailed feedback on my writing.

More details after I submit.
