Congrats to those agent winners! Wondering what to do if your agent seemed to like your pitch, but didn’t request? See this post.
And now… Onto the Mentorship winners! These pitches were selected by book bloggers and agented/published authors. Each person was assigned a specific thread, and each thread was read an equal number of times. We really tried to make this as fair as possible. Our book bloggers and authors selected the following for entrance into our 6-month Mentorship Program. Details and invitations to the private forum will be coming via private email to our recipients.
But they are:
- Flannery, #17: ANNABEL MIST DOES NOT EXIST (MG Contemporary)
