The good people at Querytracker is holding another Agent-judged contest. Here is the information:
Suzie Townsend of FinePrint Literary Management has graciously agreed to judge an adult fiction contest. (For completed manuscripts only.)
What to enter: A Twitter-style pitch (140 characters or less, including spaces)
Entries WILL NOT be capped. (Yay!)
Entry period will be 24 hours: From noon Tuesday, July 6 - noon Wednesday, July 7.
These are the genres Ms. Townsend will be judging:
Adult Science Fiction
Adult Urban Fantasy
All subgenres of Adult Romance
Normally, I'd be all over this contest since it features adult lit. Unfortunately, it doesn't feature adult mystery/suspense lit. Although I do have 2 thriller ideas stewing, they are just ideas - nothing completely formed or written. Since I don't plan on entering the contest, this doesn't mean I can't spread the word. If you are interested, visit the Querytracker blog for more details on how to enter.
