The bonus prize is me critiquing your query! Why is this cool? I know firsthand how frustrating queries can be to write. A fresh pair of eyes can be just the thing to hone the main weapon in your arsenal of hooking an agent's attention via slush pile. A solid query can be the difference between an agent moving to read your pages, or moving on to the next submission.
Am I qualified? Well, I've written a few, critiqued a few more, AND one time, I got to YES on QUERY SHARK! It took me an embarrassing amount of revisions because I have no objectivity with my own writing. I'm WAY better with other writers' work.
THE TOP PRIZE!
My awesome agent, Marisa Cleveland has agreed to critique the first chapter of the winner's MS!!!!
