Ms. LaPolla had a lot of wonderful things to say about the entries--and especially the winners:) She said she rearranged the order about a million times, but here's what she finally settled on:
First place: #8 CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE CYBORG
CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE CYBORG wins a full request!
Second place: #22 MANAS
MANAS wins a first-3-chapters request!
Third place: #3 SWIMMING WITH TCHAIKOVSKY
SWIMMING WITH TCHAIKOVSKY wins an in-depth query critique!
Winners, e-mail me at kvandolzer(at)gmail(dot)com for instructions on how to submit your manuscripts and/or queries to Ms. LaPolla.
And of course, THANK YOU, everyone, for participating in this month's contest, either as an entrant or a critiquer. We had a ton of great feedback flying around here last week, and it was GREAT.
I'm taking a break in August (I never could have foreseen how much time these contests would take), but I'll be back in September with another round of "An Agent's Inbox."
