Silent Night...Secret Agent Reveal!

Yes, it is silent around here...

If you have nay suggestions for the final month of workshops, leave a comment below. The schedule has een made, but I am waiting on a few return emails before spilling the beans on what to expect in January. But let me say it's going to be great.

We will be discussing the complete submission package:

Query Letter
First 5 pages

There will be a query letter break down and examples of what to include, how to catch an agents attention with a luring hook and how to trick, er, I mean entice an agent to want to know more about your book.

There will be more agent giveaways. These were planned for last week, but things didn't turn out as I had expected (but still awesome!) so January will be busy the first few days of the workshop.

Someone requested an detailed schedule in advance, so I will list each class, discussion session, contest, and workshop in January. This will give everyone plenty of time to prepare for the month and help them get ready for the pitch opportunity in February.

Are you ready for out secret agent reveal?

Jordy Albert of the Booker Albert Literary Agency! Her wish list?

I'm really interested in plots featuring time travel, competitions, or stories about travel. I'm interested In YA, New Adult/Adult. Stories that are either contemporary or historical, and I am most interested in romance.

Jordy will be giving away a 10 page critique!!!

I will recap all the agents and their giveaways during the first workshop in January.

Any questions? comments? Suggestions??

See you all again on Thursday!
