Cupid's Literary Connection

February 8, 2012
I mentioned the contest going on at Cupid's Literary Connection in my last post. There are fifty entries up today, and the bouncers are going through them to pick which ones they think should go to the next round. As I type this, 32 entries have been selected to go on to round 2.

It's interesting to read all the different entries. For one, I love seeing what other novels are out there in the querying trenches along with mine. There are several YA, which I would expect since it's one of the most popular genres right now. There are some really great-looking YA contemporaries too.

Reading all the entries gives me a new perspective on what agents deal with every day. Some of the queries were perfect, some were not. I love contests like this, because they're helpful to writers who struggle with the query.

There will be 50 more entries to go up next week, mine included. I can't wait!

About Megan

Visit my website! meganwhitmerwrites.com

Loves kissing scenes and funny t-shirts. Knows the words to most 90s rap songs and entirely too many broadway musicals. Talks too much. Laughs too loud. Doesn't dance nearly enough. Swear words make me giggle. If we meet, I'll probably hug you.

This blog is for my writing news, but I'm sort of a wanderer so you'll probably hear a lot about my family and food too. That's sort of my life in three words: Family, food, and writing. Oh, and t-shirts.

My young adult novel BETWEEN will be published by Spencer Hill Press in July 2014.
