And the winners are…

December 24, 2009

Okay, we have a WHOLE LOT of winners today, and I love delivering the news.:) That’s the big perk of doing this post.

I’m going to start off with the winners of the Pitch Contest. And when I say winners, I mean more than just two. Peter and Kevan didn’t just stop at giving out the one page 25 page critique, they requested partials and one full. YAY!!! Let’s start with Kevan.

The winner of Kevan Lyon’s (Marsal Lyon Literary Agency) 25 page critique AND a request for a partial and synopsis is…

Timeless – Brynna James

Listen To Your HeartMiranda Liasson (partial and synopsis requested).

The winner of Peter Senftleben (Kensington Publishing) 25 page critique AND a request of the FULL manuscript is…

A Most Unusual LadyKathleen Bittner Roth
A Pocketful of Ashes Kat Sheridan (request for a partial and synopsis)
Courting ScandalSarah Tormey (request for a partial and synopsis)
Listen to Your HeartMiranda Liasson (request for a partial and synopsis)

I want to congratulate these talented women and thank everyone who participated in the Pitch Contest. I truly hope a contract comes out of this. 🙂
