A Little Contest, A Little Ice Breaker

Hey All,

Thanks for stopping by the blog! You can thank (blame) my BFF, and client, Zoraida Cordova for being subjected to my internet ramblings.

As you might know, I'm an agent & rights director at Nancy Yost Literary Agency (www.nyliterary.com) and this blog will be filled with my random musings (see banner above). I'll talk books, agenting, life, puppy-parenting, etc…

To kick things off on a fun note I thought I'd hold a little contest, hopefully the first of many. Instead of the "follow me and enter to win" route, I'd like to set up a little challenge. 

The Prize =  A Query Critique from Yours Truly

"The Win A Query Critique 6 Word Story Contest"

Fine, I'll work on the name… 

Here are the deets! 

To enter, submit your story of exactly six words into the comments section by October 2nd. All genres welcome. Make me laugh, cry, ponder, etc, etc. Only one entry per person please. 

Best entry wins. Winner announced on October 3rd. 

If you need a little inspiration, here's one pulled off the net of  unknown origins:

"Then Buffy staked Edward. The end." 

Have fun!
