It's been a mixed week. The sad news is that YA author, L.K. Madigan lost her battle with cancer. My thoughts are with her family and friends. You can also read a post from her agent, Jennifer Laughran, here.
I haven't read her books, but (after hearing so many wonderful things about them) I shall be rectifying that soon.
In other news... March 1st sees Operation Awesome's Mystery Agent contest. Here are the details.
1) Entry limit: 75 entrants.
2) Pitch length: 140 characters. Think Tweet. Since we're talking 140 characters, Title and Genre don't have to be part of the pitch -- add them on to the comment somewhere.
3) Genres: YA (especially thriller, cyberpunk, horror, historical romance); MG; women's fiction; romance (especially with a strong, female heroine).
We think it's going to be awesome! Not only has super generous March M.A. asked for a twitter-length pitch, which is just fun, but also raised the entry limit from fifty to seventy-five! That means we get to read 25 more pitches. So feel free to spread the word.
Happy Friday everyone.
