I Spy a Mystery Agent Contest

The contest is now closed. A huge thanks to all who entered. We've got more Mystery Agent Contests to come though.


Today is the start of another Operation Awesome Mystery Agent Contest. Yep, another agent of brilliance is ready to take your pitched. 

Here are the details:

1. 25 word pitch.

2. Adult fiction or YA, any genre but our Mystery Agent is especially interested in mysteries, thrillers, paranormals, romances and suspense.

3. 50 entries will be accepted.

4. Three finalists will get to submit 30 pages. From those 3 finalists, a grand prize winner will be selected to submit their FULL MANUSCRIPT!

5. Since the grand prize is a full manuscript submission, please (pretty please) only pitch COMPLETED AND POLISHED novels. 

The contest will go live at 8am EST.

Good luck!!!!

I'm not ready to pitch my ms, either. Not even sure if I can get it down to 25 words. Hmmm. I know which agent loves to do 25 word pitch contests, but I think he was already a judge in one of your contests. :)
