Winners Have Ben Announced

Thanks to everyone who participated in Kathleen Ortiz's contest. I loved all the answers and was really touched by some of emotional responses.

Check out Neverending Page Turner to see who won. She's also got information about her regular submission guidelines and an upcoming blog about book trailers, which I'm looking forward to.

New Fabulous Contest!

If you've written a YA novel and are hoping to catch the notice of a fantastic agent, this is the contest for you. Grand Prize is a 30 page critique from literary agents Kathleen Ortiz, Mandy Hubbard and Victoria Marini and a signed hardcover of DECEPTION. Two runners up will receive signed paperback editions of DECEPTION.

Kathleen Ortiz is an Associate Agent and Foreign Rights Manager at Lowenstein Associates.

Mandy Hubbard is a is the author of Prada & Prejudice and You Wish. She is also a literary agent for D4EO Literary.

Victoria Marini is an Assistant Agent at Gelfman Schneider Literary.

All three of them will read and critique the first 30 pages of your manuscript.

I would have loved this when I was querying agents. Actually, I'd still love it, because it's always wonderful to have professionals evaluate your manuscript to let you know what works and what doesn't.

CONTEST DETAILS at KathleenOrtiz.com. The sweet, kind, wonderful Kathleen is responsible for this contest. So be nice and thank her! And be quick about it. Contest Ends Friday July 9!

And if you don't win this contest, but still would like to win a copy of DECEPTION, follow me on twitter: @LeeXNichols. I tweet about new contests all the time.
