Query Tracker Blog Agent Contest Tomorrow, April 13
Query Tracker is having a blurb contest tomorrow.
Agent Joanna Stampfel-Volpe of Nancy Coffey Literary will judge the one sentence hooks (also called loglines or blurbs) submitted in the contest.
The contest starts at April 13, 2009 at 9AM Eastern time, and runs for 24 hours, until 9AM Eastern time Tuesday April 14. For more information, here's the link:
Note: The official opening post will be on the querytracker blog April 13 at 9AM Eastern. So check there for the official rules.
For examples, here are two of my one-line blurbs--I will NOT be submitting these.
Lady of the Stars--A legend spanning time, and the man and woman caught in it.
Pumpkinnapper--Pumpkin thieves, a youthful love rekindled and a jealous goose, oh my.
Whether these two would win a contest is anybody's guess. But a little practice doesn't hurt.
So send out your blurbs and see what happens.
Thank you all,
