Winners!

Ms. LaPolla had a lot of wonderful things to say about the entries--and especially the winners:) She said she rearranged the order about a million times, but here's what she finally settled on:

First place: #8 CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE CYBORG

CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE CYBORG wins a full request!

Second place: #22 MANAS

MANAS wins a first-3-chapters request!

Third place: #3 SWIMMING WITH TCHAIKOVSKY

SWIMMING WITH TCHAIKOVSKY wins an in-depth query critique!

Winners, e-mail me at kvandolzer(at)gmail(dot)com for instructions on how to submit your manuscripts and/or queries to Ms. LaPolla.

And of course, THANK YOU, everyone, for participating in this month's contest, either as an entrant or a critiquer. We had a ton of great feedback flying around here last week, and it was GREAT.

I'm taking a break in August (I never could have foreseen how much time these contests would take), but I'll be back in September with another round of "An Agent's Inbox."

Thanks, Krista, for this great opportunity. It made me examine my query again and understand what wasn't working. Great contest! You ROCK!

Congrats winners! Thanks to Ms. LaPolla for the agent insight. And a special thanks to Krista, for giving up writing/personal time to help the rest of us. I hope you have a wonderful (and well-deserved) break.

I should clarify that I'm only taking "An Agent's Inbox" break, not an overall blogging break. Actually, we have an interactive interview with Meredith Barnes coming up this Friday, so definitely come back for that!

Congrats to all the winners!

I'm so glad everyone found this contest helpful and informative. That was my number-one goal with "An Agent's Inbox" - to help us all get a little better at writing queries and first pages.

And Kelly, thank you for the compliment. That means a lot, coming from you.

Congrats to the winners! Wonderful contest Krista. It seems it was very educational for all.

Hey Krista! I meant to cheer from the sidelines on this round, but we ended up going on vacation (which I helped plan but sort of forgot about until the last minute ... go figure). Anyway, this looks like it was another super round, and congratulations to all the winners!

Thanks for dropping by, Liesl!

Amy, I don't blame you for forgetting about a vacation. I hate packing, so I tend to ignore them until the absolute last minute:)
