October's Winners!

Without further ado, I give you Ms. Testerman’s winners!

Runners up:

#7 LOOP
#15 THE GEARS OF WAR

These entries win a request for the first 5 chapters and a synopsis!

First place: #2 SAVING ANDROMEDA

SAVING ANDROMEDA wins a full request!

Congratulations, winners! Please e-mail me at kvandolzer(at)gmail(dot)com for instructions on how to submit. And a big thank-you to Ms. Testerman, our entrants, and anyone and everyone who critiqued this round. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say we appreciate your participation.

But lest you think the excitement is over, we have an action-packed week coming up on the blog! Later this afternoon, I’ll post a few announcements. For now, you’ll have to settle for some hints: another query-critiquing opportunity, Steve’s query and first page, and another INTERACTIVE installment of “Interview with an Agent.” Stay tuned!
