November's Winners!

And the winners are in! Without further ado, here are Ms. Martindale’s favorite entries:


These entries win a request for the first 100 pages! Yay! Winners, please e-mail me at kvandolzer(at)gmail(dot)com for instructions on how to submit your partials to Ms. Martindale.

But that’s not all! If Ms. Martindale mentioned in her comment that she would read on after getting to the end of your first page, you may send a query letter and the first 10 pages of your manuscript to Ms. Martindale at submissions(at)fullcircleliterary(dot)com. That way, she can check out those extra pages and see if she’s interested in requesting more.

Thank you, Ms. Martindale, for taking the time to give such thoughtful feedback to each and every entry, and a big thank-you to everyone else for entering, critiquing, and cheering each other on.

You guys are so welcome! Good luck to all you winners (and all you runners-up)!

Taylor, I've had a few other agents say the same thing, that "An Agent's Inbox" entries overall are stronger than the average query. Hope you find a gem!
