New Agent (Submission: varies)

A special contest to welcome newer agents to publishing. This happens whenever I can get a large enough group of New Agents–usually in July. New agents are a great resource as they are more actively building their client list. Five expert mentors form their own team of Mystery/Thriller, SFF, Contemporary, Romance/WF, or Middle Grade and then host their team on their own blogs for agents to request. I also have a small team. Around 32 entries are picked.

For middle grade, young adult, new adult, and adult. All genres.

Submission varies. Watch my newsletter for updates (#NewAgent).


I also mentor for Pitchwars, a contest formerly run by Brenda Drake. For this contest I’m only looking for adult submissions. You’ll have to wait to learn more about my wishlist during the mentor blog hop.

Submission: August, 2018
