I’m very excited to share this post today and welcome a fabulous group of writers to TEAM SUN! There were many amazing entries, and the selection process was very difficult for Michelle and I this year. Please remember that we not only picked based on what caught our eye, but had to consider what participating agents want as well.
My choices are listed below by category in no particular order. If your entry was not selected, please remember we only had 32 spots for over 200 entries.
Just to let you in on a little secret, I was selected for Pitch Madness, and received a few requests, but ended signing with my agent via the slush pile (six months later). So remember, DON’T GIVE UP! We each have our own individual path in this crazy world of publishing. Keep writing, keep working, and it WILL happen one day.
After you check out my picks, hop over to Michelle’s blog to see the list for TEAM SNOW!

Now for the important part:
Your final revised entry must be back to me no later than Thursday, February 18 at 3:00 pm EST. That’s so I have time to format the entries and have them ready to post for the agent round on Monday, February 22 (please don’t make me hunt you down!) Mail your revised entry to the contest email Sunversussnow (at) yahoo (dot) com. Please use the exact same format.
After that, it will be up to the agents to decide! Congrats and good luck to everyone!
