Calling All Urban Fantasy and Romance...

Get those manuscripts ready, because Query Tracker is about to have their next contest!

Be one of the first fifty on Monday morning, 9am eastern to enter your first two pages and a one paragraph blurb about your novel to the form on Query Tracker's main site:

The submission form will go live at 9 AM EST, and only the first 50 entries will be accepted. So get your one-paragraph blurb ready. And your first two pages. Ms.Emmanuelle Alspaugh at Judith Erlich Literary Management will be requesting material from the contest entries.

Ms. Alspaugh represents Danielle Younge-Ullman (Falling Under), Alissa Johnson (As Luck Would Have It), Jenny Brown (Lord Lightning), Marcella Burnard (Enemy Within), Laurie London (Bonded by Blood), Christina Phillips (His Forbidden Princess), and Jordan LaRousse and Samantha Sade (Oysters and Chocolate). Her nonfiction authors include food writer and memoirist Adrienne Kane (Cooking and Screaming), family therapist Catherine McCall (When the Piano Stops), and Marie Claire editor Sarah Wexler (Living Large).

Though she also represents women’s fiction, historical fiction, and young adult fiction, the only genres that will be accepted in this current contest are romance and urban fantasy.

Good luck to everyone who enters!

I used to do contests, but after finding my odds of winning them were parallel to the lotto, I just stopped. :)
