In other news, there are some fantastic contests happening right now:
1. Natalie Fischer pitch contest over at YAtopia! I've seen a lot of pitch contests lately, and they're all great opportunities (particularly when the agent in question is otherwise closed to queries, as is the case here). If you're in the querying stage, don't miss out! You can find more info about Natalie Fischer here.
2. For those not yet querying, The Strangest Situation is having a fun ink blot contest with some really fabulous prizes including a three-chapter critique! Here's some information on what's included in the critique. Looks like a really great opportunity to get some feedback!
