Agent in The Alley: Pitch Contest!!!

Today is the day! We at NA Alley are hosting a pitch contest for all of you aspiring authors! Lauren Hammond of ADA Management Group will read all of the pitches and subsequently judge. She'll be requesting partials or fulls from the pitches that catch her eye! Here are the rules, courtesy of Bailey Kelsey at the Alley. :) 

Your manuscript must be complete and polished, and it must fall into the New Adult (NA) category to be considered. The submissions window will open August 8 at 12:01 am EST and will remain open until 75 pitches are submitted OR until 11:59 pm EST. To enter, you will be required to submit via comment the following:

  • Name:
  • Email:
  • Title:
  • Genre:
  • Word Count:
  • Blurb:
  • First 250 Words:

Your blurb should be the meaty part of your query, not over 200 words, and make sure you spend the next several weeks polishing your whole manuscript, not just that first 250 word excerpt Lauren is looking for. You do not need to follow our blog to participate -- but if you want to stay up-to-date on further details about this pitch contest, and be informed about future contests, you really should. (follow NA Alley right here.) 

There will only be a limited window of time for entrants to get their pitches in. To have a chance at this once-in-a-blogspot opportunity, go to the NA Alley Homepage by clicking on the highlighted link. You will also get a lot more information about entry requirements and rules. 

Share the news on Twitter, Facebook and on your blogs - 
and GOOD LUCK! :)
