Are you guys excited?! BECAUSE I AM!!!
Below this post, you guys will find the ten submissions that I picked to be on my team (the SC Spooks, the winning team for sure).
|Yea. Just try to beat us. Just try. WE ARE THE #SCSpooks!!! (Seriously,|
I LOVE the submissions on my team.)
(I don't own this picture.)
You can head over to see Michelle's and Mike's team as well (just click on their names, but don't worry, our team is scarier than theirs). All in all, we have picked thirty submissions from our pile of about a hundred to be on our teams!
Once again, don't worry if you didn't make it in. Read this post and know that I mean every word of it. Also, for everyone that didn't make it into the contest, I'll put a post after the contest is over on which you can comment and request a brief critique on your submission.
BUT BEFORE WE GO BARGING IN, THERE ARE SOME GUIDELINES!!!!
Commenting for the Entrants/Audience:
Sorry guys, but no commenting, cheerleading, etc. on the entries. We hosts discussed this issue, and we agreed that it'd lead to too much unfairness and unconscious biases. Only agents will be able to comment on the entries :D
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Do all your cheering in the comments of this post, or do it over Twitter!!!! We're going to be under the hashtag #NightmareQuery and we will be having FUN. So vent, be nervous, cheer each other on, and hold hands. (I said this in Query Kombat and I'll say it again; one of the best parts of contests is seeing how the writer's community gathers and supports each other.)
Also, those on our team, we're the:
so let's cheer over Twitter :D I am SC_Author.
Commenting for the Agents:
You agents will have awesomely scary ways to request in the contest.
You can scream for a full request.
You can shriek for a 50 page request.
You can shiver for a 10 page request.
And you can make as many requests as you want! So go wild :D We have some awesome talent up for you guys to peruse.
To add on, for the agents: I deleted the things in the query such as the authors' names, links, greetings, closings, thank-you's, some of the bio, etc.
Also, agents, because of my slightly crazed tendency to organize, the posts run from oldest age-category to youngest, and within those groups, they go from most fantastical, to most realistic, to most scary (so fantasy -> historical -> contemporary -> horror). Why? Well, I saw ten posts to be organized and I was like, yeah, well, why not.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! Hope you all get a ton of frighteningly amazing requests! (*Fingers crossed*)
