Winners of Query Kombat Round 1!!!!

Well, Round 1 of this crazy contests officially ended last night. We promised blood and blood there was.

A full 32 entries out of the 64 lost in a valiant fight - you should have seen us hosts and the judges freak out over Twitter and in the comments of the entries about how hard it was to choose.

the Host Saves

These are three entries that we three hosts will pick from our teams to move on to the agent round but not on to Round 2. Check out Michelle's and Mike's picks as well.

I picked my host save by which entry I thought was the most unique. There was no way I'd be able to choose based on my favorite, what I'd want to read the most, or what I think would get the most requests. That's just impossible from such a strong group of entries. So I went for the wildest, craziest, funnest entry I saw :)

My Host Save will be:

Strange Fruit! Congrats!!!

For all other #Writerbees, fallen and standing, DON'T EVER GIVE UP!!!

You can revise any part of your entry and we recommend you use the suggestions you received in Round (and your gut, of course) to make the revisions! Use the same format we gave for sending in submissions to send in your revisions.

Congrats everyone!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see you all at the agent round! Also: how was/is your experience in Query Kombat?
