Welcome, Pitchers!!! Welcome, Judges!!! Welcome, One and All!!!
Wish I had a trumpet fanfare for you!
Today my blog is honored to co-host the GUTGAA Small Press Pitch Contest! The entries in the ADULT category are conveniently listed on my sidebar. 101 pitches made their way through the emailing round on Friday and the hardworking, never failing Deana Barnhart sorted them all out into four categories. The other blogs co-hosting this week are Deana, Juliana Brandt and Ink In The Book. Due to the imbalance of entries, there will be a proportionate number of winners per category:
Adult: 31 (8 finalists will be picked)
YA Contemporary/YA Historical: 22 (5 finalists will be picked)
Other YA: 36 (9 finalists will be picked)
NA & MG: 12 (3 finalists will be picked)
The finalists will be narrowed down by wonderful mystery judges who will indicate their votes in the comments. Here are the mystery judges' names for the Adult entries on my blog:
Slave to the Muse
NOTES: Ties will be broken by other judges in the contest. Winners will be announced on Friday. Next Monday, Deana will post the 25 finalists on her site for the final round of judging. And if you have any questions, I will try to answer, but Deana is the most knowledgeable. This is so exciting! There are so many great books-to-be out there! GOOD LUCK!!!
