I just have a few minutes before I pass out from sleep deprivation, so I wanted to pass on a couple of great links to contests going on.
1. Kidlit.com, hosted by Mary Kole (an Andrea Brown Lit. Agent) has a great contest for query letters for any kid's book (YA, MG, PB) until Oct. 31st.
(2. Unfortunately we just missed Nathan Bransford's first paragraph contest, but still check out the results. It was an awesome one to follow.)
3. Writer's Digest is having their Popular Fiction Contest. The grand prize is $2,500 and entries are good till Nov. 2nd.
There are more, but these were the two that interested me. Let me know if you know of others that you yourselves might try out!
