My mother-in-law has a knack for winning contests. Door prizes, giveaways, raffles. You name it, she wins it. My son also has the gift. So far, he’s won books (twice), a gift basket of water toys and a bike.
Since I lack the gift of winning effortlessly, I try to make up for it by entering writing contests. The one I entered a few months ago worked out well, so now I’m entering the 15th free Dear Lucky Agent contest, sponsored by the Guide to Literary Agents blog.
Chuck Sambuchino and the GLA blog have been instrumental in helping me identify agents to query for Some Flew North. I was thrilled to see the current contest focuses on Young Adult fiction. Fingers crossed!
