Shelley Walters over at Is It Hot In Here, Or Is It This Book? is hosting a fabulous first page contest of awesomeness.
The quick gist of it? Post the first 250 words of your manuscript for a chance to win a 10-page critique! For all in-depth details of what you need to do, please check out Shelly's website, but believe me, it's easy-peasy!
And the guest agent? Judith Engracia of Liza Dawson and Associates. Judith is currently building her client list and looking for all types of fiction, especially middle grade, young adult, urban fantasy, steampunk, and paranormal romance.
Now I will say, I tend to shy away from posting my actual writing on my site, but the contest sounded too good to pass up. So without further ado, here's my 250-word submit. I'd love to hear all comments, but just remember, I know where you live. :)
