 :yay Thanks so much for posting the link, Sharon.

I've been happy dancing since I saw my PB made it to the agent round, and can't wait to see all the other Blueboarders who made it, too.

For all those who didn't make it this time, I'm sending tons of  :grouphug2 and  :chocolate2 and can't wait to cheer you on during the next contest.

I am so delighted to have made it to the agent round. Thank you Sharon for all your time and hard work!

I submitted the same manuscript last year and didn't make it as a finalist -- although the only thing that was similar was the title! I have spent the last year revamping the entire story, focusing in on a strong opening, and reworking my query. What a difference a year makes! Keep revising, revising, and revising some more!

Congratulations, Mindy and Lisa!! Both of your PBs are fantastic and I predict lots of requests!!

Mindy, your dancing, bubble blowing dragon made me smile! I predict Drake showing the bully kindness and with it teaching kids that bullies never win. :)

Lisa, really? That's awesome! Apparently this year has made all the difference in the world because I just loved Gracie. It's got lots of humor and such an important message to little girls in a super fun way.

Yes. Ditto to what Mindy said. If you didn't make it into the finals, it was because we had SO many amazing entries and only 20 (ha! Well 27---hope the agents don't mind which I'm sure they won't.) to fill. It's such a hard decision to make and we try very hard to give a lot of variety to the contest showcasing a little of everything.

So please keep querying. Keep writing. And keep entering contests. These contests are for fun and most authors sign with their agents the old fashioned way through the querying process.

Sharon, thank you so much to you and Michelle for putting this together. It was so exciting and so much fun. (Thank you also for the message you sent me- I tried to respond, but it said I wasn't allowed to send personal messages). I was so excited to make it to the final round- and then receiving a request made my whole week!!

Hi everyone! I wanted to quickly share my #PBParty success story. I had requests from 5 agents to see my full manuscript, and I received offers from two of those agents. I am now very happily represented by Natascha Morris of BookEnds! Hooray for #PBParty and thank you so much Sharon Chriscoe for all your hard work!
