I'd like to thank everyone who participated in #yahugs.
I need to share an observation with you. (Sorry it's the teacher in me.) No matter if you are submitting to a contest, to an editor, or to an agent, you must follow directions. Reading the directions and doing what they say can be a matter of whether your submission will be read, marked ineligible, requested, or rejected. Why am I saying this? Because numerous people did NOT follow the contest direction. You were to submit your query letter and that was all for round one. I hope that this will be a learning experience for all of us.
Without further a due...
The round one winner of #yahugs, in no particular order:
- Donna McDine - Images of the Past
- Yamile Mendez - A Chair of Every Color
