Speed Date 2 -- Grand Prize Winner Announcement!

We are thrilled to announce the winner of Speed Date 2 – Brandy Shockley!! Brandy's YA manuscript definitely caught Deidre's attention, and she will receive a critique and mentoring from Deidre with an eye toward possible representation. This was a very tough competition, and both agents were extremely excited to see another great crop of writers submit their stories. Please join us in giving a BIG congrats to Brandy!

Also, I think some of you might have forgotten, but there is one more matter to settle... One person was randomly drawn from the initial 125 recipients to receive a first chapter critique. The winner of that prize was Christine Gallimore.

We just want to thank all of you who followed this competition from start to finish. We love interacting with everyone on the blog, and will continue to do this kind of unique contests as long as there is a demand. While we’re taking a rest from the contest circuit for a bit, always remember that you can query us via our regular channel at Submissions@KnightAgency.net.

Congratulations Brandy! Your heart must be soaring... :)

Deidre and Pamela, I am wondering if you would be willing to share the breakdown of different genre's that made it into the top ten or fifteen manuscripts selected. It would be so interesting!

Thanks!
