Without any ado, the winners:

Best query: #12 NO SUCH THING
Runner-up: #29 VIOLENT DELIGHTS

NO SUCH THING wins a critique of the first 50 pages!

VIOLENT DELIGHTS wins a copy of one of Ms. Sarver's clients' books, either Sangu Mandanna's THE LOST GIRL or Kim Culbertson's INSTRUCTIONS FOR A BROKEN HEART!

Best first page: #16 IN SIN
Runners-up: #7 BEYOND THE CASTLE WALL and #8 CRAZY DEEP

IN SIN also wins a critique of the first 50 pages!

And BEYOND THE CASTLE WALL and CRAZY DEEP also win copies of one of Ms. Sarver's clients' books, either Sangu Mandanna's THE LOST GIRL or Kim Culbertson's INSTRUCTIONS FOR A BROKEN HEART!

Congratulations, all! Please e-mail me at kvandolzer(at)gmail(dot)com for details on how to claim your prizes.

Oh, and I also randomly selected winners for my RUMP giveaway. I decided to pick two, since I kept you waiting for an extra day, and here they are:

Angela Citte and S.M. #12 (who also snagged one of Ms. Sarver's top spots!)

Angela and S.M., please e-mail me at kvandolzer(at)gmail(dot)com as well so I can get your copies of RUMP in the mail!

Last but not least, a very big round of applause for everyone who entered and/or critiqued and especially for  Ms. Sarver. This round of "An Agent's Inbox" was a huge success, and that's all thanks to you. I really appreciate it.

There's a lot more excitement coming up on the blog later this week, including all the juicy details on "The Writer's Voice" (which we plan to post this Thursday Friday), so do come back and check those out. Until then!

Thanks for holding the contest! The critiques were very useful.

Now that it's all done, I'm thinking of posting my revised pitch at the bottom of my entry.

Just wanted to thank you for hosting this. And thank Ms. Sarver for all of her comments. It was so helpful to go back and read what she had written about each of the entries.

All of the other critiques were helpful too!

Congrats to the winners!

Thanks for playing, everyone! I'm glad you found it fun AND helpful.

Also, we decided to hold off on posting "The Writer's Voice" details until tomorrow, but now the post's scheduled and everything, so it should go up first thing tomorrow morning!
