"The Writer's Voice" wrapped up last week, and for the second year in a row, Team Krista won! We ended up with 30 total votes, but even cooler than that, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY TEAMMATES landed at least one vote. I call that a smashing success!

#8: FUTURESHOCK Mollie Glick, Monika Verma

DEATH AND THE GLASSMAKER'S DAUGHTER, WISHING, and WATER LILY also picked up behind-the-scenes requests from Red Ninja and Laura Bradford of Bradford Literary Agency. Woohoo!

Don't miss "The Writer's Voice" Twitter Pitch Party going on TODAY. Random agents will be checking out the pitches on the hashtag #PitMad until 8:00 p.m. EDT (or 5:00 p.m. PDT), so come up with those 140-character-or-less pitches quick!

Last but not least, a huge thank-you to everyone who entered, everyone who commented, the agents who voted, Kimberly for taking care of all our technological hiccups, and especially my fellow coaches, Cupid, Brenda, and Mónica. I couldn't have asked for a better bunch of bloggers to work with (alliteration intended). Thanks for putting up with me and my speed-reading:)
