Baker's Dozen starts Fri!

While I finish up NaNoWriMo (so close!) here's a little something from Miss Snark's First Victim Baker's Dozen. Make sure you you take a good look at her auction; it's a great way to see what agents are looking for. Your book may be next!

Happy writing and ¡Buen Provecho!

The 60 winning entries for our Baker's Dozen Auction will post THIS FRIDAY! You're in for a treat.

I'll be posting all the itty-bitty details about the auction on Thursday. In the meantime, here are a few important tidbits:

  • Critiquing may begin IMMEDIATELY. I will ask you to hold off on critiquing during the actual bidding window next week.
  • WINNERS: If you see any formatting issues or want to change anything once you see your post, please email me at facelesswords(at) WITH THE TITLE OF YOUR NOVEL IN THE SUBJECT LINE. I will make the changes.
  • NON-WINNERS: I will be posting instructions on how to submit your excerpt to one of our 10 guest blogs for public critique. Please remember that this is OPTIONAL; you don't have to participate if you don't want to.

I'm excited! Spread the word to your writing friends and communities; this is going to be wonderful to watch as well as to participate in. The posts are already in the queue and ready to post automatically. I'm finally getting to the point where I can sit back and watch things unfold.

Well, almost. A few more emails and last-minute details. Then the fun will begin!

Another word of thanks for your donations, too. Just a reminder that all donations from this point forward will go to admin. I'm going to be placing the book order for my library this week, so I can no longer accept donations for books.

You can donate at any time during the auction. Again, thank you. I am repeatedly humbled by your generosity.

Okay -- onward! Many sparkles ahead.


  1. How exactly do you enter for this? Or is it too late?

  2. Sorry, Jasmine, it is too late for this one. But she has contests every month that can put you in the hands of a great agent. I highly recommend checking out the auction though - you'll see what agents are bidding on and that will give you a good idea of which agents are looking for your kind of work. Good luck!
