Xmas in July 2 Officially Begins!



It’s happening!


Below are fifteen of the thirty winning entries for the second annual Xmas in July Pitch Contest! (The other fifteen winners can be found over at Ruth Lauren Steven’s blog).


Agents will be dropping by to make requests over the next two days (July 18th and 19th). We respectfully ask that no one else comment on the entries during this time.


Agents, there is no limit to the number of requests each manuscript can receive. So if you see that an entry already has a request for a full, please feel free to make a similar request of your own. Really, we won’t mind. Requests can be made directly in the comment box for that entry.


We’ll be tweeting about the contest using the hashtag #XmasinJuly if you want to follow our progress or join in on the fun.


As a reminder, the participating agents are:


Adriann Ranta of Wolf Literary Services


Tracey and Josh Adams of Adams Literary


Becky Vinter of Fine Print Literary Management


Diana Fox of Fox Literary


Molly Jaffa of Folio Literary Management


Lucy Carson of Friedrich Literary Agency
