    So glad to hear it was helpful. This was definitely a learning process, as it was the first time organizing for all of us. We've gotten lots of feedback and are hoping to make it even better next year!

    I had a lot of fun this year, WriteonCon is always a blast. I'm glad it came back.

    Do we know which ninja was which agent, or were they never de-cloaked?

    So glad to hear it! We left it up to the ninjas as to whether they revealed themselves. But we do encourage anybody who gets a request to ask the ninja agent who they are if they don't reveal it at that time.

    I definitely recommend checking out the fundraiser. There are so many fabulous authors, agents, and editors offering their services. You've got about a week and a half left to snag a really reasonably priced critique.

    When do the fundraising perks become available for use? I bought a first ten pages perk and I'd like to know when we're expected to submit to them and how. I'll be a first time participant in the con.

    You'll get an email letting you know when/how to submit for your critique. I purchased mine on November 2, then received my instructions on the 11th. I submitted a day later and got my 50-pager back within the week. Turnaround time depends on the critiquer's schedule.

    Awesome, nabbed a 5 page critique from an agent. My opening needs work and I don't know where to start, so this is perfect.

    I believe the Early Bird discounts end today, so get in quick if you want discounted entry.
