For this round of Pass or Pages (http://operationawesome6.blogspot.com/2016/01/pass-or-pages-official-contest-rules.html) we will only be accepting Adult Mysteries/Thrillers. For future rounds we will feature other genres/categories.
So if you've written a mystery or thriller for adults, and it's complete and polished, read on!

This contest is for people looking for feedback on their query letter and first page. It would be ideal for someone who is about to start the query process, or who has already begun but isn't getting requests for more pages.

On January 11th at 7am EST we'll open the submission window. You'll fill out a form on the blog with all the pertinent information (contact info for us, query and first 250 words for the agents).

A random selector tool will choose five entries to be given to the agents. Operation Awesome reserves the right to disqualify entries if they don't fall within the genre guidelines, or if they fail to follow any of the other rules. Romantic Suspense will not be included in our definition of Mystery/Thriller for the purpose of this contest. Entrants selected for agent feedback will be informed by January 15th.

The winning entries with agent commentary will be posted on Operation Awesome the week of January 25th, one entry each day. If you aren't comfortable with having your entry (which will be anonymous) shared on the blog, please don't enter Pass or Pages!

Sounds like a great contest! I hope they do women's fiction soon!

We're planning on trying to do a variety of genres/age groups. Our Mystery Agent Contests tended to be pretty YA-heavy, so we're trying to expand a bit.

If anyone wants to see the feedback on the first round of entrants, all five of them are up on the site. We're planning on doing these quarterly on Operation Awesome.
