Not Your Average Response

Congratulations!!! So what happens now? Do they send you a critique? Have you gotten as far as querying agents or publishers even? Just curious :) Even if you don't win, it's got to feel great to be a finalist!

Well, there are two other finalists. Nephele Tempest from the Knight Agency is judging the finals which is why I entered. The winner is announced at the Spring Fling April 26th.

No I haven't queried anyone. But it definitely is a confidence boost. The preliminary judges are encouraged to make comments on the MS and there are score sheets which I'll get back at some point.
