That's all, folks!




Hook, Line & Sinker is DONE.

It has been an exciting, terrifying, brain-boggling couple of weeks, but we can now officially declare the Hook, Line and Sinker contest a SUCCESS! (And yes, over.) EVERY SINGLE ENTRY had at least one request, on all three blogs. *COMMENCES MAD CHEERING*

12 amazing agents made their comments and requests on the spectacular entries in all 3 categories – and much SQUEEing, panicking and even SIGNING ensued! Honestly, we couldn’t have hoped for a better calibre of submissions, and the participating agents showed the love across the board. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who took part: amazing agents, amazing writers, amazing secret fourth judge, and my amazing co-hosts. *MWAH*

Our secret fourth judge will be revealed in a couple of days in an interview where he will talk about pitching, choosing entries and his other general thoughts of awesomeness!

So now all that’s left is to declare it OPEN SEASON on the comments! This means that anyone can comment, whether it’s to add your constructive feedback on the entries, or for agents who weren’t a part of the #HLandS line-up to make their requests. Go ahead, don’t be shy now…

  9. Sorry, I'm late to the party. You did an amazing job at making sure this was one topnotch contest. I really didn't think I'd make it into the last tier and almost hated to withdraw.

    Thank you so much for all your hardwork and passion!
