For those participating as “agents,” here’s what they have to do:
You will read and respond to as many queries as you can. You will have one week to respond to all 50 queries. You can draft your own rejection letter and manuscript request letter (personalized or non-personalized, your choice), which you will paste in the comments section of each query. You might even provide some specific feedback to try and help the author if you're feeling extra conscientious.They have one week to respond to 50 queries (chosen from hundreds and hundred and hundreds submitted). Those people who have submitted queries that Nathan chose to use will get to see what is said and what their requested/rejected stats are.
You may request no more than five manuscripts, because hey, you're not going to have time for your clients if you request more than five manuscripts for every 50 queries.
And Nathan has thrown in a bit of a twist. Some of the queries are for books which actually sold. We’ll get to see how the “apprentice” agents responded to those.
So zip over and see the queries rolling in over the day. And then bookmark Nathan’s site so you can track this contest.
