Question Regarding First Line Contest:

August 28, 2008 | Karin's Blog | 10 comments

Would y’all rather have an A list agent as final judge or an editor from one of the New York five? Please chime in. I’ll give y’all until Sunday and make my decision based on the comments. And don’t forget, I’ll be chatting over at Murder She Writes Friday.



  1. Lee

    Hmmm,,,both sound good. But if I had a choice I’d go with the editor. Because they are after all the bottom line on a book.

  2. B.E. Sanderson

    I know it’s probably not helpful, but either one would work for me. On the one hand, an agent would be nice because I don’t have one yet. On the other hand, so would an editor (and for the same reason).

    So, when are you thinking about taking the leap into the next contest?

  3. Holly D

    I agree 100% with B.E. and for the same reason, no agent no editor…yet. See Karin, I’m thinking positive. And as always, you rock for doing this contest. I can’t wait.

  4. Edie

    I’m with Lee, but either would be great. I’m amazed you can do this with everything else you have going.

    Popping in real quick. I’m planning on launching the next First Line Contest right after Thanksgiving! Yanno, to add more stress to the upcoming holidays!

    Yanno, to add more stress to the upcoming holidays!

    Your holiday present to your unpubbed writer friends. 😀

    I agree with Lee and go with the editor. Thanks Karin for running this contest again.
