If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

CAGI Auction and Stuff...

Hi Guys!

So, right around the time I was entering GUTGAA, I also entered CAGI (Come and Get it) over at Cupid's Literary Connection.  I was actually able to get my query and first 250 words in. I'm entry 29 if any of you guys want to check it out. I actually changed the very beginning of my entry (you can't change the actual entry) but I changed it down in my comments section, based on awesome feedback I got from people, so now I really need to know if the new beginning works. haha. If anyone could take a look, it would be greatly appreciated.

Anyway, even if you didn't get into CAGI, Cupid's Literary Connection is having an awesome auction over there that starts next week. A list of things being auctioned off: (as copied from Cupid's website)

Query Critique - offered by Molly Jaffa (Folio Literary Management, LLC)

50 Page Critique - offered by Natalie Lakosil (Bradford Literary Agency)

Phone Call - offered by Pam van Hylckama Vlieg (Larsen Pomada Literary Agency)

3 Chapter Critique - offered by Julia Alexandra Weber (J.A. Weber Literaturagentur GmbH)

Query Critique - offered by Linda Epstein (The Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency)

Phone Call - offered by Terrie Wolf (AKA Literary, LLC)

So, if you haven't bookmarked her page yet, get over there and check it out. Good luck to any fellow CAGI entries  and I wish you guys all the best of luck in the auction. See you over there!


  1. Hi Tamara! Nice to meet you! Welcome to the blogoshpere and good luck on your entries. It sounds like a cool story. It's kind of mind boggling participating in so many events, isn't it?? :D

    1. Hi PK. Yes, it definitely is. I'm in like three different things right now. GUTGAA, CAGI and a kissing scene contest over on LUV YA (in which I made the top five) yay! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  2. I definitely need to get over to Cupid's. I've seen a lot of fabulous contests through there on other people's blogs, but keep forgetting to follow. Good luck with both contests!

  3. Thanks so much, Lara. I could use all the luck I can get. :)

  4. I haven't read your revised version yet. I'll have to go check it out. :) I revised my query based on all the awesome comments I got. I'm using the revised version for GUTGAA.

    1. I actually have a revised version of both the query and my first 150 up on here now, if you want to tell me what you think? Thanks!!


I love to hear from everyone! Thanks for the comment. :)
