Got the heads up on this from my cyber friend, Liz Brooker. ::waves at Liz::
From 15 December 2008 to 15 January 2009, Firebrand Literary is accepting chapters of your manuscript without benefit of a query letter.
So those of you who suck at query letters ::raises hand::, this might be a godsend.
What They're Looking For
Unfortunately, the agents there aren't looking for my particular genre.
The agents are primarily looking for children's books, YA (that is, Young Adult), and MG (Middle Grade). They even say they'd look at picture books for what they're calling a "Query Holiday."
The specific info can be found here.
Go For It!
If you write in any of what they're looking for, your ms. is finished, what the heck - go for it! Go to the website and follow their instructions to the letter. There are only three instructions to follow, so this isn't rocket science (to use a well-worn cliche).
So get cracking! And good luck! :-)
Love and kisses,
