It's a tie!

Let me start this off by saying this was much harder than I imagined.  All of the pitches were A-mazing, and I spent time reading through each, popping on to websites and narrowing down the finalists.  And it was hard - did I mention that? Like I considered making everyone a winner hard.  In the end, I couldn't choose just one pitch.  I chose two winners and three honorable mentions.  Both winners get the 50 page critique and the honorable mentions receive a first page email critique.

In no particular order, the honorable mentions and first page critique winners are:
Monica Zepeda - The Why of Kelly McNeill
Kimberley Miller - Triangles
Katherine Sheridan Kupanoff - Black Lace and the Clocktower

And the winners of the 50 page manuscript critiques are:

Emy Shin - The Paradox of You and Me
Jenna Wallace - Somniloquy

Congrats to all the winners!  And believe me, many more of you were close and a lot of it came down to personal taste.

Winners email me for the details:
