The opening for one of my manuscripts was chosen for an "agent auction" where agents will look at select manuscripts and bid on the number of pages they'd be willing to read. Please visit http://misssnarksfirstvictim.blogspot.com/2012/11/44-mg-multicultural-dias-de-los-muertos.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MissSnarksFirstVictim+%28Miss+Snark%27s+First+Victim%29 to see my entry and leave constructive criticism if you'd like. Huge thanks to the Authoress--she's worked countless hours pulling together her biggest contest of the year, and this is such an amazing opportunity for all of us!

Beautiful!
"People have told me that this reminds them of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Maybe one year the Pirates franchise will make a Christmas special and THIS could be the theme song! Instead of Carol of the Bells it could be titled "Jack Sparrow of the Bells." =)
