I think every writer in the world knows about the Firebrand Literary Agency Query Holiday by now. Unless maybe you've been hiding out in a cave somewhere, or taken a break from the Internet (though I don't know how you've survived this long), or maybe just been catching up with real-life family and friends.
Maybe you've submitted your first chapter, maybe you haven't. If not, polish that baby up and submit it. Make sure you read over the rules, then send it in. I know of one talented QT'er who has received a full request from this contest. You've still got fifteen days until the deadline, and this would be a great goal for the new year. It's just one chapter. One bitty chapter. Oh, and then get the rest of your novel in tip top shape for when that full request comes.
Our goal here at the QueryTracker blog is to bring you agency news and contests, and this is the first installment. You can click here to see what Authoress has up her sleeve in January, and we'll post specifics as they are leaked on anything else we hear about.
