Purple Prose Contest Is Now Open!

The QueryTracker server is back up again and the submission form is working.  Send those entries our way.  

The QueryTracker Carnival Purple Prose Contest is now officially underway. Enter one sentence in our online form for your chance to win one of three prizes.  Click here for rules.

Simply entering gets your name into a drawing for a free writer's website design by Purple Squirrel Design (a prize worth $600). Every contest you enter this week and next, puts your name in the drawing for this grand prize.  

The contest runs from today, May 19th, until Monday, May 25th at 9:00 am.  That's seven days to purple up.  

Rules, details, examples and the link to the entry form are in a previous post, which can be found here

Don't forget to nominate your favorite literary agent for QT Carnival King and Queen by emailing Suzette in the address in the sidebar to the right.  The post about QT King and Queen is here.  
On Thursday, Michelle is opening the anagram contest in celebration of QueryTracker's second anniversary.  

Good luck!

Is anyone else having a hard time getting to the online form? It's not loading when I click on the link...just wondering.

Hi, Kristi!

The main QueryTracker server is temporarily down. Once the server is up and running, you'll be able to access the form through the link again.

Sorry for the confusion.

Mary Lindsey / Marissa Clarke said...

I'm so sorry, Kristi. The sites should be running soon. We have no idea why they are down.

If they aren't up by tomorrow morning, feel free to email it to me at my address in the sidebar of the blog. Be sure to include a contact email and your name. Thanks. :)

Server Down on QT:

I'm getting withdrawal symptoms! Somebody, please, fix it!

Besides, I have yet one more rejection to record. Wouldn't want to miss that pleasure.

Rebecca Knight said...

Haha, I'm having withdrawals, too. Thank you H.L. and Mary for being all over it :). We love you guys!

Any news on QT? I'm getting shaky and needing tranquilizers. I can't send out any worthless queries without the right info from QT! Damn you, Patrick! You've made yourself indispensible!

I sent my submission I think before the crash, any way of confirming?
Also, where are the Anagram details?

Patrick said...

Jeremy- All entries submitted on the form before the crash came through fine, but if you want to confirm you can try submitting again. If your first is in there you'll receive a message saying so.

Anagram contest is here http://querytracker.blogspot.com/2009/05/carnival-game-anagram-anarchy.html

Are you in Montana? I'm in Billings.
